Earlier today one of Australia’s biggest artists Chet Faker caused a stir by announcing that he would no longer be making music under the moniker that he’s become famous for, and would instead revert to calling himself by his actual name: Nick Murphy.
The news has resonated pretty well with most fans, with many tweeting their support for Murphy’s decision.
you could call yourself big strong greg and i'd still bump to whatever you're gonna release next my guy

However, the decision couldn’t have come at a better time for a bunch of other musicians, who have all co-incidentally decided to change their own respective names to “Chet Faker” as of today.
Hi all, I'm changing my name to Chet Faker

Coincidentally, today I would like to announce that I will be releasing my next record under the name Chet Faker.

Well played sirs, well played.
