DELETED SCENES AND OUTTAKES
these days, SPOZ's RANT likes to think of itself primarily as a quasi professional music blog (hahaha.. yeah riight!) - as each and every week it showcases the best that the Adelaide live scene has to offer thru the medium of exceptionally arty live performance photography and by taking the absolute piss out've all the bands involved via SPOZ's exceptionally retarded and substandard gonzo journalism.. yup.. it's a hard life.. but someone's gotta do it :)
but of course, the tale I tell each and every weekend is never the entire story.. often details are left out.. often these details are trivial and the story could easily do without 'em.. sometimes I leave out perfectly good photo's because the detract from the flow of the story.. sometimes they are left out by request as they may embarass certain people.. sometimes I leave them out because they embarass ME..
and usually these bits never amount to much, just one or two stray photo's that nobody will miss.. the sorta sublime sillyness that would only appeal to a few people.. but this weekend.. due to a convergeance of all sorts of insane events I was damn near inundated with a ridiculous flood of silly photo's.. photo's I was itching to publish.. but for sake of length (and the time it takes to write these damn blogs these days) I had to leave out..
until now :)
presenting, for one time only - DELETED SCENES and OUTTAKES from SPOZ's weekend.. witness all the insanity, the horror, the sublime and retarded comedy in all it's beer fueled technicolour glory.. oh yes.. be afraid.. be very afraid.. this shit's about to get reaaaally messy..DUMB FUN WITH THE BLARNEY HAT
you may recognise this first photo from the weekend blog.. MEL on Friday Night wearing a silly hat.. but, wot I failed to mention was that this wasn't the ONLY silly hat photo we took.. as is often our habit when it comes to silly hats we decide to make a bit of a game of it by seeing just how many victims we could get to wear this hat on camera.. often with silly results..
so here I am, making an absolute twit of myself for the camera..
here's the other idiot responsible for the prank..
a whole selection of our other friends getting in on the act..
one of LAURA's friend's..
GEDDY from MUNCHKIN..
SCOTTY from THE BLACK DOVES (looking waay too much at home in this hat)
MARIO from THE BLACK DOVES (duuuude.. that's freaaaky..)
and um.. nope.. dunno who'ever the hell THIS freak is..
SALLYCAT makes for a stylish fashion statement..
whilst others damn near make it look respectable..
EZZA, aka: BEANIE GIRL gives it a spin..
and METAL MONKEY attempts to bust it out large..
we rope in a whole stack of other idiots for cheap laughs..
this one just looks wrong..
this one looks like my alcoholic year 10 english teacher in highschool..
whilst some are suitably horrified by the madness we're unleashing..
(more so than others)
others are strangely more than happy to oblige.. aaaaah :)
and here's the guitarist from REALIST FEW, looking like the spitting image of that IRAQI INSURGENT leader the US military had wiped out recently (whoooaaaa.. scary)
some of the bar staff also fell victim to our prank (many went into hiding.. hi TAM!)
whilst others weren't terribly all that fussed..
this just scares us by how well it matches the REST of her outfit..
whilst this one looks like she doesn't even remember what planet she's on..
and finally ANDREAS from SOFT WHITE MACHINE sends all us idiots off into the night..
and no, I have NO freaking clue where the hell this hat originally came from either.. but thanks whoever you are (I think we returned the hat to you eventually, riight? ;)ANGELIK FREE FOR ALL
in taking live photo's of this band on Saturday night.. one moment I failed to capture was when I accidently ended up on stage near the end of their live set with about 10 other people going nuts.. obviously I didn't take any photo's since I wuz too busy jumping around like a retarded loon.. but thankfully, some other freaks out there DID take some photo's and have since forwarded them to me (cheers to NICK HADLEY and LAKEN from ANGELIK for sending these down.. you guys rock :)
if yer looking for which one's me.. I'm the hairy idiot in the black stripy shirt, just to the left of lead singer LAKEN, going nuts..
makes me wonder tho'.. is this the new gimmick peeps are doing at gigs now? now that moshing and crowd surfing are sooooo last decade? get everyone up on stage instead? damn.. first it wuz IGGY POP at the BIG DAY OUT, then THE PRESETS just 2 weeks ago.. and now this? when will the madness ever cease?
speaking of madness.. fucked up drunken duets anyone?
um no.. perhaps not.. ;)
things got even messier after the gig.. I don't even KNOW who the hell this guy is..
um.. yeaaaah.. moving on.. shall we?
and funny to think I still left out photo's even WORSE than these.. ;)THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF TIBOR
aaaah yes, TIBOR - bass player from Melbourne band JIKA, deranged fan of MAYNARD from TOOL, insane beer fueled party animal.. and here on holidays for the weekend looking to go beserk on the Adelaide party circuit.. a few of the photo's of his antics made it to the weekend blog.. but, here's the full scope of his drunken rampage..
and no.. I don't have ANY freaking clue who 1/2 of all these people are..
and yet, I took photo's of 'em regardless, go figure..
yup.. you begin to sense a bit of a theme here..
with occassional variations..
as TIBOR brings the METAL to the masses..
he just kept on going and going doesn't he?
perhaps in effort to teach nasal hygiene to the masses?
TIBOR, SIMONE and TIMMY THE MONKEY..
TIMMY steals the spotlight..
only to reunite with his long lost brother, VLAD the freaky 7ft tall guitarist from JIKA..
phew.. this shit just kept on going huh?
now this is just getting messier..
just so I don't feel left out, I get in on the act..
as this shit continues well into the night..
phew.. you'd think he'd get bored of this wouldn't ya?
and yet.. after enough of this stupidity..
it all pays off in the end.. ROOOOCK!
(aaaaaah, I never get sick of posting this photo! :)
so, there ya go..
all the bits I didn't publish from this weekend..
(and likely for good reasons too.. hahahaaha)
