Patrick Wolf | The Child Catcher

June 1, 2007 at 6:40 am (Live, mp3s, Patrick Wolf)

Patrick Wolf

You could get away with calling Patrick Wolf a drama queen, to be sure; however, it’s that quality that endears him to so many of his fans, myself included. A little drama never hurt anyone, right? If you answered ‘yes’, then you’re sure to love this track, entitled ‘The Child Catcher’. As the title would suggest, the song is definitely disturbing, with some seriously screwed-up imagery, and Wolf on bone-chilling falsetto. But the best part is the piano. It’s the only instrument in this track, but its sound is so full you;d never notice; it starts out clean and precise, before finally falling to pieces. Highly recommended.

    As always, anything he puts out is incredible. Have you heard the original? What a dream.
    Also, there is a recording of him getting very *comfortable* with himself while performing this one. There’s silver lamé shorts…need I say more? 😀
