The Artists

1.  HamsandwicH

HamsandwicH is an indie rock band from Ireland that have three studio albums and are scheduled to release another later this year.  While they're sometimes criticized for their generic band name, we think it's the coolest thing ever!

2.  <S>andwich

<S>andwich is a Filipino alternative rock band from the Philippines that has been churning out music as far back as 1999.  Influenced by many different genre, much of their music is hard and fast-paced.

3.  Hot Tuna

Hot Tuna is an American blues rock band formed in 1969, which started as a side project to Jefferson Airplane while Grace Slick recovered from Vocal cord nodule surgery.  Founding members Jorma Kaukonen (guitarist/vocals) and Jack Casady (bassist) are still going strong after all these years.

5.  Cheeseburger

6.  Hamburger

In a story retold on countless publications, Hamburger was formed over a chance meeting at a vegan fast food joint between a couple of band-mates.  What we like to refer to as dreamy sandwich rock, their debut album, Teenage Terrified, was a fine work of artistic craftsmanship.

7.  Hot Club Sandwich

Hot Club Sandwich formed in Olympia, WA after a chance meeting on a front porch.  Every band member gets an opportunity to sing, and gets input on compositions and arrangements to the songs.

8.  Electric Sandwich

Electric Sandwich were formed in Germany late 1969 by four college students in Bonn.  Typical of many Krautrock bands of the era, these drew on a wide range of influences: jazz, blues, psychedelia, etc., and moulded their own fusion with that typically cosmic yet powerful edge.  

For further reference:  Krautrock (also called kosmische Musik, German for "cosmic music) is a broad genre of experimental rock that developed in West Germany in the late 1960s and early 1970s among artists who blended elements of psychedelic rock, electronic music, and avant-garde composition among other sources.

9.  The Heavy Sandwich

There are remnants of this group all over the internet.  Whether it's half-written biographies or an empty, abandoned MySpace page, it makes one wonder what happened to them.  Who were they?  Where did they go?  And why did they disappear?

Of course, maybe the mystery is what makes them so alluring.  So far, we were only able to determine that Heavy Sandwich consisted of 5 guys who started touring together, even before writing songs for their first album.  Over time, they were able to assemble enough songs for an album, released it, and toured some more.  Then suddenly, one day, they disappeared from the internet, never to be seen or heard from again.

10.  Cotto's Club Sandwich

We are still trying to gather information about this band.  So far, the group's only known existance is this song.

That's our Top 10 List of Artists and Bands with Sandwich in the Name.  In the future, we will try to find more great Sandwich Rock bands to add to the list.  

roku singer

Today, we are celebrating what could possibly be the best Hamburger Song ever written.  The name of the song is "Hamburger" and the artist's name is Roku (로쿠).  The tune is a masterpiece in every sense of the word. 

When it comes to sandwich love songs, "Hamburger" is on the Mouth Rushmore of Sandwich Rock. 

Love, Hamburgers, Heartbreak

In the beginning, Roku sings about a special memory he shared with someone eating hamburgers, and how that manifested into a burgeoning romance.  The song continues to build upon this theme up until the very end, when in a weird twist, he basically disavows the person he once loved.  It truly is a fine example of great songwriting.  

As a loyal devotee of sandwiches, the idea of a hamburger representing a symbol of his past love, we feel that's an amazing analogy.  However, as you dive deeper into the lyrics, it begs the question of whether he's talking about a real person or the actual sandwich.  Is it possible the hamburger is the true affection of his love?  

In either regard, we are thanful that Roku introduced this magnificent song into the world.  As a token of our thanks, we decided to do a retrospective of the singer's short body of work, and create a list of Roku's 10 Best Songs.  As he is a relatively new singer, we've decided to include all his music as a bonus, since we could only find 17 songs to his name.

Here is our List of Roku's (로쿠) Top 10 Songs of All-Time (with 7 bonus songs added).

In honor of this artist's love of sandwiches, we want to share two of his best songs. 

The first song may very well be the best Hamburger Song of All-Time.  It contains all the elements of the perfect sandwich song... love, hamburgers, and heartbreak.  Can it get any better than that?  

Hamburger by Roku (로쿠)

The second song is another tear jerker, which is about how he misses the person of his dreams.  And once again, in the video, Roku shows how the memory of a hamburger they shared always echoes through his mind.  

I Miss You by Roku (로쿠)


grilled sendwich shop

GRILLED SeNDWIsH is only a five minute walk from Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall MRT Station (國父紀念館), and it has a variety of different sandwiches, or as they like to say, sendwiches.  As traditionalists, we chose the classic grilled cheese sandwich, and it exceeded expectations.  

The staff was friendly, and the outdoor seating was adequate.  With space around the Sun Yat-sen area at a premium, just being able to sit down to enjoy a meal was pleasant.  


hung rui chen shop

Hung Rui Chen (洪瑞珍) has a sign above their shop that says "Taiwan No. 1 Sandwich", so naturally we wanted to try for ourselves.  However, there was a little problem with the staff and their service.  

Disappointing Customer Service

Long story short, we were sent out into the rain by Hung Rui Chen (洪瑞珍), and we didn't even get to try the sandwich.  It really put a damper on the whole mood.  

Luckily, there was a 2nd sandwich we purchased from another Hung Rui Chen shop in one of our bags.  So, we took the wrapper off at home, and that's the one we used for this review.  Basically, the sandwich was okay, but the service we experienced that day was quite impolite and confusing. 

Last Sandwich On Earth

So, here is the big question:  If I was dying, and I needed to choose my "last sandwich", would I choose one from Hung Rui Chen?

The answer is "No".  But, we have high standards and not every sandwich makes our Last Sandwich List.

To be perfectly frank, the No. 1 sandwich in Taiwan comes from Toasteria Cafe', and Hung Rui Chen (洪瑞珍) would not even be in our Top 10.  I am very curious why they put "Taiwan's No. 1 Sandwich" on all of their advertising, and will update this article if I ever get an answer to that question.  

Ending on a positive note, the restaurant's atmosphere was very pleasant, and the counter and floors were very clean.  I feel safe eating their food, and it seems very sanitary.  


alex hamburger

Alex Hamburger's music takes one back to the smokey pubs and all-night jazz scenes.of yesteryear, where the men sported borsalino hats, and the women wore French foulards with a beret.  There's a single street light on the corner, and only people with the right password are allowed into the pub.  It's the kind of music that sounds better with a fine chardonnay, or even a 20-year old bottle of scotch. 

Alex Hamburger has been a mainstay in the jazz scene for a while, honing her talents as a flutist, singer, and composer.  Her most recent album, And She Spoke, was released in 2021, and has been lauded for it's highly orchestrated and creative arrangments.  


In order to get a better appreciation of her talents, Last Sandwich listened to her last album, along with two previous collaborations with other artists.  Afterwards, we created a list of our Top 10 Favorite Songs by Alex Hamburger.

Sandwich Rock Bands have had it rough.  Due to the pandemic restrictions of the past two years, recording sessions have been cancelled, tour dates post-poned, and album releases have been on hold. 

As a result, a lot of amazing sandwich music has been delayed, so in order to compensate, we've taken the last two years of Sandwich Rock and combined it into one incredible Top 10 List.
