Los Pistoleros – The Power of Booze and Fake Radio

Worst Little Podcast – Episode 029

Felix Polanski and Andy 86

Divided by beer. Reunited by beer.

 

And now, boys and girls, here’s a podcast.

If you’re a loyal listener you hay have heard last week that we were going to have the guys from Big Remote in this week. Unfortunately, there was a death in the family of one of the members and we’re postphoning the show with them. Much love to Foreman, Brown and Dixon families from all of us at the Worst Little Podcast in the World. Don’t fret though – they’ll be on soon. They can’t afford NOT to be on the most popular local music podcast in Reno.

 

Andy 86, Felix Polanski and Chewbacca!

We really have no standards - we'll let anyone in here. Even Clampers.

Instead we get Felix. Yeah, that’s right, Felix Polanski. *facepalm* It was a last minute thing; I know, I’m sorry. To balance that out we also have Jess from Cherrybear Records and Andy 86 from The Riptide Bandits LOS PISTOLEROS!  Even though the rest of the Pistols couldn’t make it on short notice, Andy graciously let us play a couple fo tracks from their upcoming CD release. (It will be out just as soon as their singer gets out of the slammer.)

Also, we finally play the tapes from the Undiscovered 2011 show. Rory recorded a brief interview with Los Pistoleros in the garage, right as they found out Felix is a dummy when he’s loaded. We also have an interview with a very drunk Felix AFTER a real disaster was avoided. He’s such a jerk. Felix and Andy publicly bury the hatchet for your entertainment!

Chewie’s back – not much to say except for his impeccably placed one-liners, as usual. This whole ‘Return of Chewbacca’ thing is actually starting to get old. But, whatever. It’s good to have the ol’ wookie back in town. We’re looking forward to him sticking around for the rest of the year.

We’ve got news, events and the Worst Little Quiz too. Can Andy unseat our current recordholder, Layla James? Listen in and find out!

Thanks for listening.

The Burning Man Spectaculare!

Worst Little Podcast – Episode 028

kate Cotter at Dogwater Studios

Poised, graceful... and not really sure if this was a good idea.

I know I say it all the time, but we REALLY DO have a big show for you this week – burners and Elvis and music, oh my!

The show opens with some recordings from the Playaphone circa 1998. After the open, we take a moment to remember the awesomeness that is Elvis Aaron Presley. 34 years ago he became truly legendary, dying on the toilet with such a darkened complexion that the paramedics arriving on the scene thought he was ‘a black male’. We came for the music and stayed for the excess. Thanks, Elvis.

Our first guest is always awesome Kate Cotter. Kate has been one of the most hardworking and well-recieved singer/songwriters in Reno, mesmerising audiencies for more than a decade. We talk with her about her recent recordings, performances and upcoming events.

Mallory Mishler and Jess Blaze at the Dogwater Studios

Camp Jub Jub sez, "Fuck Your Day!"

Then, on to Burning Man!!! The Dogwater Studios gets invaded by dirty hippies and artfags has the delight of hosting Jess Blaze, Mallory Mishler and a couple of other Burning Man specialists. It’s come to our attention that some people going to Burning Man may be interested in doing illegal drugs. Guess what people. It’s still part of America and all those drugs are still illegal. Doesn’t matter if you’re off in the desert. Rebecca Gasca of the Nevada ACLU has some great advice on how not to get busted in the first place, what to do if you are and how to deal with law enforcement on the playa. (Hint: it starts with ‘p’ and rhymes with ‘oliteness’.)

The digidelic cowboy

The Digidelic Cowboy!

Burning Man ‘expert’ Dr. Cornelius Cumcough stops by with some really horrible advice about Burning Man. (He probably thinks there is still a bridge connecting the twin peaks of Mt. Kilomanjaro.) And FINALLY, the Digidelic Cowboy busts out on his digereedoo, inspiring an impromptu jam session with Nick Ramirez on the beatbox! Oh, and everyone gets the quiz, plus a suprise phone call from Cheyenne.

Reverend Rory

Yeah - he SWEARS he's not gay.

Thanks for Listening.

Lullabies from Carson

Worst Little Podcast – Episode 027

DJ O Gnosis / Carson Cessna

That shirt just reinforces the muppet look.

Don’t drive listening to DJ O Gnosis!!! But first, some deathmetal.

We’ve got a little different show for you all this week – lots of new stuff and a quieter. gentler podcast . Carson Cessna awkwardly hangs out with us – YAY!! a return of the Awkward Silence game!! Nick and Rory did very little show prep – and it shows! HA! Seriously though, super busy week with lots of stuff, like Rory’s failed Date Night with the wifey and Nick still looking for a job.

Speaking of jobs, Chewie is back out workin’ the mines, so doesn’t join us this week, but we hope to have him back before Burning Man. (Stay tuned for next weeks Burning Man Spectaculare!!! Or as we like to call it, ‘The Spectacular BM”!)

The other big highlights of this show include some Italian Circumcision Rick’s Clips!!! He unearths some really revealing early samples of the Notorious R.A.D. as well as debuts some new ones. Plus – our very first commercial! One we made ourselves for Stingray Tattoo, so check THAT shit out.

Thanks for listening.

The Firebombing, Chaos, Stickers and ‘Love’

Worst Little Podcast – Episode 026

Todd Imus of the Firebombing

Todd and… nothing

“I’ve only listened to a few episodes. Is it usually this much of a trainwreck?”
– Todd Imus, directly after the recording stopped

Hello, Good Listener! It’s a pretty darn good show for you this week if’n I do say so m’self… and I do (most weeks anyway). We start out with a traditional folk song that our guests, The Firebombing, recorded at Dogwater. Rory has returned in good form and spirits. He critiques Nick and Rick’s performances the week before and is really quite supportive. Yep. That’s the story and I’m told I have to stick to it. And back from the fields of silver under the great state of Nevada is the big man- CHEWIE!!!! Don’t get too excited though, this was just a one-off. He’ll be gone for another couple of weeks after this, so gitchyer Wookie on while you can.

We sit down and (sweat it out) talk with The Firebombing, premiere purveyors of hardcore, anthemic and Americana rock in the Reno music scene. Todd Imus and Garrett Donovan were a lot of fun to hang out with in the studio, despite all the heat and nudity… Rory and Nick have a problem with that. Keeping their clothes on, that is. At any rate – Todd and ‘Mr. Perfect’ treat us to impromptu acoustic versions of a few tunes. At least one of them is going to make it onto ‘The CD’.

Also – listen carefully for your chance to win a Worst Little Podcast PRYZE PAKK. This first time, it’s easy…

Iceman and Maverick? *shudder*

OH!! Garrett ROCKS the Worst Quiz Ever – he scores right up there with Layla James (who could be be returning to WLP sometime soon). For a quiet guy, he’s got some things to say and secrets to spill. You just have to get him drunk enough and ask him a bunch of rapid-fire awkward questions! Todd score is okay, but he’s a ginger, so what do you really expect? Like I said, It’s actually a pretty good show this week. Thanks for listening.
