Gentlemen

Amazing starting this episode off with Afghan whigs ! Thanks for always turning me on to a new band and keeping me up on new hardcore bands .

The Podcast I didn’t know I needed....

Found A2G roughly 2 months ago and now never miss an episode. I’ve dipped in and out of hardcore since 1995 but now more than ever I find myself listening to the music as A2G has re-inspired me. Pat, Tom and Bob...with their hot takes on music and band culture keep me laughing and coming back. Much respect. Hop on board with their Patreon for even more sick content as well.

Indispensable

Tom, Pat and Bob cover hardcore music past and present, with hilarious “hot takes,” lots of “energy” and plenty of “cheat codes.” Occasionally they pick a year in the past and talk about hardcore records that came out during that year, which I’m particularly fond of. A+
