Nain Rouge Statement

Sorry for the multiplicity of posts, but we felt compelled to let you know that in no way do we believe that our recent conjuring of the Red Dwarf -- or Nain Rouge -- on recent broadcasts had anything to do with the recent melee at the Palace. While the White Stripes' recent interview in a London newspaper may have stirred the little fella, our cryptozooligical opinion is that we're not sure he's allowed outside the city limits. If you have any confirming evidence of the Nain Rouge's role in this event let us know.

Thank you for your patience in this trying time,
Sassy & the Wolf

Send more cops! er, More jams!!

We can't play your jams if we don't have 'em.
The Holy Fire sent us stuff recently. Porchsleeper still hasn't. Hell, even tin Knocker sent us something, damnit.
Get off your ass!

We love you like a monkey loves another monkey.

Vacations for Everyone

Except The Wolf. Work, Wolf, work.
Wigglz took a well-needed "sabbatical" for a week (we saw him leaving the Bouzouki at 3 a.m, headed for the Greektown Casino buffet no doubt. Rest up, fair intern, for tomorrow we work thee).
Anyhoo, I, Sassy, will try not to use any "big words" that I learned in "writing school." That is my solemn promise. (Solemn? It means serious and thoughful, reverent. Oh, hell, just try to keep up). I enjoyed a soujourn -- strike that -- vacation to Chicago, taken under the mistaken impression that some sort of Million Rocker March was to take place on the House of Blues (opening Nov. '05 in Detroit. What?!). Thanks, Wolf! Really fuckin' funny. Joke's on you, though. My hotel bill was charged to your corporate credit card. How you like them apples -- Skylaaahh!!!
You know where I was when you were "working" on the show? 95th floor of the Hancock Building, drinking martinis on that same credit card. How I suffer for our art.
Anyhoo again, thanks to David Buick for upholding the fine Radio Fever tradition.

Playlistage from The Overlordz

"Whet your whistles and prepare to let loose a wolf call."
That's the memo that was attached to this e-mail from the doofi that keep me in servitude (aka Sassy & the Wolf). They can feed me free pizza till I puke and I still won't get over the fact that Chris made me wash the bird crap off his LeSabre in 40-degree weather (on a Sunday!).
Still, I gotta hand it to them, they put on a "show" on Saturday. Freddy Fortune was "on" as usual and how about "Dick Valentine" promising to do a "Century Club" onstage during the E6 show on the 26th? Damn. That's hardcore, yo. Dick be hangin'.

Chris and Greg also wanted me to tellz ya that they'll be making me archive their "2-Minute Record Reviews" for your "reading pleasure". Yeah, they seem to think that I'm impressed with their writing ability. Let's not forget that I also interned at Interview and Vanity Fair (as well as an ill-fated, but nonetheless-exciting stint with "The Splendid Table" on National Public Radio. Mmmmm...schweaty balls).

Also, Dave Buick will be sitting in for Sassy next week, so expect shenanigans and don't be afraid to call "shenanigans" either.

so here's the jamz they played last Saturdizz (Nov. 13th). Later freakz. Wigglz.

Gore Gore Girls > Don't Cry
Electric Six > I'm A Demon & I Love Rock 'N Roll
Valentinos > Aerosol Dream
Tiny Steps > On With Time
