We’re back from Rick’s summer break and ready to pod the cast again! Back in the saddle with our new friends from Winnemucca, High Desert Habit. With Cassandra Luvlee on bass, “OG” Orin George on drums and Eric Mercado on guitar and vocal. 

High Desert Habit

 We get some tracks from their upcoming album recorded at Tin Roof Recordings in Fallon. 

Grief, love and loss are often themes, stories of real-life experiences. Eric says it’s how he releases his grief, through music, and hopes he can reach others who are dealing with it.  It’s very human and relatable. Pretty catchy too.

We also find out how Ricks annual trek to Oakland California for the Mosswood Meltdown turned out. Kim and Nick talk about MidTown’s Dancing in the Streets.  We have nice deep, hard R rated quiz and of course, your upcoming hot shows. 

Another solid episode with a rocking country band who are always grinding and hitting the road again soon. You can find them on all the usual platforms and socials. Thanks for hanging out with us y’all.

We had a cozy healing session with thee magic man himself Mr Larry Cooper. 

Larry is a talented multi-instrumentalist whose musical hustles include being the bassist for artsy pop rockers Roxxy Collie and often sitting in with his homies in the Grimtones or maybe you’ve been blown away by his solo work. His debut solo album LARRY COOPER MUST DIE is out on all major platforms and vinyl records are on the way.

It’s a journey through recovery and Larry plays nearly every instrument on it. It is soulful, mixing styles and influences the whole way through, keeping the listener engaged. Sometimes the songs arrive from moments of clarity and immediate improvisation. Others are written meticulously. Must Die leaves quite the impression. It is a concept album and should be experienced as such. It reveals a real person and true artist.

Larry Cooper live in the Dogwater Studios

We shoot the shizzy on the two and a half years it took to get the album out and the reasons for its creation. Larry dives deep within himself revealing struggles, enlightenment and hope. 

The conversation was heavy and funny with huge heart and sincerity . 

We get a couple tracks from the record and a couple live in studio performances. 

Larry is now a five timer on the show; therefore, we felt no need to quiz him again.

The Rev. says farewell but not goodbye, promising to return to hosting occasionally

Big daddy Rory says farewell for now, after hosting the last three episodes. We of WLP salute you Rev. See you next hall pass. 

Thanks for a great episode, Larry. We love you. Thanks for listening folks, we love you too.

This week’s guests are industrial dark wave songsters Voidsinger. Casey Fritz and Rob Pelikan’s music is like Love and Rockets mixed with New Order and maybe a dash of Ministry’s With Sympathy. Incorporating hip hop and grunge and just about any genre they like. They have made ten albums in a year and a half. It’s freaking crazy. They chalk up their prolific output to chemistry. 

Rob Pelikan and Casey Fritz

Rob brings the goth new wave vibe and Casey brings the grunge and punk vibes both sharing a rebellious outsider point of view. They’re also joined by Casey’s computer, leaving them to figure out how they’d do a live show but that is definitely on their to do list. We had a great time getting to know Voidsinger and hearing their eclectic tunes. You can find them on all the usual platforms.

The OG cast reunite

We play a fantastic round of the quiz and of course your upcoming hot shows. 

It’s been great having our host with the most Reverend Rory back, in fact the whole original cast made it in this week. Always a treat.

ALSO, from the internet: Our friend and recent guest Dan Abbott of Bobby Joe Ebola & the Children MacNuggits has a kickstarter campaign in its last few days. Please consider donating and pre ordering their latest and most ambitious album yet. The musicianship is top notch and the comedy is hilarious. Link here: http://kck.st/45BqmyZ 

Have a great week everyone and thanks for making us a part of it. Life is short and we love you.

We are back with a brand new episode featuring dark wave goth vibers WITTIKKA.

This trio consists of Daniel on guitar Dave on drums and computer programs, and James on bass and vocals. Dave points out that James is the visionary front man providing lyrics as well. James insists it’s a group effort. 

James

David

Their sound feels like early goth mixed with overdriven guitars, kind of like Swans. James and Daniel are brothers and found Dave through the magic of Craigslist. They’re a great match.  

You can catch Wittikka with goth DJ Xenobia, Glitter Bats and L. A.’s AL1CE playing the Cellar Stage at Alturas July 20.

Kim says HI!

Kadillac Kim gives you the weekends hot shows and we welcome back for an exclusive 3-week engagement, ladies and gentlemen, Thee Reverend Rory Dowd! His band with Nick, One Ton Dually are playing TONIGHT with the Scoffs from Seattle and Riot Radio from Sac at the Cellar. We hope to see you there!

Funk & Houk

For one thing Will is creating 

 a local music show and KNVC wants your local music. Listen in for how to do that. 

We talk about DJs, history and bringing people together with music

Will Houk

Steve and Will give us a live performance each, and we get a track from our buddy Liam Kyle Cahill as well as a couple from the late local musical wiz Colin Ross.

It’s a great conversation with real live radio folk who consider it an art form. As do we.

Steve Funk

Grass roots local community radio is having a revival all across the country and we’re definitely here for it. So do yourself a favor, check it out, consider getting involved and remember, life is short and we love you. Thanks for listening.

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.
