seething since 2001

Category: Stung

Stung is a talented flautist, hailing originally from Dunedin on the South Island of New Zealand but now resident in the Camp Davey Compound in Tribesco. He has released two albums on Davey’s record label, DNRC, the first of which was entitled Dream of the Blue Pipe Cleaners. Rumours of his recent demise have been slightly exaggerated, although he has been involved in at least one fracas involving his seeing-eye pony which has left him permanently seething. His follow-up album on DNRC, entitled Desert Boot Nose, is due for release in 2024. Stung divides his time between composing uplifting car commercial themes and vocal coaching. Stung’s influence on Davey Dreamnation’s singing career has been noticeable and can be heard on Davey’s forthcoming EP, a collection of rare instrumentals. Stung also acts as a vocal coach and mentor for Clint Bo Dean, one of DNRC’s most troubled stars. His favourite colour is yellow and he was born in the year of the Bee.

The Police reform (while Stung seethes)

Who was it that said Nero fiddled while Rome burned? Well scrap that, Poindexter, coz The Police have decided to reform and are set to embark on a huge world tour, just in time for the 30th anniversary of Sting’s brain transplant. The tour is even set to include Australasia, and don’t write off the possibility of a new album just yet.

All of which has left our resident vocal coach and singer in his own right, Stung, suitably seething. In fact, he’s seething so hard at the moment that the protestors trying to ram the Japanese whaling ship/factory Nisshin Maru in the Antarctic have called off their attacks and are headed this way, presumably in order to make use of some of that seething fire power.

“If only the Sea Shepherd had rammed the Nisshin Maru during the filming of Matthew Barney’s Drawing Restraint 9 instead,” seethed the Kiwi pop iconoclast, whose bid to soundtrack the American artist’s epically unnecessary three hour film was obviously knocked back in favour of Bjork.

The announcement comes as a double blow for Stung, whose new album, Desert Boot Meets Nose, is due for release any year now. And after the success of Dream of the Blue Pipe Cleaners and Nothing Like the Stung, well, you get the idea: seething, seething, seething.

“Let’s hope Stung has enough willpower left in him to pick up the flute, turn on the Mac Davis and start playing “It’s Hard to be Humble”. Stranger things have happened,” commented an obviously bemused and slightly bloated Scaramouche.

“And who knows, this might just be the impetus for Stung to get back together with The Poultice,” added Maikiki, lead singer and spokesperson for The In Jokes.

Stung denies “swinging” rumours

In a sign that everything is returning to normal in the world, gifted flautist Stung has denied any involvement in group sex activities of any kind. “That’s just despicable,” spluttered Scaramouche today (Tribesco time) after being told of the allegations against his friend, producer and ghostwriter. “Stung has never ever even been invited to a swingers club. I’m not sure who’d have him.” The llama’s comments come on the eve of a major announcement from Davey Dreamnation, who has been keeping a relatively profile ever since the debacle that should have been his “Maple Lanes DP” EP. Sources closer to the now struggling artist admit that Davey’s failure to master the art of FTP has set back his career several seconds. “I think he’s planning a new album,” Scaramouche later admitted, “but I just can’t see how he’s going to top Islands In the Stream of Consciousness.”

Internet photos of Scaramouche and Pixel Mouse “storm in a teapcup” says brave-faced Stung

For the second time this week, Wellington was rocked today by a publicity earthquake as news surfaced of compromising photos featuring Davey Dreamnation’s pet llama Scaramouche and the supposed wife of Kiwi pop icon Stung.

According to Auckland-based Internet news site www.suxshooterz.co.nz, the photos, showing Scaramouche and Mouse in the most compromising of positions (including one technically impossible position known as the Photoshop clipper), surfaced only hours after Mouse and Stung returned from their honeymoon in Sao Paolo.

“Well this is just absolute nonsense,” Stung fumed today at reporters gathered outside his Rotorua studio, “so just bugger off, I’ve got an album to record.”

Meanwhile, off the coast of Majorca, Davey Dreamnation laughed at paparazzi circling his fifty foot schooner.

“Ha ha ha! What a complete fool! That Stung is really behind the eight ball. Serves him right for shafting me so severely with that “duets” fraud. All I can say is, he’d better watch his back. There’ll be a few more of these stunts over the next little while, I think you’ll find. Welcome to the information age, Stung.”

It’s official: Pixel Mouse & Stung tie the knot at “secret” Eden Park stadium gig/ceremony

After a brief but notoriously well-documented courtship, Pixel Mouse and Stung (Davey Dreamnation’s former employee and best mate, respectively) have defied public outrage by getting married at a “secret” concert organised for a couple of thousand “friends” at Eden Park, Auckland.

Speaking from their secluded hideaway in Sao Paulo (one of the largest cities in the world), Stung today confirmed that marriage vows have been exchanged and that they are truly in love.

“This is the best – not even the Police break-up comes close to this for me. Imagine being in the same room as Dave Dobbyn and then multiply it by sex – aha, I mean, sux. Then you’ll be getting kind of close to how I felt yesterday – well, today feels a thousand times better. We’re truly, medly, deeply in love. Geez, I don’t know what to say.”

When asked to respond to claims that Pixel Mouse’s recording career is a complete sham, Stung would neither confirm nor deny, claiming that “she’s just got writer’s block at the moment.”

The pair ignited tabloid speculation recently by cavorting semi-nude in a Wellington cathedral, before really putting things beyond doubt by engaging in multiple acts of public indecency at a benefit concert for monkeys formerly owned by Michael Jackson.

“It’s a disgrace,” said Dreamnation’s official spokesperson, Scaramouche, in a prepared statement this morning. “Davey is seething – I repeat, seething. He was just getting ready for the launch of his and Stung’s duets album, and had even booked in for a couple of weeks at a Swiss solarium. I can’t emphasise enough the disappointment and anger Davey is experiencing right now. And the fact that Pixel Mouse is a completely imaginary person only adds insult to injury. It’s back to the drawing board, I’m afraid. All bets are off. As far as Davey Dreamnation is concerned, Stung does not exist either. He’s just a tosser from Dunedin with more hot air than Rotorua. That’s all for now.”

Kiwi crooner announces Davey Dreamnation support slots

In a week fast becoming known for its unexpected news stories, Stung, New Zealand’s answer to Sting, has announced Davey Dreamnation as number one support act for his upcoming tour of Australasia.

Under the moniker of Stung’s “Nothing Like the Stung” Tour, Davey will play a variety of outdoor venues around Australia, in a set of dates reminiscent of his recently announced top end tour.

“Yeah, Stung is strapping it on a bit, I’ll give you that,” admitted Davey today through an interpreter, “but you’ve got to give it to the guy – he’s just like Sting!”

In other news the artist formerly known as Sting, who now goes under the slightly less alluring moniker of “Gordon”, was slightly bemused by Stung’s announcement. “I thought I kicked the shit out of that prick last year, the first time he tried to pass himself off as me. This whole “Nothing Like the Stung” bull carpet has me seething, i repeat: SEETHING. I can’t believe Davey would get caught up in this.”

Stung, however, laughs off Gordon’s threats. “Yeah, and he can ride my pony too.”

Meanwhile, when questioned by reporters about the exact nature of his relationship with Stung, Davey Dreamnation (again, through his interpreter) immediately booked a flight to Canadia, asserting that he would do whatever he damn well pleased, and that we could “all f*** off, The Screaming Jets included,” the spokesperson translated.

Former Spirit Levels bandmates could not be contacted today, and are rumoured to be in the recording studio, polishing up a drum and bass version of their first single, “Wood Chipmunk”.
