Rob, although living in LA, is a member here; we've been to a couple of games together.  Other musically oriented Demon supporters are David Bland who some may remember from both the Go!! Show and Kommotion (he also attended games with Rob and myself) and the drummer from the Huxton Creepers, Archie Law.

Bruce Woodley is a huge Demon

Had a coffee with him before the Jeelong Preliminary Final

We were both Nervous Wrecks!! :)

I can't believe that nobody has posted this song, featuring Demon tragics Scared Weird Little Guys, the late Jim Keays, Wilbur Wilde and Russell Robertson, and brilliant footage of Barassi, Smith (Norm and Shaun), the Wiz, the Ox, Neita, Allen Jakovich, Big Carl, Jacko and of course my idol, among many others.

For Demons supporters  I'm surprised no one has  said "Number of the Beast" :lol:

You must all be too young ;)

I did suggest some 6.66 from Salmon Hater. Got no love alas.

I love the Scared Weird Little Guys.

I remember walking through the MCG carpark after a Melbourne match in the 1980s. I walked past Jim Keays, who was also wearing a Demons scarf. I said "g'day Jim" or something similar. He looked at me, said nothing, looked away then kept walking. Oh well, never meet your heroes they say !! I suppose I shouldn't speak ill of the dead.

Just in case I don’t get another chance for this. For all 70’s/80’s kids:

 

Definitely bringing the Charlie Spargo vibes.

Gus said on the latest podcast that he had made a play list for his dad called sticksy 2.0 on Spotify. I have been enjoying it all week.

The songs have new meaning knowing that they have been selected by gus for his dad

That's actually a killer playlist, feels like some late night Rage on ABC back in the 80s/90s or 3am drunk at a party somewhere

It's a little known fact that the 'Can Can' song is actually the 'Galop Infernal'. 

It is literally the song of the wild party going on in hell, personally led by the devil. Written by Jacques Offenbach as a mad parody of all the snobbery of classical music and performance at the time.

It also will lift you hair off your head with a good sound system or headphones and a proper orchestra and choir going at the full speed intended. Best I can find is from 1991!

 

INFERNAL GALLOP

This ball is original

with an infernal gallop

let's all give the signal!

Long live the hellish gallop!

Let's give the signal

with an infernal gallop!

Friends, long live the ball!

La la la la la!

Wait a minute!! This sounds like rock and/or roll music!

It was, but I learned the entire drum solo when younger and the rhythm still sticks inside the head. So I play it, moderately often.

As an obsessive Bond fan, John Barry always calms me. Multiple Bond scores will very likely settle the nerves today.

The connection of what's at the end of Satan's rainbow and the cool demon at the end of the clip complete seem appropriate;

And  as the Temper Trap are huge MFC supporters a shout out to them also

 

Fader is a great track. Love it. As West Aussies, pity they're not playing Optus. I figure they're probably not a band anymore.

This one really gets me in the feels, reminds me of walking to the footy with the old man, he resplendent in Dees merch from head to toe. Love ya dad, miss you and heading along to the G, Waverley, Kardinia park and the grounds in between.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    CHANGES 2021 by The Oracle

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition th

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s
