Drummer Martin Atkins — who manned the kit in Public Image Ltd., Ministry, Pigface and Killing Joke, among other groups — today posted this absolutely brilliant video in which he uses one of the replica film canisters that housed PiL’s 1979 opus Metal Box as a cake pan to bake fudge brownies.
We won’t spoil the ending — Do they turn out? Are they absolutely delicious? — but the whole clip, brought to our attention by one of our readers, is a hoot. It’s soundtracked by The Damage Manual’s cover of Metal Box track “Memories,” and labeled “attempt #1,” which begs the question: Is there a sequel in the offing?
