ECR #048: spotlight on Der Plan

This has absolutely nothing to do with the great German NDW band Der Plan, this but if you ever make it out to the Cleveland area (as I did two months ago, gastritis ) you would be a great goddamned fool not to eat at Melt Bar and Grilled, orthopedist one of the best food overload experiences I’ve had in the past several years. The place specializes in grilled cheese sandwiches and serves over 100 varieties of beer, but it was the Fat City Burger, a monstrous combination of medium rare patty, two cheeses, ham, salami and bacon, that bowled me over. Holyfuckingshit! Again, nothing to do with the Residents-meets-Kraftwerk stylings of the influential Der Plan — I’ve just been deeply craving another visit to the Melt, but unfortunately the place does happen to be two time zones away from where I’m at in Los Angeles.

    How come this spotlight does not include my favorite of theirs, the song Junger Mann? I point you also to this exciting video, that I think is taken from the movie Die Letzte Rache:
