Happy Music Monday! The bizarre musical banshee of 2016 has claimed more than just big artists. Today Scott pays tribute to five really cool musicians who passed recently. He liked them all, but they aren't really the sort of musicians who could support a whole blog post. Nevertheless, they did their thing and did it well.
No one ever talks about how Negativland's U2 might actually have been the reason that U2 started paying attention to sampling and video art. The stuff U2 did while touring in the 1990s was almost a direct steal from Negativland's style of art. I was lucky enough to see Negativland a few times in my life, and it was always something interesting and different. I wouldn't have noticed the guy if he passed me on the street, but I think I might have loved this particular Negativland the most.
Hopefully, we're all done with the doom after this. Four more comin' up.
