Richard Cheese – Lounge Against The Machine


Buy Now!

America’s loudest lounge singer Richard Cheese performs swingin’ Vegas versions of rock, rap, and Top 40 hits, “swankifying” contemporary songs into traditional pop vocal standards. Cheese has released 6 albums and has sold more than 100,000 CDs, starting with his 2000 debut CD, “Lounge Against The Machine.” The hardest working Dick in show business has played sellout shows around the world, from New York to New Orleans, from Las Vegas to London, from Hollywood to Honolulu. He’s made appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, CNN, MTV, Fox News Channel, and NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly as the house band. With his swanky jazz trio, his tiger-striped tuxedo, and his enormous microphone, Richard Cheese presents the perfect mix of music, martini, and madcap!

Excerpt from AllMusicGuide.com album review by Alex Henderson

…Richard Cheese has a good laugh at the expense of lounge music on Lounge Against the Machine. But this goofy CD doesn’t butcher Tony Bennett or Frank Sinatra; instead Cheese turns his attention to mostly alternative rock hits of the ’90s. In Cheese’s hands, everything from Nirvana’s “Rape Me,” Garbage’s “Only Happy When It Rains,” and Radiohead’s “Creep” to Rage Against the Machine’s “Guerilla Radio” and Limp Bizkit’s “Nookie” gets a lounge makeover. The songs’ angst-ridden lyrics and Cheese’s frivolous, Vegas-minded arrangements make for odd, ironic contrasts, and that’s exactly what the singer is going for. In addition to lampooning lounge music, Cheese is laughing at the abundance of angst that one hears in a lot of alternative rock…
