Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott has been singing from the song sheets of the 1890s for quite some time. Now he just wants to take this project more literally.
The new Barbershop Quartet, called Drones Of Dissonance, comprises Tony Abbott, Eric Abetz, Cory Bernadi and George Christensen.
Asked why he formed the group, Mr Abbott said “The 1890s were the glory years for both barbershop quartets and my regressive worldview. What better way to pay tribute to a decade in which a woman’s place was in the home and being gay was illegal, than an out-of-tune, out-of-time band of homophobic men.”
With their first album set for release halfway through the election campaign to distract everyone from anything meaningful, the new group is set to be a homophobe’s wet dream.
