Interview with The Andrew W.K.

Many of you may know that we at Lost In Reviews are all big, big fans of the epic Andrew W.K. One might think, “Why? He is just a crazy screamer who sings about partying?” Well you would be only initially correct. He does like to scream his praise about partying, but there is a deeper layer to his scream and his love for putting everyone in a great mood. His motive in life seems to be to please everyone around him. He is never one to turn down a hug request from a fan, or cancel a show due to a lightning storm. He would see that as an opportunity to make the best of the day.

Ryan sat down with Andrew W.K. during the Van’s Warped Tour on it’s stop in Bonner Springs and talked about many things from the progression of his band, to how many bananas is a safe amount to consume before puking. He even educated us in who the inventor of the Almond Joy and Mounds Bar is… Peter Paul.

If you haven’t already, pick up his latest release, Close Calls with Brick Walls as well as his previous work.
