I haven't read any reviews of him on Pitchfork but I think it was Kurt Cobain name dropping him in the early 90s that helped get him some attention. His real identity is hardly any secret anymore, he may not even have that much longer to live.
The song "I'm Ready" is legitimately beautiful and he has a few others I've liked as well. The thought of sitting all the way through one of his 29 minute bass-only songs or something like that, though, is pretty daunting.
