Win a JUNIOR BRUCE T-Shirt and Vinyl Record!


If y’all wanna win some Grade-A merch courtesy of Junior Bruce, you better get in here.

If you’re one of the good boys and girls that cheerfully gathers ’round the family Victrola every Monday morning to listen to Toilet ov Hell Radio, you happily recall Episode 29. Dubya and I merrily recounted our experiences seeing Insane Clown Posse in person and I interviewed Boss the Ross pretending to be Floridian sludge band Junior Bruce.

TovH Radio Ep. 29: We’re Juggalos Now

Unfortunately, my scheduled interview with the band didn’t work out as planned. I wanted to uncover the origin story for the band’s moniker. Who is Junior Bruce? Where did the name originate? Fortunately for you, dear reader, you can win a totally banging prize pack for telling us the origin story of the name Junior Bruce!

Simply give us your wildest theory in the comments and I’ll select my favorite to win a T-shirt and a vinyl copy of Endless Descent, the latest LP from Junior Bruce! Get creative and good luck!

    I think I blew a funny fuse today. Can’t come up with anything right now, but this album is a fun album!

    “JUNIOR BRUCE” is what I scream when my bowels empty my hatred into the Void of The Toilet.

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    Soooo, does my interview answer count here?

    • Ño.
      J/k, Bruce the Ross. I really liked your interview on the podcast.

    During his tenure away from Iron Maiden in the 1990s, Bruce Dickinson embarked on a massive world tour for his solo album Balls to Picasso. On this trek, Dickinson found himself in the bustling metropolis of Waterloo, Iowa. In a rare moment of wakefulness the day after a rollicking performance, Bruce stumbled out of his suite at the La Quinta Inn to find himself quite hungry and horny. Wandering down to the local watering hole Louie Louie’s to catch a little hair of the dog, Bruce found himself the sole occupant of the drinking establishment. Feeling lonely without the company of Harris and Murphy, Bruce began a conversation with local high school dropout turned bartender Candy Smith. After an afternoon of tapas and small talk over copious tipples, Bruce eventually used his British charm and wit to coax impressionable young Candy back to his suite at the La Quinta Inn. There he sewed his wild oats and departed Candy to perform his next concert. Ms. Smith never heard from Bruce again.

    As fate would have it, though, Mr. Dickinson sired a young lad upon Ms. Smith. Not being a particularly bright woman and lacking the creativity to determine a better name, the starstruck Candy accidentally christened the lad Junior Bruce upon his birth certificate. Despite his mother’s proclivity for seeking love from older men and would-be rock stars, young Junior had a comfortable life growing up in Waterloo. That is, until his sixteenth birthday, when his mother told him that he was the illegitimate love child of world famous metal frontman Bruce Dickinson in a bout of especially vehement domestic conflict. Young Junior decided then and there that he would usurp his father’s throne, but that he must do so as an act of vengeance.

    Eschewing the over-the-top melodic flair of his father’s band, Junior Bruce gathered around himself a gang of groove-loving, whiskey chugging miscreants and relocated to the deep South. There he resides to this day, nursing his grudge on black tooth grins and backwoods sludge. Soon, his day of reckoning will come.

      I like you.

      Gotta be the winner right here. Well done!

  • Waynecro

    I got nothing right now because I’m busy trying to explain the differences between Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things to an analyst who should fucking know better than to use the terms interchangeably. Besides, I can’t compete with The Tetrachord of Archytas’s and Dubya’s explanations. Those guys fucking nailed it.

    • Eliza

      I have no idea what the Industrial Internet of Things is, but it sounds like an epic name for an album.

      • Waynecro

        The Industrial Internet of Things is like the Internet of Things but, you know, industrial.

        • Eliza

          Found an explanation here: Not what I expected, but interesting nevertheless.

          • Waynecro

            It’s a pretty interesting topic, but this author’s using terminology incorrectly throughout his paper makes editing a real hassle. This kind of shit makes me want to quit my job, slip on a mesh tank top, and start a Venom-clone band with Boss the Ross.

          • Eliza

            I don’t know why you haven’t done that already.

          • Waynecro

            I blame my sobriety for delays in living that dream.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            I’M HERE FOR YOU!!

          • Eliza

            I can barely play guitar, but I’m willing to help.

          • Waynecro

            A lack of technique adds charm and character to music that sounds like satanic Motorhead.

          • more beer

            Not being able to play is a prerequisite for being in a Venom clone band.

          • socketman

            I just joined his site I got no idea aboout. Your banter seemed familiar. Mayhap.

          • Eliza

            Ok then?

    So this is reeeeaaaaal off-topic, but I gotta say it! I got on Discogs and ordered a copy of Fields/Church of Broken Glass, the Hammers of Misfortune double album from 2008, and it turns out, I bought the thing from Cobbett himself. Had I known, I’d have seen if I could get a signature or something, but he was super fast to ship it haha.

    • Waynecro

      I communicated directly with members of Virvum and Ancst when I ordered shirts recently. I’ll admit to feeling a bit giddy about it.

      • Dumpster Lung ᴰᵃᵐᵃᵍᵉ_ᴵⁿᶜ⁸⁹

        I miiiiiiiiight have emailed after the fact just now lol. Mostly just said thanks again, and if there’s any other old merch from his projects laying around he wants to get rid of, I’ll buy it.

        I couldn’t resist. The fanboy is strong in this one.

  • CT-12

    It was in response to someone who asked what their band name was before they actually had one. *guitarist looks around* uhhh….*notices calendar says June*….Juh,juh,juh, JUNIOR!…..uhhhhhh……*looks at bruise on arm, remembers Bruce Willis, goes with…*..BRUCE! Yeah, Junior Bruce!
