We were saddened by the tragic news of Mark Fisher’s death this weekend. Everyone at Ghost Box owes a huge debt to Mark’s support and inspirational writing. When we first began he was instrumental in bringing our label to the attention of a wider audience through his k-punk blog. He always had a clear understanding of what we are about and was able to articulate it better than us or anyone else. Amongst other things it was Mark that introduced us to John Foxx.
A great thinker and an important cultural voice that has been tragically silenced at a time when such remarkable minds are needed more than ever. Our thoughts are with his family.
Mark’s new book The Weird and The Eerie was published in December by Repeater Books.
There’s a memorial fund here in aid of Mark’s family.
