Fuckface Unstoppable

Manning Bar

Sydney, AUS

May 7, 2015

 

At Manning Bar

Not far from Cambodia’s Tonlé Sap, an enormous river / lake system, whose flow changes direction twice a year, I am heavily affected by Golden Muscle Liquor, which was shared the night before with locals at a Cold Noodle restaurant. A welcome breeze drifts up from the river, barely disturbing the heat that has encased me. The days before were spent glaming it up at Le Royal Phnom Penh and trekking through the serene, lichen-covered temples of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap and the Russian markets.

An emotional detour led me to the Genocide Museum housed in the old S-21 jail in Phnom Penh, where I had to opportunity to have lunch with a survivor (we had chicken amok curry and rice ball dessert), who was presenting his autobiography and witnessed the collective trauma that gripped the country from 1975-79.

What does that all of that have to do with Bam Margera’s incarnation as “Fuckface Unstoppable”? Nada! 

FFU is Bam’s rock’n roll vehicle, comprised of members of Guttermouth, CKY, and Antti Hulkko (aka Andy McCoy), who inspired the start of the Hollywood glam-rock scene with the Fennoscandian Hanoi Rocks. These days Andy’s on-stage demeanor is reminiscent of Germany’s comedian and jazz musician Helge Schneider.

FFU’s show consists mainly of shenanigans and cover versions, ranging from Bloodhound Gang via Turbonegro to Rolling Stones. 

FFU is a party band with no further ambitions and a party was had by the young, sparse audience. Mission achieved.
