Serious acting, serious lyrics.
17 September 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I think there was this hidden love of "Pugwall" when I was at school. We would make fun of it but watch it all the same.

I would say, however, that it wasn't that "cool". Take, for example, the lyrics to the music Puigwall's 'band' put together:

"Morning to midnight (castanet syncopation) I'm thinking o- hov you Tossing & turning What can I do?"

or;

"We're all gonna have a party (guitar riff) Food and drink for everyone one (guitar riff) Laughing, jumping(?) dancing, singing (guitar riff) Every body is welcome"

or the theme song;

"Nobody tells me what to do No not me Nobody tells me what to say Can't you see"

It was great - all the songs were complete with correct, clipped pronunciation; not exactly rock & roll.

Then there was the theme music that came on whenever Pugwall's arch-enemies came hooning past on their BMX's;

"Bad boys, bad boys Bad bad boys"

Sheer late-eighties hard-core kids' TV.

But at the same time, to quote "Seinfeld" - It's grotesque. Yet I can't look away."
