The frontman for Blur and Gorrillaz is another year older today – and I’m to assume there’s been a fair few of them now.
Checking in on Damo’s Twitter feed, you’ll be presented with this message:
…perhaps he doesn’t write his own tweets.
Unless of course he was on a big bender celebrating and talks about himself in the third person whilst off his face – which is entirely possible.
In any case, cheers matey and have a good one.
Hi all, it’s Az here with your weekly dose of music that you almost forgot about.
And then it hit me. Damn, I’ve got to put a Bullet song in this Friday.
So I can’t go past this gem from back in 2005, featuring every guy’s former ex-girlfriend and a reminder of past crazypants episodes:
There’s a reason why this clip has had 111m views. It’s fucking mad.
Those close to our band will know that I’m a bit of a BC Rich nut and the fact that Matt Tuck used to be a BC Rich endorser is not lost on me. He’s moved on from them now (most endorsers do) but I forgive him. In fact, I have to totally confess to my massive man crush on the guy.
As a bonus clip, I’ve included a full concert. That’s a first for me in this segment. It’s a show that Bullet did less than 12 months ago in Moscow but it’s one of my favourites of theirs that I’ve seen. If you spend the time watching it yourself, you’ll know what I mean. The Venom album was a big comeback for them and this setlist is basically the perfect selection of songs of theirs and in the perfect order. I really should make a Spotify playlist of it or something and share it.
Playing golf. Australia says no.
Hi all, Az here.
I thought I’d share this article that was brought to my attention by your friend and mine Rhys Campion, touching on the growing murmurs of Acker Dacker doing new music with Axl Rose on vox whilst they have him with them.
My personal thoughts? A big thumbs down. Old mate below says it best.
Here’s the problems I foresee:
Here’s a thought. Let’s get Matt Tuck from Bullet For My Valentine a perm and baret and put him in the band instead. He’d be in his fucking element. He’s no stranger to side projects with names that exemplify Australian humour either.
Hi all, Az here.
So you might have seen my post yesterday about a really cool Slash Edition BC Rich Mockingbird guitar that I liked.
I found this on eBay:
That’s significantly cheaper than the AU$5000 guitar I posted yesterday – and, if I’m going to be honest, under priced. I’m in shock.
So now all I need is a black market to sell a kidney to and that guitar will be mine.
I suppose I better start taking up smoking and grow my hair long. Shit’s gettin’ real.
