2 Assholes Talking Music #106 w/ Triguna

Our big Halloween episode and we're joined by special guests Noah and Evan from Triguna. Insanely talented prog/tech/death/brutal fill-in-the-blanks band from the Chicago suburbs. We're talking about their new EP, Candied Lemons, they dropped over the summer, the overall unique sound of the band, some horror movie trivia, vocal frying techniques, and more. Since it's Halloween we busted out the Fake or Real: Horror Movie edition and short horror movie quiz. Big thanks to Noah and Evan for traveling out in the cold rain and letting us bug them for a little bit and thanks to the rest of Triguna for making some truly eclectic metal. Do not sleep on this band!!!

2 Assholes Talking Music #105

One of my favorite things about doing this show is getting everything prepared just right before we open the mics only to have it completely derail once we turn on said mics. Tonight was one of those shows. We're a little short on news tonight so decided to just fold up the show and have a good ol' fashioned rant session. Granted, we did manage to fit a few stories in like James Hetfield going back to rehab, Kanye making the switch to gospel, and an interesting study in music listening habits across the globe. Well, after that. Let's just say the drinks were flowing and we got a little long winded. Everything from how old white people are ruining social media, millenials getting blamed for everything, toxic nostalgia, people who say stupid shit like, "every one is offended these days" and a few other gems.

However, we did manage to right the ship at the end of the show and squeeze in some great Chicago punk from the band Cuddle Riot. Buckle up because it's a bumpy fucking ride!!

2 Assholes Talking Music #104

We're alive!!! After what seemed like our longest break in show history the stars aligned and we turned the mics back on for another amazing show. Just Jim and Ryan this week as we shake off the dust and get back in the groove. We kept things fairly simple tonight and did what we do best, roast the week in music news. But wait, there's more!! We've been getting a lot of music submissions lately and figured it was time to start putting some stuff on the broadcast. We got a nice little hat trick for you guys tonight with great tunes from Chicago punk rock outfit Death and Memphis, some alternative hip hop from Missouri with Piston Honda, and we close out of DJ PhyEdison. If you happened to catch the original botched episode of #104 PhysEd was our guest but due to a computer glitch we had to scrap the audio. Either way we're super stoked to be back with you guys for cold beers and lots of great music. Cheers!!

2 Assholes Talking Music #103

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!!

2 Assholes Talking Music #102

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!!

2 Assholes Talking Music #101 w/ Mungion

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!!!
