Andrew WK seems to be enjoying a resurgence in popularity of late. He played at Meredith a couple of years ago (to be fair, he was kind of sucky though) and people seem to be pretty pumped that heâ€™s coming to play at the Big Day Out next year. His early noughties party anthems are old enough now that theyâ€™re almost retro and suddenly Andrew W.K holds a special place in our hearts once again.
So Iâ€™ve only just stumbled upon this conspiracy theory that his whole career is kind of a sham and that his persona is as manufactured as Britney Spears or the Pussycat Dolls.
Am I the last person to know about this?
This website has been been set up as a central information source on the Andrew W.K conspiracy theory and to present all the facts on who exactly Andrew Wilkes-Krier really is.
If you have some decent time to kill this is a pretty interesting read. In fact, this could be the basis for a pretty awesome movie script if you ask me. Do you hear that movie-producer-people-with-loads-of-money?
Itâ€™s all a bit weird, including the part where a random guy performed as Andrew W.K in 2004 who was not in fact Andrew W.K.
BUT the most important question is: who would play Andrew W.K in the movie adaptation?
Skeet Ulrich much?!

P.S: Apparently AWK actually admitted he wasn’t the original AWK in this talk he did in London in January. I don’t have speakers here so please do report back on your findings.
