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

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.
