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!!

"During a recent European run, our friend Paul McGuire of Obscenery Films traveled with the band and captured glimpses of what day-to-day life on the road is like for Cattle Decapitation and spoke with the members as they reflected on years of touring and what their future holds. The result is an entertaining, humorous and informative documentary that shows the band as a live entity and also what goes on during their down time on tour; play-throughs, interviews, concert chaos, Euro-tourism and more. We hope you enjoy it!"
