Burial

hi

for a while theres been some talk about who i am , but its not a big deal. i wanted to be unknown because i just want it to be all about the tunes. over the last year the unknown thing become an issue so im not into it any more.
im a lowkey person and i just want to make some tunes, nothing else. my names will bevan, im from south london, im keeping my head down and just going to finish my next album, theres going to be a 12" maybe in the next few weeks too with 4 tunes. hope u like it, i'll try put a tune up later

sorry for any rubbish tunes i made in the past, ill make up for it

a big big thank you to anyone who ever supported me, liked my tunes or sent me messages, it means the world to me

big up everyone, take care, will ( burial )

"His announcement followed rumours in a newspaper that Burial might be a pseudonym for dance DJs Fatboy Slim or Aphex Twin." [BBC]

"In February the Independent reported that Will Bevan was Burial and Burial was Will Bevan. The electronica community was relatively nonplussed. 'So noted,' they seemed to say. Hot Chip's Joe Goddard recalled Bevan being ahead of him at the Elliot Smith school in South London. And that, quietly, was that." [Guardian]

Burial is up for this year's Mercury Prize.

i like that whenever people can't figure out who an electronic artist is, they just assume it's aphex twin.

How the hell anyone could think it was Fatboy Slim obviously never listened to the music.

Ver clever to get all this talking when he was just recently nominated for the mercury prize... he deserves it tho.

Posted by Eduardo | August 6, 2008 11:57 AM

he deserves it...i could give fuck all about who he is...i respected what he was trying to do...letting the music speak for itself.

"letting the music speak for itself. "

clearly he has a speech impediment. what is this '96?

the Burial tunes are very very good

There's no shame in trying to remain anon ...like most of us here.

Glad he finally came out. Maybe he can make a few extra bucks with the added exposre (DJ appearances etc.)

He deserves it IMO. I love his music.

If you respect my musical opinions, I will respect yours, and nobody will get hurt.

Why did you ruin it?

To the anonymous who said:

'can I quote that Cleveland dude from Family Guy?

"Who cares?"'

1. Family Guy is a shite show that only morons like you watch.

2. It doesn't concern you who cares.

3. Nobody cares about your opinion, so feel free to express it elsewhere.
