Tim Wright of Pere Ubu and DNA has died.
The bassist joined Pere Ubu in 1975, staying with the group for three years before he relocated to New York. He joined DNA – formed by Arto Lindsay and Robin Crutchfield – shortly afterwards. Four DNA tracks (‘Egomaniac’s Kiss’, ‘Lionel’, ‘Not Moving’ and ‘Size’) featured on Brian Eno’s 1978 compilation No New York.
According to a statement on the Facebook page of his Pere Ubu bandmate David Thomas: “Tim Wright died Sunday, August 4, 2013, reports longtime partner Mary Ann Livchak. He was an original member of Pere Ubu and later a contributor to the No Wave scene of New York City.”
