‘If you don’t like the Beer Nuts now, you’ll hate them later’ – Beer Nuts end career, eat sub sandwiches (NSFW) (Episode 191)

Chicago’s favorite purveyors of bacchanalia, The Beer Nuts, are playing their final show on Halloween night this year. Before they call it a day, they jump in the Mazda to tell stories that can’t be repeated at work or in uptight company. Seriously: NSFW, and not for delicate ears.

We grabbed some amazing subs from the “very Chicago” Bari Italian Subs (1120 W Grand Ave #1, Chicago, IL 60642) and discussed:

  • The Beer Nuts album “Can’t Say No” couldn’t be released in the present day.
  • A horrible “Car Con Carne first” happens within minutes of recording. It was  horrific. It required opening the “fog roof.”
  • Beer Nuts history, starting with Joe getting kicked out of Ministry.
  • The intense heat of Bari’s hot giardiniera.
  • The Beer Nuts pulled a “bait and switch” on Car Con Carne.
  • Joe was given a list of things he couldn’t say on the podcast. It wasn’t honored.
  • “Rock and roll should be dangerous”
  • The Beer Nuts’ record deal with Hollywood Records. It was a brief experience.
  • Stripper stories.
  • The worst nacho platter in the history of food.
  • The band pre-gamed with Icehouse beer before the podcast.
  • The beginning of what became the Double Door Halloween shows.
  • That time Herb played poker with Jimmy Chamberlin…
  • “Have you ever played sober?”
  • Herb’s on-stage “ghosting” where he was so drunk he just left the stage.
  • The Beer Nuts’ break up may actually save some lives.
  • Show memories: Herb’s choice comment at the Viper Room,
  • “Herb spilled a beer on a porn star at Motorhead.”
  • A horrible, horrible story about an adult accessory. Again, this episode is very NSFW.
  • Too much conversation about Billy Squier.
  • The hauntings of Liar’s Club.
  • The Local H video shoot in the Liar’s Club basement.
  • When the band thought we were done recording, they shared one final rock and roll story.
