For decades, Turbojugend has withstood crises and ups and down with our favorite, go-to band ass well ass personal and micropolitical issues. One topic, however, seems to be reappearing with a rigorous force and a seemingly never ending persistence: is Pineapple Pizza an acceptable thing, should it be tolerated or even appreciated? TJ Radio picked up the slack and made it this episode center topic (well overdue).
Talk about a schizophrenic lifestyle - yes, we did talk about keeping your drinking habits in good order, we ranted about being sober for some time. Enter Lonkero, a Finnish long drink out of a can that has many fans in the Turbojugend univarse and even climbed his way up into the spheres of MVP status. A true MVP (Most Valuable Patch) powered by the mighty TJ Kyrkslätt .
Yes, we know, Turbojugend is a fun and beer loving micro-(brew)-society. But on occasion and with age, we tend to need a break, even from the booze. On a serious note: we´ve seen sailors and -rettes in really unfortunate situations. That´s why we installed aTJ support group that goes by the name of "Soberjugend". After all, we need to take care of each other. This 5-way conference not only spans the globe but also provides some valuable insights.
On this episode of Turbojugend Radio, Turbonegro´s iconic ex-drummer, Chris Summers, joins the show to talk about his memories with the band, the production of Apocalypse Dudes and how his life changed after he left the band. A most beautiful conversation to kick-off 2021.
Instead of hosting their annual "Turbojugend against ChristmAss" party, TJR´s own B. Engel and Tschebesta ring their respective Christmass bells and present an actual Call-In show that features a slue of promiment TJ guests from all over the world, spamming the globe with some relevant look-backs of 2020 and look aheads into the void(2021).
It´s been quite a while since we talked to Turbojugends from South America so TJR decided to call PanDeamon from TJ Satanica and Denimcat from TJ Lima to get an update from the probably most enthusiastic Turbojugend society on earth. Especially after Turbo finally went on to tour countries like Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Peru, TJs in South America sort of experiences a big growth and very enthusiastic following. Even more, the both of them get down and provide some much needed advice for TJs worldwide, how to treat difficult situations, avoid friction and how to actually SOLVE social media challenges.
In the looming light of the upcoming presidential election, TJ Radio asked Happy Tom to give his insights on the current state of The American Dream. Based upon his new TV Mini-Series, “UXA - Thomas Seltzers Amerika”, Turbonegro´s bass wrecking machine digs deep into his personal, life-long experience and quite eloquently elaborates not only on U.S. politics as such but also references the upcoming U.S. election. This podcast WILL smarten you up and “…that´s the bottom line, cause TJR said so!” ©.
We´ve all had our fair amount of cold ones in the course of our lifetime(s). However, as we are a special breed of humanoids with passion for Jeans jackets, beer and Turbojugend define a delicate and pronounced relationship that needs to be evaluated in a rather distinguished and professional way: enter TJ Wellington´s one and only Keef Scum.
After skipping Weltturbojugendtage this summer due to The Plague, the ever so positive TJR talked to the WTJT organizers about the status of next year’s worldwide Denim gathering, also explaining what led to the necessary cancellation and announced the planned Line-Up for WTJT 21.
Always keen on opening up new horizons for the TJ audience, TJR found an awesome new MVP patch in Australia, dug a little deeper only to come up with some interesting facts about Australia´s history and own racial issues. In the light of BLM, certainly worth a listen. Plus, we got the chance to talk to Electric Six´s Dave for an exclusive TJR interview - powered by TJ Moscow.
