ITT: Artists with sad/interesting backgrounds
whats Goldie's background?
also here's my contribution
For one, his alcoholic, mentally-unstable mother left him and his family when he was 1. Very interesting childhood
Goldie's had a pretty interesting life
>Get through a fucked up childhood and become a graffiti artist
>Releasing a massively influential debut album and receiving critical acclaim
>Founding an important record label and pioneering jungle
>Appearing in Snatch and a Bond film as well as fucking Eastenders, Strictly and Big Brother
>Still being respected and putting on great shows to this day
>Porking Bjork in her prime
His son got life in prison recently too.
>be Zev Love X
>in group called "KMD"
>little brother also in group as producer
>release first album
>about the release second album
>little brother gets hit by a car
>label drops your group
>second album doesn't get released due to cover art
>be nearly homeless for 3 years
>start to hate world
>return as MF DOOM
He seemed so much happier as Zev Love X.
Another member of the Asshole Dad club
Crazy mexican stalker fan got so butthurt because he hated Bjork "racemixing" with Goldie and his own gyno and being a beta bitch, sent her letter bombs, filmed a 20+ hour long video where he shaved his head, painted his face and ranted and then shot himself. Basically changed Bjork from cheery, cute pop debutante to her darker, more experimental works starting with Homogenic
>grew up in a cult
>serious thoughts about suicide during the Dead Deer recordings
>has suffered from clinical depression for years
>yfw DOOM's supervillain origin that fuels his persona is actually real
I was half joking but supposedly she ran away from home in her early teens to live in a squat community of punks, then she became the vocalist of an allgirl crust punk band where she was discovered by Ethan Kath, who recruited her for Crystal Castles at 15, after which she just kept touring for years after their rapid success. She has also said she just listened to the same Darkthrone album for years while living a life of drug abuse
Rumor has it she has been abused since she was a child, and also by her bandmate
No shit. His "suffer trauma and disappear back home and then mysteriously reemerge as a villain seeking revenge behind a cold steel mask" thing is an exact mirror of Dr. Doom's story. That's why he chose the name
The song Tell Me What to Swallow which she recorded in her teens hints of her father's sexual abuse
Apparently it was Under a Funeral Moon
Speaking of Beach Boys, here's a recent status from one of Mike Love's many children (I believe she is his youngest)
what´s Tina got to do with this thread?
Hey what was the last words he said before he shot himself?
Something like "continue?"
Sauce confirmation from anyone?
Even though sad shit happened near his prime... fuck man, it's still kind of heartbreaking
Do you guys want his most recent album before he died?
I paid for it because I couldn't find it on SLSK and the archive. I just need to tag like 4 more tracks and then I can u/l it because they came completely untagged.
Love Lennon but if you think he had it hard go fuck yourself. My pops dipped and I barely knew my mom too. Unlike Lennon I'm not, well, John fucking Lennon. He had a great life and accomplished more then most musicians ever could. Who cares if he got depressed once in awhile.
Here it is:
