#7: Matt Banham (Part 1)
He's not a comedian so you can wipe that bloody smirk off your ugly dial right now. And reworking Robyn's euphoric classic, Call Your Girlfriend, with his untuned larynx and scruffy cuteness isn't an attempt at viral stardom or a snippet from his Hey Hey It's Saturday audition real. No funny business here mate/s. Just a gent perfectly styled in his 4:30pm-on-a-Friday business attire, ready to get a little bit wet under both whiskers at the local karaoke bar. The Tooheys and overly-emotional kind of spot, not the semi-professional Reach For The Stars uninviting watering hole where the Regulars have Their Song and nobody takes kindly to people "messing about with the (Bon Jovi) classics".
And there's no messing about here. Just Matt "Mr 2012" Banham dancing around in his apartment, emotionally choking out every last gram of pop heartache. "It's just an amazing song". And he's deadly serious.
PS: see Matt do this one TONIGHT at our big Xmasroids party. That's the last time we'll mention it. Probably.
