Just 11 days after our last pizza related story, quirky psych-pop band Animal Collective have had a pizza named in their honour.
As reported by Flavourwire, the tribute to the critically acclaimed trio is served at American pizza chain ‘Two Boots’. The fashionable string of restaurants have also dubbed pizzas from such eclectic musical realms as thrash metal titans Slayer, bebop jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker and Meg White from The White Stripes. Animal Collective’s personal slice costs $4.00 and tops a sicilian crust with tasso ham, chicken, smoked andouille sausage, meatballs and pepperoni. Or in other words: pig, chicken and cow – an animal ‘collective’.
We like that. It’s clever.
In other pizza-centric news, Home Alone actor Macaulay Culkin’s pizza-themed Velvet Underground covers band have been threatened by another act that found musical inspiration in the most wondrous of foods. Culkin’s band, called ‘The Pizza Underground’ have provoked ‘Personal & The Pizzas’ frontman (named Personal), who stated his intention to “kill” and “sue” the Home Alone actor for messing “with the f**kin pizzas” whilst speaking to eMusic.
Both bands are from New York and therefore we fully expect some kind of surreal pizza-based turf war to break out. If it does, we promise to bring you regular updates.
