ANDREW W.K. BIO
1983, on highway I-94 in Detroit, Michigan (1983) a man named
Andrew Stevenson was pulled over for drunk driving. When police
stopped him and asked for his driver's license he said he
didn't have it on him, but that it was at his house, which
he was returning to. The police asked Stevenson to step out
of the car, a brand new Plymouth Acclaim, while they ran a
check on his license plate. When the car came back stolen
Andrew Stevenson was arrested. However, the events that unfolded
in the following 15 minutes, would result in one of the weirdest
musical personas of the new century.
had started to rob local gas stations and drug stores, usually
for small sums, which he used to pay for his increasing drug
problem. It was after he killed a teenage gas station attendant
that the real trouble started. He managed to escape... He
sent in a letter to the police three days later. The letter
started off reading as a confesion, but then turned into a
weird sort of taunt towards the Detroit Michigan police force.
It was then that Andrew Stevenson started using the alias,
Andrew White, and it was at this point that he also killed
two more people: his friends Todd Rivers and Sheila Arnold.
This was when the police knicknamed him Andrew "The White
Killer" Stevenson... or simply, "The White Killer".
father was fond of this name, and as a cheif officer on the
police force, he named his son after the killer, once they
caught him and executed him in 1987. Andrew W.K.. White Killer.
Women Kum. Wild Kid. Want Kicks. It's all the fucking same.
He fucking kills the music to make you dance.
Heartbeat Magazine Last and most unleast, Andrew W.K.,
he who will save music, to party, to kill. Seriously, this
five song (and hidden track) cd only hints at the amazing
life-saving times a head. From start to brutal, bone-crushing
finish, this is the music to live the best times of your life
by. I am not joking. Everyone should love this, and everyone
I played it for who didn't love it, I don't talk to anymore.
Now, Andrew has made something so brilliant and pure, it'll
be years before anyone comes close to understanding it...
Ok, let me just try to make sense of it all... These songs
are all anthems. The seemingly cryptic, but perfectly sensical
explanations of how it feels to be young and full of life,
maybe in love sometimes, too. Andrew W.K. proposes that they've
ruined everything. They've ruined our lives, so let's ruin
theirs. These songs will be in your head for weeks, if you're
lucky, for the rest of your life. Recommended and essential.
