The True Life Story Of Bonnie (Or "Bonny") "Prince" Billy

“Bonny’s parents performed intercourse merely once, but it was deeply tantric, lasting so long they conceived and birthed 3 children during the single act. Bonny was born Siamese twins, conjoined at every part of the body—overlapped perfectly on top of one another so he looked like just one guy. During puberty, Bonny’s Other began to itch, so he underwent a procedure to be surgically separated from himself, cell by cell. When doctors attempted to reassemble the extracted Boniface, they wound up with just two frogs, a jaybird, and a monkey holding a banjo. It was at this point he began to noodle around with music.”
I do not like the name under which Will Oldham and David Byrne have chosen to release the five songs they recorded as a duo for the upcoming Sean Penn movie, This Must Be the Place. (Though I am very interested in seeing the movie—which is named after an older song of Byrne’s—as Sean Penn is one of my very favorite actors, and his character, a mopey aging goth rocker, seems to be mostly based on the Cure’s Robert Smith, who is one of my favorite mopey aging goth rockers.) But I like very much the artist bio Oldham wrote for himself, under his alias Bonnie “Prince” Billy, for the new (patent pending!) direct-sale media distribution platform, Gyroskope.
