The Angry EP

by Gold Medal Famous



In order to fund the International Month of Gold Medal Famous in March 2011 this EP is now available for a minimum of $NZ 4. Fund the album release tour of the North Island of New Zealand in March.

Some lyrics from tracks 1 and 2.

Hey babyboomer

“Hey babyboomer with your vineyard in Martinborough, And your house in Queenstown,
And your house in Auckland,
Rental properties in Dunedin,
Three car garage,
You got free university education,
Then your generation,
Passed neo-liberal legislation,
So user-pays for tertiary eduction,
Your classic hits take over the radio,
The greatest hits of the 60s, 70s, 80s and today!

…Why do you need all that property? Your speculation fucked the economy. And priced us out of the market…”

Time to take up photography

"When I’m older I’ll live on a lifestyle block, I’ll write a cookbook, have my own vineyard, and go to winery tour shows…"

March 2011 is announced as the official International Gold Medal Famous Month. There are gigs, album releases and surprise events. The Queen is said to be particularly excited. A source close to the queen allegedly quotes her as saying "I've followed them since their no-wave faze in 2008".

Gold Medal Famous apparently turned down an invite to play as the wedding band at Kate and Wills. Citing the front man, Chris Wilson: "The band WOULD NOT COMPROMISE their wish to present the gift of a T-Shirt that says Soldier from a long-term welfare family to marry unemployed woman".

There are several events planned to celebrate IGMFM. "100 Years of Rock album release tour": Friday 18th in Hamilton @ Ward Lane, Saturday 19th in Auckland @ The Dogs Bollix and Saturday 26th in Wellington @ Watusi. There is a 2 man set at Happy in Wellington on Wednesday 2nd (free entry). Plus, surprise events are expected throughout the month.

"100 Years of Rock", the ridiculously easy second album, has been condemned by Brian Tamaki of Destiny Church and also the charismatic preacher Buster Wilson, but the NZ government believes the release could lift the country out of recession and reduce government debt to zero within 100 days of its release. The Rugby World Cup preparations have been halted to allow the full economic effect to take hold.

Attend the gigs for maximum aural pleasure.
