Anton Newcombe is clearly a lover and not a fighter.

Why don’t these guys just call it a day? It’s obvious some of them hate each others guts.

that's amazing. Maybe they were doing a "tribute" to their legendary on-stage brawl during that industry showcase featured in Dig!?

Do they still tour with the "Tambourine Man"?

I think the singer is the only consistent member.

Didn't these posers literally pull this same (publicity) stunt a decade ago.

That was hilarious that the 2nd "main" guy in the band, didnt actually do anything.


He did front this band, though.. The Dillirtantes

Sounds like every band Sleek ends up making a vid for!

Joel Gion. He left the current tour citing "family emergency", he clearly just needed to get the fuck out of that band.

He has a book coming out which should be a great read.

Indeed it is, great watch.
I had friends who were due to see them in Castlemaine in Victoria Thursday evening.
They got to the venue to find out about the cancellation, instead the venue had a special screening of the Talking Heads concert film that has been recently “remastered.”

They had a great night and felt well compensated.

Yes it's entertaining. I saw BJM live and Anton got mad at the band and made them start a song over. "You fucked it up!" :lol: He's a character.
