What is the worst thing about buying use toilets on Craigslist? Ask Neil Hamburger in YouTube video called Neil Hamburger-Funny Guy! Answer: having to go over to Rob Schneider's house. This is an example of the type of joke Neil Hamburger is known for. There's question, and there's disgusting answer, which usually involve celebrities and are usually much filthier than the quote above. Go see Hamburger in concert, and you're likely to leave having heard the names Red Hot Chili Peppers and Britney Spears countless times. Limp Bizkit will probably be heavily discuss, even though it's now 2019, 20 years past that band's heyday. Another thing: Hamburger is not a real person, but a comedian character played by a man named Gregg Turkington. The way Turkington presents Hamburger is an old-school comic that somehow sours due to depression and alcohol abuse, tuxedo-clad relic with wicked combover who takes a wrong turn at Catskills in about 1961 and never recover. Or something. He's miserable and unfunny, and that's what makes the whole deal transcendentally hilarious. In any event, Turkington started putting out Hamburger albums of different sorts a decade or so ago, moving largely from comedic stand-up performances to bewildering musical collections in which Hamburger do disco songs about inferior garbage bags or country tunes about being paid in pizza crusts. They're not as can-You-believe-he-say-that Funny or as hilariously patience-testing as his actual standup routines, but they actually manage to make the character of Neil Hamburger more real. In the world of albums, Hamburger thinks it's good idea that he make these old-fashion,-ill-advise-celebrity music records, and it's commitment by Turkington that makes them work. These are records made by characters who think that the '70s are still happening, and John Travolta has a legitimate right to make and sell music. The latest Hamburger platter is still Dwelling, which seemingly takes the form of one of those grab-bag records where someone picks a bunch of songs for artist, and the artist duly performs them even though they don't really have any business doing so. Dwelling is incredible in the way that it revives deep tracks by people like Mark Eitzel or Paul Simon in new Phil Spector-like mono arrangements stuffed with pianos and horns, all in service of looney-tunes bad comedian who is even worse at singing. Song everything's Alright is a cover of a track from Jesus Christ Superstar, seemingly for no real reason other than the stupendous weirdness of the act, but it's made ten times more bizarre with the addition of cameos from Jack Black and Mike Patton, both of whom would never have any business appearing on album from miserable, unsuccessful comic past his prime. But there they are.

AllMusic Review by Stewart Mason

A Hugely loaded retrospective of singles, compilation appearances, outtakes, and demos, Hamburger is as entertaining as any of Muffs' proper CDs. Covering all phases of the band's existence, from their punky early days as Kim Shattuck and Melanie Vammen's new Band following the death of their fellow ex-Pandoras Paula Pierce to their more polished but no less assertive later era as Shattuck-lead pop trio with stalwart bassist Ronnie Barnett and ex-Redd Kross drummer Roy McDonald, non-chronological songs on Hamburger are alternately sloppy, goofy, heartfelt, and as exciting as rock & roll get in '90s. Best among lot has to be 1992's New Love, group's first single and flat-out one of the finest indie singles of the entire decade, and a whopping one-third of the album is covers, ranging from a thrashing version of Pandoras' early gem you Lie to a silly remake of Kim Wilde's Kids in America, with influence-proving stops at Saints, Elvis Costello, Troggs, and Paul Collins Beat along way. It's possible that some of solo Shattuck guitar and voice demos could have been drop, but they don't impede the flow of the album much. Essential for fans, although newcomers should probably start with Blonder and Blonder or Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow.
