Less Than Jake frontman Chris DeMakes his decision on who had the best week in May 1978, 1988 or 1998!
Welcome back everyone for another retro battle of epic proportions! This week we are joined by one of the coolest guys in the music business, Chris DeMakes of Less Than Jake! Having gotten to see Less Than Jake in concert several times, this was an absolute treat. Finally, a musician tells us a story from the road that he's never divulged before; and that's just the tip of the iceberg for this episode! Strap on your seatbelts, it's another week experience! Let's take a look at our contestants, and the eras they will be fighting for! First up, Mike Ranger throws on his Mr. Kotter afro and goes way back to late May 1978. Smack dab in the middle, Mancrush sports his best Chris DeMakes' mullet, with a heavy helping of late May 1988. And rounding out the competition this week, Marc James got his tips frosted and his butterfly clips, and heads back to late May 1998!
With all of the stuff Chris has going on these days, it's a shock he had time to swing the gavel. Chris DeMakes a podcast, Chris DeMakes a book, Chris DeMakes a solo project, Chris DeMakes a tour, and Chris DeMakes us all howl on this episode! Check out all of the stuff Chris has coming out! But in the meantime, you may hear something in this episode about our brand new death metal band with Chris DeMakes, Mancrush's childhood memories, a TV show that almost has the initials HPV, naughty nurses, nursery rhymes for the hearing impaired, Marc goes dark, the 70s version of Hanson, a solo effort DeMakes hates, not C. Thomas Howell, Mandy gets dissed, dudes with anger issues, Mancrush goes to the movies with mommy, Chris Farley's forgotten gem, coed naked grand theft auto, David Lee Roth or Sammy Hagar, strippin' for a whippin', I'm fat but you're ugly, the heroic Terenzi brothers, bootleg bears, blasts from the past, punk rock, and sorry our live stream died abruptly! All this week and more!
