BOB LOVES YOU, BUT YOU’RE ALL TERRIBLE! THE BOB’S BURGERS MUSIC ALBUM (VOL. 1?)

July 17, 2020

In the tradition of MacFarlane and Groening, Loren Bouchard makes music the focal point of Bob’s Burgers. So why not put out an album?

A while back, when the Cartoon Network used to show the original Adult Swim, there was a cartoon called Home Movies. Home Movies started the careers of not only Brendon Small of Metalacalypse fame (fleeting as it was, he also has an Epiphone guitar, the Snowbird model I think) as well as Bob’s Burgers creator Loren Bouchard, but the biggest name to emerge from the Home Movies role of Coach McGurk, the Arby’s chef, Carl the mini mart clerk on Family Guy, Archer of the same name, and countless voice overs for Seth MacFarlane, is none other than H. Jon Benjamin.

Benjamin plays burger joint owner Bob Belcher. His wife Linda is played by John Roberts who also does a convincing Michael McDonald, and the Belchers have three children. Tina, played to the deadpan max by Dan Mintz, son Gene played by the multi-talented comedy veteran Eugene Mirman, but the stolen star of the show HAS to be Louise played by the pre-adolescent voice of adult actress Kristin Schaal.

The voice cast overall is extremely talented as this ‘jersey-shore’ family seems to find the most remarkable circumstances not only to get themselves into, but to (of all things) sing about!

All the times I heard Coach McGurk, I never thought he could sing!

THE MASS EXODUS I HAD FEARED SINCE CHILDHOOD IS HERE NOW!

April 4, 2016

Sorry folks, no photos of album covers or artists performing live in this blog. In fact, we are embracing the here and now, with a morose eye towards the future. I never thought I would be posting something like this, but in the light of recent events (read: the massive amount of influential musicians who are passing away at a pace none of us can keep up with), I really had no choice. This was a necessity above and beyond my ordinary macabre nature.

For me, I think it started with the death of Alan Myers, the original drummer for Devo. It was a severe blow when a short time later, his bandmate and co-founder of Devo, Robert Casale also (and most definitely unexpectedly) passed away.

Then the onslaught began.
