The Rhymer From Ryde

Barbie Town

from the Home Brew Vol 1 “Light” album.

THE RHYMER FROM RYDE is back on the airwaves with the 2nd single from his highly acclaimed Double CD set Home Brew. The track Barbie Town takes a satirical jab at typical suburban stereotypes when a new range of “Aussie” Barbie Dolls go to war with one another over bragging rights as to who is the best. After being nominated for “CD of the Year” at the 2012 Bush Laureate Awards, Home Brew continues to produce award-winning singles for the “Rhymer” and Barbie Town is no different, having won the “Original Section” of the Royal Brisbane Show competition in August 2011. The poem also won the “Bobby Miller Memorial Award” at the same competition for “Best Overall Comedy Poem”. Home Brew is a major work which showcases both sides of his remarkable talent. Vol 1 “Light” features all the comedy pieces that have become crowd favourites at his live shows while Vol 2 “Full Strength” takes a slightly more serious look at the Australian ‘ethos’.
