I would end up going to the Australian premier of this film in August 2009 and it is here I would meet Lips and Robb from Anvil
I found out Anvil had been crowdfunding to release their new album "Pounding the Pavement". I just couldn't belive its there 17th album and they have been putting out albums since 1981.
The opening band was called Void. They were okay. But I was excited to see this band BURNT OUT WRECK. I saw those guys open for Y&T in Cambridge last year so I was stoked to see them again. Except every time I hear the song "Pulling it out" its the most sexual innuendo song I have heard in 30 years since Def Leppard "Pour some Sugar on me"
At the start of the gig. Lips went into the crowd to start playing the instrumental MARCH OF THE CRABS.
This gig was full on Metal on Metal. Lips always speaks his mind on certain things in life. I mean Anvil wrote a song called "Bitch in a Box" as its all about GPS Stuff ups.
It was awe inspiring that Lips talks about THE STORY OF ANVIL and how its been 10 years since he last deliver food to schools.
During Mortha, Lipps wowed the crowd with his infamous Dildo solo when he uses a vibrating sex toy to play guitar. Man its been about 2 years since I used one of those on a chick somewhere in the North shore of Sydney. I kinda forgot the point of usage.
Anvil ended the night by performing "Metal on Metal" as well as a cover of Steppenwolf "Born to be Wild". Lips told us all back in the 70's, big shots would ask them to be a COVERS band and Lips and Robb always said FUCK NO!
