Ray Liotta
At least we still have Ray Lamontagne so that’s pretty good.

In 1995, I was at a Yo La Tengo concert in Koln, Germany the night Dave Gahan attempted suicide. I thought I heard Ira Kaplan make a snarky comment about it from the stage...but this many years later I'm going to give old Ira the benefit of the doubt and say that I must have misheard him.

That;s my best Depeche Mode story.

when I was a kid, we used to pretend that their first MTV video "I just can't get enough" was in fact a commercial for a erectile dysfunction

while I know Yada has the pulse of the underground hip-hop acts...this was local

Justin Johnson, who performed under the name 23 Rackzs, was killed in the 2200 block of Savannah Terrace, Southeast, around 11:24 am on Thursday, May 26, Metropolitan Police said.

Johnson was reportedly filming a video outside of his home when he was shot,

Alan White - drummer Yes, among other bands

https://apnews.com/article/entertainment-music-united-kingdom-beb8f116767271c36e31e33f753c0645

He died on the previous page.

It was a Alan White sample from the Yes recording session for 90125 that launched Art Of Noise

During January 1983, Horn's team were working on the Yes comeback album 90125 – Horn as producer, Langan as engineer, and Dudley and Jeczalik providing arrangements and keyboard programming. During the sessions, Jeczalik and Langan took a scrapped Alan White drum riff and sampled it into the Fairlight using the device's Page R sequencer (the first time an entire drum pattern had been sampled into the machine). Jeczalik and Langan then added non-musical sounds on top of it, before playing the track to Horn. This in turn resulted in the Red & Blue Mix of Yes's "Owner of a Lonely Heart" single, which showcased the prototype sound of The Art of Noise.

art of noise was amazing and still holds up today
Art of Noise - Close (To The Edit)
this video blew my mind as a little hatch


this is neat...them doing it live in 2004

this is funny
people didn’t know where we had come from. We were often labelled radical underground dance artists. We even got an award in the US for best black act of 1984
https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/jul/03/how-we-made-art-of-noise-close-to-the-edit-anne-dudley-paul-morley

didn't know this either
 I love to say that we’re the third most sampled group of all time. The proudest for me was the Prodigy on Firestarter. They wanted our “Hey”, the one on Close (to the Edit) – no other would do. The royalties kept me in coffees for many years.
