"The Roadside Diner Collection"

by Various Artists



Flapjack Records has definitely been around the block and back when it comes to upsetting stomachs and dance floors for that matter. This next addition to the Flapjack digital catalog is a super phat grease stain of a compilation. This EP is the kind of musical stain that will never come out and is a tribute to all the greasy spoon diner meals that many DJ’s have had to endure whilst on the road. Flapjack is proud to present “The Roadside Diner Collection”.

Ironically, none of the artists on this EP are from the U.S., so I don’t think they even know of the tummy rumbling wonders of this American roadside tradition.
You Can’t Hide from this track. This is a play on the many time over sampled traditional eggs n bacon on toast with black coffee special that is a timeless classic at all roadside diners. The great thing is this was cooked up by a rookie 17 year old short order cook from Poland named Michael R Jr. Trained in the musical fruits on the 1’s n 2’s by his father, he sets his sights on the underground with a gut wrenching vengeance.

Richard Loughlin of Manchester, UK has been bussing tables at this grease spot for over 15 years now. It’s about time he crunched out “This Party” between cleaning the urine puke stained booth in Bessie’s section, and the four fat ass truckers 3 foot high dish pile from this morning. The tune really slams the dishes good making everyone in the place lift their heads from their coffee and morning paper.

Over here we have our new waiter JD Mals working a double shift. He has been pushing the fish and his joint “Little Pixy” as it is about to turn. This is an updated swing number that pushes the envelope of drinking the milk well past the expiration date on the carton. It’s as solid as the skillet pan in the kitchen and just as hot too.

On your way out, don’t forget to tip and then chat up the host Zurlock for some complimentary Andes candies. His English is a little hard to understand being that he is fresh off the boat from Genova, but he knows how to seat people according to the rotation. Also have a grab at his funked up jazz jam “Iazzz” sitting on the newsstand. It is sure to be a captivating read, and be sure to check the local want ads in the back. You will definitely find a way to get rid of that old toaster oven and get you a couple bucks. Thanks for stopping by and I hope y’all enjoyed you some of “The Roadside Diner Collection”.
