Devin Townsend Deconstructs Badgers
Devin Townsend, the eccentric musical genius that, with the help of his coffee drinking alien companion, manages to subvert all the stereotypes of metal overlord. You see, despite his popularity and the massive amount of respect he is given – the man still doesn’t take himself all that seriously. If you were lucky enough to catch his tour for Epicloud (his most recent, excellent pop rock infused masterpiece) like I was, you may have noticed if you were paying attention while the band were setting up, that they were playing Badger, Badger, Badger over the sound system and on the video screen, accompanied with everyone’s favourite alien dancing to it.
For those not in the know this is a ten year old short video/song made before memes were the bane of my existence (crazy to think for all you youngsters raised on the internet). I remember being about 12 or 13 and watching these videos in my school IT class when I should have been doing work. Oh boy.
Devin Townsend and Dirk Verbeuren while working on the Deconstruction album recorded this delightful ode to badgers. Turn up the fun settings of your computer to 11 and enjoy yourselves!
