The Worst Little Podcast – Episode 22 (SIDE B)

Tom Gordon, Nick Ramirez and Rory Dowd at Dogwater Studios

Charlie's Angels we are not.

Hold on people – this is a long ride! We had to split this up into TWO episodes, ’cause it wouldn’t upload gooder enough.

We are so flipping lucky!!!! Tom Gordon of Imirage Sound Lab was hanging out with Nick at Burning Man when they hatched a plot for Tom to come into Dogwater Studios and share with us a whole CD of previously unreleased tracks by a variety of bands. Maybe Buring Man isn’t so bad after all…. nah. It’s still totally lame.

I don’t want to waste a lot of time on this blog post, because you have some serious listening to do – THREE HOURS of listening. I am not even kidding. It was a real treat to talk to Tom about his experiences recording at Granny’s Recording Studio during the 90’s. Lots of famous people visited that world-class facility over the years; but a lot of local bands recorded there as well. Tom brought us a lot of exclusive content that never saw the light of day, including songs from Psychobabble, Source, Convicted Innocence, Fall Silent, The Atomiks and more!!! Some are alternate versions, some never got released because the band broke up and some were seriously never meant for public consumption. There’s even some R&B and Gospel on there – also Worst Little Podcast firsts.

Knob monkey love.

Between the wizards, muggles, microphones, harmonics, the JDRF, Reno hardcore and backstage heartbreaks, we barely got to the songs! We actually didn’t even get to everything Tom brought this time, and he hasn’t even dipped into the current century! Automatic repeat booking. We hope you enjoy this show. It’s a lot of music and really long. It truly was a treat to have Tom share these experiences with us.

Thanks for listening!!!
