The Donkeys: Living On The Others Side


Look. Here’s the deal: I love LOST (See: my John Locke action figure, Series 1 box set of The Hatch, Dharma Initiative pint glasses) and I hate keeping secrets. It’s just my luck that I would be in on a secret about LOST. A blessing and a curse.

Welp, SPOILER ALERT: The Smoke Monster is actually Carey Mercer.

JK, guyz.

You all everybody’s favorite ’70s rock band from a magical island, Geronimo Jackson, is really Dead Oceans’ very own The Donkeys. The creators of LOST spill all the beans in the new issue of Wired which you can read here. Personally, I’m just glad I can talk about it now. The only thing harder than trying to figure out all the secrets of LOST is actually trying to keep one.

Check out The Donkeys on tour this Spring with WHY? and Deerhoof below:
