sorry, another antony & the johnsons post.
they are currently on a u.s. tour, i’m seeing them next week in seattle. antony live shows are something that needs to be wittnessed to understood. the moment he starts singing no one breaths or makes a sound, it can be intense. but sometimes if the crowd is lucky, antony breaks into a story, and you find out that antony is a pretty amusing storyteller. here is antony telling the story of an ex-boyfriend and the ideas behind “cripple and the starfish”, from a show in toronto last week.
