Brains And Eggs, The White Boy Boogie

Posted By on Tue, Apr 1, 2008 at 9:19 AM


Incanto's Chef Chris Cosentino, he of the jiggly beef tendons and raw liver venison has been honored in all his gut-loving offal-ness by band One Ring Zero (full disclosure: it's his brother-in-law's band), who made his recipe for brains and eggs -- affectionately known as the butcher's treat -- into a song, a kind of white-boy rap boogie, with Isaac Hayes-esque interludes for the directions. It defies description, so you'll just have to listen to it. Then, as Cosentino urges, "make yourself some dinner" -- or not. The best line for my money, simply because it's impossible to make it sound sing-songy:

"Gently place the brains into the water and simmer them for 5 minutes. Remove the brains from the water with a perforated spoon and place on a plate. Put the plate in the refrigerator to cool for about 15 minutes."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
