Mac And Cheese, Breakfast And A Mercyfuck From The Past

Yesterday while exploring the fuzzy origins of Lord Baltimore’s signature confection, we were given a chance to reference our old touring pal, Mary Prankster. Seems a lifetime ago when as a young, violent sociopath, we would share stages and greenrooms and other, more sordid spoils of touring and our heart still pumps a little more enthusiastically when it’s lub-dubbing in time with Charm City’s purdiest cow punk.

Turns out, her out of print and tricky to acquire debut, Blue Skies Over Dundalk boasts not one, not two but three food themed tracks and we’ve put em right here for you to enjoy and share with your friends.

Mary retired the Prankster character almost a decade ago and fell in love and went to grad-school and came in second on Jeopardy just like the rest of us, but still on quiet nights while walking the streets of Fell’s Point, some people say, if you listen really close, you can almost hear gentle strumming underneath a plaintiff wail of a forever 25-year-old cowpunk singing Mercyfuck.

Lunch Break: Are You Fucking Kidding Us Edition.

At the risk of eating even more crow, our review of this ridiculous, $99 product will be a repurposing of the sentence we wrote when we first saw an iPod; “This purports to fill a need that doesn’t exist and will flop like a european basketball player” We couldn’t be that wrong twice, could we? If you disagree, you can preorder your Vessyl, here.
