We’ve all been there – it’s late, you’re tired, there’s a door, you knock on it. Next thing you know Mr T is making you his bitch and personal glove puppet… DEVENDRA , you never fail to surprise and delight us.
It’s not everyday you and your band end up flying through the anus of a butt-shaped planet in a large pill-shaped vessel, dancing in a cartoon with mythical creatures and throwing a party therein with fab from the strokes and a wu tang clanner (Think Bedknobs and Broomsticks pre island of Naboomboo on acid minus Angela Lansbury). All in a days work for DEVENDRA BANHART though. Enjoy.
so pleased he’s back on UK soil! DEVENDRA BANHART on the Jools Holland freedom festival last night. Sporting a magnificent tache and accompanied by his drummer and, er, accomplice from MEGAPUSS. Soothing stuff.
