Will Oldham in The New Yorker

Will Oldham (a k a, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, winner of Voreblog’s Album of the Year for Lie Down in the Light) gets profiled in The New Yorker. We were not aware he is a collector of Muslim bumper stickers. Or that he played the role of a police officer in R. Kelly’s “Trapped in the Closet.” We’re glad someone got to the bottom of this.

    nyi: so you don’t like to talk about yourself
    wo: yep
    nyi: okay, um…
    wo: uh…yeah.
    nyi: so what do we do now?
    wo: um…here’s a book of lyrics i don’t how to sell
    nyi: thanks!
