#7: Matt Banham (Part 2)
A few days after this was filmed, Matt shaved his head. He planned to do it, saying it was the third last thing on his bucket list. We didn't ask what the remaining two items were, but assume them to be "fame" and "fortune". Both of which are fairly subjective and unscalable. As in, maybe Mr Banham has achieved both already. He can't walk down the high street in Marrickville or Rundle Mall in Adelaide without receiving at least a dozen high fives from people that "would recognise that strut and wink anywhere", and his impressive collection of Simpsons memorabilia and other modern bric and brac (ie. those Beverly Hills 90210 curtains) are surely valuable enough to knock over even the most crowned antique rodeo champions.
But who cares about those measurable entities. Matt doesn't. He's professing love and converting miles into kilometres. Two tasks of equal difficulty and requiring his full attention. Buckets and lists have to wait sometimes.
This song is called Guitar Song. Banham plays a guitar on this one. Watch the one where he doesn't play a guitar here. And hassle him via any Online Portal (Tumblr, Twitter, www) to hurry up and finish his new solo LP and/or his much-chatted-about duet love album with SPOD.
