is one of the founding members of Negativland
. He was a cable repairman when he joined the group with a then-teenage Mark Hosler
and Richard Lyons
, until he retired in the '90s. David is also known as "The Weatherman." Due to him being a recluse
, it has been difficult for fans of Negativland and even the band themselves to contact him and in the past, he has shown up at Negativland concerts or Negativlandland on a TV screen. Starting in June of 2008 The Weatherman has been posting audio, video, pictures and more from his enormous archives on his section (Dumb) of the Negativland website.
