"Heres my blurb ... its from Gremlins 2! or if thats too whack ... My name's Gill. I recorded these songs in my room. I live in Melbourne. As well as Dirtbag I play in the bands Beaches and Spider Vomit. I have a dog called What a Mess who bites all my friends. All my friends are in rad bands. The weather in Melbourne is shit for most of the year.

Grandpa Fred: [interviewing Dirtbag Gremlin] Creature what is it that you want? 
Dirtbag Gremlin: Fred, what we want is, I think, what everyone wants, and what you and your viewers have: civilization. 
Grandpa Fred: Yes, but what sort of civilization are you speaking of?
Dirtbag Gremlin: The niceties, Fred. The fine points: diplomacy, compassion, standards, manners, tradition... that's what we're reaching toward. Oh, we may stumble along the way, but civilization, yes. The Geneva Convention, chamber music, Susan Sontag. Everything your society has worked so hard to accomplish over the centuries, that's what we aspire to; we want to be civilized.
[a Gremlin with a beanie cap acts goofy next to Brain]
Dirtbag Gremlin: You take a look at this fellow here.
[Dirtbag shoots the Gremlin in the head. The Gremlins in the bar laugh. Grandpa Fred and Kujitsu leave]

Dirtbag Gremlin: Now, was that civilized? No, clearly not. Fun, but in no sense civilized. Now, bear in mind, none of us has been in New York before. There are the Broadway shows - we'll have to find out how to get tickets. There's also a lot of street crime, but I believe we can watch that for free. We want the essentials. Dinettes. Complete bedroom groups. Convenient credit, even though we've been turned down in the past.

is that ok?"

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, Dirtbag.
