He had a major problem with his manager that kept him from releasing material in the U.S. or touring or performing it. That's why he was doing stuff like hosting 'Destroy Build Destroy.' Obviously he's cleared it up.
I remembered this from MTV2 back in the day when he released Party Hard and She Is Beautiful. Didn't really think much of it at the time, but I recently just discovered that he was playing in England. Went on YouTube and listened to some songs, and eventually I've been playing I Get Wet regularly. It's just a great feel good album.
So yes, I will be catching him in a couple of months time in Antwerpen. And if I enjoy that way too much I might just go to Amsterdam the following day, but we'll see.
I didn't know Andrew W.K .was still around. I thought he just kind of faded in to oblivion. Wasn't Close Calls with Brick Walls initially just released only in Japan?
Loved him when I was a teenager. I pet he'd put on a great show. I Get Wet is a fun album.
Haha totally saw him at the Minneapolis/St. Paul Zombie pub crawl back in October, he played the St. Paul side of the crawl.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die." - Roy Batty
Oh hell yes! Thank you! That album was awesome. I'll never forget seeing him live during undergrad. After the show he came out to the field party and smoked up with a bunch of kids and talked about Pink Floyd and classic rock for like three hours. I'm totally going to the chicago show.
