Antony & The Johnsons – Hope There’s Someone (2005)

YouTubeAmazoniTunes

On Later with Jools Holland in June 2005, I saw Antony Hegarty perform ‘Hope There’s Someone’. Later that year, on giving Hegarty the Mercury Music Prize for the album I Am A Bird Now, one of the judges would point out that the sound “…doesn’t seem to have any obvious place where it’s coming from – and yet play it to anybody and they’re arrested.¬†Some of them hate it, some of them absolutely love it – but nobody can ignore it”. Where does that voice come from?!
