Apparently, Matt Good is an asshole.
That buzz was all over the place in the late ’90s when his reputation was that of a very difficult person to get on with. So much so that bumper stickers were sold at the merch table of his concerts with the phrase “I Hear Matt Good is a Real Asshole” on them.
But it’s Friday, darlings, and this is great Friday Music. High energy, wicked delivery, and the videos are fantastic. Plus he’s Canadian. Not that all Canadians are assholes. Just some of us.
Watch Rico, and if you’re not telling people to Fuck off, fuck off, fuck off, fuck off! for the rest of the day, I haven’t done my job correctly. (Although I could only find the edited version of the video where it’s dubbed over Take off Take off Take off… but you can read lips, right?)
What’s more, these two videos, Rico and Apparitions, tell a story — you’ll notice the same character — seriously, this is from the golden age of music videos and they just don’t do them like this anymore. Happy Friday, darlings.
(with my apologies — I could NOT find an embedded version of the original video, but click the picture below)
