Blacklisted – Still Pissing Off the Neighbors

S8 E2

Welcome! Kim and Rory played hooky this week, but fortunately our other hosts Nick, Chewy, and Dogwater Dick were present to pick up the slack. Press play right now to hear some SUPER SECRET (okay, it’s not secret, but it is SUPER) Grimtones news that you’ll only hear on the Worst Little Podcast! This weeks show has everything – astrology, tales of auto-erotic asphyxiation, and uncomfortable silences. Pretty much in that order!

Our guest this week is Reno Jackson 5 cover band experimental, psychedelic alt-rock band, Blacklisted. Established in 2015, Blacklisted is what happens when you form a band while on drugs (calm down, it’s legal now!). The band is busy writing new music and is planning on a spate of February and March shows.

Heyo, Reno! At first I wasn’t in the mood to write this blog but I’ve had like half a bottle of wine and I’ve been watching videos of baby goats in pajamas so…. let’s do this! *two hours later* Do you guys even know how many cute baby animal compilations there are on the internet? Do you?! I thought the internet was for porn and publishing terrible music podcasts. I was wrong. Seriously, check out these baby owls. I mean come on…

ANYWAY! I’m here to do the thing with Qarin (pronounced car-in) this week! These guys were so talented and entertaining. Listen up for deviants, dick jokes, and of course, METAL.

Thanks a bunch for being with us this week, Qarin. You guys are the real deal and you’re also super funny and hella nice. I hope I’m not ruining your reputations right now or anything.  MAKE SURE you go to Jub Jub’s Friday night to see Qarin’s first show since some major shit went down with the band. Celebrate, wear a costume, and save a few bucks for a beer! I’ll leave you with an eloquent toast from the band, “we’ll fuck ’em standing, we’ll fuck ’em lying, if they had wings we’d fuck ’em flying, and when she’s dead and long forgotten, we’ll dig her up and fuck her rotten. Sorry, not sorry.
