    Episode 58 - One Hot Redux Part 3

    To quote Stan Bush from Transformers: The Movie - 'Dare to keep all your Dreams alive'. The Nay-sayers said they wouldn't dare to do another three episodes on One Hot Minute. The Yay-sayers always believed. The Brothers wrap it up again with OHM, Falling into Grace, Shallow be Thy Game and Transcending.

Golden Content

Great podcast from the 2 Townsend Brothers. Not only talking about the band formed in early 1980s, Red Hot Chili Peppers, but providing humour, ambassadorships and beer reviews along the way. I’ve also heard that their drum ambassador is SUPER handsome!

@JonnieGitAhhr ,

Insightful & amusing Chili Pepper chat!

Two knowledgeable, humorous and sometimes tipsy brothers chat with immense insight, passion and hilarity about the greatest live band in the multiverse.
However, such merriment is derived from their frequent, highly amusing asides, that I’m sure even non-Chili Pepper fans would enjoy this.

Pzung ,

They win in the long run

In the bothers’ capable stewardship the Chili’s bass turns into voice, rhythm into discourse and melody itself into conversation. These are the songs of the Chili Peppers turned four dimensional.

Oh, and, this is bollox talking of the highest order.
