Born in Sussex, England, Antony also spent his childhood in Amsterdam and the San Francisco Bay Area before moving to NYC at the age of 19. In 1992, he founded the performance collective Blacklips at the Pyramid Club, and spent the next several years developing his voice and ideas on late night stages around NYC.

Antony Hegarty Posts Short Essay on CocoRosie to Stereogum


“I have concluded that the reception of CocoRosie in the US reflects the denial of a greater feminist issue, an ecological issue, a racial issue, a spiritual issue. If we cannot face that our collective brokenness in these areas is the rockbed of our crisis as a virulent species, then we will continue in our blindness to dismiss our American art revolutionaries who are out in the field, working through exactly these issues.” – Antony Hegarty

Yesterday a great post went up at Stereogum that included an essay by Antony about CocoRosie.  You can read the entire essay, as well as entries by Yoko Ono, Nico Muhly and Annie Clark.  A few of the comments created a productive discourse about CocoRosie’s art, and the entries are beautifully-written and thought provoking.

Check out CocoRosie’s album, Grey Oceans, at Sub Pop.

ANTONY AND THE JOHNSONS ‘Cripple and the Starfish’ Metal ‘Positive’ Stamper for Auction on eBay

A piece of ANTONY AND THE JOHNSONS recording history can be yours if you bid now. Antony’s former label, Durtro, is auctioning off the metalwork used to manufacture “Cripple and the Starfish,” a track that shared a 7″ single with Current 93’s “Immortal Bird.” The piece up for auction is the 12″ metal stamper, which plays the right way on a record player (as opposed to the positives, which are used to press the vinyl and play backward). This unique piece of Antony memorabilia is primarily for decorative purposes and would be a nice addition to any fan’s collection.
