If you thought every human story had already been told in pop, you were almost right. Evelyn Evelyn are conjoined twins Lyn and Eva Neville of Kansas.

At least, that's the official version, but – disappointingly – they are actually fictional characters, "played" by Dresden Doll Amanda Palmer and Brechtian busker Jason Webley. If this sounds like a sick joke, fear not: their cabaret-meets-country autobiography is executed with empathy, humaneness and a dark wit embodied by the song title "You Only Want Me Cos You Want My Sister".
