Brent Amaker & The Rodeo – Howdy Do

Oh dear God. Comedy and Country Music can be good bedfellows as fans of the hilarious Otis Lee Crenshaw (Rich Hall) and Wilson Dixon (Jess Griffin) will testify. Even throw away gags like Billy Connolly’s D.I.V.O.R.C.E. can raise a titter but this is just fucking ridiculous. Basically this is a paint-by-numbers country band playing paint-by-numbers Johnny Cash style country rhythms and some daft bastard singing ‘funny’ lyrics over the top of them in a bad paint-by-numbers Johnny Cash-lite manner. I wouldn’t mind so much if they were funny but they’re not.

 

I’m the man who writes the country hits

I couldn’t give a shit

I’m the man who makes your panties wet

So show me your tits

I’m the man who writes the country hits.

 

Bloody hilarious hey? Or how about this little gem?

 

Conversation’s not for me

Two is strictly made for tea

And I don’t need no company

Because tea is not made by me

 

“One more time?” he asks. No, I don’t think so somehow. I honestly haven’t heard anything this amateurish in a long, long time and I can’t be bothered to waste anymore time talking about it. Avoid this like the plague.
