Wesley Gonzalez has released a suitably tongue-in-cheek new clip for single ‘Did You Get What You Paid For?’, casting himself as a floating ghost at his own funeral.
The track, which comes from recently-released LP ‘Appalling Human’ (put out via Moshi Moshi), also sees the faux-vicar reading a eulogy to the former Let’s Wrestle singer-turned-solo artist: “His musical skill was great, that is undisputed. But behind closed doors… appalling behaviour from an appalling human.”
Of the song, Wes says: “I wrote this, unsurprisingly, in a very dark moment. I tried to write a song that I would want to be played at my funeral. I thought ‘Do you all love me? Am I what you want? Did you get what you paid for?’ - was a pretty good final statement. A good mix of tragedy and comedy - I wrote the music with that in mind as well it has to be said, but it had to have personality, I can’t die boring. I wanted to go with some swag.”
