There are all different types of music for all different types of moods. Its true that it really is horses for courses and tonight's race is for some of the acts that I've heard and thought 'wow, that guy is nuts/brave/lucky to walk out of here alive'. Sadly I've not seen any of them live but I'd love too.
(Beware, this week may contain swearing and strong humour)
First up and its a man who loves controversy.
STRANGERS ON MY FLIGHT by Frank Sinazi
This guy is a Sinatra impersonator who rocks up as Adolf Hitler. Yeah. You read that right. Now before you scream 'Nazi!' at me just chill. I find Nazi's funny because if I didn't laugh, then I would be throwing cups and shouting about them. I laugh them off because its the way I live with the strength of my reaction towards them and their existence in general. I laugh at this guy because I think his dark comedic blend of Hitler and Sinatra is just right.
It works for me but I'm going to put up one of the lighter ones so that he doesn't hit you with the full force of his act, which to be honest is pretty strong.
Enjoy if possible, I think he's brilliant but I still can't work out how he came to the point where he decided this act was a 'good idea.'
GET DOWN WITH THE SICKNESS by Richard Cheese
A lounge singer that covers rock classics with his tongue rammed so far into his cheek that its bursting out of his flesh spraying the front row with blood. Cheese covers are inspired for the most part but again the humour is very strong. His cover of Nirvana's 'Rape Me' isn't going to win him friends but it is to here that we come...to get down with the sickness.
This is brilliant, every single damn second of it. Horrible and cheerful and brilliant.
THE MEDICAL LOVE SONG by Monty Python
There are many songs of note by the genius group of comedians known as Monty Pythons Flying Circus, but if I have to pick one that makes me smile without ever letting me down it is the Medical love song.
Its clever, suprising, disgusting, laugh out loud funny and I love every damn second of it. From the very first line you know you are listening to 'the anti boyband' and you will never be the same again.
AMERICAN JEDI by Weird Al Yankovic
This has been heard by everyone, fucking everyone, but lets just say you have been living under the worlds biggest rock. I haven't the words to describe it other than Episode one meets Don McClaine.
Its the great and terrible monster to finish it this week. I warn you...if you listen you will have it in you're ear for months.
This week I needed cheering up. Not sure its worked but if its done the trick for you then I'm a happy boy.
Feel the need to have a theme suggestion then just comment.
See you next monday.
