If you haven’t seen King Parrot‘s music videos for ‘Dead End’ and ‘Shit On The Liver’ yet, you really need to get around to that soon, but take your time, but do it now! If you have seen those videos, or if you’ve seen the matter concerning the soap, you’d know the hilarious performance of bassist and inbetween song shit-talker Slatts. But now Mr. Slattery is playing a new role…

Meet the Metal Detective, Bob Kratzenjammer. Death Kill bassist. P.I. Always metal.

Before King Parrot hit the US/Canada once again for a tour, Slatts played the main role in the debut episode of Bob Kratzenjammer – Metal Detective, investigating a bass amp that was stolen from a band after their gig in Melbourne. It’s not confirmed if there will be more episodes of this in the near future, but it’s been quoted that the director wants to turn this into something more, so a share would be appreciated.
