Nick Ramirez and one of the Chris's from the Vampirates

Happiness and fear on 'Halloween'

Happy Halloween from the Worst Little Podcast!!!!

I hope you had a spook-tacular weekend. We had a great time at the Candyshoppe/Rocky Horror Pinky show, Zombie Crawl, Discovery museum and lots of other events around town. What a blast! If this town does any one holiday right, it’s Halloween! Especially when the weather is as warm as it was the past week! I’d say it’s probably been atlesast 7 or 8 years since Halloween night was that temparate. Slow year though – last year I ran out of candy by 8pm; this year, I was giving out handfuls of the junk and still had some left at 9pm!

The pumkin carving and CD release last thursday at Dogwater Studios was awesome. Even though the Worst Little Podcast studio was taken over by punkin’s and tables, the house was full of good cheer and horrific creativity. The Notorious RAD kept leaving the room when there was a “movie that’s immapropriate for little kids” came on the TV. The little trooper was a peach and stayed up late with us drunks.

DaKodiak and Dave Masud

I'm pretty sure both of these guys know a bit about liver scars.

 

On the show this week, wehave Reno’s own horror-rockers, the Vampirates, combining ghouls and zombies with punk rock and violence. Just towards each other, mind you. They’re “public service punk rock” and not here to harsh your good time. Chris and Dave sit down with us and talk about their most recent tour, drinking, and um, Halloween?? Yeah – LIVE! from the recent past. Just like always. Also in studio are Dogwater Studio’s very own Cody “Kodiak” and nevada trucker, Regis Mankey. Who, IMHO, is a moron. That’s right I said it. I’m callin you out, you redneck loser! I doubt you really even listen to this show.

Anyway, check your candy for cyanide (tastes like almonds) and razorblades (tastes like stabby).

And thanks for listening!

Big remote and the entire gang at worst little podcast

What the room sorta really looks like.

Why are these things so much more complicated than they should be?

My apologies for being a day late with this – I know, you’re crushed. First, everyone was late; then it took forever to get started; then there was a delay in post; then I asked Rick to chop up the picture he sent me. THEN I kind of spaced it. And finally, the website was a little slow this morning and I ended up using the really awesome photo by Rick anyway. Ugh! Anyways, welcome to another thrilling episode of The Worst Little Podcast in the World! Since it was such a crazy episode we skipped right over a bunch of things we did last week that were fun and I’m not going to tell you about here either. Suffice to say, we are older, wiser and stronger.

On the show we are treated to a number of LIVE SONGS by Reno favorite, Big Remote! Jon Cornell, Eric Foreman, Don Morrison and Steve Larkins sit in and are right at home talking out of their ass with us. We talk a littl about the trials and tribulations of recording an album as they are looking forward to releasing their first album, “Jenkins”. As a band, Big Remote is tight, melodic and layered; as an interview, Big Remote is somewhat more… chaotic. The quiz gets heated as they all deliver some big answeres for big points, but what else do you expect from a bunch of guys compensating so hard that they had to pt ‘BIG’ in their band name. And let’s not even get into the symbolic meaning and imagery of a remote, much less a big one. At least their wives and girlfriends are nice.

One last thing we forgot to mention on the show  – CAPTURED! BY ROBOTS!!!!! They will be appearing at Jub Jub’s on Thursday, 10/27 for J-BOT’S Birthday. But before you go to that, don’t forget to stop by Dogwater Studios for the Annual Punkin’ Carving Party and Great (Un)Discovered CD Release party!!!!!

Thanks for listening!

Tom L. from Occupy Reno on The Worst Little Podcast

Tom didn't really know what he was bargaining for when he agreed to come on the show...

You have questions. We  have questions. Answers…. meh.

Hello, loyal listeners; yow are ye? We have a pretty interesting show this week, with another Worst Little Podcast first, as is our wont. This week we tackle the realm of politics and have some face time with one of the members of the media committee from Occupy Reno, Tom L. While we attack him with vitriol and annoying questions ask a lot of dumb questions (someone has to), Tom does a pretty admirable job of fielding them and letting us know more about the aims of Occupy Reno. Hand signals, permits and dealing with carpetbagging shills are just some of the insights he brings from the Occupy Reno General Assembly and march.

Comedian Jenny PezDeSpencer on the Worst Little Podcast

Nick approves of this message.

But it’s not all boring politics, no! We have our fair share of toilet humor and biting wit – most of it supplied this week by Reno comedian and entertainment journalist, Jenny PezDeSpencer. And I’ll just say it now: Jenny is a dirty girl. That’s why we love her. Jenny just barely edges out Tom during the Worst Little Quiz, pretty much solely based on her feminine wiles. She does bring her jornalist’s hat to the show and doesn’t let Tom off the hook without trying to interview Occupy Reno. You can catch Jenny’s words in Reno Tahoe Tonight and onstage at Pioneer Underground Comedy Shows .

Chewie and Tom L. of Occupy Reno on the Worst Little Podcast.

"People actually listen to you guys?"

Chewie busts out some old skool tunes for your listening pleasure. Gunshot Likker and Lodestar punch your face in during the first half of the show, then GOB rips your head off in the end. Also, don’t forget to check out the Reno Zombie Crawl website – it’s going to be a great crawl this year!

Once again, ladies, gents and children of a legal drinking age – thanks for listening!

Cherrybear Records' Jessica at the Dogwater Studios

Special Edition: Cherrybear Records – Behind the Music

We feature a lot of local bands and that gets really old sometimes, so we thought we’d stretch out to the OTHER side of the music scene – production! Jess from Cherrybear Records takes her turn in the hotseat this week. She is promoting the release of the Great Undiscovered 2011 double-CD set and talks about some of the great bands she has helped turning great ideas into CDs, buttons and more. Mostly though, we just bullshit as usual.

We also welcome back Chewie! He’s finally back from laying brick  in Elko, NV and back home to take care of his expectant wife. We should have him until February this time as long as he doesn’t fuck up the show; it’s good to have him back! We didn’t really get into it, but he had a fantastic weekend what with UNR’s crushing defeat over UNLV at the annual battle for Nevada and the Raider’s triumph. Rory is also quite pleased with your 2011 Green Bay Packers. Great weekend for sports – too bad we don’t have a sports show.

cherrybear records

We talk about sex, drugs and rock’n’roll, the Reno Zombie Crawl, tattoos and lots of crazy hi-jinks of the Reno variety. Some days, the conversation flows like water – other times, you get this. Also included for your listening pleasure are some unreleased Courtesy Stitch songs. One of them is “the foulest and dirtiest thing I’ve ever recorded,” according to Dogwater Dick. It’s pretty fucking amazing…if you’re into train wrecks with a good beat.

Thanks for listening.

Scott Loring of The Gunner's Daughter
Some bands are just meant to rock. Others are rippers. The Gunner’s Daughter is one of those bands. We told them that they couldn’t have a full drum kit; they told us they were bringing one anyway. We told them to play live songs live; they cut a live album for us. Tyson Vlahovich, Jake Weatherill and Scott Loring don’t fuck around when it comes to rock and roll.
Tyson Vlahovich of The Gunner's Daughter
Great stuff happening in Reno, including the Zombie Crawl, a Greg Allen art opening and more. Listen to the show or just get your face out from behind a computer and do it! This town is only as great as we make it. Go wash your car, go to the museum, give a dollar to a hopeless cause. It’s all the little details that make Reno a liveable place. Keep it up!

And finally congratulations to Reverend Rory – he’s finished with his graduate coursework and now just needs to sit back and let the job offers roll in!

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.

Tom Gordon of Imirage Sound lab and Rick Spagnola of Dogwater Studios

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!!!

Tom Gordon on the Worst Little Podcast

Dogwater Studios gets a thumb's up from Tom!

Hey folks, having some technical difficulties with the Interwebz. Evidently our show is too cool for school, so we’re going to have to wait until after 3pm PST or so to get this up.

Keep listening!

Dane is ready to get his rock on

Dane "I got your bass right here" DeLucchi

Before we get started, we want to take a moment to offer our condolences to the many people affected by the tragedy at the Reno-Stead Air Races last week and their families. The Worst Little Podcast also wants to acknowledge the TREMENDOUS outpouring of help and support from the Reno community – lots of emergency personel and medical staff dropped everything they were doing to help out and the Red Cross was overwhelmed by people responding to requests for donors last Friday and throughout the weeknd. Sincerely – way to go, people of Reno! (And everywhere else nearby!)

To the show! Chewie is of course, off on some Carribean Island sipping beers on the beach while we slave away at Ye Olde Podcaste. So, we decided to have a REALLY good band in this week – the every entertaining and eclectec and exciting, MERKIN! A’lan Bur’ton, Dane DeLucchi (<—spelled right!) and Jeremy Morrow bring it with some teaser tracks from their upcoming, as yet unfinished, CD and smashing live performances. They even play for us their very newest song – and it’s a ripper!

A'lan Bur'ton

A'lan Bur'ton - Too cool for skool.

I’d like to take another moment out to acknowledge the struggle of one of the members of the band. A’lan Bur’ton, afflicted with being a ginger and former slave. Please whatever you do, don’t address him by his slave name, Alan. He is A’lan, premeire Reno artfag and we should accord him all due respect. Don’t call him Alan, he really doesn’t like it. His struggle is an inspiring and moving one, including his harrowing experience in the porn industry. That part of the Merkin interview didn’t get recorded, unfortunately, but it was a really cool segment, I swear.

Jeremy Morrow of Strega Bar

Jeremy gets people drunk for a living. You want to be his friend.

 

So yeah, I don’t really have much else except to say 1) you should listen to the show, 2) you should check the facebook page to WIN FREE TICKETS TO THE MERKIN SHOW AT THE KNIT ON THURSDAY 9/29, and 3) go hang out at Jeremy’s bar.

Oh, and 4) Thanks for Listening!

Worst Little Podcast – Episode 31

Matt Bode and his mermaid/squid tattoo

Matt loves his momma.

Nick randomly met these guys playing beer pong at the CalNeva. They’re fucking awesome. I think this is our longest episode EVAR.

Josh Martin of the Worst Little Podcast and Mike Martinez of Del Mar at the Dogwater Studios

Two big guys in black. Fuck off.

Hello everybodee! Hope you’ve been having a great couple of weeks and enjoying the end of the summer; we all sure have. Between Burning Man, the Rib CookOff, The Discovery Museum Opening, the Balloon Races, Reno Aces, art shows, rock shows and some pretty spectacular weather, Reno has HELLA been the place to be. Nick regales us with a bunch of “this one time, at Burning Man” crap some great stories from the playa. Rory can’t stay out of the spotlight so he tells SOMEBODY ELSE’S playa story that he’s already heard. Nick has more epic tales to tell, but we couldn’t fit them all in this week. He’s going to finish up with his journal in the next few episodes, but we had to move on to more immediate exciting things – like our gursts Del Mar.

Matt Bode, Nick Ramirez and a nipple at the Dogwater Studios

NIP SLIP!!!Two big guys in black. Fuck off.

Unlike most of the artists and performers on the show, we didn’t really know of these guys except by reputation before the show, so it is an episode of discovery! (Not like that! Unless Rick (or Rory) needs to fess up to something. ) Matt Bode and Mike Martinez of Del Mar stop by this week. If you don’t know, you really should check them out. Great surf/rockabilly/drunkpunk/cowpunk from some local kids, including a female singer, Nicole. The kicker is that the two dummies  we talked to somehow hooked up with the fantastic talent of Bud Gaugh (Sublime)! Unfortunately, Bud and Nicole couldn’t make it tonight, but we’re going to try to get them all in here in the spring.

This is a SUUUUPER long episode – it hits the 1:40 mark! I hope you’ve got some time to kill. Our little one hour show keeps growing and growing! Thanks to loyal listener Jude Mayne, we just hit 150 likes on Facebook! (although, that number could be higher, slackers… Tell your friends to like us! Even if they don’t! We’ll play the fake internet friend game!) Once again, it’s been a lot of fun. Thanks for listening.

Refverend Rory is a tool.

Reverend Rory goes last because he's the punchline.
