Episode 11: The Family Christmas Special

Christmas is a time for family and friends…and beer!

We all met up in Colin’s house to have a little shindig with good food, good beer and good company.

Proper Christmas traditions of playing games, singing and allowing the little ones to stay up late were all observed!


Episode 10: Beer tasting & music chat with New Zealand Beer Collective

The guys get in an expert to teach them and you, the listener, how to taste beer properly.

Joseph Hurst is the Head of Beer for New Zealand Beer Collective. As well being a beer aficianado he also has a fervent love of music.


Episode 9: He’s a bit of a Barley Wine

We get out of the rehearsal studios and go to the pub.

No Barley wine was drunk during the recording of this episode. We go to the pub to chat about the beers we’ve ordered, the music they’re listening to at the moment and also try to come up with a band name.


Episode 8: I like Genesis

DeWolff at Shoreditch Blues Kitchen

The band go on an outing to Blues Kitchen Shoreditch to see Dutch psychedelic blues rock outfit, DeWolff.

We talk about the time Colin became the unexpected third wheel on a date, Paul Simon renditions in the middle of Shoreditch and we catch up on the names you suggested for our latest Twitter poll.


The super awesome bonus episode

Welcome to the cutting room floor…

This is a super awesome bonus episode featuring most of the covers we’ve done so far along with some original riffs, unheard beer reviews and a rant on the North American pronunciation of aluminium.

We have to cut so much from episodes, Mostly Mike saying ‘um’ 30 to 40 times in a sentence, or Colin’s ear-splitting laugh, so here is the stuff that was good but we jus didn’t have time to put in to any episodes. 


Episode 7: Howling in the Key of Mango

Band practice takes on a distinctly Icelandic beer theme when Conor brings back some ÚLFRÚN from Iceland’s  Borg Brugghús.

It’s a face off between two beers, so, a beer off. England Vs Iceland. What will the outcome be? Will it mirror the humiliating knock out of Euro 2016?

We also discuss the names of our previous bands and start throwing out ridiculous name ideas for the 2 songs 2 beers band.


Episode 6: Please Mic Up my Cup Holder

The band are back from holidays with some new gear, some local beers and their own interpretation of a Motown classic.

Conor talks us through his capacious pedal board and Colin talks about probably the most important kit any drummer needs, a Cup holder ! Mike also discovers his voice in singing.

We introduce the original 2 Songs 2 Beers “Top of the Hops” beer leader board and have a reminisce about our best gig experiences.


Episode 5: Its just like falling off a bike

Colin the drummer makes his triumphant return after creating another slightly smaller drummer with his wife.

Listening to this episode is as easy as falling off a bike, according to Mike.

We reveal some musical history about the band, embarassing first album purchases (showing our bad taste and age at the same time).


Episode 4: Twangin’ Away In The Kitchen

The 2S2B family grows again but this time it’s not what you think. Mike and Conor hold the fort while Colin has a baby.

We speak to Colin via the miracle of technology (a phone) to talk new editions to the family and when to expect him back behind the drum kit.


Episode 3: I am King Lear

The Journey continues, a frontman found

The results of the auditions are in, We have some exciting official band news to deliver. A new member has been found, and no its not King Lear.

We met up at Pirate studios this time to Have a Jam and to tell the new member the great news. This is another landmark episode!
