This week we talk to Joshua Toomey of the Talk Toomey Podcast about playing in Primer 55, almost playing in Pressure 4-5, and interviewing Wes Borland on his podcast Talk Toomey
Also, we revisit KISS and their 1983 single Lick It Up, their first appearance without makeup and what counterintuitively helped reignite their career.
Music We Like: KISS - Destroyer, Artimus Pyle - Fucked From Birth, Bad Wolves - Disobey, A$AP Rocky - Testing
This week Michael "Matchbox" Muñoz joins me to talk Enrique and his massive hit "Bailamos" and it's weird relationship with Wild Wild West, including a music video tie-in and a gushing review from Will Smith himself.
Plus: old online news copy and all the cringe-y wordplay that entails, lyrics about defiant, life-threatening dancing, and some of the most bizarre youtube comments we've ever had

This week I talk “Seein Red’” with Nick Guenzler (@TerminalRadness) by Unwritten Law and not Chevelle
We remember how the vast majority of us were tricked into thinking this band was punk, the various physical altercations between the lead singer and his bandmates, and the lazy-yet-bizarre music video featuring 5 clones of the singer making out with 5 clones of his girlfriend.
Music We Like: BAMBARA - Shadow on Everything, and Iceage - Beyondless
This week Cahn rejoins me to FINALLY cover another member of the Big Four: Megadeth, and their ultra-literal "Train of Consequences."
How much of this song is about horse racing? Did their drummer ever figure out how the rotating room effect works? Did Paul Schaffer ever get to shred on harmonica with another metal band? I'm afraid this episode raises more questions than it answers.
Music We Like: Sleep - The Sciences, J Cole - KOD, Goastsnake - Flower of Disease, DJ Dione - Pain Till I Die, and Megadeth
