“Crandall gets at the heart of Andrew W.K. better than any other previous writer. You'll know this much after reading the first few pages of his book. What you'll have to ponder after you've finished reading is the way in which Andrew connects the dots among I Get Wet, Daydream Nation, Appetite for Destruction, Dr. Feelgood, OK Computer, Slippery When Wet, Loveless...” ―Paul Gleason, Caught in the Carousel
“Phillip Crandall's book about Andrew WK's I Get Wet has been one of my favourites from this wonderful series of books. Fans will love it, sure. But if you're like me, if you didn't quite get the fuss first time around, you'll not only find a funny, sad, fascinating story, you'll find great heart-on-(record)-sleeve writing.” ―Simon Sweetman, Blog On The Tracks

Being a big fan of Andrew W.K., I was anxious to read a bit more about him. Now I will have to keep my eyes open for other books in this series about artists I enjoy.
I ripped through this is one sitting. I laughed aloud several times, most often with some of the details of AWK's antics. (The apt fire is a favorite) And the book is worth it for those fantastically small moments alone. The key with them is the well paced set-up and drops which handled by others would not have the same punch. Laughs aside, the real coup is the revelation of Andrew WK himself. I learned a lot from the book about his art. And as a person who shamefully only knew AWK by his MTV video and SNL appearance (in the book) I might be inclined to be like his many critics - boxing him in as "bubble-gum metal". This book has made me change my entire perspective of what may be a musical and performance genius. Its a cliche (but one with a point) but I was judging his book by his cover - which is ironic because... look at that cover. So great.
I now picture a shy, dizzy kid growing up spreading an important 5-letter message ("P-A-R-T-Y") of eagerness for life and inclusion, which feels like the point Phil Crandall was making. If so point taken.Read more ›
