King Tuff may claim to be a “bad, bad, bad thing” on one of the best songs of the year, but even the reigning patriarch of deliciously sleazy rock’n’roll has a soft spot for a cute dachshund. The man otherwise known as Kyle Thomas participated in Burger Records’ recent (sold-out!) The Wiener Dog Comp, and his contribution has just surfaced online (via Stereogum)
An American Tail is a classic 1986 animated film by Don Bluth (and executive produced by Steven Spielberg) in which a young mouse named Fievel immigrates to the U.S. with his Russian mouse family. Essentially, if you grew up in the 80s/90s and you didn’t see this film, your childhood was lacking. In the gooey center of the movie is “Somewhere Out There”, a song King Tuff delivers with completely sweet, nasally sincerity.
