Nothing hotter than the Sofa King Miserable Heat Wave, amiright?
Wasn’t sure what to expect when I booked Paul Allen on the show this week. I mean, I knew he was a good musician and quirky lyricist – I liked that about him – but, the dude, like, only ever plays in living rooms and porches, right?!?! I wasn’t sure if Paulie was up to it, frankly. He might have frozen up or even peed a little in the studio. Then Rick would have had to rub his nose in it, whilst bellowing, “NOOO!!!!” (Yeah, I just said “whilst”. Is there a problem?
(Other than my blatant aggression and latent personality split?)) I am happy to say though, Paul came through and really knocked our socks off. He only froze up during the Worst Little Quiz, but still got a respectable score and beat himself silly.
Lots of great stuff happened in Reno, lots of great stuff coming up – I think we talked about a lot of it during the show. I’m pretty sure we did, but it’s kind of a blur – and I was sober this week! The Notorious R.A.D. is back in Reno and will be cutting up some new drops in the studio soon (that means to record funny things, it is NOT a euphemism for drug use – what do you think we are, Californians?). We had a lot of fun on this episode, and only got a little bit gross. That happens in our new segment – Dogwater Dick’s Disgisting Definitions. It’s really, well, not good, but funny as hell.
Please don’t forget to come out and see the live show! What live show? The Worst Little Open Mic in Reno, that live show! Every Monday, Nick Chewie and Rev. Rory will be down at ye olde Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor hosting the open mic. We want to see new faces, people jamming, people bringing their new songs, new bands, parts of old bands – we even have a drum kit and bass rig set up every week for anyone to come down and borrow. We’ve had a great couple weeks so far, and want to keep it up. Even if you can’t come every week, please still stop by every once in a while. (NEW BANDS: this is really kindof optimal exposure and a chance to play for a live audience; don’t be dumb.)
Anyways, thanks for listening!
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.
“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…
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.
