Something about ^this one got to me for a while. So many mournful tributes, so little material to look back on (musically, and Cay also fell into the gap of never being big enough to be well documented, and faded away from the limelight before everything became internetted).
The very definition of unrealised potential.
Really got to me.
(thurston moore did a doc on her if anyone's not familiar)
oh wait sorry i got that completely wrong. she died in late 2009, only found out about it this year for some reason.
Surprised she is not further up this thread

Claims to be the first person to have rigged up and operated a dual turntable DJ system, so he counts.
Oh, hang on...
I'd rather they stuck around to be honest, awesome band
i liked mehdi
That was last year. Still a geezer.
and I never got to see 'em.
That really sucks :'(
(after releasing their best album)
not really a break up as such, anyway.
NiN might reactivate.
Reznor never said NiN would stop recording, but that touring was done.
2 weeks before playing the festival near my town, which had already sold out (and featured only shit bands besides NIN anyway).
I've never seen NIN live.
Very glad to hear news of NIN going back into the studio though.
Last Christmas Day. Missed out on most end of year obit lists, and is forgotten about by the following year.
As it is less than a year (just), I've added him here.
but I agree, he was forgotten due to it happening Christmas day.
What a gaylord!!! (its what he would've wanted).
...good fuckin riddance
absolute legend. one of the first jazz records i bought & really fell in love w/ when i was 14 or so was fuschia swing song.
really evocative, beautiful record.
kept progressing & experimenting way beyond some of his contemporaries
great innings but really sad to see him go.
