Andrew WK Does Not Need A Wake-Up Call

Aug 28th, 2007 // 8 Comments


So after a lengthy delay, the third album by white T-shirt-wearer/motivational speaker/artist whose show in Philadelphia a few years back resulted in my only bone-dislocation ever Andrew WK is out in the States today, and what with today being maybe the second-slowest-news-day of my entire tenure writing this site, I figured passing along this info would at least brighten the day of one member of the Idolator faithful, if not more. Also, relistening to “Not Going To Bed” is seriously making me rethink my priorities, since there have been multiple occasions this week alone when I have, in fact, fallen asleep watching cable. Maybe that means it’s time for me to go out there, seize the day, and dislocate my other shoulder!

    This news makes me so happy, however, I’m still waiting on the phone call I was promised for purchasing “The Wolf”.

  2. Bazooka Tooth

    Aesop Rock’s new record comes out today- surely you could find a post in that?

    He will rock you and rock you. And just when you thnk you’ve rocked all you can, he will rock you some more. AND I DON’T MEAN ROCK YOU TO SLEEP, MAURA!

  4. Dan Gibson

    @Aquemini: No, because the Aesop Rock disc is for NERDS.

    @DanGibson: Hell, I like None Shall Pass all right but at the expense of WK? Pffft. The fact that “Pushing Drugs” hasn’t taken over rock radio is a damn shame.

  6. Maura Johnston

    @chezme: oh my.

  7. Dead Air ummm Dead Air

    That man is a Saint. I still have the voice mail message he left on my phone four years ago, despite being a professional who should probably have a bland “You’ve reached the voice mail box of…” and my name not being Andrew, thus causing much confusion when people intially call me.

    Oh well. This is joyous news.

    This album’s actually pretty disappointing, although “I Want To See You Go Wild” is pretty good.

    And one must never forget Slam! John! Against a brick wall!
