I knew he’d been ill for a while but this is gutting
What a hero & a pioneer
Saw him playing with Alva Noto years ago and it was magical. One of the greats.
Really very sad news, one of my absolute favourite musicians
Terrible news. A genius.
Such sad news - one of the very best.
Oh that’s really sad, I had just started digging into his stuff as well
Really sad news. Only really started listening to him a few years ago.
what a guy. will never get over how good this song is
and of course
Only really discovered him through the Mogwai song “Ritchie Sacramento”, but that album he released this year is gorgeous
An all time classic artist, the likes of which the scene has not even felt the full reverberations from.
Thousand Knives is such a great song! one of the coolest album covers too!
Aahh shit. Masterful artist, RIP.
Irreplaceable, man was a genius. His music has always been there to help me through life, usually as an inspiration to take chances creatively as he did in every project he worked on.
Was this at Barbican? If so, I was there. I felt weirdly starstruck when he appeared onstage.
I feel really sad about this. He’ll leave a huge void in his passing.
