Patrick Wolf: "jailbait" takes new meaning



Do you think Patrick Wolf is jealous that I have been giving Sufjan Stevens so much attention on this blog? His label does not seem to be giving him the support he needs, for whatever reason. In the photo above he attempts to win me back by writing me a song on his tiny piano in Hyde Park...

Actually, I do have some very strange news about Patrick from his website/ webmaster:

Patrick Wolf is on police bail until August 3rd after being accused of burgulary of jewels froma next door neighbours house on July the 25th 2004. Patrick is completly innocent but caught up in a nightmare of circumstancial evidence. At the same time of the burgulary in Wandsworth, London last year, Patrick suffered a serious injury to his right arm after falling down a flight of stairs around midnight of July 24th. While falling Patrick tried to steady himself and ended up putting his arm through a window on the landing and fell unconscious. A friend came and took him to the hospital and on the return home that morning it turned out the house next door had been broken into. Because the burglars made attempts at breaking into the house by smashing a window and that Patrick had been asked to keep an eye out on the house and was also in possession of a set of keys, the C.I.D have come to the conclusion that Patrick was responsible.

This is the strangest story I have heard in ages. I always said he looked like a rent boy, but I didn't expect to read they'd hauled him off to the joint - or whatever they call it in London. Questions: 1) Why make an arrest on a burglary a year later? 2) What of the coincidence? Don't know what to say about that! Why would he break a window with his arm if he had keys? To make it look like a robbery. 3) Where are the jewels? If this were a movie we all know where they'd be: in the tiny piano!
