  • RIP SUSUMU YOKOTA

    Apparently he passed away in March but the news has only just been released by his family.

    Tragic loss, I latched on to his recordings around 2000 when he was working with Leaf Records. Genuinely some of my favourite 'ambient' (or low key maybe) music. Everyone should have a copy of 'Grinning Cat' imho. Amazing musician.

    RIP,
    Latest release: never to be repeated

      I know how that feels. I'm just old enough that I've lost a few of my favorite musicians now, and it leaves a great emptiness where they used to be. Just recently, Chris Squire, founding member and bassist of Yes passed away, one of my all-time favorite Prog Rock bands, so I'm right there with you.

      Be well.

        Oh i'm fine, there's the loss you feel for those close to you and this kind of 'regret' if that makes sense for those you don't really know, almost an abstract grief.

        But, yeah, Chris Squire, that was a shock too. In my proggy teenage years he was second only to Geddy Lee in my estimation. I think its that cutting Rickenbacker bass sound they shared.

          That Rickenbacker sound was unique, and Squire and Lee really made the most of it. I wish I could justify buying one.
