Burial Revealed!
And no, he's not Aphex Twin or Fatboy Slim


Believe it, folks. The enigma that is Burial is an enigma no longer. In a message posted to the artist's official MySpace page today, Burial revealed himself to be a "lowkey" South Londoner by the name of Will Bevan who "just want[s] to make some tunes." The photo over there also appeared on Burial's MySpace, and, what do you know, he looks just like a less stylized version of the dude on the cover of Untrue.

Anyhow, here's what Burial had to say:


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 )

And there you have it! A wise PR move, considering Burial is the favorite for this year's Mercury Prize and the talk of the UK press these days. Upstanding UK rag The Sun even put a call out to its readers to help unmask the mysterious dubstepper, suggesting he may in fact be Aphex Twin or Fatboy Slim's Norman Cook.

And hey, new Burial 12" on the way and album three nearing completion! Nice!

i'm glad the speculation is over.

he's said he can't dj, so let's wait for new tunes.
