The Worst Little Podcast -S5 E4

Can you git up wit’cha git down? We got Failure Machine on with us this week. That’s right, the (second) triumphant return of our beloved FIRST production assistant, Spencer Kilpatrick and his bandmates, Clinton Philbin, Harry Mahony and Zac Curtis. I know – I hear your surprise – there are now FOUR members of Failure Machine, because they added a horn section (there’s actually about to be five, but the bassist isn’t official yet, so fuck him).

The Failure

We also take a call form a representative for PostWar. Francis? Frederick? Franklin? Don’t know the guy, was really confusing, possibly on drugs. Luckily, PostWar frontman, Sutafe Bogale, came homand saved us from a trainwreck of a phone call. They have a show TONIGHT at The Knitting Factory with Bluff Caller and Cad Bane. You should chekkit out!

The Machine

If you have to wait for the weekend for your party time, don’t forget to check out Failure Machine at St. James Infirmary Friday night, with The Letters Home (LA) and Hungry Skinny (SF)! Good ol’ Spencer says it’s gonna be a wild rockin’, foot tapppin’ dancin’ kind of night!

The Saxyness

I would be remiss if I did not mention the addition – nay! the doubling of members of the band since last we saw them. Failure Machine has added a horn section! I like to affectionately call them “The Hairy Sac Blowers”, but Harry Mahony and Zac Curtis seemed to be less than thrilled. Fuck them too then, It’s my show. Nice guys, though.

“I like to blow things!”

At any rate, Thanks For Listening!

Worst Little Podcast – Episode 024

How could you NOT trust faces like these?

Hot enough for ya? Actually, we’ve all been enjoying the pretty awesome weather we’ve been having this summer. HOWEVER, the studio is quite different. Our cooling system is mildly noisy – an ancient window unit and a ceiling fan with a 2″ wobble (no shit – there have been times I’ve thought it was going to shake itself loose and kill me).
We start the show off this week remembering a good friend of ours, Jim Martin. He passed away this past Friday, surrounded by loved ones. Jim was a prolific director, educator, patron of the arts and a generally “hardcore awesome” guy. His family plans to organize a celebration of his awesomeness in the next few weeks. Check Brüka and Good Luck MacBeth for details soon. Jim’s final directorial work, Oedipus: the King will continue its run, through July 30th at Brüka Theater. Additionally there will be a staged reading of his adaptation of Clytemnestra on July 24th, also at Brüka. Jim was a visionary and active force in the Reno arts community. He will be sorely missed.
 In studio we have some of the people we’ve tricked into advertising with us our sponsors, Faith and Josh from Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor! Normally, they say a lot more but the microphones scared them. Or maybe it was the heat. And the beer. Probably the beer. We are happy to have them on board with us (as if you couldn’t tell). They were less than happy that we had them come over ans sit in the sweat lodge for a 5 minute plug. Ah! The joys of fake radio. Josh and Faith end their segment powering through the first and fastest Rapid Fire Quiz.
After the break, we shoot the breeze with notorious Reno rockers Walk of Shame, on the road back from self-destruction, playing great music while they do it (at least, on the CD they sound pretty good). Jeff Done, Suta Bogale and Dan Harmon make it in with us.  Preston didn’t make it because he’s a freaking flaky-ass drummer and we don’t like him anyway! *grumble grumble* We share some spectacular bad ideas we’ve all had over the years.
Nick has an update on the Hella Acapella Saga. Rory throws some shout-outs to some new listeners (is it YOU???) and has presents. Chewie is back out in the field (…well, really under it) and Rick hasn’t done a goddamned thing because he’s on vacation – for real this time!
We had a lot of fun this week and hope you do too. Thanks for listening.
