The fine art of beef back ribs

[A regular feature of our newsletter, as dictated by bassist Joe Stuhff.]

     Meat can have a great and sensual flavor. It can also be inedible ultragarbage, if prepared by one not savvy to this fact: Meat isn’t the delicious part of meat. It is the fat, the ligaments, the sinewy parts from whence glue is rendered, which rule our pallets like latex-clad flavor dominatrices. The protein part is just substance, a texture to contain in its little pockets and nooks and crannies the honey-sweet tang of melting bone sheaths. For those willing to forgo proper digestive function in favor of a truly luxuriant experience gastronomique, I proudly submit my preparation for:

                        BEEF BACK RIBS

At least one rack of BEEF BACK RIBS, meaty ones, not those frozen shits.  The ribs should be cut in half, through the rack once flanken style, so no bone is longer than five inches.

We are having our monthly attendance gathering of individuals to determine the approved minimum suitable levels of ROCK MUSIC THAT WILL OBLITERATE YOUR SOUL, after having some delicious tempura artichoke hearts (my favorite, and yours). This is again one of the few chances for HN fans to come early to a show, consume tempura artichoke hearts, and then experience an evening of music appropriate to a consistent aesthetic, yo.

You should check out Datura Blues and Black Science on their websites in preparation.

Update: (apologies to those on the newsletter; usually we tell you first) We are playing an updated version of Friends for Ever. Update x 2: Dean’s gonna record Black Science in a couple weeks in Magnets Large & Small.

In other news, Joe’s gonna procreate, we still have a poll open, and we recorded some tracks for Friends for ever, fang to death, human error, and will be recording You Are Transparent next.

We’ve tuned up our gadgetry and sung arpeggios into the mirror, so that must mean another show is approaching.  Get ready to hear some lyrics over our newest song, Midnight Beachboy.  It’s a night of post rock experimentation with our instruments and each other.

If you got our newsletter, you know where it is.  Otherwise you’ll have to ask us, or your friends, because it’s an extra special super secret show.  It’s a perfectly private pitty party.
