Blue’s day as Billy Joe Armstrong comes around.

Blue Balls send Reds a Warning by Signing Billy Joe Armstrong!

Blue Ball management were apparently elated with Dead Poet Society’s signing of central midfielder/rhythm guitarist, Billy Joe Armstrong. The Green Day front man, known for pushing the boundary of sportsmanship, has been seen as a somewhat risky move, but this was of no concern to those in charge.

“He’s no idiot, no basket case,” remarked one senior coach. “He’s a quality player, fast, edgy and adopts a long view of the game”.

Armstrong was also quick to dismiss those ready to write him off as a freeloader and trouble maker.

“Those that think I’ll be hitching a ride off of my teammates during a game are a minority and either way, they are stuck with me. While I hope to have the time of my life, this ain’t no holiday for me either! I’m here to win”

The Blue Balls will announce their next signing early in 2016.

DBCP Bonus Mini Episode – Dead Poet Society Rock and Goal

The guys from Dead Poet Society were a blast to speak to and they really took the Rock and Goal segment seriously. Their banter and debate over who should be selected was a joy to watch and was equally entertaining as it was insightful. The main show had an edited version of this discussion to keep the main show length down – a mini show of that full length discussion can be heard right here in this bonus short episode.

Alive and kicking! – Dead Poet Society

People who know me are acutely aware I like a good, heavy riff. They also know I love harmonised vocals and a well thought out melody. They will also know I am a fan of production values and recordings that contain unique layers and sounds. Boston band, Dead Poet Society, ticks all of these boxes and then some. In fact, their 2015 EP AXIOM was one of my favourite pick-ups of the year! These guys are going places….seizing the day, if you will (ok, no more DPS movie references…)

This group have a collective unity and drive that is rarely seen – to the point that they actually live together! Each member contributes to all aspects of the band – they weren’t sure how to record and mix their music, so they learnt. They weren’t able to make their own top quality film clips, so they learnt. What these guys put their minds to, they achieve and it and their growing success is a true testament to the benefits of hard work and commitment. Mr Keating would be proud! (Oops!)
