The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 041 - Baroness, Testament, and Crazy Uncle Dave

As the European festival season winds down, fall releases and US touring move to the fore. Updates on Baroness and Testament’s European road trips precede discussion of Crazy Uncle Dave’s latest rant on US politics from the stage in Singapore and the judge’s ruling in the Kyuss Lives! lawsuit. Loond dissects recent releases from Malice and Lord Fowl and Jibbies explores the greatness and present-day influence of Blue Oyster Cult via their new retrospective box set. Fall releases? How ‘bout Down, Enslaved, the Sword, Neurosis, and Power Trip as just the tip of the iceberg? And tours? In addition to already-announced road work from Gwar, DevilDriver, Cancer Bats, Red Fang, and Black Tusk, J&L pile on with US tours including Converge, Kvelertak, Torche, Valient Thorr, and Tomahawk. Finally respect is given to the rapidly selling-out October European package of Slash and Ginger and info provided on how to give fellow metalhead Ed from Doomantia.com a helping hand.

Jibbies & Loond: SXSW 2012 - Valient Thorr at Volcom Party

Based on the strength of their Friday performance, Saturday sees Jibbies & Loond point their metal towards Red 7 in hopes of catching a full set from Cancer Bats. It seems, however, that they were not alone in this pursuit, the Alternative Press showcase they’re part of proving even more popular than Shirts For A Cure had the prior day. The line stretches ¾ of a block from Red 7’s door to the corner, and then another half block up Red River. Given the amount of time J had ...
