This week for our 550th episode, we have a personal hero of ours, family man, talented athlete, songwriter and brilliant guitarist Dave Berry of the well known rocking funk outfit Jelly Bread. 

Dick setting up Dave

We first talked with him way back in the first season of the podcast, 2011, towards the end of his then band PufferBilly. 

He then declared he was quitting his day job and going for full time musician, and taking his shot with powerhouse drummer Cliff Porter and Dave’s sister Jackie who sang with him in PufferBilly. 

Dave Berry is happy to be here

Well he did it. 

Jelly Bread played well over 200 shows a year for several years and established themselves as a tight professional level, funky jam band that never disappoints. 

But after the pandemic, tour fatigue, band personnel changes and a family crisis, Dave was led to work on a solo album with his sister. The results delivering beautiful blood harmonies and genuine human emotion. Musically and lyrically.

Pongo putting the DOG in Dogwater Studios!

We get the heart wrenching details and listen to a handful of sweet, soulful tracks as well as a couple live acoustic songs in the studio.

Dave’s stories were so vivid, interesting and relatable that we couldn’t find time for the quiz. 

Enjoy a real open, honest and touching episode with a real Reno rocker done good. 

Thanks for sharing with us Dave.

Singing his heart out for real

Life is short and we love you.

Thanks for listening.

This week we have a great zoom chat with Tyler Edwards from the NorCal metal group Greybush. 

Tyler Edwards

Tyler says the name is because they’re men of a certain age and the changing colors not unlike the foliage in the fall. This isn’t their first rodeo in the music scene and with age comes experience and twenty twenty hindsight. That being said these heavy metal devotees share their particular brand and can sometimes be found on a bill in the biggest little city with their buds The Latest Fashion, but more often they play in the bay area, Humboldt, Sacramento and beyond when they tour.  Tyler gives us the deets on commuting for shows from Missouri, why the new digs and how the band can function from such long distances.

GREYBUSH

We get several tracks from the new EP A Never Ending Search For Justice, including one dedicated to a member James, who recently left the band but is still a homie.

Tyler comes alive!

Tyler is super nice, hella funny, stoney, and a little self deprecating, so yeah, we hit it off. 

Chewie and Kadillac Kim give us the weekend hot shows and as per usual with new guests, we play a great round of the worst little quiz. 

So laugh with us, crank it up, throw your horns and bang your heads with Greybush. Thanks for being on the show Tyler! Life is short and we love you. Metal!

Holy shit! This week’s guests hail from one of our musical sister cities, Nevada City California.

Divine Defecation
Tony

With Tony on drums, “Poop”Nick on guitar and demonic vocals and Sage on bass.

“Poop” Nick
Sage

Devine Defecation are a tight dirty chunky Cookie Monster, stoner deathcore Heavy Metal thrash band,(I think that covers it) that are not to be poo poo’d! Needless to say they have riffs and a sense of humor, especially the potty variety. Very nice fellows who hauled their shit all the way to Dogwater Studios to hang out and rock for us. I hope they weren’t too pooped for the drive home. Thanks dudes. We loved your caca-funny of sound. 

Chewie digs it!

We shoot the shit about the Grass Valley and Sacramento metal scene, small town life and of course, all matters fecal. All kinds of shit. Bullshit, how shit happens, shitty jobs, eating shit figuratively and literally and shitting yourself. You know, our usual verbal diarrhea. 

Kim gives us the real shit on what went down at the  Reno punk rock flea market . 

As is our doody we divinely defecate another worst little quiz that doesn’t go down the toilet. 

This episode could have been a real turd but it wasn’t crappy at all. It was filthy, funny, a little juvenile and it rocked. You might even say it was the shit! I’d say possibly our number two episode of the season! 

So get out there this weekend and tear shit up with your homies at your favorite venue in the biggest little shitty! Thanks for listening and giving a shit about us. We love you. Poop.

Our guest this week is a man of many names, Freddie Fretless on Facebook, Jerry Leon in real life and his musical moniker Winnemucca Brown. He hitched  his wagon all the way from eastern Nevada, take a guess where specifically. That’s right we win more than a Mucca this week as joining Jerry is his beautiful wife Tessa and Chewie’s back!

Tessa AKA Mrs.Brown

Rick gives us dads, who couldn’t make it, the scoop on the Reno Punk Rock Flea Market’s latest spectacular event that fell on 4/20 (Kadillac Kim’s birthday! HBD! We love you!). 

Jerry gives us that intimate acoustipunk vibe and even brought his dog to meet Pongo and dog it up campfire style at the Dogwater studios. Dogs. 

Chewie’s Back!
This pleases Dogwater Dick greatly.

We also get a kickass track from  Jerry’s band LNOY(Listless Numbers of Youth) .WB gives us the skinny in Winnemucca events and even a little history to Chewbacca’s delight. 

A great head to head quiz between Mr and Mrs Brown and of course some suggestions for the upcoming week in Reno music. 

Thanks Jerry and Tessa! ‘Twas a great hangout!

Life is short and we love you.

Thanks for listening.

*we don’t know why but this episode disappeared, hence the repost. Enjoy!

For our last installment of this year’s Women’s March, we have our good friend and multi-talented queen of the scene, Rhiannon Box! 

Rhiannon Box

When she’s not styling hair, heading up a theater company, creating award winning short films, or jamming with her band Stabby Unicorn, you might catch her at a pinball tournament, or she just might be working on her new solo record for ToneMark Sounds. 

We get to listen to two new solo songs, some Stabby Unicorn and her acclaimed cover of Goodbye Horses. We think she’s the cat’s pajamas.

Rhiannon mixes her keyboards with an electronic soundboard thingy and Tony Ashworth is producing the album, adding a hint of industrial edge to the goth atmospheric vibes. 

We can’t wait to hear the new album and maybe even the return of Stabby Unicorn.

We do a quiz for fun since RhiBox hasn’t been on the show for a while. 

We also talk about the upcoming Cover Up 2024 show at the Alturas Cellar stage , put on by the incomparable Mark Earnest and featuring his band Manchild with Rhiannon covering a set of songs by The Cars. Other sets include Earnest’s other band Kanawha covering Soundgarden, the Scattering covering White Zombie, Mr. Johnson and His Loaded Dice covering the Misfits, Roxxy Collie covering REM and One Ton Dually covering Nirvana. That’s right, see Reverend Rory and Nick butcher the classics! One night only! Seriously though, the bands have been working hard and it should be hell of a barn burner. 

Thanks Rhiannon and thank you listeners. 

Life is short and we love you. Goodnight ladies!

MacNuggits: Phoning It In For

Room a zoom Zoom! Kim, Nick and Dogwater Dick were all able to podcast from the comfort of their own phones or computers as did our guest Dan Abbott from the band Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits.

These songs are all different genres mixed, telling detailed epic stories and it’s funny. They remind me of Frank Zappa, Tenacious D and Ween. The way the band plays whatever they want, what the song and story call for, whatever style. Folk, punk, metal, brass section, progressive and harmonies. Performed with precision and highly entertaining. 

Zooming it like it’s 2020

You can find them at bobbyjoeebola.com and all the platforms. They have a bunch of fantastic videos on YouTube as well. Go check them out.

Dan aces the quiz and

Nick and Kim review the Cover Up show and give you some hot show tips for another jam-packed musical weekend in the biggest little city.

Dick and Dan talk Star Trek and Shatner’s earlier work. 

 Why not? After all,

we’re the worst little podcast, we’re talking out of our ass! 

Thanks for listening.

We’re halfway through our Women’s March and this week we’re joined by our friend and local folk rock hero Kat Heart! We were going to have one of her bands (Sierra Sirens, Kat Heart and the Business) on but the stars just didn’t align for that. Not to worry, Kat packed up her pedal board full of amazing textures, loops and even a pedal for her old school landline telephone microphone and headed right on over to the Dogwater Studios.

Kat Heart

We were delighted by her one woman musical menagerie. 

We seem to catch up with Kat every other year, so it’s been amazing to see the commitment, growth and development of her unique psychedelic soundscapes and soulful expressions. Her voice is sometimes soft and gentle and others gritty and powerful. Always interesting and always entertaining. One of Reno’s great ladies making music and memorable performances. Kat, we salute you. Keep up with Kat at katheart.net as well as Instagram and Facebook.

Kat and her landline microphone

Kadillac Kim gives us the hot shows for your weekend enjoyment and we say farewell to a couple of dear friends and artists who have passed and where and when to see their art and celebrate their lives. Safe home Shannon O’Keeffe and Jess Holden, you truly will be missed. 

Nick and Kat

To all the ladies. Thank you. We see you. We hear you. We love you. Keep going!

Thanks for listening.

After illness and snowstorms, we are back!

Kicking off our annual Women’s March salute to local ladies who make music, we have a blast from the past, singer songwriter Robin Robinson!

Robin and Nick were friends back in the 90’s, attending open mics and local shows at old school Reno venues like the Blue Lamp and the Zephyr.

Rick meets Robin

They reunited at last year’s Marianarchy music festival where Robin played a beautiful set with a dancer performing with her on a few songs throughout. It was enchanting and special.

Not being able to catch up at the event, Nick was stoked Robin could come in and talk for a spell. 

Robin Robinson folkin’ around!

We play a fun round of the worst little quiz including close encounters with rock legends. Robin also gets the lowdown on the Nowhere Nevada movie.

It was a sweet, chill, and fun hang with a new old friend. Thanks for sharing your songs with us Mrs. Robinson! And thanks worst little listeners (especially our Patreon members! Patreon.com/worstlittlepodcast) for joining us. Life is short, and we love you.

Here we see our spirit animals comingling in the wild. SWOON!

For Valentines we get bromantic. Three rad dudes from established Reno bands like Ostracized, Grimedog and Filipendejo among others, Lucas Grimes guitar and vocals, Tyrell Cruz bass and vocals and Kevin Montoya drums and vocals are the new super group and power trio BANG MARRY KILL.

Kevin aka Felipendejo

Funky and reminiscent of funny jam acts like Ween, Primus and the more obscure Gluey Brothers. 

They’re a rocking dance band really. Super joyful and lighthearted with heavy grooves and cool psychedelic surf tones with a squeeze of desert rock. And Dessert Rock if you’re hungry.

Tyrell

We had a blast with our friends in Bang Marry Kill and get to know Tyrell a little better with a round of the worst little quiz. 

Lucas

You can get down with them at the upcoming blood-spattered valentine show at Alturas’ Cellar stage. Keep collaborating and creating new music Reno! We are definitely loving the results! 

Happy VD! Life is short and we love you. Thanks for listening. Thank you so hard!
