Unreleased music from Labretta Suede & the Motel 6

Posted By on Fri, Apr 30, 2010 at 12:00 PM

It's not often we get exclusive tunes here at Wayward Blog, much less from an international act. However, here we are with "All Girl Gang Riot," from Labretta Suede & the Motel 6. The band originally hails all the way from Auckland, New Zealand, but now calls New York City home.

Sez Ms. Suede herself: "'All Girl Gang Riot' was recorded with Matt Verta-Ray here in NYC and has yet to be released or mastered for that matter... but it sound pretty good regardless."

We agree. Anything Verta-Ray puts his hand to (Speedball Baby's Cinema!, for instance) is frickin' awesome, and this track is no different. It's a garage stomper highly recommended for those who like to frug, shang-a-lang, and so forth. We also have "Boogaloo," from the band's debut, Not Food Hungry. You are now prepared to get on down when the band hits our area twice next week.

Labretta Suede & the Motel 6 play the Record Bar in Thursday, May 13, with Little Rachel and the Rhythm Busters, as well as the Billybats. They hit the Jackpot the following night, Friday, May 14, with the Spook Lights.

Zach Golden: What the F@*! Should I Make for Dinner?

Posted By on Fri, Apr 30, 2010 at 11:00 AM

New York City copywriter Zach Golden is one of the creators of the site.
  • New York City copywriter Zach Golden is one of the creators of the site.

We can check off one of mankind's greatest unanswered questions. What the Fuck Should I Make For Dinner? is a Web site that, with each click of your mouse, randomly generates a suggestion for what to cook. Advertising co-workers Russ Phillips, 25, and Zach Golden, 24, decided to tackle the question last Friday, and WTFSIMFD launched on Monday.

"It was our recurring sign off. What are you doing tonight? Fucking cooking some dinner -- but we never knew what to cook," said Golden, a copywriter living in Brooklyn, when Fat City reached him by phone yesterday.

The site pulls meat and fish recipes from Epicurious -- Golden and Phillips compiled the list -- and takes vegetarian options from recipe.com. It gives readers only three options: Accept the initial recipe, ask for a vegetarian option, or ask for a new suggestion. 

"People love swearing and people have proven to love food as well. But how quickly we've reached this level is probably not a good thing about our society," said Golden.

Holly Golightly at the Record Bar

Posted By on Fri, Apr 30, 2010 at 10:59 AM

Holly Golightly has a retro fetish and an obsession with the American south. The singer and songwriter rocked out with her '60s garage get-up, Thee Headcoatees, and Spin magazine once named her the U.K. garage-rock queen. If none of that rings a bell, you probably know her from the White Stripes' ditty, "It's True That We Love One Another." Here are some shots from Holly Golightly's show at the Record Bar last night with her bandmate, Lawyer Dave.

Shatto milk is back to full production

Posted By on Fri, Apr 30, 2010 at 10:00 AM

Shatto Milk unveils a new line of T-shirts tomorrow -- Fat City got a sneak peek.
  • Shatto Milk unveils a new line of T-shirts tomorrow -- Fat City got a sneak peek.

Extremely cold weather and lingering low temperatures slowed cows' milk production at the Shatto dairy farm in Osborn, Missouri, this spring. But with warmer days, the 300 cattle have increased their production and this week all flavors of Shatto milk were once again in stores.

"We're committed to being all natural, so we just beg a lot," Matt Shatto says, joking about trying to get the cows to make more milk.

In a more practical approach, Shatto hopes to expand the line of cheeses it introduced last October at Whole Foods. A cheese operation allows Shatto to increase its herd size, which helps alleviate the slower production times.

"The aged cheeses mean that we will always have more cows than we need for fluid milk," says Shatto.

Sam Brownback bakes shady car loans into apple pie

Posted By on Fri, Apr 30, 2010 at 7:30 AM

Politics is pretty easy, really. You just say "Main Street" whenever you're trying to make a point.

U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback got a little C-SPAN time the other day. The Kansas lawmaker is leading the effort in the Senate to carve auto dealers out of the Consumer Financial Protection Agency. In his remarks, Brownback called auto dealers "quintessential Main Street.".


And, hey, if you're the victim of "yo-yo" financing or some other shady practice, take it up with that bedazzled piece of Old Glory the National Automobile Dealers Association fought and die for at Antietam.
