Kevin Bloody Wilson has been described as one of the funniest and most original singer/songwriters of our generation - and is regarded as Australia¹s favourite larrikin.
Wednesday 26th April - Nambour Civic Centre
His songs are as unique as the man himself, with an insight and singalong quality that appeals to all ages and races. They completely cross international boundaries and cultural backgrounds. You¹re bound to recognise either yourself or someone you know in a Kevin Bloody Wilson song. His songs are not written with saccharin-sweetened ink and they sound as they are meant to sound. His humour is as hard and dry as his outback heritage. This unique humour was a proven hit with such avid listeners as the late Kerry Packer to tennis stars Lleyton Hewitt and Pat Rafter.
The Kevin Bloody Wilson story started in his hometown of Kalgoorlie with Kev simply performing self-penned compositions for his mates and buddies in bar rooms, pool halls and pubs. In just a few short years, and largely by word of mouth, Kev now plays to sell-out concert venues worldwide. His bar stool philosophies, humour and values have translated instantly and readily from those early outback beginnings to the world¹s most prestigious venues, including Las Vegas and the London Palladium, and have earned him hundreds of thousands of loyal fans.
Such has been the phenomenal success of Australia¹s outback outlaw, Kevin Bloody Wilson, and his unbelievable popularity, it has propelled him from the outback to international cult status. And yet Kevin Bloody Wilson still writes all his own songs, still doesn¹t own a necktie and remains as down-to-earth and as irreverent now as he was in the beginning.
Kevin Bloody Wilson has built up an enormous cult following simply by word of mouth - friends telling friends.
As well as a rigorous travelling schedule Kevin Bloody Wilson has always surfed the cutting edge of technology and now owns a complete commercial recording studio complex. He is also considered an internet pioneer having had a web presence since 1993, the first Australian artist to do so. His internet radio station, kevfm.com, is also the world¹s first 24x7 adult comedy radio station attracting in excess of 450,000 hits per week worldwide.
Furtune favours the bold.....and the risk paid off. World tours, album sales and critical acclaim led to Kevin Bloody Wilson becoming a true Australian icon. For a man who is passionate about the bush, the country and its people, surely there is no greater accolade?
It¹s hard to believe it¹s been 20 years since Kevin Bloody Wilson emerged from his former life as a Kalgoorlie electrician to become the comedian whose cassettes every school kid loved to listen to behind their parents backs. The funny thing is, the parents often had their own copy playing at home while the kids were away!! Kev has always managed to make people laugh, really laugh, the sort of laugh that comes when you know you shouldn¹t be laughing but you just can¹t help it.
Kev¹s brand of uniquely Australian humour has made him an absolute f*****¹ legend both in Australia and overseas, and 3-million album sales and thousands of live shows later, it¹s time to celebrate and reflect on Kev¹s incredible body of work with the release of Kevin Bloody Wilson¹s new double CD ³20 Years Of Kev².
Those who are easily offended will make it approximately seventeen seconds into the opening track ³I Gave Up Wanking²before they have a coronary. From then on you can expect to be laughing out loud all the way through two decades of hits, including ³Manuel The Bandito², ³Grandad¹s Got A Bone²and the crowd favourite ³Hey Santa Claus²to name but a few.
There is a least one hit from each of Kev¹s 13 albums on the 1st disc, reminding the listener just how on-the-mark Kev¹s humour has been for the last two decades.
The 2nd disc contains 10 live tracks including ³You Can¹t Say **** In Canada², ³DILLIGAF², ³The Browneye Medley², and arguably the most popular song Kevin Bloody Wilson has released to date, ³Livin¹ Next Door To Alan². After all of that you may well need to lie down and hold your stomach for a while, but wait, there¹s more......
The bonus track on ³20 Years Of Kev² is a rousing rendition of ³Rootin¹ In The Back Of The Ute² performed by Dave Gleeson and The Stilsons. Dave Gleeson says he instantly became a Kevin Bloody Wilson fan the first time he heard ³Hey Santa Claus². ³I had all the Kev albums, then years later when I had my own band, The Screaming Jets, and having been a big Kevin Bloody Wilson fan for years, I had no qualms about writing a song which included a breakdown that went ³You Fat Rich *****².
