Manchild - Child's Play! - S11 E38
/

This week Nick, Ian, Dogwater Dick, and intern Mouse too (she keeps showing up!) are on the rock and roll bus. After discussing dental issues, they welcome hardcore Reno super group, and band on fire, Manchild!
Nesto, Kylo, Rosolberry and Dandlebar came in hot and tight, treating us to 5 originals and a special treat at the end.

Nesto


These vets of the Reno scene have collectively played in dozens of bands before bringing together this rocking hardcore punk band that soars.  Listen for their rock and roll resumes.

Chemistry on and off the field is important in a band, and these guys have it. No drama, just pure rocking angst, and passion. These dudes aren’t fresh faced twenty somethings, but you wouldn’t know it by the high energy and furious speed of the music. Manchild sweats it out.
Dandlebar, the unofficial leader lays out the recipe for being in a good working band. He’s in three and gives a hundred percent in every one. The whole band does.

They’re a humorous bunch to say the least. Kylo takes on Roselberry in very close quiz.  Dandlebar and Nesto panel with us,  as they have taken the quiz several times.

Manchild is our final act of 2021 (next week is our Xmas show and company party!), we want to thank all our guests this season. Also, our Patreon members! (You keep the lights on!) All of our listeners! (Shout out to longtime listener Zoey, Kylo’s girlfriend, we love you!) Happy Birthday Reverend Rory!


And Happy Birthday Marianarchy! We love you!
Sinceriously(I’m making it a word!) thanks for listening!

Eric Stangeland - Love What You Do - S11 E5
/

I love this episode. But this is some heavy shit – trigger warning for anyone who doesn’t like medical distress.

Joining us is Eric Stangeland of One Stop Guitar as well as many Reno musical adventures and bands over the years. He shares with us a few tracks from his upcoming album, “Wake Up”. It is an autobiographical, collaborative project that we talk about in some detail in the show – both the project and the events leading up to Eric’s decision to create an album in 2020.

Eric brings along with him two of his collaborators (and no strangers to the show) Mark Earnest and Anthony “Uncle Tony” Collier-Ashworth of ToneMark Soundshttps://www.facebook.com/tonemarksounds. They both contribute on the album as well as being creative forces behind the recording and release. They also launched this label in 2020. What is up with everyone being all creative when constrained to be less social? Crazy how that is working out.

This episode is a little music light – we don’t want to spoil all of the album. However, it is content heavy. Eric share with us a LOT; so if you don’t like a harrowing tale of tragedy and climbing back from the remains of your old life to come back better, stronger, faster… keep on searching. On the other hand, a sincere ‘thank you’ to Eric for sharing a deeply personal chapter.
