When you hear the name Kevin Bloody Wilson, no explanation is needed.

The musical funnyman, known for being crude and rude, will bring his Almost Awesome tour to the South West.

Hailing from Kalgoorlie, Wilson’s crazy career began simply by changing the lyrics to other people’s songs to suit his risque taste.

Before he knew it, he had recorded these dirty ditties and began touring his ‘uniquely Australian’ music.

His next album will be a Christmas release with tracks like Jingle Bells and It’s Starting To Look A Lot Like Christmas getting the Bloody Wilson treatment.

Wilson gave the Mail a preview of some of the tracks, however, as hilarious as the lyrics were, they cannot be printed.

Wilson said he never set out to be controversial, it was just who he was and the world had gone mad with political correctness.

“Billy Connolly says political correctness is the language of cowards and he is right,” he said.

“It smothers free speech, I’ve just never subscribed to it – people can’t just call it as they see it these days.

“Political correctness is a contradiction in itself, because if it is political, it probably is not correct.”

While he said it wasn’t on purpose, he admitted he loved riling people up.

“I do think ‘who is this going to upset’, then I go ‘oh good’ and keep writing,” he said.

“It is worth noting that I’m not a lone voice in the wilderness when it comes to this.

“When I look out to the crowd I see people nodding their heads along with me.”

With 18 albums under his belt and new tracks in the works, Wilson told the Mail no show was ever the same.

“I never have a plan, if I did, I guarantee it wouldn’t go according to it anyway,” he said.

“The biggest problem is always what to leave out of the show but the favourites like DILLIGAF will be in there.”

He said loved making a ‘country run’ to regional areas.

“As wonderful as the Crown Casino is and the London Palladium, it is equally important to play the bush –  heading to the regions reminds you what you are doing it for,” he said.

Kevin Bloody Wilson will perform at Nannup Hotel on March 22 and Dunsborough Tavern on March 23.
