In Memoriam

(5 out of 5 stars)

"We old folks grew up on what what was to become the techno scene,
as it were. In the late 70's and early 80's, Cowley and Sylvester were about all that kept us going. Innovative. Inspired. That was the end of some of the greatest. Cowley passed in November of 1982 of Caposi Sarcoma. I have the article laminated in one of my scrapbooks. And then Sylvester. Damn! I was collecting then the works of both, even the remixes, like Donna Summer's I FEEL LOVE, and Tommy Williams' remixes...........on vinyl, no less. Still have them. My point is:
I'm on the Board of Directors for the Living Aids Memorial Garden in Charleston, WV. We just completed a brick walkway through the entire garden. It's a place of reflection and remembrance of those who've passed because of AIDS, their survivors, and those who are living with AIDS. Each brick will be professionally engraved with the names of whom one wishes to remember. I intend to have Patrick Cowley's and Sylvester's names engraved into two of them. We do the ribbon-cutting dedication ceremony on December 1st, to celebrate the installation of the walkway, in conjunction with World AIDS Day. Blessed Be!
The third frontier

"An unforgettable artist and his music. Patrick Cowley represented in the late 70s the third border of the electronic music. He had not the mysticism of the German bands nor the sense of innovation - or "breaking all the rules attitude" - typical from UK; but in his simplicity he was able to transmit positive energy and fun to the people. Also now is a pleasure to put one of his tracks on the turntables (Do U wanna funk, a mythical collaboration with Tony Sylvester) and see people dancing. A further clue of his importance for us DJ is that many samples of his songs have been used by many DJs revamping the UK techno scene. A basic for who followed him since the beginning, a pleasant discovery for the young dance lovers."
The music lives on

"Patrick Cowley was a true pioneer in the music business. His use of electronic sounds and digital beats, created a worm hole into today's techno scene. His work is truely the dna of what are the fruits of today's artists. A sidebar... When I stop and think of all the talent snuffed out by AIDS, I wonder why more isn't done to end this plague. Buy this album, and if you like it, try some Sylvester as well. -peace!"
