Car Con Carne

May 1, 2023

This episode was recorded inside Take the Reins’ practice space. They even prepared food for the recording, which will forever be known as “Crockpot Con Carne.”

The band performed a first-ever acoustic version of “Last Chance Motel” on the episode, before we talked at length about its “Thriller”-like video versions (spoiler: I’m featured in extended cut!).


I always enjoy my time with Take the Reins, and this episode should make it clear why!


See the band at Metro on May 6, as they, Night Spice and the Dog and Everything open up for Lucky Boys Confusion!
