Week 21 of the pandemic and we still don’t know what we are doing, but we’ve got great guests! This week, Reno punk rock legend, Pierre Marche (Screeching Weasel, Engine Fire, SuckaPunch), and erstwhile sidekick, Chris Fox (Vampirates, Boss’ Daughter, Voted Best Band), tune into the the Zoom Room with us to talk about the craft, Pierre’s new album and the changing times.
Pierre’s most recent project is “An Autumn Afternoon”, a second collection of solo tunes. Recorded at Pus Cavern in Sacramento, Marche collaborated extensively with Chris Fox. They go in some detail about how that process works for them, from inspiration to tracking.
You can get a digital version of “An Autumn Afternoon” on Pierre’s bandcamp. Easiest way is to search for the album name or follow that link.
Thanks For Listening!
Hello! We’re live from the recent, frozen past this week with podcast virgins Condemned Existence! We’re talking about the state of the Reno scene, Rory throws some shade (and light!), and we ask important questions like “does playing rock and roll get you laid?” (spoiler: not really). It’s always terrifying when the gang bang starts with this much enthusiasm. Press play!
Condemnded Existence describes their sound as a blend of fast thrash parts with groovy rhythms and breaks. They most recently opened for the amazing Ned Flanders themed metal band, Okily Dokily! Their next show is March 22 in Concord. Follow their social medias to keep an eye out for their EP release happening soon.

(Check out that episode here.) Listen up to hear Tinder murder stories, learn about the band’s drunken alter egos, and to hear what is next for them. Press play!
Voted Reno’s most fun party band (by us), Boss’ Daughter is Chris Fox – Guitar/Vocals, Danny Paul – Bass/Vocals, and Jamie Locks on the Drums, joined by John Underwood – horns/banjo.
Thanks to the band for being here this week! We love the folks in Boss’ Daughter and all their various other bands and projects.

Whoa baby boy did we have some fun with this week’s guest, Skew Ring! Little is known about this mysterious five piece band out of Reno, Nevada. That’s what we’re here for! By the end of this episode you will know far too much. Sorry, not sorry. Listen up to hear what the excellent Reno rock band, Skew Ring, has to say/play (spoilers: it’s mostly gay jokes).
Skew Ring has been around a short time and even after this podcast, little is still known about these elusive beasts. They have recently played The Saint and The Holland Project and there’s talk of an EP coming out soon. Keep an eye on their Instagram for updates on where you can see them in the wild. And trust me, you should definitely see them in the wild.
Thanks for coming on the show, Skew Ring!
