Mark Bell Dies: LFO Musician Had Surgery Complications, Label Says

By    |   Monday, 13 Oct 2014 04:49 PM

Mark Bell, of the pioneering British techno group LFO, died last week as a result of complications from an operation, according to Warp Records.

Bell, along with Gez Varley, founded LFO and released three albums from 1991 to 2003, all with Warp Records. The group’s top singles were "LFO," "We Are Back," and "What Is House."

Varley left the group in 1996, and Bell carried on alone.

Warp put a notice of Bell’s death on its website: “It's with great sadness that we announce the untimely passing of Mark Bell of LFO who died last week from complications after an operation. Mark's family & friends request privacy at this difficult time.”

Bell was well-known for his production work on Bjork’s "Homogenic" and Depeche Mode’s "Exciter."

The musical artist’s fans went online to honor him, many paying homage to the techno, bass-heavy sounds he introduced.





In an interview on Snarl.org, done just before LFO’s second album came out, Bell talked about his music. “There's a lot of rubbish out at present. ... Everybody uses that same noise that sounds like someone falling down the stairs with a drumkit, and they tend to all have the same feelings in them,” he said. “Forget what instruments you use and work out what feeling you are creating — sad, or happy, or dancing.”
