Sparklehorse’s Mark Linkous Takes Own Life -RIP

Posted in News on March 7, 2010 by dk

Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mark Linkous has committed suicide, his publicist confirms to Rolling Stone. Best known for his acclaimed work with Sparklehorse, who released four albums of imaginative ambient psych-folk, Linkous also produced Daniel Johnston’s 2003 album Fear Yourself and collaborated with Danger Mouse on Dark Night of the Soul. His exact age is unknown, but he was in his forties. “It is with great sadness that we share the news that our dear friend and family member, Mark Linkous, took his own life today,” reads a statement from his family. “We are thankful for his time with us and will hold him forever in our hearts. May his journey be peaceful, happy and free. There’s a heaven and there’s a star for you.”

Linkous’ dramatic, lush music often came from a place of pain. In 1996, Linkous actually died for two minutes after ingesting a dangerous mix of Valium and antidepressants while on tour in the U.K. behind Sparklehorse’s 1995 debut Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot. He recovered, but the incident left him crippled — he laid unconscious for 14 hours, cutting off circulation to his legs. He suffered a heart attack when medics attempted to straighten his legs, and underwent seven surgeries to save his damaged limbs. But after the incident, he recorded 1999’s Good Morning Spider, 2001’s It’s A Wonderful Life and 2006’s Dreamt for Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain. “For a while there, I was really scared that when I technically died — which I guess I did for a few minutes — that the part of my brain that allowed me my ability to write songs would be damaged,” he told Rolling Stone in 1999.

Linkous most recently teamed up with Danger Mouse and director David Lynch on Dark Night of the Soul, a multimedia project that was tied up in legal issues with EMI; just this past week, Danger Mouse and the label resolved their dispute and agreed to let the album come out as it was originally intended. The last time Linkous spoke with RS in July 2009, he explained how after he and Danger Mouse worked together on Dreamt For Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain, he brought the producer an instrumental track called “Revolution.” “I just couldn’t sing it,” Linkous told Rolling Stone, “and I thought that it should be an anti-war song, but I’m not that good at writing literal lyrics.” Gruff Rhys from Super Furry Animals added lyrics and vocals and the song, retitled “Just War,” kicks off Dark Night of the Soul. “That was the egg for the entire project,” Linkous said.

Linkous’ publicist confirms he was nearly finished with a new album that was due on Anti- Records.(Rollingstone)

Millie & Andrea :: COLONY 009 (Feb 2010) – live show, Dec 2009, Colony club night, London

Millie & Andrea :: COLONY 009 (Feb 2010)
live show, Dec 2009, Colony club night, London

COLONY is a small, friendly east London clubnight, put together to showcase the finest sounds in underground dance music, regardless of genre, popularity or hype.

The 9th installment in our ongoing voyage into dance music’s deepest nether regions sees Modern Love cross-dressers Millie & Andrea deliver a bass-heavy slice of everything good about British club music (no, not donk). Taken from their criminally large debut live show of December last year, COLONY_009 is a heady of concoction of dubstep, techno, hardcore, jungle and acid, packed to the brim with slurring hats, wafting subs and hauntilicious synths, and lubed with just enough Detroit goodness to keep the demons at bay. Crank it at your own risk…
