Corndogorama 2008 playlist (part I): Of corndogs and kings

Mmmm, corndogs. Who can resist that tasty summertime treat — a mystery-meat hot dog all wrapped up in a blanket of fried batter? Vegetarians, maybe (though for the lacto-ovos among us, there are these lovely substitutes).

Luckily, this weekend Lenny's Bar will host the 12th annual Corndogorama where they'll be serving up plenty of those meaty lollipops (it sounds dirty, but they really are kind of like lollipops with that whole edible item on a stick business). Oh, and there will be tons of local bands.

2008 marks the "Year of the Mustard King" for Corndogorama. In honor of this regal festival, we have taken a smattering of songs and crafted some sample packs for you, the beloved readers. Think of them as the musical version of those fast food condiment packets that are currently overheating in your glove compartment ... you know, only better.

For the rest of this week, we'll post a new playlist with a delicious mustard theme. Each playlist will feature six songs from some local acts playing at this year's Corndogorama.

Today, we're taking a special look at English mustard.

English mustard is usually found as a powder and sold in small tins. However, it is also available prepared, a form that looks deceptively like our yellow mustard. Do not be fooled! English mustard lacks the tang of its American counterpart. Instead, it is a horseradish-style spicy condiment (though it actually contains no horseradish).

So, in honor of the somewhat quirky powdered form and the totally unexpected prepared style, we have created the Corndogorama English Mustard playlist — six songs that are also tasty ... and quite unique.

The tracklisting:

1. Dan Deacon - Bows and Buttons

2. Judi Chicago - Jack Your Box

3. Graboids - Tremolo

4. Abandon the Earth Mission - Mink in the Snow

5. Bellcurve - Eyes Wide Shut

6. Noot D'Noot - Fire King
