Tonight we have a very special guest, Jim's brother and all around bad ass American Capt. Jack Somers!!! We sit down for a few beers and roast the week in music news and get all the details on what Jack is doing to help veterans across the country with his multiple business ventures. From helping relocate families when military spouses have to move and helping small business veterans get their companies up and running. Dude can do it all!! I'm surprised we even got through this show. Waaaay too many beers and laughs were hard, such a great night catching up and talking shit. Our game for tonight is Fake or Real featuring bands from the upcoming Lollapalooza festival this summer. Big thanks again to Jack for taking time out on his trip home to screw around with Jim and me. Cheers!!
We switched gears tonight and decided that instead of music we'd talk a little Hollywood. We had the pleasure to spend some time with an old friend and actress, Kelsey Collins Keener!! She gave us an inside look on what it takes to make it in L.A., her time on Arrested Development, her upcoming movie "Paradise Cove", and I can't really remember what else because we might have drank too much. Thank again to Kelsey for putting up with our shit for a few hours. The 2 Assholes wish her nothing but success and good health in the future. Cheers!!
This past weekend we snuck in back stage and had a quick chat with the boys from Mungion!! They were nice enough to take a few minutes before going on stage and putting on one of the best shows I've seen in recent memory. Seriously, they blew the ass off that place!!
Joe Re and Sean Carolan join us for the first half and Matt Kellen and Justin Reckamp jump in a little later. We talk about the new album Ferris Wheel's Day Off, the story behind the song Basketball, Sean's all-time all power forward starting 5, local beers, and more. We even talked them in to a round White Boy Theater before they split. Big thanks and much love to the entire Mungion crew for having us out and for the insane show. Cheers!!

For our 100th episode tonight we're joined by our friends in STARKILL!!! Parker, Sarah, and Shaun stopped by to talk about their new album, GRAVITY, which is available for pre-order NOW. We get into all details about that, the upcoming North American tour, they teach us how to growl, we talk video games, and a bunch of other stuff. We wrapped it up with a round of Guess That Video and a sneak peek at a brand new track off the new album. Oh and there was alcohol involved. I feel like at this point that goes without saying. That and so much more tonight on a brand new episode of 2 Assholes Talking Music. Big thanks and much love again to Starkill for taking time out of their hectic schedule to chat with us. We love you guys and hope nothing but the best with this new album. Cheers!!!

Our WTF Band for tonight is an obscure '70s era gem for the diehard kazzo fans out there. We close it out with a do not miss round of Fake or Real.
Just Jim and Ryan in the studio tonight, keeping things low key while we gear up for our 100th episode and nurse the hangover from ep.#97 w/ Starkill. Tonight we're drinking cheap beer and ripping the week in music news. On the docket for evening is Iron Maiden telling the Rock Hall of Fame to piss off, new line of beer from Opeth, an actual scientific study on people who listen to death metal, the new Slipknot single, the story behind Pearl Jam's "Jeremy", Maroon 5 is picked for the Super Bowl halftime show, the Ja Rule/50 Cent beef continues and more.

We've been trying for months and we finally convinced STARKILL to join us in the lab for a night of debauchery!! Parker, Tony, Shaun, and Sarah stopped by for some Q&A, lots of drinking, and some Halloween themed games. We covered everything from the asshatery of sound scans to the new album to Parker's high school ska band and how each member made their way into the band. Well, there's a lot of stuff in between so don't miss a second of what the reviews are already calling the most talked about podcast of 2018. Not sure if that's true but we're going with it.
We treated the band to some Halloween trivia and a round of FAKE OR REAL: The Horror Movie Edition and feature some music off their the upcoming album. The 2 Assholes want to thank everyone, including friend of the show, producer Matt Nitz, for stopping by and spending some time with us and letting us make everyone uncomfortable for a few hours. Keep an eye out for the new STARKILL album and in the meantime go out and celebrate their back catalogue because it will blow your socks off. Oh and we can't forget about Spencer, aka Spen-Goolie. He wasn't able to make the show but he was with us in spirit. Cheers and enjoy the show!!!
