Antony and the Johnsons

Friday, May 1, 2009
While finishing up a book last night, I receive a text saying:

Oh my god. If you are still up turn to CBS right now! The late show with Craig Ferguson.

Why?

It just went to commercial! I don't know who it was but it was a man - i think - who was really scary looking - I can't even describe it.

She wasn't wrong. Ten minutes later I am looking up Ferguson's guest list and find the man to be lead singer of Antony and the Johnsons.  I admit upon first glance -  I expect him to be terrible. I have apparently missed the first grade lesson on judging a book by its cover. 

How can you really be this eerie and be so famous? I mean, musicians are weird. There are some really strange ones on record that are brilliant and phenomenal but...

But...

Then i start listening to his music, and he kind of reminds me of hmm...  Jeff Buckley with a titch of Tiny Tim (had to).  Of course, no one will ever match Buckley, but this guys voice has the same kind of haunting beauty. Extremely uncomfortable, awkward beauty, but beauty nonetheless. 

I  kind of like it
