Miserly Bastards Barrel of Monkeys to Put on Worst Show Ever

By BOM 19 April 2006 13

Local rock act Barrel of Monkeys are set to play what could be deemed the worst show ever this Saturday at Pete’s Bar and Tavern.

“We are putting on four really bad bands, including us, that we think yous [sic] the punter will absolutely hate, we are all just really horrendous” Barrel of Monkeys cross dressing bass player Planet Planet has said. “On top of that we are only giving away two free beers to the first forty punters. That’s eighty one beers, we really pride ourselves on being tight arses”.

The band is set to play alongside Sydney siders Soma and local boys Embryonic and A Nessesary Evil.

When asked what was so bad about the bands ” Really we (Barrel of Monkeys) are just a bunch of rock wannabe poofters [sic], Soma are just too bloody loud, Embryonic are a talentless crew of boy band tryhards and well I like to refer to A Nessary Evil as an Unnessary Evil, which I think speaks novels. ” Mr Planet said.

Paco 6:05 pm 21 Apr 06

In that case i look forward to that show! make sure it’s advertised well!!!!!!!!

Barrel of Monkeys friggin rule! Listening to them you can tell that their music has nothing to do with current trends or geographic location (def. not a Canberra sound!) They make themselves an easy target by being different, but I wouldn’t respect anything less. GO THE UNDERDOGS!!!

They know we want to play with them but they’re scared we’ll outdo them with our trendy clothes and make-up 😉

Marcus 2:48 pm 21 Apr 06

Dance With Amps is the single worst performing band eva! Don’t steal our title. Mal can verify this.

“please remove your grubby little fingers from my display cabinet…”

Blossy 11:25 am 20 Apr 06

That probably counts for most of us…

Absent Diane 11:06 am 20 Apr 06

because you have seen too many episodes of the simpsons…. and not seen barrel of monkeys nearly enough

Blossy 8:34 am 20 Apr 06

Why can’t I read this post without hearing in the Simpson’s “Comic Book Man” voice?
