ILLUMINATED: Hutz, here in a Brixton pub, says he has “come to be content in my restlessness”


Eugene Hutz is drawing glances. he’s in London’s Brixton Market, amid the sensory barrage of exotic aromas, vibrant garb and competing bass lines, dressed in a purple jacket and trying on ladies’ wigs. When he finds one he likes, he lets out a strange yowl, twirling the fake blonde locks around his head in celebration. But it’s not Hutz’s clothes or wig that have people staring.
