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.
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.
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.
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!
We had a rocking good time hanging out with Trevor Lame-Vocals, Guitar Cheyenne Cha Cha-Bass and Jake Sticks-the drummer who are now collectively known as brand new baby low fi sonic punk band Drought.
Only a half a year in the life of Drought and they’re already landing some great gigs and of course their debut on our show. Well, that’s not entirely true, drummer Jake also plays bass in doom metal outfit Ozymandias and has been on WLP a couple of times. But never isolated to the drum room, separate from everyone, so it was a whole new experience.
They play us their loose and primal punk rock, warts and all to our delight. They’re not polished but they’re chaotic, salty, playful and a little dangerous. Rock and roll rebels fresh from the garage that Jake plans to turn into a venue.
We have a dirty little quiz and Kadillac Kim shares the fantastic lineup she has booked for this year’s Reno Punk Rock Flea Market. It’s always a treat to meet new bands and watch them grow. We will be keeping our eyes on Drought for sure.
You can catch them February 16 in Nevada City at the Fern with Slutzville and the Arguments as well as headlining The Blood Spattered Valentines Day Show February 17 at the Cellar Stage (aka Alturas) in Reno, with Two Man Lemmon Band, The Poor Devils and next week’s WLP guest; Bang Marry Kill.
Proof that Reno keeps it rocking, new bands are being birthed all the time and we’re glad we get to share a little bit of that raw beauty with you. That’s what we’re here for, after all… Life is short and we love you.
Thanks for listening!
This week on WLP we welcome Nevada City’s No Healer with Justin on drums, Barry guitar and vocals, and Blake on bass. They are a genuine, sonic garage, kickass rock and roll outfit. With influences like the Stooges, Dead Moon and the Sonics this power trio knows how to keep it raunchy, hooky, fast paced and wild.
They’re also funny, with a great chemistry, musically and as bandmates. This became apparent after a juicy worst little quiz.
No Healer is only a couple years old and we hope they stick around to rock the region and beyond for a long time.
They have some music on the usual streaming platforms and their next show is at RMU in Truckee California with The Pedaling Mongos. Guaranteed to be a barn burner. You can keep up with them @Nohealerheals on Instagram and Bandcamp.
Thanks for making the journey guys, we had a blast getting to know you.
Keeping it rock and roll there’s a hot show this weekend at the Cellar at Alturas on Saturday night February 3 with Pussy Velour, Eddie and the Subtitles and Glitter Bats.
Rock and Roll will never die!
Get some. Thanks for listening!
We are back with folkin’ funny lady Canyon White!
After a lengthy discussion about colonoscopies and cheeseburgers, we dive right into catching up with this longtime northern Nevada musical nomad, and friend of the show.
Canyon always has a full schedule including hosting open mic sessions, radio shows and acoustic performances.
She is embarking on her One Hit Wonder tour and living 2024 with un-resolutions. Canyon is a lot of fun, and we wish her well in her future endeavors, perhaps including a children’s book and album? We think she’d be great at it.
You can find Canyon White on Facebook, Spotify and other streaming platforms.
Life is short and we love you.
Thanks for listening!
Howdy Reno neighbors and neighborenos! We are back with a fresh new band to meet and explore.
It’s 2024 and the young folks are still punk rocking for the betterment of mankind and for the sheer fun, absurdity and love of it all. These antiwar, pro equality anarcho-punx, Death Means Profit are comprised of Lilith vox, Gwen guitar, Silly bass, and Colin drums. They all hail from different regions of northern Nevada and 3/4 are graduating high school this year.
They bring the youthful exuberance and primal kick in the pants the music scene always needs. It’s got a skate punk vibe with the spirit of both English punk, like Subhumans and SoCal hardcore like the Germs. It’s a chaotic underground sound, short songs with a ton of progressive angst. Total freedom to do whatever they want, all making for a wild spontaneous and unpredictable live performance.
Their next appearance will be at the Reno Punk Rock Flea Markets next event. Punk Rock Prom? More on that later from our very own Kadillac Kim, who met Death Means Profit at Neutral Ground at the Holland Project and we just want to thank her for booking the band this week. Kim rules!
Thank you worst little listeners.
Life is short and we love you.
Welcome back and happy new year! Season 14 kicks off with the hardcore metal act The Latest Fashion!
With local luminaries in the Reno music scene, Chris Tuffino on drums, Benjamin Tyler Brown on bass, Tony Jensen on guitar, Corey Nuckolls also on guitar, and Jeremy Granata bringing the monster vocals. They’re all amazing musicians from other notable bands like Twelve Gauge Facelift, Vampirates, In This Moment and Fervence, just to name a few. They’re like a Reno hardcore super group!
Super tight, super heavy and super rocking. You can tell they all love and enjoy performing with each other. They have genuine chemistry and they’re funny! We had a blast getting to know them and their music, live!
YOU can catch them live, January 20th at Virginia Street Brewhouse opening for Fear Factory, with Cyanate and Orbit Culture. Check in with them on Facebook and Instagram.
It’s great to be back with you worst little listeners. Thanks for 13 fabulous seasons and here’s to another round in 2024! Let the games begin!
Join us for aur annual holiday episode and WLP Season 13 finale!
It’s family, friends, kids and chaos.
We’ve got a Robert Earl Keen Christmas song from our buddy Breck Lee Durham (Trouble Show), a big cast that dwindles as we go, a few Christmas wishes, crying children, the Elvis story, therapy talk and a festive closing number by Last One Down.
An action packed tradition, drawing us to a close for 2023.
We hope your holidays are full of love and light.
See you in January for our season 14 premiere with The Latest Fashion!
Thanks for listening. We love you.
It’s an OG WLP this week with all original hosts including Chewie, gathering in celebration of our Sagittarians, Rory, Nick and Rick, winding down season 13 and looking forward to the annual Xmas finale episode, a nice little break and our Season 14 premiere!
Music provided by One Ton Dually (w/Reverend Rory!), Roxxy Collie, Glitter Bats, Liver Scars, Phat Couch and Gunshot Licker, all featuring our host Nick, on drums or bass. Yeah, a little self-indulgent, but hey, it’s his birthday.
Yep, smack dab betwixt Rory and Dogwater Dicks birthdays is Nicks birthday. So, we thought it would be fun to celebrate with you dear listeners.
Enjoy these old men recapping Reverend Rory’s birthday Roast, tales of Reno music lore and pre internet debauchery.
Life is short and we love you!
Thanks for listening.
All dressed up and ready to go but wouldn’t you know it, as usual the Triflin’ Bitches LIVE episode was not to be. First it was Covid a couple years back, forcing a zoom episode, then another unexpected drama with a band member breaking up right before their next appearance, leading to a lackluster episode with bad Cure covers, and finally, today’s show was to be their live triumphant return with full band, and new songs, but of course the band’s luck is hard and after a house fire and a car wreck, only half of the Bitches were able to make it. No one died or was injured, thank goodness.
You’ll have to listen for more on that.
What we do get is a humble visit with Scott Sherwood the bassist and Logan Bongiovani, lead Bitch on guitar and vocals. Logan is also the main songwriter /self-professed thief, inspired by pop culture, unapologetically lifting lyrics, melodies and sometimes even riffs from music, comedy and movies, to create something new.
With John Frederick on keyboards and Scott Hauder on drums, the newest recordings from our very own Dogwater Studios are fantastic. Pop punk, hard living, humor, horror and gothic vibes blend for a cool unique production.
We had a blast catching up with these longtime friends.
Speaking of longtime friends, our leader on indefinite hiatus, Thee Reverend Rory Dowd is celebrating his 50th revolution around the sun with a Roast! Sure to be delicious! Music and comedy at the Cellar stage at Alturas bar Friday December 8th. Come on out and celebrate with us, we’d love to see you!
Thanks to the Triflin’ Bitches, someday we’ll get you live.
And a big thank you to our dear listeners.
Life is short and we love you. Good night bitches!
Our WLP correspondent Sophia Shortz does it again with an excellent booking for the show. New black metal shoe gaze group Vakker, with Ryan on drums, Chris on guitar, Noah on bass and Erin throwing down the vocals.
It was a great hang where we get a little history, and tracks currently titled Roman numerals I, II & III from their demo session with recent WLP guest, Tony Ashworth of ToneMark Sounds and doom stoner metal outfit KANAWHA.
The black metal influence is definitely there but the music has hints of Fugazi, and Deftones. These tracks are all long and epic with samples that set the tone of life and death, loss and grief. Heavy stuff, dark but really interesting and unique.
We found the band to be charming, intelligent, professional but not uptight, goal oriented and driven.
We have a quick round of the worst little quiz and find out who eats burgers, who frequents convenient stores and who had decent middle school experiences. You can see Vakker live January 20th with The Scattering and Heterophobia at the Cellar at Alturas.
All in all another fantastic episode of the worst little podcast in the world.
Life is short and we love you.
Thanks for listening!
