Based on unverified data, it seems he had dangerous tendencies for several years now. I don't know whose texts are these, the first screenshot is from another forum's similar thread back in April (by user "mego") http://forums.hipinion.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=106628

To be fair, if you look into lyrics of some of his known favourites, off the top - Suicide (they even collaborated), Hasil Adkins

 

That goes like this

 

 

Come on baby, don't you be late

I want your head, I want it tonight
Cut your head of at half past eight
I'll have it on my wall about a half past ten
 
Yeah, come on baby, I want that head
Come on baby, I want that head
I want your head to hang on my wall tonight
Now honey, don't you be afraid
'Cause I'm gonna cut your head off
About a half past eight
 
Just like I said, I'm gonna cut your head off
And you can eat no more hot dogs
Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha

 

Or this

 

 

Frankie is so desperate

He's gonna kill his wife and kids
Frankie's gonna kill his kid
Frankie picked up a gun
 
Pointed at the six month old in the crib
Oh Frankie
(scream)
Frankie looked at his wife
 
Shot her
(screams)
"Oh what have I done?"
Let's hear it for Frankie
 
Frankie Teardrop
Frankie put the gun to his head
(screams)
Frankie's dead
 
(screams)
 
Frankie's lying in hell
(screams)
 
We're all Frankies
We're all lying in hell
(screams)

 

It kinda makes sense, despite art and all

of course, i was being sarcastic, but yes, those lyrics... here he talks about a similar band called whitehouse. it's all about provocation, nothing else.

 

 

tho i was always somehow worried about him cause of his affect that's kind of distant and shallow... but it could be a normal variation, he seems like a normal guy

Yeah I really love his work, discovered in my legendary swap mart vinyl crate I bought like 12 years ago (along with afx, autechre, soul slinger acetates, dj krush, lots of test pressings and deleted jungle stuff, etc.). It was Vakio sampler 10 inch. Some of the most blissful ultra-minimal stuff I'd ever heard.

 

Very sad that he has passed.

 

That Amoeba video is great, some of his fav lps sound really cool, definitely going to explore some of those composers.
