Burial Reveals Himself/Overuses The Word “Tunes”

August 06, 2008

Yesterday the cat was let out of the dubstep bag when Burial revealed both his face and his identity. Not only is he not a very old white dude as we imagined, but his government name turns out to be is Will Bevan. We're pretty sure he's not related to former FADER intern and current FADER contributor David Bevan. But also of note in Burial/Bevan's coming out MySpace bulletin (reprinted after the jump) is that he uses the word "tune" or "tunes" six times over the course of one hundred and sixty-two words. Also the title of the bulletin is "tunes."


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
