He may not be a familiar name to many but he's been part of an influential music scene (pretty sure Rev listens to Rachel's).  He passed away on the 4th.

Louisville musician Jason Noble died this morning at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md., where he was a patient in a clinical trial for a new cancer treatment. Noble was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma in 2009. He was 40.

Noble was a versatile indie music icon, best known for his work in the Nineties avant-garde, post-hardcore band Rodan, classical-inspired Rachel's and Shipping News, a band that grew out of his composition work for This American Life. Noble's music was featured in many films and television shows, including "Friday Night Lights" and "Any Given Sunday." He was a long-time employee of ear X-Tacy and wrote a column on music and art for LEO.

Plans for a public memorial gathering will be announced when finalized.

Never really met the guy but I'm pretty sure he rung me up for some purchases at Ear X-tacy in the past.  Sad to see him go, but he's left a fine legacy.

I do listen to Rachel's. Saddened to hear this, especially since he was only 40. R.I.P.

damn, that's sad, RIP. I actually have Rusty on vinyl somewhere. I was really into the louisville post rock scene back in the 90s

HALF COCKED stars Noble plus his band mates in Rodan. interesting underground flick (it was actually my first choice in the 'Films you Bet No One Here Has Seen' thread on the BM board)
