New Richard Cheese album

Richard Cheese has released a "best of" album, The Sunny Side of the Moon. I was given a copy yesterday by Cheese's alter-ego, Mark Davis, a former Phoenician who I've known since grade school but hadn't seen in person for a few years. I've listened to most of the tracks (and have all of his other albums, Lounge Against the Machine, Tuxicity, I'd Like A Virgin, and Aperitif for Destruction), and it's a better deal than most "best of" albums. There's the standard bonus track not found elsewhere, but there are also several new "big band" re-recordings (completely new versions) and a couple of remixes. And it sounds like he may be doing some shows again in the near future.

Mark has another project in the works, Revolution Central, but he hasn't been able to spend much time on it lately, so there's still a lot of those annoying "coming soon"-type pages.
