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.

Bearded Immortals – Photos week 1

Okay, you sweet bastards, I’m not getting much time for internet porn and writing pointless weird fiction these days, thanks to The The Bearded Immortals Tour. So, to make things easy on myself and maybe get time to quickly jerk off and scribble some notes about shit gnomes and moth people, I’ll be doing a weekly two part blog update. You should get the photo gallery first (which is probably just us hanging out doing nothing) and the next day you’ll get my thoughts on the whole fucking situation (hopefully including the fucking).

Bearded Immortals Tour

A life of good times, forever.

Gay Paris East Coast Tour, Winter 2011

“So what if The Beards are going to get one hundred beardless fools to gather their dignity and grow some goddamn facial hair?
It’s our goal to ensure that every bearded man (and anyone that will sleep with a bearded man) becomes immortal!”

That’s right, y’all, Gay Paris’ front man, WH has lost his mind again – and you know what that means: the kings of shack rockin’, swamp stompin’, heavy as the devil good times are back on the road.

With the wild (and let’s face it, that isn’t a word that Gay Paris throw around lightly) successes of this years previous tours, Taking The Throne and 4 Drink Minimum, the boys have indeed proved that not only have they brought ugly back, they’ve made it sexy.
With the addition of a fourth beard via the keen sighted man known only as Six Guns Simpson behind the kit, the stars have finally aligned in some obscure fashion that WH swears will allow all bearded men a lifetime of great times – forever.

Currently riding high on the release of their third single ‘The Blacktooth Supper Club’ from debut album, The Skeleton’s Problematic Granddaughter, Gay Paris dares anyone to deny the dirt crusted majesty of their live show – so come along, even if you hate the greatest band ever to crawl out of the mud and beg you for change while feeling you up and (probably) winning your heart in the process.

The unholy princes of swamp rocking shack stomp return to Adelaide


That’s right, chums…
We head back down to Adelaide on December 17 to shake it out with The Beards at Jive and then rock The Crown & Anchor with Grenadiers on the 18th
Following that, we have a little business to sort out with one Ol’ Dirty Bastard.

OK, for those who don’t know (and you damn well should by now), we have a month long ‘residency’ of sorts at the Supper Club on Oxford Street in Sydneyoh, you droll bastards</em>, Gay Paris, you are thinking, what a way to out yourselves! But what we’d really like is for you to climb into the closet with us – it’s full of a hell load of wonderful shit!
Wonder shit? Sounds like something out of a China Miéville novel – but enough of that (for now).

Here is the complete list of what will happen each and every night – OK, I don’t really know who the Djs are yet and if that is important, check back in a bit, or stay home and watch old Kung-fu flicks in your underpants, drinking orange drink and rotting your teeth. What a life!

FRIDAY OCTOBER 8 – PARISIAN SPRING BREAK!

BANDS

Gay Paris It’s us, so trust it.
The Beards That’s right, if their drummer’s arse is healed and they aren’t scared off by our hirsute dominance, we’re teaming up with these gentle giants of the Beard-folk scene.
Brothers Grim Considering that they’re so damn attractive, I don’t see why they’d have the blues, they probably get more ass than rap guys.
Contraban Hot to def , so young, so fresh, get your glam with a bang!

ARTISTS

Mitzi McKenzie-King I call her Mitzapooh, she calls me Lukey-doo.
Mikey Hamer Dude did our film clip and photos for the record, so you know he is money – plus he is about 6’ 9” and has flaming red locks that would make a Scottish hero of folkloric legend weep into his whiskey and haggis in pure envy.
Rhonda Quinane Trust me, I live with her and the house is so full of art that I’m becoming more cultured by the nanosecond, or it could be this bottle of Merlot (yes, Merlot, you fucking wine snobs).
Paul Tooth This guy? Designed our new merch and has the smoothest game this side of Snoop Dogg circa 1993.
Craig Slater

DJ SETS BY MEDIA PERSONALITY AND FAMOUS STAND UP COMIC, ANDREW P STREET

FRIDAY OCTOBER 15 – SALOON DOOM BAR BRAWL!

BANDS

Gay Paris No, I don’t get sick of typing that

FRIDAY OCTOBER 22 – LADIES NIGHT!

BANDS

Gay Paris while most get better with age, we started out fantastic and have now transcended mortal comprehension. By this point, it will be religious.
The Rumjacks think they can drink us under the table but the real point of interest is going to be what happens once we’re all under that rotten, beer soaked trestle.
Betty Airs This is a bonafide super group consisting of dudes who have been in Run! Hide! And Gerling.
Mother &Son Two dudes doing the job of a whole band – yeah, it normally only works in hip hop, but this is dem real razor blade blues.

ARTISTS

Lisa Bowen
Anastasia Freeman
Anni Linklater
Sarah Gleeson

DJ SETS BY THE GOOD FOLK WHO BRING YOU TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT

FRIDAY OCTOBER 29 – HALLOWEEN THRILLER!

BANDS

Gay Paris
time for the wolf dance, people, cuz we’re bringing him with us to this show
Hell City Glamours yeah, they’re way too big to be in a supporting role but then they lost the dance off. Suck it. Oh and they’re playing new songs.
The Smokestack Orchestra down to the nitty gritty, these guys have supported Clutch and nearly got us drowned, so you know it all good.
The Watt Riot these sweet bastards don’t play nearly enough shows, so we’ve got it in blood that they will show up.

ARTISTS

Steven Nuttall
Alice Amsel – She’s probably a fox queen too.
Richard Gurney
Melita Wrathall
Jay Tansley
Paul Tooth – It’s that guy again!
Leigh Rigozzi
