November 27, 2016 - Symmetrical Defiance Live

Symmetrical DefiancePresent were, EVD, Just Joe, Nathan, and, R.J.. The band Symmetrical Defiance was there in the first portion of the program. They played a couple of sets of their songs live in our Performance Room. It sounded great, again, thanks to Nathan for running the sound. Then the band was interviewed. They are a cool band, they were here on R.J.'s recommendation. The previous Wednesday, November 23rd, had marked the 13th Anniversary of Just Joe's first appearance on LE, so we celebrated that this night. Azkath put together a highlight reel of The Best Of Just Joe's moments over the years, it was two hours long, everyone present tonight got to watch it, and, given all that's happened to him over the last 13 years, only a small portion of which was represented here, no one could believe he was still alive. We're still working on that, though. You will be able to see this video for yourself soon on our youtube channel. Just Joe has always been afraid of jellybeans. What a strange thing to be afraid of, like that guy from the band Rabid who's afraid of stickers, people can be so strange, I love jellybeans! They fed him jellybeans. at first he was whining, but, at the end of the night, he wasn't sure how he felt about them. There were segments of Movie Time, a TV program was recommended as well... At the end was also a Tribute to 2003.

September 11, 2016 - EVD's 11th Anniversary!

EVD, Justin, Crappy

This LE fell on the exact date of EVD's eleventh year Anniversary, September eleventh 2005 (his eleventh Anniversary, on the eleventh, and, isn't THAT a fitting date for him!?). Happy eleventh Anniversary, EVD! Present were, EVD (good thing!), Justin a.k.a. Twelve Inch, although, we decided that, when he is absent, he loses an inch for each absence, and he had been absent for two weeks in a row, so he's down to ten inches, although, if he's extra good, he could gain them back, Just Joe, James, and, The Person Formerly Known As Crappy The Clown, who tonight was going by Mr. Oddz. As a treat for Justin, Azkath did a whole Old School Hour in vinyl. Rick from "The Metallic Onslaught", dropped by to tell us how The Finger Lakes Metal Fest Part Two went, it went very well. Funny stories, news items, were read. They kept sicking Just Joe on James, having him mercilessly keep poking and tickling him. EVD, being the Evil Villainous Dude, even telling him that there was a bellybutton lint bunny and toys hidden in his navel. There were segments of Movie Time, TV programs, and, Internet series were talked about as well.

June 5, 2016 - Take 2 Live in Studio

Take Two and NathanSo this week we had Take Two back in studio to perform. They had planned on having a new CD by now, but things did not work out like they wanted. Regardless, they came and they played. Check them out on Facebook

This was also the 22nd Anniversary of Me, Azkath, doing The Last Exit for the Lost. Well, not exactly, it would have been June 3rd, and it wasn't The Last Exit back then, it was The Metal Cage. June 2nd is the first night I was on the air, and I've been on almost every week since (only missing a handful over the 22 year period.) When I came in, the show was on Fridays, I moved it to Saturday not to overlap The Metallic Onslaught. Instead of a Tribute to any year this night, I played about 2 hours of bands that have been in studio with us over the years, some playing live. I also snuck in some material from our Best of Cd's.

November 29, 2015 - Just Joe's 12th Anniversary

Poor JoeThis program was to celebrate Just Joe's twelfth Anniversary of being here, November 23rd, which had been this past week, Happy Anniversary, Just Joe! Present to help celebrate it were, Just Joe, luckily(!), EVD, Nathan, Rob from the band Thirteen South, and, Vern, who hasn't been here in almost a year and a half, and was Just Joe's first Anniversary surprise in a night that would see several (all that time away hasn't changed Vern a bit, he's still as obnoxious and annoying as ever). Also, The Almighty Monkey was listening and giving his input this night. Just Joe's next surprise was bubble wrap, which he was urged to pop, only when he tried to, he couldn't, because it was the kind that's all connected together so you can't pop them, which is being used more and more often nowadays, I hate it, too! Why do they have to go and take all the fun out of everything!? Everyone loves to pop bubble wrap! Just Joe did make a puppet out of the non poppable bubble wrap, and then he cheered himself up a little by beating on Nathan, which always makes everyone feel better, well, everyone but Nathan, of course. A game of Hide And Go Beat was played. Nathan had never played this before. Nathan had to go hide, and both Just Joe and Vern would have to try and find him, in the dark. If Nathan got found, he lost, if Just Joe and Vern couldn't find him, they lost. And the results on this night were Paddle Or Kiss, whoever lost got spanked with the paddle with a whole lot of thumb tacks in embedded in it, whoever won, would get Hershey's Kisses. Actually, there were three rounds. The first Nathan was found almost immediately, but the second and third, they couldn't find him. So Nathan got spanked once with The Paddle, and got two Kisses, and Just Joe and Vern got one Kiss each, and two spanks with The Paddle. A Russian Roulette set was played. Just Joe was asked to pick if he wanted bullet or no bullet. He picked no bullet. If a bullet played, Nathan, Vern, and, Rob would all My Crotch Your Face Just Joe. If no bullet played, then Just Joe would get to hear "The Final Countdown" in it's entirety, and Europe's version, not a cover. There was a bit of confusion for a minute when the question was posed what if that song played, as it did three weeks ago, when Just Joe was not here. At first it was said that, in that case, Just Joe would get to hear it, then that was quickly corrected to no he wouldn't, because that would then mean that the song would become the bullet, not the prize, and would therefore have to be stopped, and Just Joe would get My Crotch Your Faced. See, you thought this was a silly, simple game, on the contrary, as you can see, it can become quite complicated. So the computer picked from thirteen thousand nine hundred and fifty songs, and it would get even more complicated, because, a song played that half the people present said was a bullet, and the other half said it was not. So it was decided that both things would happen, Europe's "The Final Countdown" would be played... While Just Joe was getting a three person My Crotch Your Face. It was a very disturbing My Crotch Your Face, with a lot of spinning involved. When it was over, they asked Just Joe if he enjoyed finally getting to hear one of his favorite songs? But Just Joe seemed too traumatized for some odd reason to really answer, just kept whimpering. And, I think we may have cured him of wanting to hear that song, because, for the rest of the night, whenever anyone sang the opening notes to it, Just Joe would start to twitch, obviously that song now has too bad memories connected to it for him to like it. Which is amusing to watch, so now we may actually be seeing the ban on that song lifted, and we may actually hear it a bit. There was a lot of reminiscing, everyone giving their most memorable Just Joe moments from the last twelve years, of which there are A LOT. A LOT. In this reminiscing, The Giant Hammer came up. Nathan had brought a brand new Mac tablet with him. They had him lie down holding it, and then Just Joe bashed it with The Giant Hammer 'til it was beyond repair. Nathan was whining that he had just paid two hundred dollars for that. Well, then you shouldn't have been stupid enough to bring it here. Anyone should know who has been here more than once, and Nathan has been here way more than that, if you have anything you value, don't bring it here, because it will be destroyed, or, if it will fit, wind up down someone's pants, and you won't ever want to touch it again. Vern said that he had been away way too long, and now realized how much he missed being here, he said that he was never going to leave again. Azkath told him that they were now going to play a game, Vern would go hide, and everyone would try to find him. Vern hid, and nobody made the slightest move to go look for him the rest of the night, so he'll be waiting quite a long while. It was an all vinyl Old School Hour, as it has been for the last couple of weeks. There was A Cover Set. There were segments of Movie Time, and TV Programs, and on-line Shows were talked about as well. And so thus went Just Joe's Twelfth Anniversary Show, it has certainly been a very eventful twelve years! And so, once again, A VERY HAPPY TWELFTH ANNIVERSARY, TO JUST JOE!!!!! You have certainly made the last twelve years interesting, and entertaining!!!

June 7, 2015 - 21st Anniversary Show

EVD and Friends

This past week, Wednesday, on June 3rd, was LE's 21st Anniversary, so this was an Anniversary Show. Present were, EVD, Nathan, Tim, Olivia, and Darryl from Undead Messengers, and, Adam and Nikki, who hadn't been here in a while. There was a little talk about the past, but this time, Azkath decided to celebrate the current co-hosts, he had presents for them. EVD got to bash a picture of George W. Bush and break it into smithereens with a hammer. Nathan got a tape deck, it doesn't work, but maybe he can fix it up. It also happened to be the very date of Tim and Olivia's third Anniversary of being together. Happy Anniversary, guys. To Celebrate them as co-hosts, and to celebrate their Anniversary as well, Tim got to stand under the balcony while Olivia and EVD pelted him with a whole bunch of water balloons. There was a set of about ten Shoebox songs, which took about eleven minutes, to honor him as he used to be a regular co-host. At 3:30, the set of cover songs was played. There were segments of Movie Time, with some TV programs talked about as well. The last hour was The Old School Hour... 

There was also the first part of an interview that Azkath and Randy did with Karen Stever of the band Stever. You can listen to the full interview here.

June 29, 2014 - 20th Anniversary Shows: Part 4 - Hangman's Heart and Pez

Last ExitThis was the last of our four specials all throughout the month of June commemorating the fact that June marks twenty years that "The Last Exit For The Lost" has been on the air. This incarnation of it, anyways. It was around for almost another decade under other names, with different hosts, on different days, in different time slots, and with different lengths, but June of 1994 is when this version of it came to be. And, all throughout this month we have brought back many voices from the past two decades, former co-hosts, and even former hosts of some of the other incarnations of the program, past guests, past bands who have been on and/or performed on the air, and, current bands as well. Present this night were, current co-host, James, Tim, someone who hadn't been here in four years, EVD, who was a long time regular co-host, and Pez, a former host from when the program had a different name and hosts. Also there was Matt, who had gotten the performance room up and running so we can now have bands play fully electric, and, the first band to do that, tonight, Hangman's Heart, Dave, formerly of the band Spater, had tested it out for us last week, but it was just him and a guitar, great, but this was our first time with a full band playing electric, they played six songs, and it went very well, they rock, you can find them on facebook. The vocalist had been here before with his then band Nonetheless, and, a decade ago, we used to ask bands questions from theinsanedomain.com to hear them try to come up with answers to those crazy questions, and one of those questions was, "What if there was an evil picnic basket, and the only way to destroy it was to sing a song about it?", and he on the spot, composed and sang a seven minute song about that, it was very impressive, and funny. We played that for him tonight. All throughout this month we have also been playing clips from The Best Of CD's, featuring the past guests, and all the hilarity and insanity. About the last half of the program consisted of mostly bands that have been in the studio over the past twenty years, many of the tracks were live performances from LE. In the first portion of the night, Pezz got to pick and play a few sets of music, and EVD got to play some music. There was a segment of Movie Time, and TV shows and wrestling were discussed as well. In the last hour, I called in to talk about my history with LE, for the past twelve years as a participant, I was a listener for two years before that, we talked about my participation in the program, as a co-host of the chat room, kind of show historian and archivist, as a writer of these recaps, and I have also been of assistance a few times, providing recordings of LE that otherwise would have been lost to posterity for one reason or another. It has been an honor and a privilege to provide any assistance I could, and I have had a blast along the way! And, something I forgot to mention then, I was one of the many, many, people that has caused Just Joe to fall down, or off of, something, over the years. In my case, I made him fall off the roof, I was actually trying to talk him into coming down off the roof, but I wound up making him fall off of it. So I did get him down, just not the way I had intended to get him down, but, hey, whatever works, right!? Thanks to Azkath for having me on to share my memories, I also talked about how I first discovered LE, I knew nothing about metal, except for glam, so it was because I accidentally stumbled across a really insane and hysterical talk break, with people laughing hysterically, and Friend yelling "FRRRIIIEEEEENNDDD!!!!!", and cows mooing, or rather, people mooing like cows, and people yelling "F The Scarecrow!", that was for a character, a Scarecrow named F, so people would yell "F The Scarecrow!", and I was forever after hooked. Azkath played those clips for me, as that's how I got started with LE. As the Tuesday after this LE, July 1st, at 9:43 A.M., to be exact, which I can't help being, to everyone else's annoyance, is my birthday, they wished me Happy Birthday. EVD didn't want to sing, so they just said it, that's ok, I have had the pleasure of being shrieked at, err, I mean, sang to, by Just Joe many, many times over the years. Nice quiet Birthday greetings are fine. Thanks for the Birthday wishes, guys, and again, for having me on. The final song to close out the fourth and final of our twentieth Anniversary specials (although, actually, we will be celebrating it all summer long, because we have had so very many awesome guests, co-hosts, and bands on over these past two decades, that we couldn't fit them all into one month, and some weren't able to make it this month, but definitely wanted to be a part of the celebration), was, appropriately enough, the song that gave the show it's name, "The Last Exit For The Lost", by the band Fields Of The Nephilim. And so thus concluded our special month long look back at all of the insanity, silliness, hilarity, mayhem, and all the rockin' bands, music, and all the awesome, cool people that have been what made "The Last Exit For The Lost" such a unique and special program, exposing us to local, independent, and underground music, as well as the great classics of metal, and having a lot of fun along the way, for two decades now! - Fire Eater Wizard

June 22, 2014 - 20th Anniversary Shows - Part 3: Bri Bri and The Sloth

Last ExitThis was the third of our special Anniversary Shows, throughout the month of June, as June marks the twentieth anniversary of this incarnation of the program. So, all month, voices from the past, former co-hosts coming back, current and past band members who have been on, and Best Of clips reliving all the insanity have been featured. Present this night were, Just Joe, who was actually there for two weeks in a row, James, Tim, Rick, From "The Metallic Onslaught", Dave, formerly of the band Spater, we learned this night that Spater was no more, Bri Bri, The Evil Shy Guy, among many names he has had, among others, The Evil Quaker, Hollywood Bri Bri, and Cousin Mel, his wife, Theresa, and his arch Nemesis, The Sloth Of The Apocalypse, and, Matt, who got a big hand for getting the performance room up and running, so now bands can perform live, and full electric, not just acoustic. Dave tested it out, he played some songs, three, including a love song, and a Spater song. The room worked great, and the songs were cool. Azkath had a present for Sloth, The Almost Original Suck Toy Of The Monkeys, from way back in the day. Sloth didn't want to put it in his mouth, but it wound up there anyways. Sloth and Bri Bri still argued, Bri Bri said he had given up being a Quaker, and was no longer evil, but Sloth didn't believe him. Azkath had another present for sloth, a Twinkie. He said it was the last Twinkie. Sloth was devastated when they stopped making Twinkies. He didn't trust that it was real, he thought it was a trick. Finally Azkath convinced him that it wasn't, Sloth opened the Twinkie, and saw that it really was a Twinkie. He started thanking Azkath profusely. While he was doing that, Just Joe was eying the Twinkie. When Sloth finally went to eat the Twinkie, Sloths are really slow, he only got to taste one bite of it, because Just Joe couldn't control himself any longer, and grabbed and devoured the Twinkie. Sloth tore after Just Joe in a rage, or at least as much as a sloth can really tear after anyone or anything, especially when that someone is on a sugar rush from a just eaten Twinkie. Just Joe got back, Sloth hadn't caught him. They asked him why he would do such a mean thing to poor Sloth. Just Joe's response was "Twinkie delicious!". Sloth finally made it back, and did choke Just Joe. But apparently Sloth was unaware that they have brought back the Twinkie, some months ago. When he was informed that you can buy them pretty much anywhere, he said he was leaving to go buy some right now. They asked him to stay for the rest of the program, but he said it would be fine, he was just going to run right down to the store, and grab some Twinkies, and run right back. So he left, and we should see him in about nine months to a year. With Twinkies. The next day, Monday, June 23rd, was Tim's Birthday, Happy Birthday, Tim! So Azkath had a birthday present for him. In the other room, there was a nice big floor, which was covered in about a hundred mousetraps. At first Azkath had thought to have Tim thrown into them for his birthday, but then decided that there was something that Tim would probably like even more than that, Tim could throw Just Joe into the mousetraps. So Azkath had had Just Joe set up the mousetraps, telling him that he was going to throw Tim into them for his birthday, which Just Joe totally bought. So Just Joe took Tim to the mousetrap room, and Just Joe wound up covered in mousetraps, the sounds from there were really impressive. Besides, Just Joe, you should have that happen, not only did it bring Tim happiness for his birthday, but you were really mean to poor Sloth, stealing his Twinkie and breaking his heart. Everyone sang "Happy Birthday To You" to Tim, well, Just Joe shrieked it, like he always does. The like last half of the program consisted of all music from bands that have been in the studio at LE over the past twenty years, and there is still a ton more of it to get through, we have had many, many, really excellent bands grace us with their presence over these two decades. Sadly, many of them are no more, but they left us with a lot of really great music. There was a Movie Time, and TV programs, and wrestling, were discussed as well. Throughout the night many Best Of clips were played, featuring Bri Bri and Sloth. And James brought us a wheel, we have never really actually had a wheel, just a box with a button on it, but now we have one, thanks to James. And so, thus went the third of our Twentieth Anniversary Specials. - Fire Eater Wizard

June 15, 2014 - 20th Anniversary Shows - Part 2: Vern, Ian, and Chuck!

Last Exit

This was the second of five very special programs commemorating the fact that this month, June, marks twenty years of "The Last Exit For The Lost", featuring many special guests, voices and bands from the past and present, and reliving all the memories from the past twenty years. Here tonight were, Just Joe, a couple of WVBR personalities, Chuck, from the program that follows LE, "The Salt Creek Show", and, Mark Andbinder, long time WVBR personality, who does a lot of things, The worst Co-host In The World, Dave, who had actually now been here two weeks in a row, which has to be some kind of record, Ian The Yeti, and, to everyone's dismay, Vern, who appeared when Azkath just had to go and play a CD that said, "Never, Never, Ever, Ever Play This CD", it turned out to be Vern's Theme music, and it summoned him. Vern and Just Joe decided to form a band that they called Sound Check. This band featured such great hits as "Check One Check Two", and all the other hits you know from any band doing a sound check, which I guess means that all of those bands ripped off Just Joe and Vern. Sound Check kept forming, disbanding, reforming, changing members, firing members, getting new members, and firing them again all throughout the night. First they broke up when The Yeti arrived, because Just Joe is already in a band with him, The Squirtin' Chubbies, and he left Sound Check to rejoin that. Then he left that to rejoin Sound Check, which now also featured Dave, 'til Vern fired Dave, when it turned out that Dave, unlike the other two, who sing HORRIBLY, actually has talent, he has a nice singing voice, as well as a good death metal growl. Vern got Jealous of all the praise that was being heaped on Dave, so he kicked him out of the band. Then he kicked Just Joe out, because Vern wanted to do everything, vocals, guitar, and drums. So Sound Check was now a one Mopkin band. Azkath played a clip from a Best Of CD, where Vern was actually very funny. Azkath said that, maybe it was good to have Vern around after all. Just then they noticed that Vern looked sick, very sick. Vern told Just Joe that the pressure and fame of the band had just been too much for him, and he had turned to unhealthy substances, which he had now overdosed on. With his last gasping breath, he implored Just Joe to keep Sound Check alive, then he expired. Azkath was pissed with Vern for dying just when, for the first time, after ten years of him, he was finally starting to like him. Just Joe and Ian decided that they must keep Sound Check going, it was Vern's dying wish, after all. But they didn't think that they should keep the name Sound Check, after all they just wouldn't feel right singing all those songs with lyrics consisting of variations on the words Sound Check without Vern. Big de lemma, what should they call themselves? Azkath suggested "The Squirtin' Chubbies"? They thought that was perfect! So now they were back to exactly what they always were, but Sound Check lives on, of course, somewhere. Azkath had a request for The Squirtin' Chubbies, he wanted to hear one of their biggest hits, "There's A Raccoon On My Face", so they sang it, the lyrics are "AAAHHHHH! GET IT OFF!!!!!", which sounds disgusting, but I think refers to the raccoon. Hide And Go Beat was played. Dave hid and Chuck seeked. Now Dave, in addition to his title of Worst Co-host In The World, has recently acquired another title, Master Hider, the two times he had played, no one had been able to find him, however, this time the third time was not the charm, as his streak was broken, Chuck found him, and so got to knock him out by bashing him over the head with a big metal sheet. Lots of clips from Best Of CD's were played, making poor Ian relive some horrible experiences, like getting covered in very pungent ass sweat from both Just Joe, and The In forcer, AKA, Harold. This night, Ian was pretty much unscathed, only getting squeezed a few times, both Chuck and Just Joe got their heads humped by Vern, he was always doing that to people, and he hadn't changed in his absence, but now he is dead, so no more of that. The final hour was, again, a very special Old School Hour, featuring all bands that have been associated with LE these past twenty years, some performing live here, some doing interviews, some being on a lot at certain times, so that they became co-hosts, like Eric, from the band Ire Clad, and R.J., and Rob, from the band Thirteen South, are now. Some bands featured tonight, The Lobster Quadrille, Pandora's ToyBox, Worm Quartet, Sorrow Of Batavia, among many others. Some of the tracks played were performances bands have given live here over the years. And so, thus went the second of our five Anniversary Specials. - Fire Eater Wizard
