Aussie musician Geoff ‘Tangletongue’ Mack‘s best-known achievement is by far the song ‘I’ve Been Everywhere’ – 94 tongue-twisting local place names delivered at sick speed.
Let’s say it together now:
Tullamore, Seymour, Lismore, Mooloolaba, Nambour, Maroochydore, Kilmore, Murwillumbah, Birdsville, Emmaville, Wallaville, Cunnamulla, Condamine, Strathpine, Proserpine, Ulladulla, Darwin, Gin Gin, Deniliquin, Muckadilla, Wallumbilla, Boggabilla, Kumbarilla Moree, Taree, Jerilderie, Bambaroo, Toowoomba, Gunnedah, Caringbah, Woolloomooloo, Dalveen, Tamborine, Engadine, Jindabyne, Lithgow, Casino, Brigalow, Narromine, Megalong, Wyong, Tuggeranong, Wanganella, Morella, Augathella, Brindabella, Wollongong, Geelong, Kurrajong, Mullumbimby, Mittagong, Molong, Grong Grong, Goondiwindi, Yarra Yarra, Boroondara, Wallangarra, Turramurra, Boggabri, Gundagai, Narrabri, Tibooburra, Gulgong, Adelong, Billabong, Cabramatta, Parramatta, Wangaratta, Coolangatta, Ettalong, Dandenong, Woodenbong, Ballarat, Canberra, Milperra, Unanderra, Captains Flat, Cloncurry, River Murray, Kurri Kurri, Girraween, Terrigal, Stockinbingal, Collaroy, Narrabeen, Bendigo, Dorrigo, Bangalow, Indooroopilly, Kirribilli, Yeerongpilly, Wollondilly.
Sucks for him, then, that’s he’s been gazumped by Reggie Watts – American musician, singer, beatboxer, actor, keyboardist, comedian and current leader of the house band for The Late Late Show With James Corden – who has dropped a marathon track that name checks more than 600 of Australia’s weirdest town names.
That’s a *lot* of places, so it makes sense that the full set – which legend Watts creates using only his voice, a keyboard, and a looping machine – has a runtime of 21 FUCKING HOURS.
That’s a solid show of stamina and saliva production so props to you, Reg, for pulling it off.
Here’s a preview:
It’s Virgin Mobile‘s way of flagging its new offer ONE B1G GIG – a bonus gigabyte of data for all existing and new Postpaid1 customers every month they listen to streaming service Guvera until 30 April 30,2016, to help quell that vomitous feeling of listening to music on the go and knowing how much of your data it’s chewing up.
If you have 21 hours up your sleeve, you should listen to Reggie’s Aussie anthem in full right HERE from October 20 . You should also get a job as a matter of priority.
