5 Sayings That Make No Sense Shared By Winchester Revival
After their original front man “stopped out of nowhere,” Brisbane rockers Winchester Revival were near the end of the group – a result that didn’t go over well with the rest of the band.
After a solid 2020 (despite the COVID interruptions) in which the group released their debut EP “Set Up” (which hit # 5 on the iTunes Rock Albums chart and recorded 30,000 streams on Spotify), Winchester Revival followed suit another EP this year entitled “The Way We Used To Rock”.
Then the proverbial wrench left them at the factory without a lead singer.
“We were a little apprehensive at first after having a great year in 2020 and achieving quite a lot as a newly formed band, until then our original front man stopped out of nowhere, left us broken and thought it was the end of ‘Winchester Revival’ says drummer Dane Hogno.
What the band didn’t realize was that the line-up change was the perfect tonic to move the band forward. Enter Jackson Allan. “We now know that Jackson was the best decision we ever made,” says bassist Josh Moore.
“He has a unique way of thinking and developing ideas that we would never have thought of before.”
Adds rhythm guitarist Jack Dylan: “[Jackson] is committed, committed and versatile; not just a fantastic singer, but tears up the guitar like only someone bravely inspired by Van Halen can. “
Winchester Revival’s latest release, ‘Reborn, Reformed, Revived’ is also the first Winchester Revival song Jackson worked on. The track continues the band’s nod towards harder rock, like their heroes before them: Led Zeppelin, AC / DC, Pearl Jam, Guns N ‘Roses and Black Sabbath.
With a national tour of the factories and regular studio visits before Christmas, the guys share a few sayings that don’t make sense that they like to use.
Rusteeze was originally known as a product for repairing old, rusty vehicles, but better known as the Disney character, LightNing McQueen’s main sponsor from the movie “Cars”.
But ‘rusteeze’ has now been translated into a meaning / proverb representing a severe hangover or extreme fatigue by Winchester Revival’s self-made urban dictionary. For example, “Oh man, I feel rusty this morning.”
2: real bouquet
This “saying” makes no sense at all; What does a bouquet have to do with authenticity? Well, put it this way: you might be a “real ostrich” about something if you really believe in something.
Or something so big happened that it was a “real bouquet”. It really doesn’t make any sense, but it’s funny how to put two random words together and make people believe they have a real meaning.
You may have heard someone say, “It wasn’t me, it was Patricia.” It’s actually a famous movie quote from the movie ‘Split’, which is about a guy with split personalities.
Anyway, Winchester Revival has since given the saying its own twist, shortening it to ‘Patricia’d’ which represents someone getting drunk and making a fool of themselves and becoming completely Patricia’d aka ‘that wasn’t me’ that was Patricia ‘.
This word may be Latin for something that went back thousands of years, but since Winchester Revival are the most Australian group of guys, they have used this word since then to represent something that is either messed up, wrong, weird, gross, not right, etc. Ruffled. . . What a word that seriously doesn’t make sense!
The average person may think of dusty as an object with a lot of dust, but in our world, dusty is a great way to describe how you feel after maybe drinking a few beers in an evening. You’ve got maybe three or four drinks in there and you’re like, ‘Oh man, I feel a little dusty’.
Perhaps this saying makes little sense; What does dust have to do with a human emotion? It’s amazing how you can translate something so simple and really meaningless and give it a whole new life with a new meaning that doesn’t make sense, but somehow makes sense and nobody questions it.
