Detroit Grand Pu Bahs : Sandwiches

As always with records that nod towards novelty while pretending to be serious musical offerings, there's an amusing and no doubt entirely PR-fabricated tale behind this single. The story goes that Andy 'Dr Toefinger' Toth was watching The Hunt For Red October in a drug-induced haze when the Russian sub magically transformed into an enormous pepperoni, mushroom, Swiss cheese and jalape?o pepper baguette. Inspired, he and his writing partner Paris The Black FU (ahem) had the track finished within two hours.





That inspiration means any glimmer of decent, twitching electronica here is made purely irritating by the clever-clever techno mumblings about, well, sandwiches over it. A worthwhile subject as NME realises lunchtime is approaching, but not quite enough to excuse the droning, vocodered vocals here. Still, sit tight and the one-hit wonder should pass by peacefully.
