RIP Negativland’s Ian Allen

Late story, but still deserving the mention: avant-iconoclasts Negativland’s Ian Allen passed away from complications during a heart valve replacement surgery several days ago, with the band announcing it officially only last week. He was 56 years old.

The band wrote: “For those who knew him, he was a visionary, magical, impish, playful and eccentric thinker, a true genius who was light years ahead of all of us with his ideas about art, sound, society, and technology. He will be dearly missed.”
