Bill Rieflin...

Man. As a drummer myself, this is a rough one. I was always a huge ministry/pigface/kmfdm fan.

So sad. The guy was a beast.

He and Martyn Atkins are 2 of my favorite all-time drummers. If y'all haven't checked out Pigface - Gub, please do. It's essentially nothing but drums with vocals on top. Bill really shines on Bushmaster & Weightless. Also, the track "War Ich Nicht..." is a mind-blower. I always wondered if the two drummers drifted in and out and in and out of sync during the recording or if they just slowed down the 2 tape tracks. Either way, it's fucking genius and I can't compare it to anything else I've ever heard. 

Huge RIP

Paul "Bear" Vasquez aka "Double Rainbow guy" has died. I have always non-ironically loved this video and it was from the best time of YouTube

Damn. Bill Rieflin was one of those names that would continually pop up when I read liner notes as a teenager. He was part of so many things that I liked, his name kind of became a reassurance of quality.

Requiascat in pace.

Skateboarder Jeff Grosso has died at age 51. Surreal to see him posting videos of him and his kid on instagram within the last couple days. It's unexpected, an apparent heart attack.

He had a great running segment on YT called "Loveletters to Skateboarding"

I'd literally never heard of john prine until yesterday and suddenly everyone on social media is the biggest fan ever and is "shocked" and "dismayed" at his passing and talking about how he was "one of the most creative people... ever" ??? I'm listening now and it's nice but this kind of collective social media obit crap is annoying, esp for millenials who act like they have some deep boomer connection to this stuff. like when etta james died

I actually liked the guy and listened to his stuff because I like that era of country music but yeah...I know what you mean. It's also hard not to roll my eyes when I see music publications write gushing news blurbs and sometimes even follow up features on musicians they barely acknowledged in the past.

Malcolm Dixon passed away at 66. Little person with roles in some major fantastical films. Along with Time Bandits, ROTJ, and Willy Wonka he had roles in Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and Crystal.

since we're going obscure on this page (rip to all the above, i'd only heard of malcom dixon though)..

Michael Sorkin passed away last week from COVID.  Great architectural critic and writer.  I highly recommend his book Twenty minutes in manhattan
