Ian Rubbish was a SNL character played by Fred Armisen. Punk rocker Rubbish is an angry nihilist who hates the police, but still somehow likes Maggie Thatcher (Hey Maggie Thatcher you're alright / thanks to you I sleep at night / you keep England safe / you're a very special lady). A truly funny brit rock parody that nails the accent hasn't been seen since the mighty Spinal Tap, and Armisen has a long history of music performance, being the former drummer with Trenchmouth. Armisen formally bowed out of the show this past weekend, performing as Rubbish, backed by a host of musical luminaries including J. Mascis and Kim Gordon.
Rubbish's E.P. is available for free download at his website. Featuring band members 'Derek Gash' and 'Keith Grimshaw', it's embedded in its entirety below.
