Andre Fazio : A True Testimonial
Many of you would be aware of the momentous occasion happening tomorrow; the 21st anniversary of one of Melbourne's... no... the world's greatest drum and bass combinations: Andre Fazio. Sure, he's not techinally a drum and bass combo in the way that Sly and Robbie are, or Levon Helm and Rick Danko... or Entwistle and Moon... or Lightning Bolt... but if you could clone him, you'd probably have a set of them in every recording studio and another one doing the artwork as well...
So, Happy Birthday to him. Even though his birthday is tomorrow, come and have a drink with him next Saturday at The Tote for his official birthday drinks. Truly the engine of all my musical projects, and I couldn't concieve of being in a band without him doing something... even if he is an argumentative prick who hates my singing and antics. And that time where he grew chops to take the piss out of me wasn't nice either. Or the time he slapped the peanut butter toast in my room out of my hand and it looked like I shit the bed. I could go on. But I won't. Cheers!
