AUDIO: Stag’s “Midtown Sizzler”


When was the last time you’ve been to a Sizzler restaurant? When was the last time you visited the midtown Sizzler? Do you even have a Sizzler near you, or even a midtown? Maybe this song has nothing to do with either but Seattle’s Stag want to prove something to you with their track, grab a slice of Texas toast or don’t even bother to bring a fork. This is “Midtown Sizzler” and perhaps it is here for you to be satisfied in your own way. The full album will be out on August 4th,

Apologies for non-activity for a month

I didn’t realize it had been a month since I last posted something. There were times when I posted 16 things in a day, be it news items or a day when I was adventurous and did 20 to 25 album reviews.

There are a number of reasons why the activity came to a grinding halt but the website remains and will. Perhaps the non-activity is a sign of change to come on the website, but we’ll see about that. The lack of activity was due to personal manners to, I’ll be honest, boredom. However, perhaps the time away was a good chance to regroup and see what happens next.

For those who make regular visits and were wondering “where the hell is John?”, how come you didn’t send me an e-mail? HUH? J/K, I’m very much here but we’ll see how things go from this point on.

COVERED: Velvet Underground vs. John Németh


The secret Andy Warhol banana has been honored again with a new homage courtesy of blues artist John Németh. Of course, The Velvet Underground & Nico album honored its 50th anniversary this year and Németh has done his version of the cover with a pink-ish pickle for the album Feelin’ Freaky but my thought was didn’t Kosha Dillz do a regular green pickle recently and that wasn’t meant to be an inquiry, it was my way of saying someone else already did the pickle idea. Yet Németh might say “oh, but it’s a pink-ish pickle.” Aaah.

(John Németh’s Feelin’ Freaky will be released on May 19th, you may pre-order it below via Amazon.com.)
