2 Assholes Talking Music - 2 dudes roasting the week in music news while drinking cheap beer. Outside of the news we have segments called WTF Bands and play a different game each episode like Guess That Video based on all the awful YouTube comments, Fake or Real, and White Boy Theater. You can also find all the Gravy Mixtapes on here spanning just about every genre of music.

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!!

Each year we like to put together an evil mix of music in honor of our favorite holiday, Halloween. In the past years we created a kind of episodic mix following the brutal actions of the Phantom Killer. We figured this year we would do a stand alone mix that strays from the Phantom Killer story line and concentrates more on the music. Halloween Gravy #6 features some hip hop and Jim's dark Drum N' Bass mix from our Friday the 13th show the other week. This mix is the perfect background for handing out candy and scaring the neighborhood kids, the soundtrack to whatever you plan on getting into on the 31st or just put your headphones on in a dark room and drift away into audio psychosis. Happy Halloween!!!!

It's Friday the 13th in October so what better time to rip our Halloween show! We're joined this week by some local musicians, Johnny and Buddy from Party Obvious and Brandon Castino from Stone Rollin' Devils. We kick things off with some weird, WTF news and move into the horror movie discussion. Everything from the movie that scarred the shit out you to being the second person in the human centipede. Trust me, it just gets weird. We see which guest knows the most horror movie trivia and for once this might be a game Jim could win. We wrap things up with Jim on the turntables putting down a creepy Drum & Bass set. Many laughs and many beers were had and at some point the show jumped completely off the rails but that's the way we like it. Big thanks again to Johnny, Buddy, and Brandon for hanging out!!

We'll be taking a few weeks off so we thought we'd just get back to basics for a night with just Jim and Ryan roasting the week in music news. We kick things off with a little public service announcement regarding our buddies in Mungion and their gear heist in Detroit. The band was recently robbed of all their gear, van, and trailer during a stop over in Michigan. Search "Mungion" on Go Fund Me if you'd like to donate to their cause and help them get back on their feet. Or you could catch them on their current N.American tour and by a ticket and some merch. From there it's more news with stories like Chance the Rapper donating two million dollars to the Chicago Public School System, Lil' Wayne's brush with death in Chicago, System of a Down goes jazz, Pharma Bro v/s Wu Tang Clan, Black Metal pop music, a death at Burning Man, what getting goose bumps while listening to music means, and why The Calgary Police says listening to heavy music makes you a nazi. Our game for tonight is another offensive round of TWEET or TWIT and we close out the show with Jim on the turntables puttin' down some sounds.

We're joined by local radio personality/producer Fernando Navarro tonight!! Fernando has seen it all during his time in the industry, from Mancow to the 2 Assholes. Fernando is a perfect fit for the podcast and he doesn't skip a beat once we fire things up and roast the week in music news. This week we cover a Metallica fan who was arrested after peeing on a family during a concert, R. Kelly's sex cult, the death of the Chuck E. Cheese animatronic band, Linkin Park's cryptic message about getting a new lead singer, a death at a kinky sex rave, a street performer who was told to go home and practice by local police, and more!!! We close out the show with Guess That Video and once again Fernando was right in his element. Much love to Mr. Navarro for coming out and hanging out with us for the night. This won't be the last time you hear him on the show. Support pirate radio!

Our special guest tonight is J.B. Bartlett from Chicago's patrons of groove, Waxworks!! J.B. was nice enough to stop by the lab to talk about everything from the upcoming album to Game of Thrones. No spoilers. It's hard to put a finger on Waxworks considering the rotating line-up of talented players. One night they might have a horn section and one night they might have someone on keys. The one constant that remains is their incredible sound be it Julian's thunderous percussions or Frank's amazing voice. We feature a few tracks tonight from their 'Lost At Sea' EP while we await the release of their upcoming full length album. We pepper J.B. with a little of the ol' Q&A and a game of Fake or Real. Big thanks again to J.B. for hanging out with us and fucking around for a little bit.

We're joined by Chicago jam band Bodhicitta for some beers tonight!! Bodhicitta is the perfect example of what happens when four guys pick up their instruments and can all be on the same page. It's the in the pocket jams from a budding band that will hopefully be making noise on the scene for years to come. The guys stopped by the garage for a little bit to talk shop, do some beer tasting, cover the news, and play White Boy Theater. Turns out Ken is really good at it. If you're in and around the Chicago land area keep an ear out for these dudes. This is a live show you want to see. Big thanks to Kyle, Ryan, Alex, & Ken for hanging out and putting up with your shit for a few hours. It's always fun to have a good time with good people.
Check out bohicittamusic.com for more info and upcoming shows or find them on Facebook to see all their wonderful faces!

Tonight we have a few guests in the studio including friend of the show Bradley O. and our guest of honor Justin Lebreck!! Justin is the owner and operator of Waysound Studio in Fox River Grove, IL and the newest member of Modern Day Romeos. Justin has been involved in music and recording since he ran a studio out of his parents basement in high school. Since then he's moved into his own space and records everything from classical music to hip hop. Not to mention he's now part of one of the biggest bands in the Chicago land area. Justin was nice enough to stop by for some Q&A, taste test the new Megadeth beer, and play a round of "Guess That Video" featuring only the most offensive comments YouTube has to offer. We even made him sit through what might be the worst WTF band, Bum Sick, we've featured to date. Seriously, you have to hear this "shit" to believe it. You'll know why I put that in quotes once you hear it. I can't really put into words. We also feature a few bands that have recorded over at Waysound Studio with Justin at the helm. We didn't let the torrential down pour of rain stop us from bringing you more pirate radio so turn it up loud and enjoy!! Thanks again to Justin and Brad for hanging out and crushing some beer cans with us.

Unfortunately, we ran into some technical difficulties that weren't discovered until after the fact so bare with us as the sound quality is not top tier. Nevalra stopped by the lab while laying waste to the Midwest on the their Slash the Summer tour. After I introduced the boys to a Chicago delicacy, Italian beefs, we sat down to talk about everything from conspiracy theories, worst on stage moves, ryder sheets, their least favorite genre of metal, girlfriends on the road, and a lot more. As always we have to play a game so the boys took a crack at "Tweet or Twit" with the loser having to walk to the gig. 
Even if you're not a fan of of black metal or extreme metal this interview hits on all points and has something for everyone. Nevalra is one of the hardest working bands I've ever had the pleasure to meet and call my friends. The amount of work and dedication these guys put into their craft is unrivaled. I'm saying it right now, in another year Nevalra will be one of the biggest names in metal and they most certainly deserve it. Check out nevalra.com for all things satan and links to their social media accounts. It always a trip when these dudes stop in town and this time isn't any different. Tune in and support pirate radio!!!
