The 'ol Yank Sizzler is expanding. Starting in April, in addition to this podcast, I will be doing The Yank Sizzler on Dandelion Radio out of London. I've been given the honor to join the wonderful staff of this superb station. My first month's show will be a one-hour run, but after that, I should start a regular two hour program every month.
And on a smaller scale, the old hometown folks of Dodge City, KS will be able to hear a 1 hour Yank Sizzler show every week on KONQ 91.9 FM several different times throughout the week.

So back in 2004 the tiny & apparently now dead Catastrophic Records put out 2 10" EPs by 10 Minutes With My Dad. They were a two piece performance art band that rocked out an superbly raunchy 10-15 minute set in the London area. They became the talk of town with their dildo waving shenanigans and then they abruptly disappeared. The records are long out of print and the last few times I tried to correspond with the label I never got any response.
I only have a copy of one of the S/T EPs and would love to find the other.
If your party lacks some dysfunctional pizazz try throwing this on the ol' music box. By the time they sing about fucking their father you'll have twenty people asking you who the hell they are.
10 Minutes with My Dad - 10" S/T EP (2004 - Catastrophic)

2. Party with the Devil

Everyone should head over to the Goatlab website and grab all the supercalifragilisticexpialidocious live DJ sets that got posted from Parasite's 30th birthday blowout. And of course pay special attention to my favorite, Pisstank. Other DJ sets include Exillon, Ironside, The Doubtful Guest & Stivs.
Take care Cadets.

Quite awhile ago I found the song "Master Jack" over at Little Hits. It blew me away and made me happy. I went out immediately and tracked down the LP it came from, an out-of-print gem itself called Master Jack by Four Jacks & a Jill. They were a white South African pop group who performed from the mid to late sixties. The five piece group had the stunning Glenys Lynne, aka "Jill", at the helm vocally and I have to say that I've developed somewhat of a crush on her. She was so cute in 1968.
Anyway, since there is no reason to believe this album will be reissued anytime soon, its time to share.

Craig Comstock is a one man army of sound. Imagine David Yow of the Jesus Lizard playing everything in the band live and singing as well.
Craig goes by the moniker of This Is My Condition. And as someone in Kansas City once said, in a perfect world, Craig would be a superstar for what he creates.
I am the very proud owner of his LP Cut Loose and can't recommend it enough if you desire a tad bit of mayhem and destruction in your evening. And never pass up the opportunity to see him live. He's a machine possessed.
