AND THERE CAME UPON THE LAND A MIGHTY THUNDER AND GREAT BOLTS OF LIGHTNING. THE GROUND SHOOK AND THE HEAVENS OPENED UP AND A MIGHTY VOICE ECHOED THROUGHOUT THE LAND...
"WHO ORDERED THE SLAM SANDWICH?"
"WAS IT YOU?"
Comrade McBroington and Comrade Jacques Q. Steele and I have spent the past two working days working hard on songs for my new band, 'Nation of Slam.'
I believe it was Jacques Q. Steele who came up with the name, but it could have been McBroington. The band is called Nation of Slam because Slam rhymes with Cam and Cam is ME! Goodness gracious. I would claim full responsibility for this awesome name BUT/HOWEVER everyone I work with reads this internet diary and it would just cause inter-band tension. (but just on the dl/qt, i totally came up with the name by myself, gentle reader)
Later I would google the name to make sure there wasn't already a band called Nation of Slam and was happy to find that there was not. In fact, searching for 'Nation of Slam' only brought up mis-typings of Nation of Islam. Those dudes are crazy motherflippaz. I hope they don't take out a fatwa on account of my band name inadvertently taking the piss. I got enough white power nutcases want to do me in, I don't need black power types aching to pop one in my dome as well.
But if that's the way it has to be, Nation of Slam's debut single will be called, "Get Out Of That Garden And Die Already, Old Man." Just to cover all the bases.
Not really, retirees who still have a desire to contribute to the community. I was totally joking. FOR REAL.
Actually, Nation of Slam's first song is called 'Slam Sandwich.'
We are still working out the lyrics and the fat basslines, but essentially it is a list of all the ingredients that make up the aforementioned Sandwich.
So far, the list is short but delicious.
A ROCKING RACK OF LAMB AND A WHOLE FUCKING ONION!
We didn't quite know what to do after that. How does one top a whole fucking onion?
One simply doesn't.
