A David Brent album could soon be ringing in your ears as Ricky Gervais receives a stack of offers to make a Brent album. Since releasing various songs online as part of his Learn Guitar with David Brent series, Ricky has seen offers flying in from around the globe to make a David Brent album. Brent has a catalogue of song already, with titles like ‘Life on the Road’, ‘Ooh La La’, ‘Spaceman Came Down’, ‘Free Love Freeway’, ‘Ain’t No Trouble’ and his latest tutorial out today via Ricky’s YouTube channel, ‘Slough’.
Ricky says;“I can’t believe I’m now getting ridiculous offers from major record deals all over the world for a David Brent album. Where were these people when I was trying to be a real popster? And starving? haha”
The Learn Guitar with David Brent series, which is housed on Gervais YouTube Channel (www.youtube/rickygervais.com), has received a string of YouTube cover versions and fan sites such as http://gervaisfanart.blogspot.co.uk/ @GervaisFanArt http://www.equalitystreet.info/
@EqualityStreet. In the words of the great Brentmeister General himself, it is “literally going down like hot cakes so thank you”
In his latest instalment ‘Slough’, out today, Brent also toys with the idea of reforming a band. He calls on his pupils to get in touch if they want to fill the “big shoes” of his former band mates Reggie Mental, Flange Warrior and Mammogram from Brent’s band Foregone Conclusion.
Learn Guitar with David Brent has helped Gervais’ YouTube Channel clock up over 18 million views www.youtube/rickygervais.com.
“It’s been so much fun bringing back David Brent and have him philosophise on Youtube, and spend all his hard earned repping money on still trying to become a pop star. It’s funny and sadly true of today’s x factor culture.”
