Last we left those delightful cream puffs over at Two Minutes to Late Night, they were laying down some gnarly grooves via a bitching cover of Pantera’s “Mouth for War.” So it was only fitting that they counter such a crushing song with the least-crushing music imaginable: the dance hits of the ’90s.
As you’ll see below, the Two live crew decided that this time around, they’d meld the most annoying earworms of ’90s Z100, including “Better Off Alone,” “I’m Blue,” and “The Rhythm of the Night.” Performing this melange of mediocrity is one hell of a sonic rogues’ gallery: Alan Cassidy (The Black Dahlia Murder) on drums; Myrone (First Borne) and Nili Brosh (The Iron Maidens) on guitar; Boots (Run the Jewels) on keyboards; Izzy Fontaine (Glassjaw — and fucking Seal) on bass; and Alexis Krauss (Sleigh Bells), Carina Zachary (Husbandry), Mike Terry (Volumes), and Spider One (Powerman 5000) on vocals; and the Ghost Funk Orchestra on horns. Gwarsenio’s also in there, because you can’t kick out the guy whose house the party’s at.
