20 Buck Spin

At the Speed of Grind

We have some long-awaited follow-ups this week!  Well, we haven’t been really been “waiting” for two of them, but Brian has been anxiously waiting almost five freakin’ years for the third.  The question we are here to answer, though, is, “Are any of them worth the wait?”

An Ice Planet Would Feel Nice Right Now

It is hot as Hell where your hosts reside, and it’s not gonna let up too much this week.  So we suggest sitting int he AC, listening to this podcast, then listening to all the albums we talk about…well, the ones we rate well.  Oh, and drink cold beer (and water).

A Last Look to 2017

Since new music (we are actually interested) in will be released soon, this will be the last episode solely dedicated to 2017’s Shit We Missed. If there is anything else we really should go back to, please let us know, and we’ll work it in later.  Also, PA was second state to enter the union, so they are this week’s Bands Across America feature!

Shit We Missed: Part 1

Happy New Year freaks!  Another year is in the books and 2017 will most certainly be, um, interesting on a number of fronts.  But before we get into any new things, we have to look back on some shit we missed.  You should have known this was coming…it’s a tradition here on the Sideshow!

Are they albums you loved from last year that we completely missed?  Let us know in the comments so we can check them out!

Sh!t We Missed: Rule of Thirds

We told you the year starts of slow, didn’t we?  So, we have some more goodies from 2015, and this time we have a bunch of finds from scouring Bandcamp! We also have that big, colorful release that ended up on just about everybody’s year end list despite the fact those lists came out before the album did.

Oh, and I almost forgot!!  We have a guest host!!  No, it’s not Kyle.  This one is less experienced in some of the more extreme forms of Metal and Hardcore, so we take a few minutes to teach him a thing or two.  Pay attention because maybe you’ll learn something too.  (Conversely, you may think we’re wrong and have to teach us something. That’s what the comment section is for.)
