The Kitchen Is On Fire (general)

Yet another classic of the genre, if the genre is standard TKIOF fare….and it is. This week the ‘PieBoyz start dry, then wet up their grim whistles with some crispy Albarino. They then tumble head first into a cupboard of grease to discuss Sticky Walnut and pickled celery. Win Butler from Arcade Fire is rude to Sam and James gets ‘seen to’ by that pesky Boozy Quack. There’s a lot of dull broth, fun with a gavel and Meatloaf: The Musical. Is this a bounty of chat? Damn right it is. It’s a veritable dry chocolate covered coconut bar of discussion, wit, intelligence and flat out mouth based sounds masquerading as speech. Or something.

Back once again in an at least vaguely similar fashion to a renegade master, it's James Of Ramsden and Sam Of Herlihy. Also in tow is Puggsley from 'The Addams Family' aka Ajax Of Kentish. This week the foolish fools discuss a long dead corpse, how to drill a carrot and ambergris. James is has incredible fitness levels, Sam is confused by time again and Ajax is wearing a rude teeshirt. All this plus Joey Trib, some somewhat serious chat about restaurant soft launches, and a lovely chat about broccoli. (Green not Barbara).

It's a behemoth, an epic, a bloated two hour stumble through The Nutes, Jeff Garlin, bad backs, the live stage musical 'School Of Rock' and James's greasy nipples. Amidst these important and fascinating topics our dumb pair find time to ponder their favourite chords, Sam's mother's new app, and they also try desperately not to offend anyone with regards to Weinstein.....

It is long, and it's perhaps not entirely strong but these two verifiable Billys of the Silly varietal surely deserve praise for effort? Finally, anyone who manages to stagger to the very end of this Tolkien-esque leviathan.... Aloha! Well done indeed audio-friend!

Ajax doesn't show up to make his debut on TKIOF. However, zero tears are shed and Sam and James put the boot in and play Joey Trib without that oversleeping joker. Elsewhere last week's guest is roundly mocked for his funky dancing, Sam fails to understand the concept of time and James tells a fascinating tale regarding the reorganization of his cookbook shelves. Sam hits a dishwasher with a hammer, Pidgin wins an award and it's unclear whether or not a man on fire is alive or dead. TKIOF episode one one one, yet more of the wonderment and vast intellect you expect from the PidgPie Boyzzzzz!

The at least vaguely legendary George Reynolds is in the proverbial hizzhouse to get deep, get real and get down upon the topic of....food! Who would of thunk it? The Pidg'Pie boyz join in a spirited verbal joust-off with Gee-Rizzle (as I imagine no one has ever called him) and a lovely, warmhearted affair it is too. We discover that James may have a penchant for stalking young food writers. George goes hog wild for Waitrose pesto and Sam desperately wanted to be a theatre nerd. Things get serious, things get stupid and other things...happen in an auditory sense. Also, the truly wonderful game 'Joey Trib' is back. Praise be! (To all and any false/real idols you idolizzzzzze!) Bye bye!

All change on TKIOF Episode 109* where our trusty twosome glamp, brunch and grouse like it is in fact no thing. James fires up a wood oven only to baffle Sam with his meat tightfistedness. Sam's back explodes which flat out disgusts James. They discuss The War On Drugs, a singular pirate in the Caribbean and James's wife bravely purchases a stroller unseen from Gumtree! Stay tuned to find out how that jeopardy-ridden vibe plays out....

*There's no change, it's the same load of dumb chat it always is.

James and Sam are back and wrestling with topics both vast in scale and slippery in nature. Popeye, Free Willy, Gentle Ben and Wall E are all guests at this chatfest. Sam doesn't care if life is real, James intends to commit fraud at Zara and there is a truly fascinating discussion of import/export tax rates, shipping and bonded warehouses. Gawdamn this is a zesty brain trust. Two great minds jousting with the truths of life as if it is in fact, no thang. Kerplunk!

Everyone's first choices for a 'Chuckle Brothers' re-boot are back after a few weeks off to open a new restaurant. Sam discovers that James is a heavily scarred individual while James discovers that Sam is utterly inept at rugby. There's also some classic insulting of their audience, a long discussion on the etiquette of loaning fields to other farmers and a weird Lionel Ritchie in 'Ghost' detour. You've missed them, they haven't missed you, but still, James and Sam are back and ready to upturn an overflowing bucket of TKIOF juice all over yer heads!

Could this actually be the end of the line for our gruesome twosome? Sam and James have had an argument and it seems that bygones can't be bygones...In other news they get lost in 'Gulliver's Travels', there's a Radiohead update and whilst their own friendship seems dashed upon the rocks, they'd both really like to be friends with Edgar Wright. Oh, and Sam vomits so much he blows out all the blood vessels in his eyeballs.

It's a guest fest. A festival of guests. Thom Ramsden! Faith! Pidgin regular turned pal of our dummy hosts Matt Bright! It rains misogyny, there is talk of The Doors and 'The Doors' and Matt tells all about a boozy trip to Hitler's bunker. James embarrasses himself in a pub and Sam is flat-out rude to a homeless dude. Episode one hundred and five comes from a new venue, with new people on the microphones, but it's still the same old nozzle of nonsense spurting all over the place. Get it, hear it, know it and feel a bit gross afterwards.
