Thanks, Lucky Peach, for bringing our attention to this amazing review of food writer Robert Seitsema’s ’80s band, Mofungo. The review appeared in the June 1986 issue of MATTER. So that’s what Sietsema was doing pre writing about Indian Food, Italian American food history, and cooking with marijuana.
“They’ve [Mofungo] had their intentions misread more often than not. Quite often this was due to the fact that nascent Young Republicans have been hidin’ in many more closets than we really care to admit,” writes MATTER’s Byron Coley. Here’s some other stuff we loved today:
