077 — ICP: BEHIND THE PAINT (pt. 1 of 2)

It had to happen, and it had to happen in exactly this way: I Don’t Even Own a Television meets the juggalos, as we sit down with with clown and read Violent J.’s Behind the Paint. Be forewarned, this one goes places we rarely go; and be advised, this is our first ever two-part episode!

Here in part one, IDEOTV prepares an ICP primer. We enjoy endure wallow in the band’s early days, ranging all the way from suburban Detroit to slightly different parts of suburban Detroit, described with all the deft language you’d expect (or maybe demand) from the “musicians” responsible for “songs” like “I Stuck Her with My Wang”. Grab a well-chilled two-liter bottle of store-brand soda and prepare to return to a time when you still thought flipping somebody off counted as a revolutionary act.
