Two pieces of music news I heard about just today

The first regards a legend (amongst a certain genre)

33 cassette tapes were released, all accounted for, and the band don't want them released in another form.

Then, against all odds or expectations, it gets leaked... and apparently it's official.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor - All Lights Fucked on the Hairy Amp Drooling

The second is the sad death of another legend, Klaus Schulz.

Timewind is probably his "classic" album

I heard his collaborations with Pete Namlook and Bill Laswell, The Dark Side of the Moog, and scoured soulseek for them - gotta get 'em all!.

This was during the nascent and formative time in my exploration of electronic music, which I think directed me away from the more commercial or mainstream side. I really liked the humour and seeming lack of ego or self-absorption they displayed.
