It was the Year of Our Lord 2013, and I was devouring a cheeseburger in a Chatsworth, California, franchise of a certain multinational fast food conglomerate which shall remain nameless. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed a crazed looking clown walking in my direction. Wearing a costume of bright yellow and red, and giant shiny shoes, he seemingly fit into the surroundings, but it didn't take long to see that something wasn't quite right. His costume was trailed by long, tattered, hippie fringe that was dirty from scraping the floor (and most likely the alley behind the restaurant), and more alarmingly his face was caked in ghostly make up that looked like it had been smeared on with a putty knife. My first thought was that he looked like Skeletor as a member of Uriah Heap. Taking a seat in my booth, he informed me that his name was Ronald Osborne, and he that he was familiar with my oddity rock band Rosemary's Billygoat. He was a fan of the band, and said he had a concept I might appreciate, something he termed "drive-thru metal." Some of the delinquent kids who worked for the franchise had been allowing him and a cast of characters named Slayer Mac Cheeze, Grimalice, and the Cat Burglar, to perform secret rock shows in the bunker-like basements of the local restaurants.

But the time had come, he said, to bring drive-thru metal up from the "underground," and he asked if I would consider becoming the manager of his band. I asked him what the act was called, and proclaimed with pride, "MAC SABBATH!" I barely had time to gather up what was left of my faux food before the restaurant's manager, apparently annoyed both by the disheveled clown and the content of our conversation, came over and forcefully assisted us out onto the street. As we hit the sidewalk, I looked over at Ronald, watched him brush the dust of cold fries, sodium chloride and GMO remnants of my UN happy meal from his grease-smeared clown suit, and couldn't help but think there was something special, perhaps even great, about the man. He invited me to one of these secret shows, and two nights later I was sitting in the basement of a fast food restaurant in the San Fernando Valley, my eyes and taste buds tingling to a new sensation. Drive-thru metal was real, and talk about a feast for the senses! Black Sabbath's music, hilarious fast food lyrics, smoldering clown heads with laser eyes, a giant purple gumdrop bass player, and Tony Iommi with a giant cheeseburger head. I was confused, amazed, and dare I say it, can't ever remember feeling so………happy! I told Ronald that yes, I would love to manage his band. It wasn't going to be easy—nothing ever is with a disturbed clown and a band of Monsanto mutants who refuse to reveal their identities because they think they came here from a wormhole in space time direct from 1970. But whoever they are and however they got here, they're here now and they're ready, so pull up to the window and check your order, because I am proud to present the world's newest concept in entertainment, the culinary disgrace that is MAC SABBATH!

American punk band formed in Chicago, Illinois in the mid-1980s as "The Suburban Nightmare".
Tiltwheel
Tiltwheel
Tiltwheel is an American punk rock band from San Diego, formed in 1991 by Damon Way (who would later go on to become the co-founder of DC Shoes), Bob MacPherson & Aaron Regan. Joined shortly afterwards by current frontman and guitarist Davey Quinn, Tiltwheel recorded their first demo with Damon on vocals. Following general dissatisfaction with the results and disharmony within the band, Damon was “sacked” and Davey took over vocal duties leading to the Tiltwheel sound still heard nearly two decades later.
The coming years saw many line up changes and personal tragedies including the death of bassist Jarrod Preston Adams in a car accident in 2002 which lead the band close to breaking up. With only Davey remaining a constant throughout the band’s recorded history, Tiltwheel have released a number of 7” singles and appeared on numerous compilation albums across many labels in the US and abroad. 1999 saw the release of the first “proper” Tiltwhel album Hair Brained Scheme Addicts which, while the ever self-critical Davey was unhappy with the production, was well received and became a minor punk classic amongst those in the know. The band are exceptionally passionate about their punk roots, with Davey having even been accused of deliberately sabotaging any potential popularity the band may have found (a claim he vehemently denies) by taking more than a decade to release a follow up album with 2010's The High Hate Us.
Characterised by Davey’s raw vocals, the band’s driving melodic hooks (drawing obvious comparison to Leatherface and Jawbreaker) and a fondness for excessive drinking and bleak introspection, Tiltwheel are a hugely popular band in the punk underground. Most of their material was, however, released in very limited quantities and has become increasingly hard to obtain in recent years. Several releases have subsequently been reissued by labels such as Razorcake Records and A.D.D. Records to meet continued demand.
Davey is currently an active member of the bands Too Many Daves, Bloodbath & Beyond and (along with existing Tiltwheel bassist J. Wang), Dan Padilla.
