Party Barbarians from the distant past!

We’ll Burn This City To The Ground

You’ve loved us from afar. Maybe you’ve hugged us after a show. Maybe you’ve even seen us at the pub and we’ve tried to get you to buy us drinks with varying degrees of success.

Now it’s time to up the ante.

It’s time for Gay Paris to give back.

But you have to throw a party.

Only by a never ending party can Gay Paris exist.

Want to be part of a savage run through decadence and excess not seen since Caligula flooded the coliseum?

All you need is a space large enough to hold us and your buddies as we ruin your neighbour’s chances of having a nice, quiet weekend.

We supply the PA, amps, drums and genuinely disturbing/amazing stage show and possibly a bunch of hangovers/hangers on from whatever party we played before – that’s right, we’ll be doing this all day long. Well, at least for 10 hours or so.

Sets will take place at 1:30pm, 3pm, 4:30pm, 6pm, 7:30pm, 9pm and 10:30pm, giving us time to flee the scene of our previous travesty against decency and set up at your place. Pick a time, go on, we dare you, we’ll be in and set up in 15 minutes with the help of our road crew of miscreants, play a 20 minute set and be gone before any noise complaints can garner a response from the po po- and hey, if you’re the host, you can even influence our set list, so what do you wanna hear? The old shit? The new shit? That awesome song by the Wu-Tang Clan? You got it, good buddy.

Hell, theme your parties, we’ll have so many costume changes that Lady Gaga will look like Slim Pickins (yeah, I’m callin’ him out – buy some more clothes, dude).

As alluded to before, we’ll have a party bus piloted by our good buddy, Crisis The Corncob Clown taking anyone debauched enough to do this more than once in a day from one location to the next. If you have the stamina, we provide the driver. He will get a touch weird once the sun goes down though, so be warned.

House fires all round. Get at us.

Posted in devil, Drunk, Southern Horror, Swamp Rock, Sydney, sydney band, Tour, WH with tags , , , , on 25/10/2011 by gayparis

That’s right, you sweet bastards, SOBs, dirty ladies, goths (and reformed goths), men of low moral character, possible werewolves, educated dandies, high functioning alcoholics, smut lovers, pirates, swingers, sexy librarians, clergymen, fashion conscious punks, NBA players, tiger trainers, stoned botanists, rap dudes, history buffs and everyone else, we’re playing Black Cherry NYE at the Factory Theater in Marrickville.
Bring us party favours and booze money. We’ll provide an unrelenting tide of sleaze and rock n’ roll.

Party Like It's 2999!


Totally Gay Dammit Tour

Posted in Gay Paris, gig, god, Southern Horror, Swamp Rock, Sydney, sydney band, Tour with tags , , on 13/10/2011 by gayparis

Holy Sex Fuck!

It’s been a big year for Gay Paris and their buddies, Totally Unicorn and God God Dammit Dammit.
Having each released a record this year, this triumvirate of venue wrecking, soul searing, party exploding bands has toured the hell out of the country, leaving pretty much no stone unturned in their quest to get naked (and get the fans to do likewise), get funky, get drunk and get the hell out of town before there are any possible legal repercussions.

As long time proponents of having great times while playing amazing music with the best dudes, these twenty men of varying size, colour and shape have decided to team up and run a savage burn down the East Coast of Australia, bringing together a mash of sounds that range from the best in Magical Animal Hardcore to Swamp Stompin’ rock and the kind of P-Funk that has to be prefixed by ‘punk’.

To make sure that everyone remembers this tour after it blows over, these fine gents will be toting the Totally Gay Dammit EP everywhere they go, featuring a selection of originals and cover songs by these three groups – get ready for some surprises, people, for as you may have come to expect, this is a group of musicians who make very strange choices.

Bearded Immortals Photo Diary – part 4

It’s over. We hit Melbourne, Hobart, Toowoomba, Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Wollongong and Adelaide and bestowed immortality on all bearded people – and in 9 months or so, there will likely be a rash of bearded babies being born too. Treat them well, ye harlots.

Bearded Immortals Photo Diary – part 3

So this week took us to Melbourne (complete with hot sluts and arrogant jerks) and Hobart (no goths, I’m afraid).
I managed to lose my trousers and green bandanna and Slim proved once again that he is terrible at freestyling.
Enjoy these photos to the point of orgasm, friends. Just Adelaide left.
See you in hell.

Sorry, dumb dumbs, I haven’t gotten around to writing up a proper tour diary for the QLD and NSW legs of this little tour, but hopefully these low quality photographs will keep you happy until I do.
