A battle Royale - Bob Dylan verses Neil Young:  

Sample ImageBattle royale March 15 and 16 at the Rob Roy hotel.    Stuart Day has been channelling Neil Young since “Tonight’s the Night” knocked his socks off in 1975. Since then there have been plenty of new socks, but only one Neil.   Aussie Bob was ‘groomed for the position’ of carrying Dylan’s music to the public. “He sounds more Bob than Bob does,” said one Fringe blogger last year. “I’m now addicted to Aussie Bob” said another.

And during the Fringe, at the Prospect Town Hall venue, look for:  


The Krusty Cowboy Klub - Wednesday March 5, 8-30 pm

Sample Image

Cowboy music at its most dubious – COWBOY  music… not country and western. The Krusty Cowboy Klub is a lively show peppered with bulldust and cowshit at the Prospect Town Hall, Wednesday March 5, 8-30 pm. Wear a cowboy hat, pull your chaps on, sing and dance and make a right Greg Hunt of yourself at the Krusty Cowboy Klub. Tickets Ten Bucks at the door. Don't bring the kiddies - we'll just lock 'em in the dunny.
 The Krusty Cowboy Klub is proud to announce its Founder Members - yes, historical bullshit - and those dusty dudes are Sleepy Dawg Dawson (the Preacher) - he's half asleep half the time and half awake the rest; Buster Saddlesore (Craig Rodda) - they ain't his buttocks in his duds ... they's blisters and they's full ov pus!; Red Rash (Polly Politis) - Ahhh... hear the girlies sigh, they know the painful pleasure of having Red Rash between their thighs; Stereo Jack (Brett Sody) - a crazy cowboy with two longhorns; he can do you front and back at the SAME TIME!; and the Big Fella is Rusty Sheriff's Badge (Stuart Day) - yes, folks, he may be an A-hole but he's just a t'aint away from bein' a fadge!   We play and sing cowboy music like no cowboys you ever knowed. Come to think of it - we never really knowed any cowboys either - we just make most of it up as we go along at the Prospect Town Hall, Wednesday March 5, 8-30 pm.


 The Cat’s Pyjamas’ 'Life isn’t all beer and skiffle but it should be!'

Sample ImageThe return of the Cat’s Pyjamas in Skiffle mode. Don’t know what Skiffle is??? Neither do the Cat’s Pyjamas but they have a mighty good go at it presenting some iconic Skiffle tunes and a bewildering catalogue of gnarly and nutty tunes in a bright and lively Skiffley sort-of acoustic mode.
Here’s the blurb, its veracity is true and can be vouched for: Just before the birth of Rock Roll the water broke and that was SKIFFLE!  Eeeeurgh! Anyway...  It’s home-made; It’s a little bit untidy; It’s rowdy and a little bit of fun and it’s at the Prospect Town Hall!
The Cat’s Pyjamas is: ‘The Preacher’ Denis Surmon on vox, guitar and string bass; Jeff Algra-Rhythms on drums and noisy bits; David Rocky Rhodes on acoustic and other guitars and vox, and  Peter Martin on bass, guitar, vox, harmonicas and animal noises.


Another review:  They were a bit like a combo only they was four blokes playin' in a band and yellin'. They were a bit noisy; Granny.

ONE SHOW ONLY (for the moment) Fri Mar 7 @ 9.30pm
Tickets only $10 at the door! More fun than a leaky colostomy bag in the swimming pool.

Sheerluck fukkn Holmes and the mad scientist

“Watson, old man, get over here with your Gladstone bag of magic tricks. I have something I need you to do for me.”
Upon his arrival at Holmes' chambers at 221b Baker Street Dr Watson put his bag on a table and eyeballed Holmes expectantly.

“Watson... there is a bloke who has been farting about with this new electricity stuff and I think I should make his acquaintance if only to advise him of the futility of his pursuit. I have made an appointment for us to see him. But before we depart there is something I need you to do for me. As you know, Watson, although I possess great charm and manly vigour I am devoid of female company.... intimacy... you now. Bluntly, Watson, I am minus minge; biffer bereft; one sausage-wallet short of a CWA luncheon. It is somewhat serious, Watson – my balls are as full as Nigella’s double-D cups and they might explode if I continue to be twat-deprived. I need your help.

“I have recently learned that some men have made themselves more desirable to the secondary gender by the application of a metal bolt through the business end of their mutton dagger...”
At this Holmes presented Watson with stainless steel Prince Albert. Watson goggled with surprise.
“It’s all-right, Watson, it’s British Standard Whitworth 5/16. Now, would you be so kind as to surgically implant this device in the end of my tadger please.”
“I say, Holmes…”
“What do you say Watson? Do you not wish me to have intimate female companionship? Do you wish that I go down in history as a happy shopper; a puddle jumper; someone who’s good with puzzles? Light on my feet? Get on with it Watson and don’t spare the morphine!”
A bloody half hour later, Holmes adjusted his trousers and said : “Right-oh Watson, Now let's go to meet this nut case Nichola Tesla and see what this electricity stuff is all about.”

In Tesla's laboratory Holmes and Watson are overawed by the massive and mysterious machinery, and stand helplessly mesmerised and slackjawed.
“Now, Mr Holmes, Zis wheel is a giant electrical coil vich will begin to spin faster and faster, generating 500000 volts of static electricity zat will fill up zis  huge capacitor. Ven ze charge reaches its maximum it will jump from ze giant capacitor to ze metal electrode across ze room with a flash of simulated lightening...”
“Pigs arse it will, Watson...” whispered Holmes to his companion. “He's fukkn loony if he thinks he can get a spark out of that oversize bicycle wheel. With any luck the bloody thing will spin off its axle and kill the fukkn dago!”
“Go right ahead Nicky...” Holmes called encouragingly,   “…we are waiting.”
The wheel started spinning slowly at first then began to gather speed with a menacing hum. The air bristled.
“Holmes... I say... old man.... there appears to be a strange tension in the room. Can you feel it?”
“Of course I can, boofhead, and I’m worried that it might be me, you quack!  Did you use plenty of antiseptic when you stuck that bolt through my knob?”
“Of course Holmes... I used a pound of carbolic;  why do you ask?”
“Because the fukkn thing is beginning to tingle like crazy…”
“Now!" Shouted tesla.... “Ze capacitor is saturated... I will throw ze relay switch and send ze charge to ze electrode across ze room…!”
“EEEEIEIEIAIAIAIAIGH!” Holmes squealed horrendously as the bolt of electricity veered sharply and struck him right on the cock knob.
Holmes stood. Frozen, his hair standing out like a wire brush and his trousers ripped to shreds and smouldering.

“What… what… what... happened, Watson?”
Tesla intervened.
“Zis is amazing.... ze static electricity charge was attracted to and struck the strange metal bolt in your penieschlong.... Hmmmmm.”
“But why are my balls all swollen up so big and sticking out at 90 degrees from each other?”
“Vell... zat is verry interesting, Mr Holmes... ze charge of electricity has zoomed down your penieschlong and is now stored in your bollocks and because zey are ze same charge zey are repelling each ozzer;  ho ho... zey are stretching your ball sack like a sock mit two unfriendly Vatermelons in it….”
“Yes… it’s tearing my scrotum….. Can you do something?”
“Vell, I will reverse the charge on one of your bollocks, like zis…”
“Vell, as you can see zey are now attracted and have banged togezzer…  Hmmmm.  Zis is very interesting Mr Holmes. .... do you need to go to the loo?”
“You must be fukkn joking, you crazy Croat... why would I want to go for a piss right now?”
“Because when you make the peepee 500000 volts of static electricity will be earthed out through your penieschlong... that will be most interesting; but perhaps a little unpleasant for you. Still, I vould like to vatch ven you go peepee!”
“WATSON – Do something!!!!!!”
