Mark Fisher RIP


Guessing some would have seen the news over the weekend that Mark Fisher had passed away aged only 48.

Literally only came across his work because of a post I saw on this site a few months ago so I read Ghosts of My Life and a few things I could find online. Really gutted I didn’t find him sooner or get to see him speak and even this brief dip into his work is enough to have left me pretty sad to hear he’s gone.

Anyway, a nice piece on The Quietus:


fucking hell, i hadn’t seen this (barely been online all weekend). that’s proper shit, though. i’ve been reading him loads recently.


something really devastating about this, i guess maybe because he talked so much about how depression and society/politics are linked.

there have been some lovely tributes to him


Both of those posts are great.

The more I read the more I get the feeling we could really be doing with his voice right now. But the good news is it’s obvious he’s inspired plenty of people who’ll be willing to take up the reigns.
