A brief followup to my first Covid-19 statement.
In 2014, Tom and Uncle Meat made a video for their “Here Comes LeBrain Again” parody which I gladly used as my theme song. In 2020 that video is a little out of date, so I decided to make an updated one. Check both versions out below and let me know.
Thanks to Meat and Tom for recording the song and making the original.

Our gracious host Iron Tom Sharpe has furnished us with the full Sausagefest 2019 countdown! Gaze at the majesty below. A few brief notes first:
1. “Kiss Me Deadly” by Lita Ford was blamed on Uncle Meat, who definitely took a verbal bruising for that song appearing so high at #22. Meanwhile I took flak for Greta Van Fleet.
2. I am pleased any time Kiss makes the list. “She” was so awesome to groove (shirtless) to on the Friday night.
3. “Fuck yeah!” to Testament, Sabbath (with Gillan), the Kinks, and Iron Maiden (including a non-album song).
4. I marked the songs that I did intros for with an *

GETTING MORE TALE #765:
“Three Yolks, Two Whites” …and One Fucked Up Tent: The Sausagefest 2019 Story
It’s better than Christmas. It’s better than birthdays. It’s more rock and roll than Lemmy snorting coke off Ozzy Osbourne’s cock. It’s Sausagefest.
We look forward to this rock and roll party every year. It is the highlight of our calendars. We meticulously plan out songs, sketches, jokes, and food. Mountains of meat, sizzling to a soundtrack of pure integrity (with a couple musical exceptions). Male companionship? More like brotherhood.
Preparation is key. I started recording bits for my Sausagefest contributions late last year. All my introductions were “finished” weeks ahead of time, which gave the rare opportunity to listen and go back and fix things that were not working. It was worth it. The intros were well received and Uncle Meat enjoyed the Rob Gronkowski bits that I poached from Family Guy.
Meat and I left town after lunch on Friday, and as per our new tradition, stopped at Value Village to buy new T-shirts for the party. The more ridiculous the better, for him. He found a stupidly bright pink shirt depicting a Dr. Aftab Patla, and for me a shirt that said “OFFICER OF ROCK” on the back.
“Should have said ‘cock’,” commented my pal Jason.
This is the kind of stuff we find funny.
It was a blazing hot Friday and as soon as I had my new tent and canopy set up, I went down to the river for the first swim of the weekend. Many of the boys had already arrived, and our glorious leader Tom pulled in at the same time we did.
There was an issue early in the evening. Apparently the old laptop that has been playing the Countdown ever since they did the switch to mp3 has a bad audio out jack. The backup plan was to play the Countdown off Meat’s phone, but it refused to play the tracks in the right order. As a team we re-numbered all the id3 tags and renamed all the tracks until his phone miraculously began to do what we needed. All of this done in a big open field on a Samsung phone.
The legendary 100 song Countdown was inaugurated this year by Styx with “Renegade”. We were treated to a slew of classics (Black Sabbath, the Kinks, Drive By Truckers, Queensryche, Tenacious D, etc.) and a few duds (Afroman). There is a certain, shall we say, younger element that has grown as Sausagefest expanded. These highly respected youngsters were responsible for voting in some pretty incredible music from rock to funk. Where they confuse me periodically is shit like Afroman. You will hear me ranting about the rap songs on this year’s video, included at the bottom.
Afroman was one of nine songs that were given to me to introduce. I refused to do it; instead I ranted for a bit about being stuck with a shit song, and asked my radio buddy Erik Woods to do it. So picture that deep radio voice announcing, “this song is called ‘She Won’t Let Me Fuck'”.
I will give the young fellas credit for one thing. When I arrived, I found out they were already campaigning for votes to get “Beth” onto next year’s Countdown. This is, of course, because in 2015 I had to blast the song at full volume to wake up Uncle Meat, and even that wouldn’t do it. Personally I would love if “Beth” made the Countdown next year, as a little wink to the Meat Man, who is not a morning person. You’ll see that in the video as well.
Max the Axe wanted to grab breakfast at the Spatula early Saturday morning. We roused the Meat Man, who was more than a little displeased to find out we arrived before they actually opened. I took the brunt of the blame even though it was Max (his own band leader) who wanted to go! And this is where things go slightly sideways.
The Spatula opened just five minutes later, and Max the Axe threw a wrench into things immediately by ordering eggs with “three yolks, and two whites”. Our server didn’t seem to be in the best of moods, having already referred to Sebastien Munier as “Mr. Tattoo” when he walked in. Max’s order was probably not the first one she wanted to take that morning.
“I don’t understand what he wants,” she said to us. “I’m just giving him two eggs.” The rest of us nodded in agreement. Three yolks and two whites? Who the fuck orders that?
“The chefs know how to make it!” testified Max in his own defence. “They use the leftover egg white to make Hollandaise sauce.”
I did my research on this, and just to make everything even funnier, Max got that 100% wrong. According to every recipe I consulted, Hollandaise sauce is made with yolks, not whites!
Max ate his two eggs in peace, but we were actually a bit perturbed at a new, teeny-tiny menu. The legendary Flesherton Fillup breakfast is gone. So is the steak and eggs. It’s all gone, replaced by a simplified menu where you have to build your own replica Flesherton Fillup by ordering the extra meats and add-ons yourself.
“When did you get rid of the Flesherton Fillup?” asked Meat.
“Oh, we haven’t had that in a long time,” said the server.
“We were here last year and you had it then, I’m just surprised,” said Meat.
Condescendingly she answered, “Isn’t a year a long time?”
An underwhelming breakfast couldn’t derail us, though we will consider finding a new breakfast joint next year. Here’s a fact you didn’t know: the legendary Max the Axe is a garage sale aficionado. Who knew that rock stars spent their weekend mornings hitting up garage sales? We took Max to a couple garage sales on our way back, and apparently he just missed an old quadraphonic receiver ($5.00) by about five minutes.
It was a lazy afternoon spent (mostly) in the river, socializing and playing with my new waterproof camera. With flawless timing, Zach the Lamb Lord served up his perfectly marinated side of lamb. He outdid himself this year, with perhaps the juiciest lamb ever cooked by anyone.
The second evening’s continuation of the Countdown rewound a bit for those of us (like me) who fell asleep early the night before. As the sun slowly began to turn into fire behind the trees, we all listened in. Some were cooking steaks, some playing Frisbee, with the rest of us sitting attentively around the fire.
I had four more song intros on day two. Another radio buddy, Jason Drury, helped me out with an intro for the B-52’s “Rock Lobster”. Jason is from Ramsgate in the UK but everybody seemed to have different ideas of where he was from. “Who was that Australian guy?” or “Who was that Irish guy?” Day two of the Countdown had some smoking good tunes, including surprises like “Women in Uniform”, a non-album single by Iron Maiden. When Tom posts the full tracklist for the entire Countdown, I’ll do the same.
Sausagefest may have ended, but the next morning offered its own unique challenge: waking up Uncle Meat. “It’s going to be pretty difficult to spin this to make you look good,” he said pointedly, and he’s right. I’m not asking anyone to take my side in this. However, if you don’t think it’s funny as hell, that’s not my problem.
I had to be back in town at a certain time. “When should I start the process of waking him up, given that I want to be home by noon?” I asked his roomate Zach.
“I’d start now,” he said bluntly. It was 8:00 am.
I gently woke him by telling him I wanted to start getting ready to go. He could nap a bit longer but I would eventually need his help taking down the canopy. I put on Kiss Alive II and toiled on packing up my stuff. I stopped the album a couple times while I was working, but when “Beth” came on, I did what I had to do. I blasted it for him. This was his alarm clock.
I waited a while longer, asked some advice. I shook his tent a little and told him to get up. An anonymous man (who has an excellent real first name) suggested I remove a couple of the tentpoles. That seemed reasonable. It didn’t do much though. I gave it a little more time, and then removed the final two tentpoles. Meat lay there motionless.
“Is there anyone even in there?” someone asked. Oh, he was in there. Trust me.
“Maybe now you should take the top of the tent off,” said a second anonymous man. Unnecessary.
Like an animal trapped in a net, first an arm thrust forth. It failed to penetrate the tent. Then an unsuccessful leg kicked up. Then another arm, and another leg. Then, as the frenzy built, the tent transformed into a ball of limbs, trying to smash their way through. If you stuck that crazy rat from Stranger Things 3 in a bag, it would have looked a lot like Meat in his tent. We watched the activity from a distance, guffawing so loudly that I have never come so close to actually piss myself laughing. I could feel a bead of pee forming. The futile struggle to open the tent, from a safe orbit, was simultaneously pants-wettingly funny and tear-forming sad! Max was the first to have mercy on Uncle Meat, and opened the tent for him.
Because I gave him the tent, he threw one of the tent poles into the forest in retaliation. That’s OK; I have lots of spares!
He was justifiably mad. So was Chuck, for me blasting “Beth” at a still fairly early hour. These people don’t get it. You cannot go anywhere with Uncle Meat when you want to, unless you take extreme measures. You are at the mercy of his whims, his hangover, and his appetite for cigarettes. Oh sure, he’ll keep you laughing the whole way home (at least when his voice isn’t completely fucked) but actually getting him packed and into the vehicle is its own entire movie to itself. The Sausagefest spinoff movie would have to be called Bedsheet Puptent: The Waking of Meat.
I got home 30 minutes earlier than I had to be, which was fucking perfect. So, thank you Meat for not bearing a grudge, but I got home in excellent time. Thank you for your cooperation! I cheered him up by messing with Dave Haslam on the way home, in the car behind us. That put the smile back on Meat’s face. Even though Haslam was completely innocent in all this, he had to pay the price to get Meat back in a good mood.
It was actually a nice ride home, spent listening to a soundboard bootleg from Iron Maiden’s Matter of Life and Death tour. “That was their best album since Seventh Son“, he said. I claimed Somewhere in Time. It matters not. It was a great listen, even though a few days earlier Meat was complaining about a live Kiss show sounding “too bootleggy”.
It was an awesome Fest, but aren’t they all? I’ve never experienced a dud. Our most excellent host and his companions in the shenanigans put on a great show every year. Stay tuned for the full Countdown. Until then, enjoy the video which captures the flavour of the Fest. See how many songs you recognize from the Countdown!
A labour of love brought to us every year with blood, sweat, years and possibly other bodily fluids: It’s Sausagefest!
New wrinkles this year include a water proof camera for those aquatic shots. Look for a guest appearance by legendary rock star Max the Axe (he’s kind of a big deal).
The Countdown this year included a number of favourites; see if you can pick ’em out in the video.
Oh, there are stories too. Max the Axe ordering two and half eggs at the Spatula. Uncle Meat trapped trying to escape a collapsed tent; a brutal trick by his “friends”. Also the first time I may genuinely peed myself laughing. These stories will be shared when the mind and body have had time to heal. There was also a UFO sighting at 3:30 am Saturday morning.
Thanks Erik Woods, Jason Drury, and Dave Jutzi for your help with my recordings this year!
This is what we do with our rock and roll vacation.
On Monday I bought a new car. I look forward to taking it up to Sausagefest in a few weeks. Uncle Meat will not be allowed to sleep in my car.
Look what shit-disturber Tom Morwood wrote!
GETTING MORE TALE #754: High Steaks at Huron Lake
A lot changed in 10 months.
We haven’t been to the lake since last July. Then Jen’s mom got sick and we spent the rest of the summer driving to and from Toronto, and in hospitals. Then before we knew it, she was gone.
As part of the healing process, Jen and I have been aching to get back to the cottage. Her mom loved it here, and she never made it again, though she really wanted to. We’d drive up with her mom in the back seat reading a book. Every once in a while, I’d look in the mirror and see her, eyes closed, snoozing in the back. Or so it appeared.
“Jen, look. Your mom’s sleeping.”
Then suddenly before Jen could see, Mum’s eyes would open. “I can hear you Michael and I’m not sleeping. I’m resting my eyes.”
Finally we were going back. We packed our bags for the lake, and I spent an hour or so loading music onto a flash drive for the ride. Specially curated of course, and including the newest hits like Flesh & Blood by Whitesnake. I have so many flash drives, however, that I made the mistake of loading the one with the little Autobot symbol. I should have thrown out that flash drive a long time ago. It works on a computer but not in the car, not since it fell in a puddle a while ago. We were forced to listen to another random flash drive that I had in the car, which turned out to be serendipitous.
The only album on this specific flash drive was Alice Cooper’s A Paranormal Evening at the Olympia Paris. Our first concert together happened to be Alice Cooper, so at least it was something we’d enjoy. “Hurricane” Nita Strauss is phenomenal on it, so I was really tuned into the guitar playing. Jen was just rocking out and singing along.
But things sure do change in a mere 10 months, the last time I was driving those particular roads. There is a new Tim Hortons, a few improved roadways, and some traffic lights where there were none before.
By the time Alice Cooper informed us that school was indeed out for summer, we were past Lucknow and well into the windfarms. That meant the lake was close. Again we laughed. Jen’s mom hated those windfarms. “A Liberal financial disaster,” she called them. We tried to count the windmills on the way up and it’s all but impossible.
Finally we arrived at the cottage and smelled that country air. A mix of pine, rain and earth. I was napping within hours of arrival! I knocked out good.
We always arrive at the lake prepared to entertain ourselves. With a killer wi-fi connection (welcome to cottage life 2019) I was showing my dad scenes from Infinity War within minutes. I also copied that faulty Autobot flash drive over to a fresh one and tossed out the original. Won’t be making that mistake again, but recovered the Whitesnake album in the process!
I didn’t have much in terms of goals, except to relax and not let anything stress me out. One thing I was looking forward to was cooking, so I did up a couple steaks, hot dogs, and fish for the family. I wanted to try a couple new things this time. First, I wanted to do one of the steaks on a wood fire instead of the barbecue. We have not done them like that in over 25 years, but the smokiness of a real fire can add its own character to a good steak and make it perfect. That’s what happened this time. The steak cooked over the fire was the superior steak for flavour. I did it to a rare, which was something else I love. I did the fish over the wood fire too (using maple and cedar). I chose a nice fatty piece of salmon, and a cheaper but larger fillet of Lake Huron trout; both darker fish. I tried something different for them. I laid down a bed of lemon slices onto the grill, and then cooked the fish on top of the lemons. For seasoning I only used salt, pepper and a roasted garlic olive oil. The result was a juicy, perfect fish that took longer to cook than normal but acquired all that lemony goodness right into the skin. I added more salt as I went, then I finished them directly over the flames to get the crispy skin. Surprisingly, the lake trout was the superior tasting fish. I’m usually a salmon guy but I haven’t eaten a trout since I was a little kid.
We had a birthday party and cake for my dad, now young at 81. You know what my dad enjoyed more than any of that stuff? Going to a car dealership on a Sunday and help me pick out my next vehicle. I won’t reveal what I’ve chosen until I buy the car — stay tuned. We took my dad’s new car there, and he showed me all the latest gadgets that I’ll be getting too. I was impressed to see that he had three USB ports! I plugged my flash drive into one of them and treated him to some music. Max the Axe – “Next Plane to Vegas”.
“This is my friend Uncle Meat singing,” I told him.
He listened for a bit and said, “Your friend Uncle Meat can sing.” High praise from him!
The weather wasn’t the greatest, but we slept with the windows open and the lake air coming in — the best way to get a great rest. And rest we did. We ate some good cooking and came home with bellies full. Best of all, I have some ideas for the next cookout.
The May long weekend is the official ushering in of summertime. Welcome, summer 2019 – we’ve been expecting you!
CLAYPOOL LENNON DELIRIUM – Danforth Music Hall – Toronto, April 10 2019
By Uncle Meat
Sometimes you go to Rock shows and are blown away by the venue, or the sound of the band, or the band itself, or something extra special happens. Usually you are lucky to be subjected to one or two of these wonderful things. It’s rare when all these things happen at once to make truly iconic memories you could never possibly forget. This happened for me last night. Music is the gift that keeps on giving.
Found out yesterday morning that I was going to see Claypool Lennon Delerium at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto. Special thanks to friend and fellow Sausagefester Aaron Stepaniuk for inviting me. I had never been to the venue, nor had I ever seen Les Claypool perform. I found it interesting as well that it was the very first show of their tour, showcasing their new album South of Reality.
Walking into the venue during the opening band, instantly I loved the Danforth Music Hall. Very cool place to see a show. Warming up the proceedings was someone by the name of Jim James. All I knew was that he used to be the singer for a band I know nothing about called My Morning Jacket. I was informed on the way to Toronto by Aaron’s girlfriend Rachel that there is an American Dad episode basically dedicated to “the angelic voice of” Jim James. Gonna have to check out some American Dad. The few songs we caught I deemed as “whispy”. It wasn’t bad but didn’t resonate with me. Jim James’ look reminded me of Daryl Hall dressed as the Joker and I was kinda glad when it ended so we could go out and smoke a huge joint.
As I am hauling off of this Buck-constructed, Buck-approved monster of a spliff, a door opens beside me, (I was too concerned with smoking this massive joint to even realise we were standing right beside an equally massive tour bus) and while I’m taking a healthy drag out walks Geddy Lee. Yes…THAT Geddy Lee. I almost exhaled the drag right into his nose, he was that close to me. Instantly I started wondering if he could be getting on stage, but that stuff never actually happens for real…Right?
The show starts off with Pink Floyd’s “Astronomy Domine”. I knew they might do some covers since they released an EP of covers in 2017 called Lime and Limpid Green. On that note, the covers played that night were epic songs that most bands wouldn’t dare even try. “Astronomy Domine”, “Boris the Spider” and “The Court of the Crimson King” are songs that you MUST play well live to even consider such an idea. Interspersed throughout the covers were songs from their 2016 debut album Monolith of Phobos and their newest album South of Reality. I enjoyed everything I heard that night. First of all, Claypool and Sean Lennon can both sing very well and both comfortable in a high vocal range. The keyboard player also sang backup vocals. No matter if it was Lennon or Claypool taking lead vocals, the background vocals were top-shelf fucking glorious. This aspect was a definite highlight of the show. I was there to see Claypool and he didn’t disappoint whatsoever. However Sean Lennon was a bit of a revelation to me. He is an amazing singer and a much better guitar player than I would have imagined.
The stage banter between Les Claypool and Sean Lennon (or “Shiner” as Les kept referring to him as) was comfortable and cool. After some more of their anecdotes, the drummer breaks into a very familiar drum pattern. I turned to my buddy Bucky and said “They aren’t really gonna play this are they?” The rest of the band started to join in and yeppers , they are playing Tomorrow Never Knows, written by the guitar player’s father. You may have heard of him. I can see off stage as a stage hand is standing there with a bass in his hand. He hands it to an emerging shadow and out walks Mr. Geddy Fucking Lee, possibly still on a contact high from the joint smoking he walked through earlier. Now I am watching Sean Lennon sing his late father’s song with two of the greatest bass players of all time on stage. You cant make this shit up. This kinda stuff never really happens and now it is happening. As they are jamming out the song hard, Les Claypool does one of the coolest things I have ever seen. He takes off his bass and starts kinda bowing to Geddy Lee with a huge smile on his face, gives a little “see ya” nod to the audience and walks off stage, leaving now only Geddy finishing “Tomorrow Never Knows” with the band. For a couple minutes it was actually The Lennon Geddy LEErium. The respect and tribute that Claypool shone upon Geddy by the nod and walking off stage will be a top 5 (Or higher) concert moment for me. I had the utmost respect for Claypool before this night. With one little wave to the crowd and the walk-off, he made my Rock & Roll heart melt. I so wish Tom Morwood was there. He would have cried like a big bearded baby.
The band walked off and came back for an encore. Claypool says something like, “Gotta love when guys like Geddy Van Halen just walk on stage. That’s what still gets my dick erect”. The Delerium then went into their lone encore song, Primus’s “Southbound Pachyderm”. It totally kicked ass with a sensational bass groove. What a show.
What more could you ask for? Did that really just happen? Mind…Blown.
