Being in a rock band is a total grind -- ceaselessly rehearsing and touring, all the while knowing that The Grind's Eric Nies is still getting more ass than you. Going from the sonic grind to the sausage one, the guy behind Wurst Tex.
Launched by an Oliver Future member just returned from a five-year L.A. stint that saw him opening for Arcade Fire and Coldplay (they deafened you with science!), Wurst is a fire-engine red trailer serving gourmet brats inspired by the apparently unbridled creativity of L.A.'s sausage scene, which apparently isn't confined to the Valley. Served on fresh-delivered New World Bakery hoagies, many bangers use exotic meat imported from the West Coast, e.g. The Don (duck & bacon w/ jalapenos), Bill's Pick (buffalo spike w/ beef and pork, plus chipotles), and the 'peno peppered rattlesnake/rabbit Predator and Prey -- as opposed to Predator and Pray...Chris Hansen doesn't show up. Less bizarre bunfillers come by way of San Antone, like the chicken & turkey El Wursto (w/ habaneros, pepper jack, tequila baste) and the venison & pork Buckwurst (w/ 'penos, cheddar); there's also veggie-fare like the Yukon potato/sweet apple/rubbed sage/onion "04 Delight" -- if Leslie tries to show you this, move to another zip code.
To top off any brat they're dispensing four types of mustard as well as grilled onions, 'kraut, and bell/jalapeno peps; they're also serving up Mexican Coke and Miss Vickie kettle-cooked chips -- indulge too much, and no one will
get have more ass than you.
