The Worst Little Podcast – 2015 03 02

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?!?!

Dave Richards

Dave has found something!

Lew Zaumeyer

“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)

Chris Fox

Chris didn’t get up all night.

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:

End of the Line – Gettin’ Punked Up

Piss off, wankers!

The Worst Little Podcast – S4 E43 – Download Link

Sometimes, even doing something for the love gets frustrating and turns into a grind. Then punk rock happens and everything feels better. End of the Line comes into the studio and kicks a little insensible sense back into our heads this week. End of the Line, a Reno punk rock band, is Milton Bradshaw, Bre Fretz and Rich Davies. They’re yell-y, crass, irreverent, offensive and totally wonderful.

Rich Davies with a visual effect on his face.

Rich has a face for radio!

Playing in this particular lineup for a fairly short time, End of the Line has been making a mark and is gaining traction in the Reno music scene in recent months. We had a late cancellation and they made the time to swoop in and fill the show this week on short notice, which always puts points up on the big board. They lay down a handful of tunes for us and bang out some old school. “Hippie Chick” is a standout tune, as is “Lovesong”… really… enjoy!

Bre Fretz, pointing at the mic

Bre thinks WLP is Number 1!

Milton Bradshaw smiling greatly.

A Milton Lisa smile?

Also in the house is man-about-town, and good friend of the show, Dave Masud. Dave stopped by to plug his upcoming event, Skate Jam 2015, hosted in the showroom at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor. The event will be all-ages, featuring bands, skate ramps, contests, raffles, SKATE RAMPS, prizes, food, drinks, SK8 RAMPZ and 12 BANDS!! Dave is workin’ hard to keep punk rock and skating alive for the people who really matter – the freakin kids. So, go to Skate Jam. For the kids. And Dave.

Dave Masud with patterned lights around him.

It’s Dr. Dave! Hi, Dr. Dave!

Nick, Rory, Chewie and Rick talk about “Tooth of Crime“, kids, shows and a bunch of other crap. Lots of awesome shows coming up.
Anyhoo… thanks for Listening!

Season Three is winding to a close. Things will be ALL NEW in Season Four. Like getting the podcast out on time (still looking for the right sucker applicant to fill the position of Production Intern – contact Reverend Rory to make that happen).

 

Chris Fox of Voted Best Band

 

But still, this is a fun show. This here is VOTED BEST BAND!!! They are an underrated rock talent in the Reno are, hailing from the rural community of Black Rock, NV. Inspired by the music of their now far off youth, they continue to play the anthems and dancing music that first sent them down the life of punk rock losers.

Tony Grouch of Voted Best Band

 

These Voted Best Band guys are seriously wasting their talent in this project, with pedigrees that include some of the mightiest Reno bands including The Vampirates, The Riptide Bandits, Suckapunch, Twelve Gauge Facelift and more. This kind of star power doesn’t just happen overnight. It takes years of meticulous study and rehearsal to write the kind of songs they do. Which is to say none.

Alex Maddy of Voted Best Band

 

This episode was a lot of fun and the boys came to play ball with the quiz. I forget everything that was said, but it was really funny. Bear with us, it felt like a slow start before it grew to our normal cacophony. But maybe that’s a good thing.

Dave Masud of Voted Best band
I don’t even know what I’m saying anymore. I rarely make sense. I doubt anyone is reading this.
Anyway – thanks for listening.

The Ax Man

 

We had them on with a CD before, but this time we got them live – The Vampirates!!! Dave, Chris, Chris and Pat set up in the studio and blasted us with 10 or 12 songs in our 90 minutes together. They are leaving on their ten year anniversary tour this week and – you can’t even tell how excited they are. I mean, The Vampirates are easily the most laid back band we have ever had in the studio – nothing phases them! Then they kick you in the face with killer, homegrown Reno punk rock.

The Front Man

We also want to send our personal condolences to our friend, Cam Hog, and her family after the tragic loss of her brother, Ashton Pike, in a motorcycle accident last week. If you haven’t been following the story, Pike was a local bartender and single father of a 2-year old daughter. His death was obviously sudden and is leaving a large hole in their lives, especially his daughter. This Friday night, 3/1/2012, Rise Nightclub will be raising money from their cover charge and accepting donations for him and his family. All proceeds of the show (and last weekend’s benefit at 40 Mile Saloon) will go to pay for memorial costs; any remaining funds will go to a trust fund support his young daughter. Please get out and show some Reno love and help take care of our own!

The Bass-tard

They should be back in time to play at Marianarchy 2013, which will be killer since they haven’t played that in a few years. They’ll be calling us from the road every few weeks to let us know how the tour is going.
