***So, for the record as I bigged the guy up for years...
He's been dropped like a white-hot anvil by the labels he worked with and outed as a misogynist, anti-Semitic sociopathic bully. Twitter has seen him pretty much destroyed in the past 72 hours. I'm heartbroken, but not entirely surprised given his online behaviour over the past few months. The guy clearly has major issues.
His music remains some of the most incredible drone and ambient I've ever heard. My question now, is can I reconcile that with what I've since learned about him.
Been getting into his work for some time now, especially his 'A Young Person's Guide To..' double album. Not surprisingly for me, this is one for fans of drone, neo-classical etc, so all you Lid fans should find this right up your boulevard.
New album out, at the frankly obscenely cheap price of £6 on vinyl plus P&P. Limited run though so get in early.
