Morreu James Woolley, ex-teclista dos Nine Inch Nails

Woolley perdeu a vida no último fim de semana. Anúncio foi feito pela ex-mulher no Facebook, mas ainda não são conhecidas as causas da morte.

O ex-teclista do grupo de rock industrial Nine Inch Nails (NIN), James Woolley, morreu no último fim de semana. O anúncio foi feito pela ex-mulher, no Facebook.

Kate Van Buren, ex-mulher do músico, escreveu um post onde deu a conhecer a história de ambos e, no fim, informou que James Woodley tinha morrido, porque "gostava que os amigos soubessem para incluir nas orações, Brendan, Mary e Anne", os filhos do músico.

De acordo com a The Rolling Stone, as causas da morte do músico são, para já, desconhecidas.

Woolley fez parte da banda de rock industrial Die Warzau e, em 1997, juntou-se aos Nine Inch Nails, para ocupar o lugar de Lee Mars.

Com os NIN, participou no festival Lollapalooza, no Brasil, e deu som ao teclado na "Self Destruct Tour" (1994-1996), uma digressão de apoio ao segundo álbum da banda de rock, "The Downward Spiral" (1994).

James Woodly não teve lugar nos créditos, em nenhum dos trabalhos, mas pode ser visto nos vídeos de "Wish" (2002) e de “March of the Pigs” (1994).

READING FESTIVAL 2016 - 1990

Thursday 25th to Sunday 28th August 2016. I went in 1990 - what difference the bands ... I think for worse . If we compare the 80 and 90 .... I was lucky. Reading and Leeds festival may be three days long, but the organisers have somehow managed to pack in five headliners. The Reading Festival is the complementary event to the Leeds Festival. Both are held on the same August summertime weekend, with the Reading event taking place at Little John’s Farm in central Reading. The Reading Festival is not only the oldest of this pair, but is also considered to be the oldest popular music festival in history – this doesn’t mean that you’ll be amongst the fogies here, as the vibe here is most definitely an eclectic one full of friends old and new alike. You’re likely to see some of the biggest acts in the world playing at the Reading Festival, as this is one party that has the power to pull in the gods of any genre. It usually features mainstream music with more of an emphasis on bands than DJs playing Dance beats and breaks. There is just about everything and anything you could want at the Reading Festival. Camp for the whole weekend and visit the numerous stalls and eating spots – you can bring your under 13 years olds for free if you’ve got an adult ticket, making this a fairly family friendly event. If you’re blessed with looking younger than your age, over-18s can acquire a special wristband that offers proof of age that can be carried round instead of photo ID for the bars.

RICHARD LYONS - CANCER IS STUPID

Richard Lyons with the 1968 Estus Pirkle LP "If Footmen Tire You What Will Horses Do?," which he purchased at the Pleasant Hill Salvation Army in 1982. Samples from this became the 1987 Negativland track "Christianity Is Stupid," with a video version by Negativland made in 2004.

On their Facebook page, Negativland posted a warm, richly detailed eulogy about Lyons titled CANCER IS STUPID (a twist on the group's "Christianity Is Stupid" track).

 Why? I’ve got several dozens of records like this. So many, in fact, that they’ve grown to have their own section of my collection. I’m just about ready to split that section into a section of what’s going to happen when the communists take over records. Why is this one so special? Never mind that it’s currently going for a pretty penny on record auction sites. It’s the reason it is that makes it so special. It’s not only record that spawned the equally batshit crazy Ron Ormand film of the same name (go Google it. We’ll wait.).

 It’s also the record from which Negativland sampled from to create the classic track from their best-selling LP Escape From Noise, Christianity Is Stupid, immortalizing Rev. Pirkle forever. In it, Pirkle can be heard entoning ‘Christianity is stupid! Communism is good! Give up!’ over and over, backed by a martial industrial, metallic beat. It got a lot of airplay on college radio. Maybe it’s the first thing you heard by them. It’s probably the closest the band’s ever had to a hit record until the U2/Casey Kasem debacle. I know I put it on a lot of mix tapes for friends for many years in the 80s.

Earlier in the day, Richard had a lively birthday party at his skilled nursing facility, where he was receiving palliative care. Present were current and founding members of Negativland, satellite Negativland members and friends, as well as other current and former members of the group appearing simultaneously on various speaker phones and digital devices. With photos being taken of people taking photos of phones, phone speakers going right and left (with a dog barking on one of them), and some new age harp being played, the afternoon felt like an Actual Negativland Performance for the ages. David “The Weatherman” Wills led the group in singing the now-public-domain “Happy Birthday" (see below for link).

Richard’s mother Evelyn called in a bit later, and her voice was the last he heard before dying. An on duty nurse commented that "I hope when I go that my last day is as good as his was." Known for his role in finding the Estus W. Pirkle LP sampled in Negativland's 1987 "Christianity Is Stupid" track (and, in turn, originating the idea of Negativland’s ax murder hoax), and for taking the wrecking yard photos that inspired the 2002 Negativland project "Deathsentences of the Polished and Structurally Weak," he was also known for such darkly funny and contrarian alter egos as his has-been radio personality Dick Vaughn, righteous religious preacher Pastor Dick, ace used car salesmen Dick Goodbody, master debater Dick Bush, good Christian lady Marsha Turnblatt and crazed DJ Jack Diekobisc (pronounced Dickobitch). His “actions” on our Over the Edge radio show became the stuff of legend, crafting such memorable events as the 1982 “format change” to an all-1970s-nostalgia station (documented on our “Dick Vaughn’s Moribund Music of the ‘70s” release) and a disastrous “live broadcast” from a Walnut Creek bowling alley on Thanksgiving, 2001 (soon to be released on CD as “Ultimate Pinsmack”).

His last weeks at the skilled nursing facility were spent with many visits and calls from friends, lots of Boston Cream Pies, watching 70s car commercials and old episodes of Match Game, being interviewed for a documentary film currently being made about the group (everyone there that day gathered 'round his bed to sing his "Nesbitt's Lime Soda Song" to him), and working on new hand made covers for an upcoming re-issue of Negativland's first LP from 1980. He kept an online station tuned to an all-70s-hits-all-the-time station, and when he finally was unable to speak, he was still tapping his fingers to the music.

RICHARD LYONS +MARK HOSLER+ DAVID WILLS

Formed in the San Francisco area, Negativland originally revolved around the talents of Mark Hosler and Richard Lyons, (aka Pastor Dick) multi-instrumentalists with an ear for tape manipulation of all sorts.

Their inspired stroke of genius was to recruit David Wills, more famously known as the Weatherman in later years, to make up the original trio.
Wills, a cable TV repairman by trade, was just as obsessed with home recording and experimentation as the other two, and his wry, drawling vocals became the core trademark for many of Negativland’s most notorious releases.

 Working with a few guests such as Peter Daytonon guitar, the trio released its debut self-titled release in 1980, notable as much for its packaging (each album featured individually wallpapered covers) as for its fragmented songs and textures. Apparently, the still-teenage Hosler wanted it completed in part so he could feel he had accomplished something by the time he graduated from high school, a reasonable enough goal.

Released in 1981, Points featured the same general lineup, with a new notable guest performer being Ian Allen, credited with tape processing on one track. However, an even more important bond was made that year — the recruitment of Don Joyce.

Joyce had started a free-form radio show, Over the Edge, on the Bay Area’s KPFA station that also explored fried humor and social commentary much like Negativland itself. As a result, Hosler and company appeared one day on the show shortly after it began, and since then Joyce has not only been the only constant member of Negativland aside from Hosler, but Over the Edge has become the regular sonic testing ground for most of the band’s releases, still running strong after 20 years.
