Patrick Wolf's New York show at Misshapes was reviewed by the New York Times. Did you hear what happened? Let's just say it's something he'll want to forget... Fan cracked-lcd318 reports:
The drummer was really fucked up on something and stopped playing during the libertine, i think. he was just staring off into space for the longest time, it was really creepy and kind of disturbing.... patrick and the viola player started smacking the hell out of him and Patrick hit him with a drum+drum stand
and then told him to get off the stage and that he was fired....he tried to get back onstage and talk to patrick but he wasnt having any of it and the security guards took him offstage. but they went on without him and it was great regardless, at the end several people jumped onstage and were dancing.
Disappointing. Look, they are young and I do love him. He seems like a good egg and is no doubt uber-talented, but if he doesn't manage his gift tightly - and this includes the caliber of people around him - shit will go down. See pics of it among the shots on JunkMag
In brighter news, cool indie blog Lycanthropy is hosting Patrick's new b-side for the 7" of The Magic Position: On Sussex Downs, a beautiful, beautiful cover of a Larrikin Love song. Get it fast - it is one of the best b's he's done yet.

I am fucked and I am fucking too!
