Davey G likes the lotion
He's in the same vein as the late Wesley Willis, but without all the mental/physical health problems.
At most of his shows, Davey G has a segment where he plays a song about rubbing lotion on himself. In the middle of it, he takes of his shirt, whips out a bottle of lotion, hops down into the audience and dumps it on himself.
After working up a good lather, Davey G jumps back up on stage to finish the song. Occasionally, he'll follow it up with a tune about taking off his pants, too.
You can only imagine where it goes from there. (Hint: He takes off his pants.) ...
"It usually gets a strange reaction," said Davey, who's real name is David Cookson. "This was an idea that popped into my head, and I didn't question it."
In the beginning, Davey G used fancy lotions. After a few years of spending $10 a pop, he discovered a mixture of water and Gold Bond worked best.
"It spews a lot better, and looks more shocking," he said. "It's more violent. It's more like a volcano effect."
