Over the past year, Chicago has started to become accustomed to hosting large scale multi-day/multi-band industrial music festivals; unfortunately this special event is a lot more somber.
On June 21st of this past year, Jamie Duffy passed away in the early morning hours, leaving behind a legacy much greater than his known contributions to the industrial and metal genres. Even if you didn’t know Jamie Duffy, odds are that you still KNEW of Jamie Duffy and his work as he served as stage manager or as the soundman at many of your favorite Chicago venues such as the House of Blues, Cubby Bear, and Cabaret Metro amongst many others. He appeared on, mixed, produced, engineered, remixed or just plain influenced many of your favorite bands such as Chicago’s very own Ministry, Sister Machine Gun, Chris Connelly, Sister Soleil, Method Man and more.
In addition to being a sound engineer and producer, Jamie was also well known across Industrial Music’s landscape for his contributions as a member of the Coldwave/Metal hybrid band, Acumen Nation, and the Drum and Bass project, DJ?
