Andrew W.K. Continues To Unravel The Kafkaesque Mystery Of His Very Existence

    After the I Get Wet wave crested, a lot of artists would have seized the opportunity to blame everything on a team of corporate stooges. Not so Andrew W.K., who has taken to his website to claim every frat groove and pair of white jeans as his own. In a densely worded statement on his website, the singer (or someone purporting to be him) says that he is not involved in a conspiracy with someone named Steev Mike and that, even though “he worked with other people” at the beginning of his career, he is an actual musician. Hopefully it’s true, and Andrew W.K. isn’t some less successful version of the Monkees. Maybe he should admit to it anyway, though, and use it to explain where he’s been for the last five years. He’ll be answering that question, amongst others, in an appearance at Santos Party House in February. [The Daily Swarm]
