FROM: Net-Story of Early June Jeff Buckley Death
DATE: Mon Oct 13 11:03:53 PDT 1997
Jeff Buckley's Body Found 4 June 97 Missing since May 30, Jeff's Buckley's body was discovered in the Mississippi River, Wednesday night on June 4. Jeff Buckley had been in Memphis preparing to record a new album this month when he and friend, Keith Foti, went to a marina. At 9:00 p.m. According to Foti's account: Buckley went for a swim while Foti remained on shore. Buckley entered the water fully clothed and swam for about 15 minutes. Foti turned away to deal with a radio and when he turned back around, Buckley was gone. He called for his friend for about 10 minutes then called police. According to Buckley's record company, Columbia, Memphis authorities believe that an undertow caused by passing boats swept Buckley away. They also believe that neither drugs nor alcohol played a part in the tragedy. Police reported to television station WMC that a passenger on the American Queen river boat spotted the body at the foot of the city's famous Beale Street. The body was said to have a pierced navel, similar to Buckley's, and was in clothing similar to the ones Buckley was described as wearing when he disappeared. The 30 year old performer was the son of the late folk singer/songwriter Tim Buckley who died of a drug overdose in 1975 at the age of 28. Not living his life in his father's shadow, following his high school years in New York, Buckley traveled to Los Angeles to work on his music. He experimented with jazz and funk styles and joined a reggae band named Shinehead. He returned to New York and performed with his own band before going solo. He eventually signed-on with Columbia. His music was distinct and innovative, fusing his inherited folk roots with jazz and alternative rock sounds as well as classical. Tuesday, before Buckley's body was discovered, his mother Mary Gulbert had issued a statement saying, "It has become apparent to me that my son will not be walking out of the river. It is now time to make plans to celebrate a life that was golden. I ask people who cared about Jeff to be honorable and faithful to his memory, to send their best wishes to Jeff and all of us who are mourning his passing." A memorial service for Buckley is being planned.

Oh, and they are all favorite. Most shows, CW lays out absurd amounts of money on merchandise. There was the Pumpkin at Neitsche's, the Cone at Milestone's. The Boogie Bar show didn't have merchandise, as I remember - though I could be wrong. CW wasn't with me at that London Egyptians show I saw, but I'm sure he would have found something cool and significant to buy. BUt as to which is better? No way, depends on the mood I'm in. Solo is more for a quiet evening, a date perhaps. The Egyptians - well I don't know - only see them once. My strongest imression right now is when I heard de Chirico Street for the first time at a show last year. I immediately loved it - usually I have to listen a couple times and figure out what's going on.

Good question, Sleepy. I think the Egyptians really rocked in concert. I was at an 87 show at a college in London and had the fortune of being 3 feet from Robyn. I was entirely overwhlmed at the time with the fact that it was trio laying down so much sound, texture, and sheer volume. No funny stories either. Robyn shows are much different than my memory of that one. Lately he seems much more reserved in some ways. But more like he is slowing down a bit to really get things accross. By the way, CW is still on vacation; sorry you are lonely.

what wonderful timing, betty. i was busy this weekend doing anything but dealing with the "pumpkin question". i have failed miserably, though i may redeem myself with a midweek pumpkin excursion. this weekend was one to remember, as it may be a long time until the next relative heat wave. i had the top down and robyn, elastica, and an old echo & the bunnymen album blared forth! (now if i could only get that antifreeze to quit gurgling up at the end of a ride!) i'm still undecided about a roadtrip to NYC for a drake tribute, but if the event isn't sold out or filled up, it's sounds damn attractive. as we grow closer to the event, any other takers on this one? i'm sure decoy and mr wax salivate at the thought (...hopefully not in unison). heh heh. and PLEASE, good citizens, no name switching unless absolutely necessary! (squelchy is exempt from this request, of course). [Editor's note: Myk requests name consistency because he is too dim to detect prose patterns which can denote a post's origin.

Today as Franshor ..I mean Butterworth was on a pumkin at 110 degrees he sensed that it was just another day.Then, wondereing if Mr SeaBird had taken the flower bouquet. It was a large oval and "nicely" crafted overhang that reminded people of Captain Hangstrom. "Odd" he said" maps don't get wet if kept away from toilets".Anyway he got covered in it.Franshor or was it Butterworth?..any I cant remember..

J Cope has been mentioned here - very good site at I'm lukewarm on JC's music these days, but speaking of cool books, it looks like his long-in-the-works "The Modern Antiquarian" will see the light of day soon. This is an extensive guide to monoliths in the U.K. No comprehensive book of the sort now exists. Now, back to regular Robyn programming. . . ("I gotta split" - see y'all later!)

Hey! Who sez RH is the newest member of the Dalai Lama fan club?! Any of you familiar with Jungian concepts of the Shadow? Without getting overtly philosophical, RH definitely owns up to the human darkside in his music. A lot of what people mistake for quaint English quirkiness, obsessiveness with Barrett, and an overwhelming preoccupation with sea creatures is merely the swampy unconsciousness coming to the fore. So sayeth me, the non-Ph.D.

cool news on the future books and albums. thanks to the respective contributors! (don henley has a message board? love him or hate him, i'm not sure there's that much to say about him. well, maybe he would beg to differ on that.... ) any other cool websites worth mentioning, west l.a.? do share if you get the time and the inclination. as for fave record cover, "globe" is truly a classic. my favorite aspect of the painting is that cool flying fish with the RAF circles painted on the side. kinda funny.

I was just on Shambhala's site (I sometimes check out the Ken Wilber forum - you think WE get tangental - HA!), and checked out their new book releases. (For those of you who don't know, Shambhala is a well-respected, wonderful publisher of spiritual and psychological books.) Surprise, surprise! Robyn is featured in a new release by Dimitri Ehrlich entitled "Inside The Music - Profile on Conversations With Contemporary Musicians about Spirituality, Creativity and Consciousness". It will be released in mid-November, "focusing on lives and work of several prominent singers and songwriters from a wide range of styles". It lists at $15.00. If you want to check out the Shambhala releases site, it 's Looking forward to this! Also will be interesting to read on Al Green, Iggy Pop(!) and the late, great Jeff Buckley.

I AM in West L.A., actually. Just moved here. Gotta find a shorter alias, tho....A-HEM, umm, er: "My First Robyn Hitchc--k Gig", by ...West L.A.: It was my second (and by far best) trip to the U.K. (Started off by meeting J Cope on a train on his way back to Tamworth from his comeback gig on Wogan) . . . Back in the States, constantly played an RH compilation tape made by a friend - in Liverpool, found out RH was playing in Manchester. Left friend in Liverpool, took train to go check out The Man. Can you imagine, hearing "Uncorrected Personality Traits" for the first time LIVE? I was alternating between awe at the ability of these three guys to go at such a thing with such skill, and hilarity (is dat the right woid?) at the lyrical content. An incredible experience. A few of us spoke with him from the stage after, he encouraged us to come back and look at his paintings. No, I didn't - but I bought everything I could find of his the next day in the Manchester Underground. THE END. .......UGH, I bet this is going to be a long posting - I'll try not to be such a space hog. But I want to hear some of your stories, folks.

Eno is like J Cope in that Robyn seems to simply appreciate them. They are different from each other but Eno would be more apt to offer "methods" (OBLIQUE STRATEGIES) than Robyn, and same with Julian: he's pursuing spiritual matters and singing explicitely about his experiences; Robyn would never do that. See guys, I've compared and contrasted Eno, Robyn and Cope and haven't offended myself. Must be doing something right. Without apeing my opin's, do what I do, not what I say.......

Myk's comments appeared during my post composing and I realized I have to spell it out: I am not saying we shouldn't stray; I am not saying we should follow some kind of "rules" for proper posting; I am simply saying you guys are very often, in your rambling chats about non-Robynims, bringing nothing to the table that I find interesting; what I am saying is have some critical judgement and let's get back to discussing the issues. If you have nothing Robyn-relatable, read and move on; I don't want to here your poor impressions of python characters and your opinions about the state of the is too narrow of a context.

WOIWLA: Thanks and welcome. I am simply disappointed that the regulars (myself accepted, of course, and so humbly so). I fully agree that it isn't so awful to have the straying conversations. I suppost what's been bugging me since last week was the fact that nothing moves here. After a few weeks, you will have seen that there is a context established which is not Robyny, but Chewie and Myky and Sleepy and Dopey and Doc's chummy yuks: My problem, and I do have one (heh heh), is that the context isn't based on Robyn's music and relateds, but on chatty chummy gumpy stuff that may be charming for a few days but after that, it's like closing the door on a grandfather clock and opening it weeks later only to find that the works are swining just like they were before: nothing's changed.

voltaic should know that, deep down in his heart, the woman out in west LA (cool ref) and decoy are correct. simply put: if there was such thing as a robyn Conference being held somewhere, and if i were to be in attendance, would i wish to discuss SOLELY issues DIRECTLY related to robyn? no. rather, i would wish to get to know the persons with whom i share a common interest. this is simply a fan board, and it is not CNN. no news is being deleted because i mention a film or sleepy makes a reference to a non-RH gig or his lunch. this place is electronic in nature, so our correspondence kills no trees. current info on robyn can be found at the Fegmaniax site, primarily. Woj runs a fine website, and i highly recommend it. we are simply commentary and context, but we aren't likely to share anything of interest unless we are familiar with each other, right? in summation: yes, robyn news and useful insights are very important to this website, but since there isn't much news to share, we will often discuss other aspects to our lives. i won't apologize for this.

I've enjoyed this site for a few weeks now. . . I knew something would incite me to come charging out of the shadows--Voltaic, please feel free to bring any stray conversation back to RH territory if you feel like it. I'm sure everyone will join in. Otherwise, I don't think it's so awful that sometimes everyone's just...hanging out. I've also checked out an archive or two and, sure enough, when Robyn is releasing material or is on the road, the posts aren't so tangental. It certainly will be interesting to see what 'Storefront' does for RH's popularity. Sometime posted here to the effect that they hoped Robyn wouldn't become TOO popular, that he'd remain the hidden gem in the popmine. I don't agree. Perhaps I'm spoilt because I've enjoyed many years of great RH gigs in small(est!) venues - I certainly don't relish the idea of Robyn in the mega-halls, but I think the man is way overdue for success. He deserves a little easy livin' for all the indescribably wonderful music he's given us.

And really, who doesn't crave an audience. I seem to recall a similar disgussion [sic] many archives ago; something about artistry and publishiing and access to an audience. Not all artists create because they feel the cultural obligation to the legacy of mankind (which is vapor in a mere 5 billion years anyway); or even that they have to, like some kind of twisted serial killer psycho in a movie. MOST artists are trying to make a buck or a pound with the deal god or the entropy of the universe gave them. Some think of it as a romantic curse. s--t, what did they call it before Wordsworth and Blake and all them? People probably just called them "loosers." I think the previous point was made that, in it's way, this board is a little collective canvas. Some of us think it is quite good, as well. Some pidgeon-hole happy persepctive of the world might say that this board is for Robyn talk only, but that's rather narrow and slow moving. COntexts are what it is all about, anyway. The seasons change, the Bills win, the Mets don't make the playoffs, itRobyn talk only, but that's rather narrow and slow moving. COntexts are what it is all about, anyway. The seasons change, the Bills win, the Mets don't make the playoffs, it actually has an effect on the music I listen to - even if no one wants to hear it. Lacking that, the commentary is dry and sterile, without form. So, that is a long way of explaining very little, but I wanted to conclude that the act of questionsing the form is a form of itself in the sense that good has evil, checks have balances (whatever) and there will always be critics. So thank you, Voltaic, you are my Muse. Was Brian Eno paid for his appearence at RH's school? Did Robyn pay attention, not much seemed to rub off musically speaking?

Most of the last archive and everything so far on this page is proof enough that I should perhaps just stay away altogether. I don't feel like offering any topic or asking a question because the only thing discussed is so much like overhearing a completely inane commuter train conversation. I like the weather reports and such, but beyond that, maybe you should simply trade email addresses...or do you want an audience here to "overhear" your indepth discussions of Mr. Bean and the width and depth of currently wired america..... What's this have to do with Robyn? And from all accounts offered by Antwoman, the answer is that no, Robyn doesn't come here (although Rosin Bags' style sounds suspicioulsy familiar and is grammatically consistent enough to perhaps be an artist of Robyn's caliber)... and I've actually thought about this: I am glad someone like Robyn is not wired. It isn't "him." There needs to be a more organic development (like WS Burroughs' taling a--hole/typewriter) in the mix for it to plug Robyn in, no? Meanwhile, how could I mention, for instance, that Eno mentioned Robyn in his diary, and that their meeting has also been mentioned by Robyn (at this site)...two points of view on the same meeting. You see, years before their official meeting, Robyn saw Eno do some kind of performance at RH's school when he was just a schoolboy. Eno references the second meeting, years later, but can't recall the school performance. Me thinks Mr. Random is me, too, by the looks of this post. . . . . .
