I liked them back in the day. Saw them in concert in Osaka. After the show a fan tried to give the lead singer a PSP which was still new at the time. He politely declined the gift.

I was horrified to find out DFA were pals with Gavin Macinnes (same for Buzz Osborne, although that was less surprising)

Yikes. I vaguely remembered they were connected to something stupid. I guess it's just as well that they haven't been relevant since 2005.

What??? That’s incredibly sad, she was truly one of the most talented electronic musicians of our generation.
This is one of my favorites, at least from her album/the less ‘clubby’ tunes https://youtu.be/q0rqR06E1WU

She also just released a really good single like two days ago as well as the Autechre remix of Bipp a couple of weeks ago, both on Numbers. RIP

Re: DFA white supremacist poo poo:

[Keeler] said he’d become acquainted with McInes around 2003, as DFA released early records on Vice’s label, and maintained a casual friendship up until last year. “Soon after the election, I began noticing that Gavin was promoting violence and a form of radical politics that I absolutely do not agree with. I have always been anti-war and anti-violence.”

Keeler then talked about his mixed race heritage, and said he was raised by “my immigrant Indian family who struggled to make it in a new country.” “The reality is that I am not ‘Alt-Right,’ nor a White Supremacist. The facts are I am a mixed race father of two and a musician. I am so sorry for putting my family, friends and fans in this position. I never wanted to talk about politics, I just wanted to make music and leave that stuff alone. Unfortunately, my actions have brought me here, and I am deeply heartbroken about it. To a fault it seems that I give people the benefit of the doubt, and I hope that you will give me the same in return.”


The author of the original article even said:

“It’s an earnest and humble statement and I believe him. Kudos on responding in a timely manner. When the leader of The Proud Boys claim you as one of their own, you probably should denounce that poo poo. I, as the author of this piece, do not think Jesse Keeler is a Proud Boy or alt-right. He just seems like a giant dummy and hung out with some sketchy people.”

This isn't like when The Orwells destructed because the dude was a rapist (gently caress that guy). They were acquainted with this nazi poo poo stain before he was obviously a nazi poo poo stain and renounced him when someone called attention to their association.

Pardon me for thinking a couple of musicians might just write surface deep lyrics sometimes and not be trying to subvert progress in the name of white supremacy.

They’re a couple of immature sex-obsessed contrarians. It goes along with their love for whiny punk music.

I feel safe in my “I really like their music” stance and feel like the other poo poo has been cleared up (white supremacy ties) or wasn’t that important in the first place (problematic lyrical content).

People getting mad at Bridgers for smashing up a cheap guitar is the dumbest thing in the world, and I hope every one of them gets hemorrhoids.

The funny bit is that she talked to Danelectro about it beforehand.

Hell yeah they were. I suggest checking out The Circulatory System, same band but with just one of the singers and songwriters.

They had a reunion album planned but the other singer/songwriter died and the remaining guy has multiple scoliosis.
