I'd wager Scod from Tripod nowadays has a monopoly on the bespectacled skinny Australian comedian with a guitar market.

I have a copy of King of the Road. I'd agree that the album's a bit flat, which is a shame as when I saw the show live it was very funny. The reason it sold so badly is because they don't seem to have promoted it at all. If Judith hadn't mentioned it on Martin/Molloy I'd never have known about. Afterwards I spent ages trying to track it down and it took months to find it. Poor distribution, poor promotion: the enemy of any release.

Well if Judith was right that might be true! Do you have a copy kim? Does anybody else? There wasn't much promotion I guess. She did go on Bert, I remember actually seeing her on Bert promoting it but I guess she didn't get on anywhere else. The copy I saw had been sitting in the CD shop for a long time when I finally decided to get the thing. I'll have to listen to it again but it didn't really fly. I blame Hessie's band a bit which might sound odd but it didn't seem to help. Maybe the recording and where they recorded it was too flat too.

On the subject of Tony he's made it to the nine MSN website! How did that happen? Was he on a nine show or something? http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=67876

Well spotted!
Great article aside from:

*humph*
Why is it so hard to get Mick's name right?!

I really don't know. Then again, I had a neighbour a few years who referred to hating 'That Martin Molloy guy'.

Good find on the article!

LOL 13 years on and the Vizard jabs keep on comin !! Maybe he shoulda called his movie 'BIG Eggs' instead of Bad ?

I like this tho..
Martin recently started work on a new film BoyTown, written by comedian Mick Molloy, in which he played a guy making a documentary about a band.
Yay !! Sounds like he'll actually have a somewhat substantial role... and a bit in the Spinal Tap vein ??

Tony is also 2nd Unit director of Boytown, so he may not be in it as much as we'd all like

Or as he says on the Bad Eggs commentary..

"Eric Von Stroyheim's" 2nd Unit Directing...

LOL well anything more than 2.1 microseconds of screentime and the phrase 'This magnificent CASH bounty" and I'll be as happy as Phil Brady in a Tuxedo...
