i just heard luc ferrari referred to as the late luc ferrari, a sad and devastating thing to hear.
if you're not familiar with his work- i won't make an ass of myself here trying to describe the music he made, but i will urge you to check out some of his sounds
several years back blue chopsticks put out his-cycle des souvenirs (1995-2000) an incredible record full of whispers and firecrackers (literally).
there is a photo on the back cover of him sitting on a ledge in headphones w/tape recorder and microphone recording the desert
luc ferrari dead...why couldn't it have been wayne coyne instead? or that aging drunk ron wood? or eric "fartbag" clapton?
