West Thebarton Brothel Party - Glenn McGrath

I was wondering why new Adelaide seven piece West Thebarton Brothel Party released a single called 'Glenn McGrath', in which the chorus shouts 'Don't F--k with my wife'? After a little research, I found out that Glenn 'Pigeon' McGrath (Aussie fast bowler) and a West Indian cricket player Ramnaresh Sarwan had a verbal clash on the pitch back in 03'. It got pretty heated with the Australian telling Sarwan "If you ever f---ing mention my wife again, I will f---ing rip your f---ing throat out." Nice sportsmanship Pigeon. Now if the song was written about that incident, the band have chosen a very random event in sports history and turned it into a raucously good song. WTBP have already supported the likes of Wavves (USA), Courtney Barnett, Velociraptor, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and Bad//Dreems. And next month they will be supporting one of my favourite US bands Cloud Nothings at Adelaide UniBar on Tuesday Dec 9. The new single ‘Glenn McGrath’ is from their forthcoming self-titled EP, to be released in 2015 through the legends at Mirador Records. Stay tuned...
