Episode 173 - The Devil's Twins

We had a remote conversation with the Boston band The Devil’s Twins, who we’ve wanted to have on for a while.  We do not like remote conversations, but we did find it was better than having them in person with masks on.  First of all, it is obviously safer to do it remotely, and also it is much more difficult to have a face to face when you can’t even see their faces.  So, we will continue to be remote until it is safe to see people in the flesh.  

That said we were lucky enough to have on Nicole Coogan and Jeremiah John Louf, as well as band members Ryan Manning, Eric Ortiz and Aitan Ben-Joseph.  These great people also have a great clan of fans called the 2Crew, of which I am proud to be a member – some of them even getting a 2 crew tattoo to support the band, which is what I hope Ronnie will do one of these days to support me by having my name tattooed on his chest.   

You should know, the first rule of the 2Crew is: You do not talk about 2Crew, Except you should talk about them all the time.    I will let you decide what that means, but I like it.  

They recorded their last album Bad Karma and have been releasing it a piece at a time, including some great videos that you can see on their website  Last year they had a fantastic show at GBH’s Fraser room that you can see at  They are such a great live band and I have been encouraging them to get a graphic novel started with each of them a superhero character.
