Satire? And Some Music

I really like the song, but I’m not sure about the video. Worth watching though.

Bill ColemanBill Coleman is a Cork singer/songwriter. His new single, Welcome to the Breakdown,  is all about getting laid off and spending the ill-gotten-gains recording and making music. Worse things he could be doing, I guess. The video features “Brian Cowen, man boobs, the invention of NAMA, a strangely Star Wars-y like Banker creature, a new Super Hero for the Times We Live In and builders arse (blink and you’ll miss it). Oh, and there’s ninjas. And a dust up – along the lines of the gunfight at the OK Corral, only the offensive weapons are hurleys and sliothars. Those poor ninjas didn’t stand a chance…

While I like his new song, I was far more drawn to his other YouTube tracks. I particularly like I Want You To Know and The Pull of The Pint. For more on Bill, have a look at his blog, YouTube channel, MySpace page or just say hello to him on Twitter. For his tour dates, click here. I’m hoping to make it to his Academy gig on the 28th November.

    Really like the song, but the video…now i know it’s meant to be satirical, but doesn’t mean the (flash) animation has to absolutely godawful (and distract you from the satire). But then again, that’s just the perfectionist/artist/animator in me talking 😉 lol
