The Main Ingredient
The name of the band is The Main Ingredient. Do you really need to know anything else? Now I can understand that those with zero musical taste could be scratching their heads wondering if I’m actually talking about music or a cooking show. Dig this. Don’t fret; everybody plays the fool….sometimes. There is no other band name that could hold a candle to their title. Are you kidding me? The only other group who comes within a mosquito’s snatch hair would have to be the fictitious swashbucklers from the hit movie “That Thing You Do”. Oh yes, I speak only of Captain Geech & the Shrimp Shack Shooters. Yet low and behold! Someone had the bright idea to actually take that scene from the movie and transform it into reality. Apparently there exists a REAL Geech group out in the MidWest, rockin’ y’all into a drunken stupor. Good for them.
THE MAIN INGREDIENT. How hard does that hit home? Genius in every sense of the word. If those guys were a meal they’d easily be my go-to. In relation to food, just think about what an actual main ingredient is for a moment! It ties the entire culinary creation together! What are flapjacks without syrup (technically can be considered a condiment, but you’re a witch if you eat pancakes dry)? What’s a meatloaf without all that meat (I would do anything for love)? Do you know what you’re eating if you don’t smother that bread with peanut butter and jam? Dry toast. An accurate analogy for your personality. And finally what good is a pizza if it hasn’t been covered with pineapple? WHOA! That was a sick joke. If you put that shit on your pie you liked Sandlot 2. Take a hike.
There is absolutely not one single rhyme NOR reason for this post, I just thought it proper to call attention to the greatest band name of all time.
Go on now; go and listen to some Main Ingredient while playing with your main ingredient. Just don’t play the fool.
