Imagine if Battles and A Lull had an illegitimate child, who was then abandoned into the wilderness. Who, according to fellow writer Jimmy Roxy, adopted the vocals of the Beach Boys. Eventually, should the child emerge and successfully avoid becoming Victor of Aveyron, you’d get Grand Rapids, Michigan’s Ghost Heart. Oh. And a timpani…that they tour with.

Victor was seen at the end of the 18th century in the woods of Saint Sernin sur Rance, in the south of France and captured but somehow escaped. In January 8, 1800 he was caught again. He was about 12 years old, his body covered in scars and unable to speak a word.  All images © Julia Fullerton-Batten
