When I first became aware of Andrew WK in 2001, I had a theory that he was Ted ‘Theodore’ Logan, all grown up. Party on… hard. 


EDIT: In other news, this is my 666th post.

UPDATE: I received a message from an anonymous commenter with more details about AWK’s current band. Here is the new info:
"I’m not sure the first guy is Jimmy… He left the band probably 7 years ago. Other than him though, left to right: New bassist (don’t know his name), E. Payne(guitar), Justin Payne (guitar, also E. Payne’s son), Andrew, Rich Russo (drummer, DT is no longer in the band), SGT Frank Werner (guitar), Cherie Lily in front."
Thanks for the comment, and as always, any new info is always appreciated, just hit the links on the right to get at me!

This video has 100% less nudity than I was hoping for and 50% more LOLs than I was expecting.

PART OF THE BULLSH*T THAT MESSED MY LIFE IN 2005-2010: http://bit.ly/b7dnQJ @AndrewWK
Here’s me at age 16. Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The number of the beast. More teenaged Andrew WK.

'It's time to let you hear the song which earned me a juvenile restraining order'
Listen to the creepy strains of teenaged Andrew WK’s limerent desires thanks to the advice of his “personal manager and life coach” who urged him “to finally let people hear it, to resolve the nightmare”.
Lyrics are included, just follow the link!Frankly, I call marketing mumbojumbo on this one, but that photo is fucking fantastic and worth a reblog alone. My thanks to @BrianHastie for bringing this to my attention!

PARTY TIP: It’s OK to lie, but when you make a promise, keep it. A promise is more important than truth. @AndrewWK
Can someone ID the members of Andrew WK’s band? The third guy from the left told me I smelled nice before the show in 2002. At the time I assumed it was Donald Tardy, but I was wrong, since I believe he played guitar, not drums. The woman in front is Andrew’s wife, Cherie Lily, I think… but who’s everyone else?
EDIT: Oops, forgot to mention that the outstretched arms belong to Andrew himself, of course. Thanks to parkinthepark, here are some names: first from left, Jimmy Coup (guitar). Third from left, Erik Payne (guitar). The guy on the far right plays keys, but he is thus far nameless. Got any info to share? Don’t be shy.

Andrew WK plays the 2008 Gathering of the Juggalos to a largely unappreciative crowd, and is subsequently removed from the stage.

I feel gratified that two of my unofficial research projects (Andrew WK: Man of Myth and Juggalo Culture: Oxymorons) have come to such a thrilling intersection.

This is one of my most prized possessions. The original Vice magazine was a gift from a friend, and I took it to the first AWK show in Montreal, where Andrew was nice enough to write me a long note (and give me one of the best hugs ever) between swigs from a bottle of chocolate milk.
