Buy this 7″, you hockey puck

Now you can have a vinyl 7″ / novelty-size drink coaster of your very own – Original Recipe’s apopleptic post-apocalypso agitprop-hop dream diary ‘Hank Manicotti b/w Battleaxe!’ is now available on 7″ vinyl and as a digital release. It’s burnin’ up the Canadian specialty electronic charts (tens and tens of listens!) and providing the soundtrack to many a WoW guild raid, yo. You can buy it here.

Includes music!*

Hank Manicotti / Battleaxe! 7″

The new Original Recipe release, a 7″ vinyl (Hank Manicotti b/w Battleaxe!) will be coming out on Vinyl Republik this summer. Remixes currently being prepared by Kaneel and others.

File under: fuckjazz.

This is the first time we’ve ever had an actual release on vinyl, and it’s a win/win from what we can tell.

The artwork is a painting done by a good friend of ours, Sara Witty, an amazing artist and uber cool human being all around. Check out her stuff here.

Anyway, this record isn’t out yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know when it is!

Nigiri, Please

We’re working on something new. It’s going to kick your ass. I know, it’s been a long time since we’ve released anything, but how about you try writing music with someone 3000 miles away. Anyway, there’s some seriously, seriously hot jamz in this lineup, and it’s the best work we’ve ever done (except maybe for Flanched Farney Garney and that time Steve misinterpreted a Red Lobster menu as a dare and was rushed to the hospital to have 147 shrimp pumped from his stomach). The record is supposed to come out sometime this fall after an interdeterminate period of aging, perhaps in a cave, not unlike delicious gruyere, and we will be sure to let you know when that happens. In the meantime, look out for the the Hank Manicotti / Battleaxe! 7″ vinyl release which has already been mastered and, as we understand it, is going to press any day now.

You Got Served

You Came, You Saw, You Ate. We had a lot of fun last night at Lounge 88; as evidenced by my pounding head and aching liver. Thanks to Shannon and Mel for being the eye candy, and serving up the delcious snack treats and whatnot. I Am Robot & Proud had real, live groupies at the show. It was positivelychilling. Some photos for your scrapbooks and/or hope chests:

Prove Anything

Steve basically put this together as an excuse to use samples we’d lifted from a record called “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner”; which was a recording containing largely monologues from Black Vietnam Vets, something we can’t really identify with, but applaud their aplomb.
