“What Ratio of Your Blood to Pig’s Blood Are We Talking About Here?”

Andrew W.K. on I Get Wet and the 33 ⅓ book series.

The 33 ⅓ book series features short volumes about music that allow writers to go long on a wide variety of albums. As the series celebrates its 10th year and 100th volume, Slate caught up with energetic and enigmatic musician Andrew W.K. and Phillip Crandall—the author who profiled him and his legendary album I Get Wet for the series—to talk about the book, the album’s memorably bloody cover, and the definition of party.
