Pretty much. At the party last night, my friends Kimmi and especially Tammy voiced concerted annoyance and outrage at his mere existence, wondering why in the world he does what he does as he does it (and why he looks that way). Brian defended AWK's honor as best he could. My own views on him should be clear (in one word = garg).

I didn't even realize his existence until Saturday night, when one of my housemates was watching SNL. Andrew WK was the special guest. I sat through his "Party Hard" song - whoa, talk about an identity crisis! He seems to think he's hair metal, and he was headbanging (!!) and thrashing his limbs about violently during "Party Hard", which sounded, for the most part, like a very upbeat, major-chord, pop-punk song. Andrew WK seems like what would happen if Blink 182's music merged with Kid Rock's attitude and greasy hair.

Ack.

the genius sound engineers on snl fucked up again. u could barely hear awk's voice.. i he was fading in and out. he was horrible. what was the deal with snl this week? it went all haywire.

what i don't understand is why it's so impossible for most people around here to get awk's shtick, enjoy it or no...

As long as Starsailor exist, long may Andrew WK party on. The only thing I've heard recently that I liked, except for maybe Shakira.

dave q, Monday, 15 April 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

it's indie noise rock as produced by mutt lange...lightning bolt makes their pyromania. nah, i'm just saying that cuz awk (i actually like this shortening, it makes him sound like the annoying squwak of a newborn baby bird) was on bulb...seriously though, it's just power- pop/pop-metal/whatever. (the elton john-esque piano on most songs should be a big clue.) esp. when you hear the whole album (YES, it all sounds like Party Hard. that's the point...i think), it's so goddamn unrelenting that it becomes, if not art, then certainly a statement of sorts. (even if that statement is music should have ended in 1987. not one i necessarily agree with, but then again i'm not sure we've had a really, really great rock band since then anyway.) he's a doof who falls somewhere between tounge-in-cheek and endearingly earnest. which probably, actually, makes him a throwback to the early 90s rather than the mid-80s, but i really do think he means it, man.

he bigs up max martin and marilyn manson. he's just making shiny, dunderheaded glam metal. the shock and confusion he elicits eludes me.

jess, Monday, 15 April 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

yeah, I knew about the whole Bulb connection, and I guess that actually just befuddled me more. the keyboards! the keyboards! and the more i think about it, the more the Andrew WK guy strikes me as some sort of wannabe-Glenn Danzig.

I really hated it until about the 100th time I saw a clip of Party Hard after the Osbournes, you know how MTV plays like 3 seconds of a song after each show? Then I decided that I liked saying "Party hard" over and over again until the words have no meaning.

"Party Hard" is practically a bubble-gum record. It's fun, catchy, and takes precisely 0% effort to "get it". Is it the image everyone objects to? I'm way past embarassment on this one. Of course the whole package is absurd; it's pretty clear to me that's the point. Ok, go on, resist it if you want; it's your loss. Have you heard "New York City"? *sings*
I love... NEW YORK CITY!
Oh yeah!... NEW YORK CITY!

It's exactly as dumb as that sounds, and it's totally awesome. Yes, I did say "totally awesome".

Sean, Monday, 15 April 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Is it the image everyone objects to?

Just the dullness. And to heck with this 'resisting' idea, that makes it seem that liking it is somehow a natural or correct approach. Garbage. I don't resist Mr. WK, I just don't find the results worth a damn and worth the consideration.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 15 April 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Yeah I just think he's totally crap. Really on contrary overdrive with this one I fear.

I quite liked the "YOU.........YOU WORK ALL DAY" part of Party Hard but that's about it. It was oddly compelling.

jess, Monday, 15 April 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Because I'm so sweet and cuddly, and would not hurt a fly.

Your explanation vis-a-vis unrelenting noise that achieves transcendence in repetition certainly makes sense when it comes to the comparison with Lightning Bolt, say. I like that thought, I may take it as my own. ;-) But I like Lightning Bolt and think WK is go-nowhere codswallop. So they may have similar intents, but terribly different results.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 15 April 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

i agree that awk is "go nowhere"...becuz i can't figure out where the hell he could go! another album would probably sound exactly like "i get wet"...which would be pointless (yes, even more pointless than making the album in the first place.)

jess, Monday, 15 April 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Er, Ned -- if he's not worth the consideration, why're you considering him? Go-nowhere codswallop, elite strike team, etc.

(I think Andrew WK is funny, though I could only tolerate about 10 seconds of his SNL performance.)

The $64,000 question. ;-) Mostly it's because of the semi-assumption above I vigorously protest, namely that it is instantly catchy dumb pop/rock. WRONG, at least in my ears. His sin is not attempting his approach, his sin lies in doing so and failing miserably.

I skimmed through some of the songs on this album at the listening station the other day. I laughed out loud a couple of times because it was one of the most ridiculous things i'd ever heard. (esp. the little robo-voice thing that I think kicks off 'party hard' sweet!!) I then took the headphones off and continued on with my music shopping. I don't see my experience of Andrew WK going much beyond that.

Sean, Tuesday, 16 April 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Yeah I didn't think about it much but when he commands 'YOU ... YOU WORK ALL DAY' - that's the most compelling part of the song - like some kind of throwback to the idea of 'working class rock', obviously, but also SUCH a fascist command and besides, completely ignoring the out of work, insane underclass that he obviously comes from and which probably nurtured him (the guy is a drug abuser, not a working man!) - and by commanding you to think of yourself as a put- upon working guy, you're immediately like, 'yeah, screw them all! all those bosses, leaning on me ...' it's whiny, really ... you know, 'yeah, fuck you, I'm gonna get high because you hurt my feelings, so I deserve it.' It's the classic case of pre-drug intake - or worse - cognitions, the kitschy rationalisations. I mean, not that it would be better to give some kind of lecture on what you should do instead of taking drugs, ala Public Enemy et al, but to have perfected this 'talking to them on their own level' as an artform, - what kind of accomplishment is this? Except for a kitsch accomplishment, like producing the perfect velvet painting ... I thought about what Chuck Eddy said about Guns and Roses - something to the effect of that people complain about them being dumbshits and thus completely miss out on what's great about them, and that he hopes they (record labels?) keep the dumbshits coming. But the thing about Andrew WK is that he's far too pure to ever appeal except to those who are interested in 'art' - thus he really poses no threat to the masses, unlike NWA or the Beastie Boys who are seemingly answerable for millions of white American teenagers delusions of being put upon ... anyway I have to go.

maryann, Tuesday, 16 April 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

i find it hard to believe anyone identifies with andrew wk. whatever demographic he supposedly appeals to on a non-ironic level has to realize he's a total twerp so everyone can laugh and think i'm smart enough to realize andrew wk music is double digit IQ. it's dumb but i can like it anyway because i'm not a snob and there's nothing wrong with a lil mindless fun = selling point?

bc, Tuesday, 16 April 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

If it is, that's one of the crappiest selling points I've seen in a while, mostly because of this idea that those who will like it aren't 'snobs.' I'm not saying that's your own conclusion, I should note -- but if it's the company's or WK's conclusion, then they really can go fuck themselves.

It seems that not to like WK is apparently a sign of being anti-pop, being anti-dumb fun, being a snob, being humorless, being too serious, being a poor sport, etc. I find all these assumptions wanting.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 16 April 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I'm not making any assumptions about people who don't like WK, unless they actually say something like "WK is too dumb for me" in which case I think I can assume away.

You, Ned, don't like Andrew WK because he's unmemorable - this tells me nothing about you except your ears work in v.different ways from mine (which I knew anyway) and that you make a lot of fuss about a property (unmemorableness) that doesn't bother me. In fact it's you who's applying an assumed framework to WK - he is pop therefore he must be catchy. I happen to think he is catchy and pop but more than that I love him for the noises and textures: WK tracks make me think of cross-section pictures of the earth's crust, this vast layer of magma and rock (the guitars) with this tiny pretty layer of trees and grass perfectly balanced on top (the keyboards).

I've been listening to "I Get Wet" most of the day yesterday driving around the Bay Area (where I finally got to meet the notorious Kris Srinivasan, and dropped by the house of a member of a certain band that Mark Sinker really dislikes), and it kinda hit me why I like it..

It's basically a heavy sugary Devo, with a wrestler's voice. And maybe a little Elton John/John Tesh on the piano bits. The whole metal image seems to be a non-clever rue to make Mr. WK to be some sort of rock god, where in fact, I enjoy the music for all the reasons BUT.

Brian MacDonald, Wednesday, 17 April 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

But where are the geysers, earthquakes and volcanoes, Tom? Without that, Gaia is sterile and dies. ;-)

he is pop therefore he must be catchy

*scratches chin* Now this makes me wonder...can it be possible to create something intentionally uncatchy but aimed at a pop audience? Nothing to do with Andrew WK now, more thinking about what pop 'should' be.

There's a theory that the "original" AWK is not the same guy that it is now, but I'm not sure if I believe it. There was a site that detailed all this that had some very convincing evidence, but it also had some weird ties into the Illuminati and junk like that, so I think a lot of it is your standard conspiracy stuff.

I'm guessing there's something weird going on with it all since it's effected things like the US release of Close Calls (4 years late) but I do thing AWK is purposely making things ambiguous and vague

I was at an Andrew WK gig last month and it was really quite disappointing. That Alisteir X guy really needs to get off the stage. And the audience needed to be allowed ON the stage. Oh well, never mind. I was lucky enough to be in this video and my pals and I all had a great time. It's a new thing that Andrew did with the Evaporators.

I saw him twice last January (one full-band, one solo @ keyboard and playing classic radio jams for audience members to karaoke to) and both were great; the audience were all over the stage. One 120kg-looking hairy sweatball got upset when the crowd started moving out of the way the FOURTH time he tried to stagedive.

Θ ̨Θƪ (sic), Tuesday, 10 January 2012 00:01 (seven years ago) Permalink

Previous experiences with him have been wondrous but this one was at a shitty venue with terrible sound, too big and too high of a stage which created this distance between him and the audience that I have never experienced before. And Aleister X was onstage with him the whole time, mugging like a maniac and generally dragging things down. I must say that the crowd were as enthusiastic as ever but I just wasn't feeling it.

It was a fantastically fun show; ceaseless energy and a phenomenally positive vibe to everything, right through both AWK's music and the sold-out, ecstatic, fist-pumping, pogo-ing, crowd-surfing, good-natured audience.

The London gig was hilarious and glorious, it was probably the most up-for-it crowd I've ever seen at a gig. Like there were more people up on the stage by the end than there were in the audience. One of the first people to invade the stage was in a banana suit and Andrew WK was hitting him on the head with an inflatable banana in time with the drums.

He shouldn't have upgraded the venue in London. Upstairs at the Forum was very sparsely populated indeed, though it didn't feel like a dead gig because of the energy from downstairs.

Put on "Close Calls" and "Mother of Mankind" again. Those are both killer. At his best he's got this awesome Sparks/Cardiacs vibe, but a little heavier. I observed the same thing that someone upthread did about "Kicks and Bricks" - when placed next to everything else, it does really sound like a different person. Of course, maybe he's the same but he just decided to stop singing like that to preserve his voice...?

I admit to being really baffled by the guy. For someone who writes 800-word responses to simple questions in interviews it's crazy how little actual information we have on him. All the stuff contenderizer and co. posted on CCWBW were totally OTM - there's something very sinister about this record, and it doesn't feel contrived or put on or anything, just really bizarre. I wonder if he'll do another one like it.

To answer etc's question, in Milwaukee he played all of I Get Wet, with some interludes of him banging on a piano, then a few from the Wolf, and only one tune from Close Calls ("You Will Remember Tonight"). "Head Bang" from the new EP was played and it's as awesome live as you'd expect.

repping for multinational junk food IS pretty sinister, even if he's being ironic/over-the-top:
"Andrew W.K. - I eat all the best food! Taco Bell, always! And lots of candy, obviously. And I eat tons of Pringles chips, and cheese crackers like Cheese Nips, and I eat lots and lots of microwave meals, like frozen burritos, Hungry Man XL dinners, and Stouffer's meals. And I also love Chunky soups - just all the best tasting food. It's my joy! I eat this food at home too, not just on the road. My goal is always to just eat as much good food as possible, all the time. When we stop at gas stations and truck stops, it's like an amusement park for me! I'll buy three of every single candy bar they have, and then lay them all out on the table in our bus so you can really appreciate the spread and their awesome wrappers. You can have any of them that you want! It's like our own personal candy store. I also get lots and lots of pizza and cheese burgers, french fries, fried chicken. And like I said before, I eat at Taco Bell whenever I see one, even if I'm not that hungry. Sometimes I'll eat at Taco Bell three times in one day. It's all part of my heavenly life. It's just pure happiness. "

It’s possible that someone outside of the State Dept. who wasn’t aware of the trip initially became incensed that they weren’t informed before. Apparently some of these unknown higher-up officials were on my side and others were deeply offended by the idea of me going.
