Negativland Package Late Band Member’s Ashes With New Album

Bay Area experimental band Negativland has lost several of its members over the last two years. Former member Ian Allen died in January 2015, with Don Joyce following in July 2015 and Richard Lyons passing away in April of this past year. While Joyce may have moved on from this mortal coil, Negativland fans now have the chance to own a piece of him forever. Mail order copies of the band’s new album The Chopping Channel, out October 21, will come with two grams of Don Joyce’s cremated ashes.
