Australian Simpsons themed doom rock overlords Dr. Colossus made a break for mainstream attention a couple of months back when their cromulently titled album I’m A Stupid Moron With an Ugly Face and a Big Butt and My Butt Smells and I Like to Kiss My Own Butt managed to debut in the Top 20 Aria Charts.
The album was self-released via Dr. Colossus’ own label Death Mountain and delivered what fans of stupid things had been wanting; a pastiche of downtuned riffs, rock n roll stomping grooves and lyrics ranging from Krusty the Clown’s downwards spiral (Sex Cauldron) to a 9-minute ode to Homer’s hallucinatory chilli odyssey (Space Coyote).
Now Dr. Colossus – who have successfully completed cancelling their entire national tour for the album a few times over – offer a stern warning to those heading out and about hoping to take in some night-life. You may get more than you bargained for.
“The clip is a warning” – says Dr. Colossus frontman, (and not a real doctor) Dr. Jon “If you want to hang with the band, there are a series of specific rituals you must first go through, initiations. These are all entirely secret, however the most excruciating of these is to be forced to sit and watch Dr. Colossus play a live set in its ENTIRETY.” ‘You never know where you may have to see us playing – so the safest bet for everyone is for you to all just stay home”.
