Dutch Uncles have wild boar burger named after them

Only 75 of the Stockport indie band's 'Godboy Burgers' will be available this weekend

Dutch Uncles have received the ultimate accolade – a burger restaurant has named a meaty treat after them.

The ‘Godboy Burger Flexxin Out In The Wilds Of The Northern Quarter’ or ‘Godboy Burger’ for short takes influences from the band’s hometown of Marple near Stockport.

The double burger will be served up with Dutch cheese, topped with wild boar sausage, fried onions, chipotle ketchup, Marple syrup – a concoction made from Stockport-brewed Dizzy Blonde Beer – and a speared jelly baby on top.


There will be 25 ‘Godboy Burgers’ available per day from today (January 17) until Sunday (January 20) at Almost Famous, 100 High Street, Manchester.

Dutch Uncles drummer Andy Proudfoot said: “We all love the episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm where Larry gets his own sandwich named after him, so we really jumped at the chance and wanted to get involved. So much so they let have a go at cooking the burgers ourselves…”

Almost Famous owner Beau Myers added: “I was already a fan of the band and asked them for an advance copy of the album and offered to create a burger specially inspired by ‘Out Of Touch In The Wild’. Each week we produce an exclusive special and thought this week’s could be a beautiful coming together of music and burger.”

Dutch Uncles released their third album ‘Out Of Touch In The Wild’ this week (January 14). They are set to tour the UK in February.
