Terrible news! Burial unmasked himself. On Myspace!

From his blog:

hi

for a while theres been some talk about who i am , but its not a big deal
i wanted to be unknown because i just want it to be all about the tunes.
over the last year the unknown thing become an issue so im not into it any more.
im a lowkey person and i just want to make some tunes, nothing else. my names will bevan, im from south london, im keeping my head down and just going to finish my next album, theres going to be a 12” maybe in the next few weeks too with 4 tunes. hope u like it, i’ll try put a tune up later

sorry for any rubbish tunes i made in the past, ill make up for it

a big big thank you to anyone who ever supported me, liked my tunes or sent me messages, it means the world to me


big up everyone, take care, will ( burial )

Precisely, Burial was all about the tunes. Without the individual, the celebrity, the personality, his music was free to be a decentered process, a pure rhythm machine—to use Kodwo’s language. This posthumanism, however, was not cold or indifferent but very emotional. This stands as one of Burial’s great achievements: expressing the emotional state of an individual without the presence (or weight, or density) of the individual. That is now all in the past. From here on, we must refer the music to a center, a genius, a one and only Will Bevan.

Now we just need to know who Banksy is and all of the world's mysteries will be solved.

besides a picture and a name, there isn't much known about him (yet). i think the music can still exist and hold its own without the burial mystery / mythology.

Burial's mistake was to actually publicize the music. What was he thinking?

There are tons of people who bust their asses trying to publicize themselves who are far less known than the previously unmasked Burial.

Honest question: Charles, do you own any other music besides Burial?

honest answer: because all music leads up to burial, everything to this one point, all the rest of music is nothing but what will become burial.

Awesome. Now there's a real name and face to boring overhyped music.
