What is Napoli sauce?

Firstly, thanks for your question.

It's basically a type of tomato based pasta sauce. I doubt it has anything specifically to do with Naples and is more likely an Australian misnomer.

It might be what is called Italia sauce here in Sweden...most likely made of Dutch tomatoes, put in glass yar in eastern Europe, and manufactured by a company in Denmark *lol*

Nah, it's a part of the body of the cow that tends to get cooked for a long time until it's all fally-aparty and delicious. The title is definitely misleading. I can't actually tell you what part of the cow it comes from though.

Ah ok I suppose there wouldn't be much meat on a cow cheek.

It is actually the cheek muscle from a cow. Now I want beef. I got stuff for beef tacos, but I'm missing a couple of ingredients and my wife is out late tonight anyway, so I think it'll be a turkey sandwich for me.

I was thinking about the cheek of a fish, which is really nice, and forgot that beef cheeks are also cheeks because there's another meat that is called something that it's not and that's where I got my wires crossed. Bonus points if anyone can name what it is. 

Whenever I feel strange about eating beef cheeks I just turn the other cheek because I don't want to bite off more than I can chew. Sorry, just some cheeky puns there...

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
