On "Lounge Against The Machine," neo-legendary lounge singer Richard Cheese takes the happenin' songs that the kids are listening to these days, and swankifies them with that pop vocal feel. Imagine Frank Sinatra crooning a big band version of "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails, except for the part where Frank is dead. No, indeed, Cheese is alive and well, singing and swinging 16 kooky covers of alternative hits with jazzy arrangements, snazzy vocals, and pizazzy style on a fabulous CD that The Los Angeles Times calls "smooth," Stuff Magazine calls "Catskills-worthy," and Rolling Stone calls "pungent. "

In the grand tradition of CDs like Lounge-A-Palooza and Grunge Lite, Oglio has just released quite possibly the best of the lot--Lounge Against the Machine. With cheesy (no pun intended) covers of all your favorites by groups like Prodigy, Limp Bizkit, Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, this is one of the best CDs of its kind out there. Richard Cheese is made up of Bobby Ricotta on charts and ivories, Gordon Brie on strings and strums, Buddy Gouda on sticks and skins, and the inimitable Cheese on vocals and vodka.
