Add your comment »

So the other weekend our man Akira The Don went over to New York to witness, nay judge the piano battle that he had cunningly instigated during an interview with Andrew WK.

Now, he's edited together footage from this most auspicious one-off event to give the TRUE, the FULL, the UNEXPURGATED account of how Chilly Gonzales emerged victorious.

Whow what a great show. Regardless of the result I think our beloved genius Gonzo finally found somebody who is on par with him.

When Andrew W.K. lectured during CMJ09 I took the opportunity to ask him about this.
