Following his memorable performance at the 1991 VFL Grand Final, another WTF? moment from Mister Anderson, this time in honour of the Tories.
Angry Anderson fronts Liberal campaign
August 18, 2010
Australian rock legend Angry Anderson has fronted the final Liberal party election advertisement in NSW before the media blackout begins at midnight on Wednesday.
In the television ad, Gary `Angry’ Anderson takes aim at Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s promise for a Parramatta-to-Epping rail line in western Sydney, saying it will never happen…
Angry’s also angry with The Greens:
Onya mate. Presumably, Angry’s own debt is now going to be somewhat lessened following his appearance in a series of Tory propaganda vids.
Angry last came to my attention when he gave evidence at a Senate inquiry about yoof gangs. See : Angry Anderson : No violence?, March 2, 2010. Then Angry expressed concern for yoof, and decried the use of weapons in their occasional street battles. Before giving testimony, Angry took the opportunity to record a song with Sydney band T.H.U.G.. Called ‘Gunnin’ 4 U’, the song recounts the adventures of a recently-released prisoner, intent on gaining bloody revenge on his tormentors. Angry’s lines bemoan the fact that his mate threw away their friendship “for some filthy whore”. The band itself features two members of ‘White Lightning’, a seminal Australian neo-Nazi rock ‘n’ roll band one of whose songs, ‘We Rule’, the band still performs live.
