Time for some comedy.
Kevin Bloody Wilson is an Australian comedy singer and songwriter who is best know for bawdy songs with a lot of swearing. He started performing in the 1970s and, in 1984, he recorded his 1st album which he distributed on audio cassette at gigs and through mail order. He is one of Australia's most successful comedians, without being played on TV or radio, due the explicit nature of his lyrics.
Living Next Door to Alan was originally released on the 1985 album Kev’s Back (The Return of the Yobbo). It is a parody of the song Living Next Door to Alice, original recorded by New World though the version by Smokie is better known. It tells the story of a family of Australian Aborigines who move in next to millionaire, sponsor of the first non-American yacht to win the America’s Cup, and later criminal, Alan Bond. The song is considered racist by it’s critics because of it’s use of racial stereotypes of indigenous Australians but the real butt of the joke is Bond. Non-Australians should also be aware that the Leyland Brothers mentioned in the song are Mike and Mal Leyland who are best known for their TV nature and adventure series Ask the Leyland Brothers whose theme song was being parodied for that line of the song. This clip is from the 30 Years of Kev Kulcha DVD.
