Smoke Break, vol. 5:


We're taking it to the streets for the fifth volume of Smoke Break, just two dudes complaining about making their year-end Top Tens. Yeah, how fucking hard the life of a rock critic is. Yeah man, really. Making lists. That's a real bitch. Well, good talking to you; my break's about over, and I want to finish eating this crust of bread before I head back down into the mine.


Watch all five smoke breaks here.

As always, Smoke Break is brought to you with the help of the crack technicians at SG Creative.
