The Mannequin Never Wanes

The Wax Mannequin column is coming. The Wax Mannequin column is coming. The Wax Mannequin column is here. Meet the man who is to irony as the Maytag repairman is to dryers.

If you are in the Toronto area, do yourself a favour and do not miss Wax at the Rivoli tonight; if you are in the Canada area, don't miss him when he comes your way sometime between now and April. "Rock 'n' roll will never die, rock'n'roll will never die./ The rock won't stop, the roll won't stop, the rock won't stop rock'n'roll." Sometimes I more than half-believe it.

Carl,

That's the best article on Wax Mannequin I've ever read. And I've read a few. I've been following Chris' adventures for a couple years now (since a shocking and amazing performance at the Engineer's Hall in Belleville) and I've been absolutely enamoured by his mythical persona and the madness of The Kroger Chronicals.

Anyway, most articles and interviews make Chris sound kinda goofy, or make his eccentric gimmicks zany, but I've spoken to him at length about Wax Mannequin and what he's doing and clearly there are ideas there, and it really is something important. I think you've conveyed that nicely.

By the way, if you're interested, I put on a bi-monthly event called The Bedsprings Talent Show and Wax performed at the first edition in December. It was recorded and is available on CD with a zine of the thing (kind of a low-rent Wavelength in my living room. with magic.)

Nice site by the way. I enjoyed Tin Tin Tin too.
