“Where the fuck is my mic?”

Bush Days — Though I did manage to see a couple of episodes of The Chris Isaak Show while it was in production some ten-nish years ago (and it wasn’t terrible), I did so admittedly to see Gavin Rossdale play himself as a visitor that drops by Chris’ place, only to be force-fed cups of tea.

In the episode, (S2E11, which aired in April of 2002 and included a brilliant live version of “Inflatable”) Chris is stressing over an overwhelming load of press duties, including an interview at his house. While going about making improvements to his home, he discovers a 1950s era bomb shelter in his backyard and winds up getting trapped in there with his band. And in the end, who should wind up coming to the rescue?

(In the video above, though the point of the scene is that Silvertone is teasing Chris for being whipped by Yola, for one brilliant second you can see Gavin Rossdale shoot a threatening glance to Chris when we walks into the room carrying a teapot. Brilliance.)

Luckily, Gavin has done lots of cool acting projects in the time in between these incarnations of Bush, but it’s going to be great to get back to big, bold music… I’ll just keep a copy of How To Rob A Bank nearby in case I get tired or lonely…
