Literally just now, I watched the first episode of Karl Spain Wants to Rock. For those of you who haven’t watched RTE before, he’s a comedian/documentary maker and this brand spanking new series is about Irish tribute bands. Every week Spain and his wig wearing cohorts (Ireland Maiden, the Rubber Plants, Thunderstruck, User Illusion and Metallitia) travel around Ireland on a big fuck off bus and Biff from Saxon gives his “expert” view after they perform a gig. Each week a band gets booted off and the first episode was good fun, so if you’re the kinda person who enjoys watching an Irish soldier pretend to be Axl Rose then you should give it a go.

If you live outside of Ireland (north and south) you mightn’t be able to watch, but sure give it a wee click anyway.
