(Warning – contains filthy foul language, not suitable for playing at work, or where there are children or snowflakes around)
If get this right, there will be many cover versions by future bands. I shall try and link live versions if they exist from the tellybox or a film, the sound quality may not be the best, but there is nothing like watching a real talent live.
If you have heard him before, you know what to expect. If not, then do try some of the songs, see what you think, unless you are easily offended or a bit of a snowflake.
This week, something completely different. Haters will hate, but if you do not mind the odd bit of swearing, and shall we say humour of an adult nature, these tunes will bring a smile to your face.
I have several of his CD’s, and now on a memory stick, so I can play them in the car. An excellent remedy if you are feeling a bit down. You soon learn the songs and singalong.
The featured track is The Kid (He Swears a Little Bit), just makes me laugh so much.
Kevin Bloody Wilson (born Dennis Bryant; 13 February 1947) is an Australian musical comedian who performs comical songs with his heavy Australian English accent and often including sexual themes. He has won one ARIA Music Award.
He was born in Bathurst, although he identifies with Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, where he was an electrician in the gold mines.
In the 1970s, Bryant fronted his own band called ‘Bryan Dennis and the Country Club’. He also used the name ‘Bryan Dennis’ when he hosted a country music show on radio 6KG in Kalgoorlie from 1973 to 1980, before he was thrown off air for playing the parody song, “I’m Heaving on a Jet Plane”.
He moved to Perth and began playing bawdy songs as a hobby, singing at pubs and Australian rules football clubs. In 1984, he put together a cassette of his songs called Your Average Australian Yobbo, which he sold at gigs and by mail order. He managed to sell 22,000 copies of the cassette before it was eventually transferred to LP, where it went on to sell many thousands more.
He is one of Perth’s most famous comedians. His humour is regarded by media commentators as politically incorrect. As one of Australia’s most successful comedians, he continues to tour and performs an average of 120 concerts worldwide each year.
Wilson is married, and his wife Betty comes on tour with him. She sells merchandise at shows and has appeared on guest vocals in a few of his songs, including “Dick’taphone”.
“The Genie in the Bottle” is a country song Kevin co-wrote with Adam Harvey that spent more than 6 weeks on the Australian Country Singles chart as well as reaching the number one video spot on the Country Music Television Channel in 2008.
The first song I heard him sing was – Stick that fucken phone – so funny. I think it is his good lady wife doing the lady operator words.
He does many tour dates each year. Link to next UK tour is here:
Singalong, enjoy and be happy!
