If the kids on "The OC" were poor goth kids instead of rich hipsters, then I wouldn’t be surprised if Patrick Wolf would be as popular as Conor Oberst is right now. Mr. Wolf in general is a little hard to fully understand and take in. He was “found” as a child by art collective Minty and record label Capital K. They gave him a computer to record on and a plethora of synthesizers to play with. His prodigal childhood and effeminacy ultimately lead to much bullying. This uncertainty is shown in some of his songs, which are full of hope. He also tends to occasionally dress up in a dress to perform, making him stand out from all the other sweater-vest indie rockers of today.
