But FIRST we are joined briefly by excellent Reno songwriter, Greg Gilmore. Greg is talking to us about/premiering his new single, What Am I? Check out his Facebook page for video’s and music links. Let’s listen to some music!

But back to Basement Tapes. Basement Tapes describes their music as retro, 60s, raw, high-energy garage rock. Revisiting a time when music had music had soul, with post-modern punk attitude, melodic, grooving bass lines, thunderous rolling drums, powerful crashing guitar riffs and a harmonious couple on vocals. Basement Tapes plays straight-forward simple rock and roll.

Hello and welcome to the Worst Little Podcast!

The-Worst-Little-Podcast-2017-9-11 – S7 E27 Download Link

Thankfully we’re not burning and we’re not flooding! Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the recent natural disasters. We love you. This week we’re joined by JUST Rory and Rick because they told me not to come in. It’s okay because I really *was* scissoring the drummer from SWIGS. You guys were all spot on. ANYWAY! Y’all are in for some great instrumental surf punk, some talk about old naked Satanists, and jokes about me (Kadillac Kim, in case you’re not following along) hooking up with our podcast guests! We even have new interns to make fun of! Don’t worry guys, you too can be like me with enough ambition and a vagina… oh wait. As fun as it is to talk about incest and Satanism, we actually have a band here, so let’s get into some music.

Riptide Bandits have been around for a “really long time”, according to band members. They are so legendary they don’t even need to know when they formed. It is as if they always existed. They might be vampires.

Gina Rose and Pat Meet The Worst Little Podcast

S7 E25

Hello and welcome to this weeks episode of the Worst Little Podcast, broadcast from high above the city of Reno fucking Nevada!

Nick, Chewy, Rick and myself, Kadillac Kim, are here to bring you this week’s podcast! Regretfully (for him), the Reverend Rory Dowd is not around this week, but we get plenty of shots in at his expense! This week, as always, we have something really special for our listeners. We have not one, but TWO talented guests in the studio for your listening pleasure. And let me tell you, we talked about pleasure (*winknod*). But really, we have at least one and a half freaks in the room tonight. We’re talking about rope bondage, secret middle names, and how I got the name Kadillac Kim. Spoilers, it was in the parking lot of the Bunny Ranch when I was cornered by strippers in the bathroom of a double wide trailer. So that’s a thing… ANYWAY! We get off on the right foot with Reno country/Americana darling, Gina Rose. Gina will leave you with goosebumps after her first song. Don’t go anywhere or you’ll regret not hearing everything she has to say and sing!

 

Gina Rose is a singer-songwriter based out of Reno, Nevada. She formed her first band three years ago and has been playing guitar and writing music since she was a youngster (8years old!!). She began her music career opening for punk bands in Reno basements. Despite being a folk singer she won audiences over, with fans telling her that she’s just as heavy as the punk bands she opened for. As Nick points out, though, punk is just outlaw rock & roll and Gina is outlaw country. Her music can be found on her Bandcamp page and she has a new album in the works. She has a show coming up in Virginia City, like her on Facebook to be notified when the event is posted. Do yourselves a favor and don’t miss it or any of her shows! On behalf of the Worst little podcast, thank you miss Gina Rose for your time, some great conversation, and for the bone chilling tunes. You’re going places .

Pat also hosts open mic comedy nights all over Reno. Listen to Pat’s quick and dry wit as he discusses the major things going on in the Reno comedy scene.
