chompers.jpgAttention readers attending the SXSW festival this year/fans of TV chefs with obnoxious accents and giant teeth: “We are also reaching out to offer Battles a slot as one of the five bands in the ‘Feedback’ showcase” supposedly hosted by the Food Network’s own Rachael Ray. “Battles music has long been enjoyed by Rachael and is a staple of her iPod.” Given the blog in question, I suspect Internet prankery at work with this “leaked memo,” but would be happy to be proven wrong, especially given how weird the first 31 days of 2008 have been.

    “Battles music has long been enjoyed by Rachael and is a staple of her iPod.”

    If that’s true, she must fucking HATE her husband’s band. Not that that’s hard to do.

    I’d really like to go to this, but it conflicts with that Paula Deen / Motorhead / Slayer showcase.
