Brother Bill new single: Welcome to the Breakdown

Brother Bill new single just being launched into the general-whatever-o-sphere. Hentertaining :)

Welcome to the Breakdown

More info and MP3 available from http://music.bcoleman.com - Brian Cowen does his utmost to save the Irish economy when someone kidnaps the Celtic Tiger.

Bill says:

The new single 'Welcome to the Breakdown' is hereby released !  What fun...

It's all about getting laid off and spending the ill-gotten-gains recording and making music.  You can buy it by clicking on the download link on the music widget you can see to the right of the screen or, if you're in ROI you can buy by texting 'music 4175' to '57501'.  Texts will cost €1.

Everyone who buys the single will get two bonus tracks.  Simply mail your receipt/pin number (depending on whether you bought by widget/sms) to adminbcolemancom and we'll send you back a download code.

As it's a somewhat recessiony kind of a tale I put together a flash video to go with the song.  It features Brian Cowen, man boobs, the invention of NAMA, a strangely Star Wars-y like Banker creature, a new Super Hero for the Times We Live In and builders arse (blink and you'll miss it).  Oh, and there's ninjas.  And a dust up - along the lines of the gunfight at the OK Corral, only the offensive weapons are hurleys and sliothars.  Those poor ninjas didn't stand a chance...

It's come out a little clunky, by virtue of the fact that I gave myself a month to figure out how to use Flash.  Not because I like putting myself under pressure or anything, it's just that's how long the free trial of Flash lasts before you have to hand over some serious wonga to Adobe for the full version.

Funk that for a game of soldiers...

Anyway, warts (and there are many, many warts) and all.  Here's the vidjo.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQPh7SBUoec
