Bryan Jones – The Numerology of Buffalo Moses

S9 E2 – Ice and snow be damned! Nothing stops the podcast, especially not when we have a guest like Bryan Jones to grace the studio. To catch you up to speed, Bryan is a seasoned Reno musician, notably with Buster Blue, but consistently with his own solo work, including his current project, Buffalo Moses. After a brief sojourn in the far off hinterlands of… Seattle, Jones returns to Reno to really sabotage launch his career by making an appearance on our show.

The conversation swings about wildly as we relentlessly pepper Jones with questions, often simultaneously. He calmly answers most of our questions, with the patience of a weary teacher dealing with unruly children. The music, of course, is top-notch – including some brand-new WLP EXCLUSIVE tracks.

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.
