When I think of shmups, I think of grazing bullets, exploding pop-corn, 1CC’s, and the STG bible: The Full Extend of the Jam. But let’s get into the music! We’re joined by VGM rock-MASTER Chris Baines to share our favorite 2D shooter music! He shares his love of all things Gradius, and we get into how there’s so many awesome jazz-licks in these games. Wait are you waiting for? ENEMY APPROACHING!

You’re training hard, but there isn’t enough time to show everyone? That’s when you need a montage! We’re talking tough-hard-hitting music for pumping iron. But we’re also talking about fun, harmonica-filled jams for the end of a 90s sitcom. Like Family Matters. What if that actually was Carl Winslow helping out Bruce Willis in Die Hard? We ask the tough questions.
Joining us on the show is Cameron from the video game cover band The Mad Gear! Cameron brings his wealth of game and music knowledge to the table and pushes it to the limit!
