Parties Hard! AWK for ATP petition emerges
<p>Moist, puke-happy and recently beardless <b>Andrew WK</b> has become the subject of a new petition concerning the second weekend of this May's All Tomorrow's Parties festival.</p> <p>The charismatic fun-core headbanger (who presumably hasn't changed those white jeans for six years now, best keep your distance) will already be appearing at the ATP versus The Fans weekend as part of the band for Current 73. However, having heard that Mr W.K. (what <i>does</i> that stand for?) will be on site, a group identifying themselves only as Those Who Wish To Party Hard have taken matters into their own hands in attempt to get their own slice of UK AWK dumb-rock action. </p> <p><i>"We British fans of Andrew have long suffered from a drought of LIVE AWK ROCK ACTION"</i>, the group states, with appropriate use of the upper case. <i>"We thus realise that Andrew's presence at what already looks to be an amazing weekend provides us and the wonderful ATP organisers with an opportunity NOT TO BE MISSED."</i> <p>Fancy signing then? <a href="http://www.runoutgroove.net/awk/">Close calls with click walls</a>.</p> ATP versus The Fans occurs on the 18th-20th of May.
