the man behind georgie fruit

Monday, 8 December 2008

of Montreal 's Kevin Barnes is obsessed with suicide, Prince, and borrowing his wife's tights. He has chronic depression and takes his medication whenever he feels like being introspective and weird. At one live show, in between surreal sets, sexually ambiguous performers, glitter, booze, makeup and drugs, Barnes performed fully nude against projected clips of seventies gay porn. Rolling Stone describes him as Freddie Mercury on helium. I need more friends like him.

I feel that being an ultra-trippy damaged genius and front man of a psychedelic indie pop band was pretty cool this year. Maybe that will be my new years resolution? Last year it was to be Alison Goldfrapp, but she's not zany enough anymore. I'm quite into the whole Ben Goldwasser/Ziggy Stardust thing.
