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!
Congrats on stumbling upon our humble little podcast! This week our hosts sat down with the Adorables to talk some utter nonsense and hear some really great political folk punk.
The Adorables are a bit of a Reno super-group. All three members have been involved in the Reno music scene for years, with impressive stints in some of Reno’s finest rock bands like Stabby Unicorn, Pinky Polanski and Liver Scars (among others!). The Adorables are playing Marianarchy for the first time this December.
Thanks for being on the show, guys! We can’t wait to hear what comes next for you!

Choogin, baybay, choogin!
I am so conflicted about this episode!!!! First, we have the cast from “Tooth of Crime” on, which is so awesome; second, Jamie hosted the show in its entirety, which is good and bad
(good that she can handle it, bat that my job is at stake now); and finally – it’s the last episode ever from beautiful suburban Sparks! What is this world coming to?!?!
“Tooth of Crime” is a play written, and then later re-written, by Sam Sheppard. It involves live music, cars and fire. It is dangerous theater. It is a play that has not always been well received. It is a play that may have never been done correctly, even when directed by the author. A small group of actors from Reno believe that they can pull it off like no one has.
Director Dave Richards brings most of his cast and the band to the studio with him to talk about the upcoming performances. He is joined by Lew Zaumeyer (Hoss), Jill Marlene (Becky Lou), Scott Dundas (Chaser), Andy Luna (Crow), Nick Ramirez (Meera), Rory Dowd (Rudio Ran) from the cast and also Jeff Done, Pat Mayfield, Dave Masud and Chris Fox from the Reno “Tooth of Crime” band. For a last session, we crammed so many people in that the whole band AND Reverend Rory had to sit in the living room! That’s why Jamie got to host the show! (I knew you were wondering)
If you’re interested in seeing the show, Tickets are for sale at Jub Jub’s, The Melting Pot and online.
For a final episode at the old house, we couldn’t have asked for a better set of guests – some old friends, some brand new to the show. ANd we had fun. We will be taking a one week hiatus so Dogwater Dick can move ye olde studios into Reno! Crazy things are afoot in the neighborhood. Chekkit what’s been happening down the block:
Thanks for Listening!
Dicks! Lots of Dicks!
The holidays are almost here and as the cold weather bursts upon us, so does the new sensation sweeping the Reno Nation – Boss’ Daughter! Chris Fox, Danny Paul and Jamie Locks comprise this new Reno punk band. With a depth of experience behind them, they kick some serious ass. Boss’ Daughter has been pretty active the last couple of months to the delight of scores of jaded show-goers.
I also just want to say: Chris likes dicks. Lots of dicks. Find out how he gets dozens of dicks late in the show! That being said: this show was a blast. We had a lot of fun talking
at to the band, about their evolution, the grammatical complexities of their name and drinking. They don’t have a CD quite yet, but are working on it. Beyond that though, Boss Daughter can be found on facebook and will be playing at the Alley this weekend and Jub Jub’s with the Ataris on Dec. 6th.
Coming up this week at Blazing Mics we have good friend of the show, Larry Cooper hosting. It’ should be a great time and we’d love to see you. Enjoy Reno ComiCon if you’re attending the perennial nerd event.
Thanks for listening!
