'Someone's a Car Con ***hole' - Talking punk rock with Daryl Wilson (Bollweevils) and Denis Buckley (88 Fingers Louie)
4 days ago
It's a Chicago punk rock summit as I'm joined by returning guests Daryl Wilson (The Bollweevils) and Denis Buckley (88 Fingers Louie) at Dante's Pizza. Here's what we talk about this week: Is Denis now tied for most-frequently appearing guest on the show? "I have no agenda." Why in the hell did I say Blaze Pizza? It's DANTE'S. And Dante's is sooo much better. I got the lion's share of grease. That's what you get for grabbing from the bottom of the bag. Daryl thinks the grease will be absorbed subcutaneously. He's a doctor. Purell hand sanitizer is the only thing I had on hand to solve the grease problem. Dante's slice of the day scared us. A car almost hit us right at the onset of recording. Jesus Jones gets more "airtime" than they have in 27 years. Full confession: Daryl and I went back for "seconds" the last time we recorded together. The 90s punk scene that birthed The Bollweevils and 88 Fingers Louie (Okay, technically Bollweevils started in '89). The return of Apocalypse Hoboken. I need to work on the liner notes for their album release. "Punk rock is kind of self-destructive in a way... we're all damaged." Denis could have been a fireman, if not for punk rock. "To be clear, I'm going to be hosing off my hands." Not only does the podcast promise to get sexier as it progresses, but Daryl and Denis arrived on **** *** night! "Let the dirt wash over you." Denis and Daryl's board games of choice. We've all been playing Monopoly wrong. Denis and Daryl's first concerts: "Can I include an opera?" "No." Kids going to concerts now vs. kids going in the 80s. Cheap Trick's setlist problem. Daryl to Denis: "You don't pick fights with people you can beat." Fugazi broke up a fight between Daryl and Denis. There's nothing more punk rock than a "Frasier" reference. Favorite movies are discussed: Blues Brothers, Blazing Saddles, Big Trouble in Little China, Truth or Dare. Wait... Truth or Dare? Why I am "dead" to Daryl, and what made Denis call me a "Car Con Asshole." A weird circus bike rode past the Boost Mobile Mazda 3. Damn hipsters. "She Caught the Katy" is one of the best songs in Blues Brothers. Favorite horror movies are discussed. "Alien" makes it to the top of the list. RIP the
