No guests tonight just a normal good fashion show roasting the week in music news and drinking too many beers courtesy of local legends Goose Island!! Lots of stuff to cover tonight like NOFX getting kicked out of their own festival and losing their beer sponsorship, Spotify altering their "hateful content" guidelines, the death of the guitar player from Anal Cunt, Marilyn Manson peed on Korn, Miley Cyrus donates her pee to The Flaming Lips, Jack White jams at a high school, new music from Les Claypool, and the new Puhsa T album cover. Got a great new WTF Band courtesy of Louis Cole from Knower and another round of the whitest game show in town, White Boy Theater!! A big shout out to our sponsor tonight, Somers Family MustKetch. A brand new condiment that tastes like it's spelled, mustard and ketchup in one bottle. Order yours now on Amazon.
Tonight our guest is the founder and lead singer of the band Elephant Gun, the one and only Jared Olson!! Along side of him is good friend of the show and former member of Elephant Gun, Paul Chivari!! We all sat down and had a few beers and talked about the new Elephant Gun album, Eat The House, available now on all streaming services, played some tunes, and promoted the upcoming show at Catapult Records. We asked some dumb questions in between and even snuck in Guess That Video before we closed it all out. Big shout out to our local beer for the night, 2 Brothers, out of Warrenville, IL. and the rest of the crew from Elephant Gun that couldn't make it out.

We had a whole show planned out for tonight but it all kinda got shot to hell. Instead of cracking some beers and roasting the week in music news we deiced to flip the script a bit and crack some beers and rant about a few things that have been bugging us. Mainly, the positives and negatives of social media, people attacking the kids from the school shooting in Parkland, FL and a few other random things. We had a great WTF Band lined up tonight and everything but since things jumped the rails a little bit the majority of the show is us getting drunk and ranting. It's not as bad as it sounds. Or is it?
However, we did manage to wrangle things at the end and pull out a game of TWEET or TWIT and feature a great band, KNOWER. Typically, we've been featuring local music but since we distracted ourselves we changed gears for the evening. We promise that we have lots of great local music scheduled for upcoming shows. Our background music for the evening is a cut off the Chill-hop Essentials Spring 2018 compilation titled, "Otesla". Plus, a shout out to our local brew for the night Tight Head out Mundelin, IL. Very tasty and strong ales that helped fuel our rants for the night.
We're back in the studio tonight after our backstage interview with members of Thy Antichrist after their sold out Chicago show the other weekend. Per usual, the beers are flowing, courtesy of local brewery Scorched Earth, and the music news is ready to be shredded. This week on we got Tommy Lee Twitter beefing with his son, Jeffery Nothing leaves Mushroomhead, the Fyre Festival founder goes down in flames, Migos being sued by their own fans, the underground rave scene in London is back, Liam Gallagher still sucks, the Justin Bieber bomber is sentenced, Fergie's rendition of the National Anthem strikes all the wrong chords, Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard and his new band, and more. We dig into our bag of tricks for another WTF Band and this time is comes to us from the Porno Grind genre. Yes, it sounds like you'd expect. Another round of Fake or Real featuring bands from the last ever VANS Warped Tour. We close out the show with some killer local music from Meat Wave who recently kicked off their spring tour in Chicago this past weekend. Seriously, if you don't know about this band get on top of that. Big thanks to our local beer tonight, Hickster, from Algonquin, IL's very own Scorched Earth Brewing and our sponsor relobase.com. Things get a little, well, drunk I think would be the best way to describe but I know you've come to expect that at this point. Play it loud and proud, it's another episode of 2 Assholes Talking Music!!!
We were able to catch up w/ founder and frontman of Thy Antichrist, Andres"Thy Antichrist 666" Vargas, after their set @ Reggie's in Chicago March 4th. We were a bit unprepared as it all started as just chatting then Andres agreeing to a short interview. It was freezing cold outside and don't mind the El train and the Dark Funeral set in the background. Big thanks again to Andres for talking with us for a few minutes. Also, thank you to Scott "The Wicked One" Eames and Robert "Abyssus" Coronado for talking with us in the noisy ass stairwell. Sorry about the audio quality, jazz night was rippin' next door. You can see that interview on the 2 Assholes Talking Music facebook page and video of Andres' interview is available on YouTube. Cuernos Arriba!!!!!
We'll be taking a break for a few weeks so we wanted to fire off a show before we come back with more guests and general asshatery.
Lots of stuff to cover tonight like Slayer announcing their retirement, Marilyn Manson's drum tech (Jim's friend) getting arrested before a recent show, "Metal" being added to the dictionary, the new Tool album or lack thereof, Wes Scantlin enters rehab, the weird world of animals covering metal songs, the Super Bowl halftime show, and we close it out with the Jack in the Box Snoop Dog stoner meal. Yes, that's a real thing. We'd also like to apologize to the estate of Tom Petty. You'll see what I mean.
Our game for tonight is TWEET OR TWIT since we haven't busted that one out in awhile. We close out the show with some incredible music from local Chicago legends, HOOD SMOKE!!

We're getting ready to close out another year of 2 Assholes Talking Music so we thought we'd keep things simple tonight. Drinking beers and roasting the week in music news. We start things off with an update on the GWAR/Bullsac of Death story from our last show, why Suicide Silence can't and shouldn't catch a break, the leader of Indonesia loves Metallica, Linkin Park getting kicked out of the AMA's after winning an award, Christmas music from DMX, A Perfect Circle kicking fans out of shows for taking pictures, what kind of music psychopaths listen to, Wu Tang Clan sues a dog walking company, and that one time the Beach Boys covered a Charles Manson song. After the news we play White Boy Theater and Ryan's reign of awfulness continues. Last but not least we have some new Christmas music, this is waaaaaay better than the DMX track, from Starkill doing their rendition of "All I Want For Christmas Is You". It's kicks the Mariah Carey version right in the dick!!
Well, tonight started off on a bit of a sour note. We were supposed to have Mark Kloeppel from Misery Index on the phone for an interview but due to some technical difficulties on our end we had to scrap it and reschedule. After we got done crying in our beers we decided to forge ahead and do our normal show. Lots of metal news because well, we planned on tying all that into the interview with Mark. We cover Twiggy Ramirez being accused of rape and getting the boot from Marilyn Manson, GWAR guitarist Bullsac the Jaws of Death is very sick, Buckethead finally reveals why he wears a bucket on his head, new Dime Bag material, highest earning dead celebrities of 2017, Dave Grohl and Kristen Bell rock out, live concerts coming to a flight near you, Every Time I Die is being sued by a fan injured at a show, and more. We have a new WTF Band that is both equal parts offensive and hilarious, another round of Guess That Video, and we close out the show with some new and old music from Misery Index. We promise once we get our shit together we'll have Mark for an interview but till then load up the alcohol and check out the new episode of 2 Assholes Talking Music!!
