Music Commentary

Hosts Brent and Andy dive into frequent discussions on a wide range of musical topics, from record collecting to favorite albums, and bring guests on to further the discussion. New episodes drop every other Monday!


Andy and his guest Kenny Wright of The Great Affairs set the wayback machine to 1982. KISS' Creatures Of The Night was released in the Fall of '82 amongst a slew of heavy rock records, and we discuss the impact this had on Kenny at the time, as well as how the album still holds up decades later. We touch on Kenny's favorite tracks on Creatures, a few of the highlights from within the new box set, and even a few KISS-related releases from that era. Thank you for checking out this newest episode of A-SIDES.

You can also follow along with Kenny and The Great Affairs on their website or check put their new Holiday single on Youtube.
