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.

We're celebrating our 7th birthday tonight with some great local brew from Scorched Earth and ripping the week in music news!! We'll be off the next couple of weeks so we decided to just keep it simple. Lots to cover this week like the death of Aretha Franklin, elderly men escaping to Walken Open Air Festival, Rihanna being named Most Influencial Artist of the 21st century, Roger Daltry on the state of rap, Conan nixes musical guests, and more! We feature some music from our friends in Thy Antichrist, play White Boy Theater, and close it out with Jim on the turntables laying it down. We finally got on Instagram and Spotify so check that out too. Cheers!!

Tonight we'red joined by local heavy hitters Wings Of Severance ahead of their headlining show at KC's Cabin. We've been wanting to get these guys on the show for sometime and it was worth the wait. We had a blast with the boys drinking cheap beer, talking shop, and they even agreed to a round of Guess That Video. They weren't half bad either. We also feature some music from their latest release, Welcome to the Afterlife. Make sure you pick up a copy of the album on iTunes, Amazon Music, Spotify, and Google Play and grab some gear over at wingsofseverance.com
We want to thank all the guys again for hanging out and putting up with our shit for a few hours and helping us drink all the beer. From what I remember it was a great time!!

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!!

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.

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.

This is not for the faint of heart. You are about to enter the world of a madman.
Annihilation Gravy is the soundtrack of a gun toting psycho that eliminate anything and anyone who gets in his way. Nobody is safe once the gun is cocked and the finger is on the trigger. His blood lust can't be controlled and can only be satisfied once the bullets start flying. Track after track of blistering death metal paves the way to total annihilation.

This week we're joined by Bridge for a quick jam session and a little interview afterwards. Bridge has been around for many years and has played many shows. A few line up changes later they're back to their core trio and have never sounded better. Like a fine wine, Bridge has aged well and if you take enough of it you'll be left in a blackout trying to find your car keys. The guys were nice enough to let us hang out at their jam spot for the night and record some tunes and screw around. Topics include musical influences, favorite British Invasion band, why Chris Cornell is better than everyone, and more. Big thanks to Charlie, Adam, & Paul for the beers and all the stupid laughs. Can't wait to do it all again.

A little short on stories this week due to back to back shows but we're here to roast the week in music news and crush some beers. Lots of news to cover this week and we also debut a new game, Tweet or Twit. Stories inclube Mickey Free confirming the Prince/Charlie Murphy True Hollywood story, son of Metallica bassist Robert Trujullo joins Korn, Scott Stap can see dead rock stars in his mirror, a shrimp named after Pink Floyd, Brittney is leaving Vegas, Paul Oakenfold plays on top of Mt. Everest, and more. Since we're short on news this week we decided to double on the games and also debut a new one as well. Start it off with White Boy Theater followed up by Tweet or Twit. A new game where Jim has to guess if the offensive tweets Ryan is reading are fake or real. 
We close out the show with some killer sounds from Arizona's very own, Spafford!! Our buddies Mungion are supporting them on the road now so we figured what better time to show some love for an incredible band that will melt most part of your body clean off.

Today we were on location in the home of Bill Murray's "Groundhog Day" hanging out with Marc Esses & DJ New Vintage, one of the coolest local bands we've had the pleasure to cover in recent months. A DJ-drum duo that is taking the scene by storm and leaving empty bottles and tired dancing feet in their wake. This past weekend they took part in the Shamrocked Fest so we cracked a few beers and a couple of mics before the party started. Well, technically it never stopped from the night before. If you're in and around the Chicago land area keep an eye out for these guys because I guarantee you won't see anything like this!!

2 Assholes Talking Music #67

This is our official last show of 2016. In years past we've tried and failed to do a full on wrap up of the year in music so this year we decided to just kind of half ass it. We start off with some quick news like Phil Anselmo apologizing for his white power outburst, Joe Bonamassa attacking a bouncer with a rare guitar, Beyonce & Disturbed being nominated in the same category at the Grammy Awards, the highest selling CD of the year, the most viral videos of 2016, the top 3 songs of the year according to the Top 40 charts, our favorite albums/artists of the year, some really cool isolated vocal tracks, and our favorite/most hated Christmas songs. 

After all the news we bust our another round of White Boy Theater. Ryan Actually gets a few right this time. Amazing!! We close out the show with a few choice cuts from our favorite bands/songs of the year. Big thanks to everyone out there that took the time to listen to the show this year. Your support means more than you'll ever know to us. Jim & Ryan have some big things planned for 2017 like lots of guests and live acoustic jam sessions from some of Chicago's biggest local and independent bands. Stay tuned and keep supporting pirate radio!!!!

He's played in the Jerry Garcia Band and alongside an incredible roster of storied jazz musicians. His music is available on iTunes or you can catch him live at any coffeehouse or jazz club throughout the city of Chicago.

Halloween Gravy #5

It's our favorite time of the year, Halloween!!! Staying with tradition we've put together another mix that continues the story of the Phantom Killer. If you remember from last year the original Phantom Killer was eventually caught and jailed for his heinous deeds. This year it seems he's spawned a copycat killer and he's wreaking havoc wherever he goes. The Copycat Killer is ruthless in his pursuit for blood and he'll stop at nothing to find his next victim. He could be your co-worker, maybe a neighbor. Maybe he's in your house right now. The Copycat Killer is driven by rage, a rage that runs so deep it can only be quenched with brutality.

The Secret Stash is always dedicated to undgerground sounds and there's a lot of noise coming from over in jolly ol' England. Grab a pint or 5 and spin the dial till you land on OI!!

The Gravy Project Vol.1

The Gravy Project Vol.1 will be the first in a series of live mix sessions put together by Jim and I from 2 Assholes Talking Music. We thought it'd be nice to switch things up a bit and break up the monotiny of doing the regular podcast. I guess you could call this kind of a concept mix, everything starts out with a guy sitting down to watch a some TV at the end of the night. As he's flipping through the channels he slowly drifts off into a dreamscape of sounds and music that takes him from one end of the dial to the other. As the music takes over he can't tell if he's wide awake or dreaming. The 2 Assholes Talking Music podcast presents The Gravy Project Vol. 1

After all the talking we cap it off with a mix sequal to our Halloween show from last year. The last mix left off with the phantom killer never being caught and disappearing into the world.

It's been over a month since we've rocked a show and it feels good to be back from hiatus. We get right back into the thick of things with more music news and a new audio clip game called "Porn or People Working Out". Safe to say things get a little x-rated towards the end of the show.

We wrap up the news with a great story about the Jr. high band, Unlocking the Truth, getting signed to a major label record deal. Then we get into the game segment of the show where Jim continues his losing streak. For the music portion of the show we decided to dedicate some space to the lords of jam, Phish.

Switching gears tonight and mixing things up a bit. Instead of me pretending to be a DJ and mix tracks together I got a real bonafied DJ to drop some tracks. None other than one of our very own Assholes, Jim!! If you don't know by know Jim has his own side project, The Vision Project. He's been on the tables for years so I figured it was about time to give him his own episode on the Gravy Podcast. Jim brings his own flavor to the tables and always comes correct. The Vision Project encompasses lots of different sounds but one thing Jim does well is set the mood with some really chill beats and tonight is no different. I can go on and on but I'd rather the tunes do the talking. Open up your mind and let the Vision Project take you on an audio journey.

We decided to brave another round of the Polar Vortex and tough out another show. Did you really think we'd pass up an oppurtunity to rip on the Gramy's? No way. Obviously, we touch on the Grammy's and all it's trainwreck glory but before we dive into that I decided to try out a new game. We don't have a name for it yet but it's something we plan on doing for many episodes to come. I read off a few ridiculous YouTube comments and Jim has to guess what video they are attached to. As far as the music goes I decided to shine some light on a few artistst that deserved to be recognized at an event like the Grammy's. All the songs are off albums that came out in 2013. Turn up the volume and pour yourself another cocktail because it's time for another episode of 2 Assholes Talking Music!

Late Night Gravy #13

Kicking off the New Year with some solid sounds tonight! I want to apoligize ahead of time, I put this together while I was snowed in on New Years Eve so there was lots of beers involved and it might not be the tightest mix in the world. Doesn't matter though cause it's all about rockin' the Gravy!! Threw in a little bit of everything in this episode, some electronic, some hip hop, some old school funk, and lots of Gravy to top it off.

2 Assholes Talking Music #23

Tonight we're celebrating our 2nd birthday, hard to believe we've been doing this for 2 years now. We started off doing this just for fun and it somehow steamrolled into 23 episodes and a listening audience that spans over the entire US and 20+ countries worldwide!! Not bad for a couple of guys sitting around drinking beer on a Friday night. Besides that you're back to our old tricks, making fun of more music news. Tonight we discuss Miley Cyrus at the VMAs, in case you've been living under a rock for the past few weeks. You know, because no one seems to want to talk about it. We hit that along with Eddie Murphy's new album featuring Snoop Lion, the newly released radio playlist for the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V, and the new Nine Inch Nails album. In honor of NIN Jim put together a really solid mix of some of his favorite NIN tracks and I tossed in a couple of tracks at the end to help dot the i's and cross the t's. So grab and beer and join us for another episode of 2 Assholes Talking Music!
