Next came the single and hilarious video for ‘I Wanna Be Your Girlfriend’ which was an instant hit online. In the video, Laura is caught in a love triangle, which ends in her triumphantly bedding her man AND Freddie Mercury – at the same time! On the MySpace video charts, Laura triumphantly kicked Justin Beiber’s a** to take the #1 spot, a position that she was able to hold for an entire week.

You never know what to expect at an Eels concert. One year it’s vocoders and synthesizers and the next it’s gritty garage rock. None of this is designed for the sake of versatility so much as it is answering the deep-rooted creative needs of E.
E has always been fascinated with off kilter arrangements, slightly left-of-centre instrumentation and an aesthetic that’s always sounded like it spent time locked in a box of medicated toys. Maybe it’s the simple, slightly rumpled grey suit that E wears, as if he’s been coaxed out of mourning in the shadows of some lonely, book filled house.
Eels brand new album ‘End Times’ is his most revealing, autobiographical work to date. With its stark arrangements and glimpses of social disintegration, “End Times is easily one of Eels’ finest achievements.” – Alternative Press
With so many different personas surrounding E it’s about time we were treated to a good old fashioned Eels rock show. Back to basics, hearing all our Eels favourites with distorted guitar, pounding drums and the raucous applause of satisfied fans. Eels will bring the rock to Australia in July.
