Greetings dear listeners! What do Eric Stangeland, Thee Saturday Knights, Heterophobia, ASCA, Vague Choir, Rhiannon Box, and Kanawha all have in common? They’re all badass bands and musicians from Reno, they’re all on ToneMark Sounds record label, and they’re all our musical guests this week, courtesy of Mark Earnest and Tony Ashworth, owners of the aforementioned ToneMark Sounds. Mark, renown music journalist and prolific musician, currently fronts for the bands Manchild and Kanawha, the doom/desert rock band that also features Tony on electric guitar. Tony is a chef, an author, podcaster (rad horror stories! The Den Tapes), video and film, audio engineering and more. True Reno Renaissance men.
We love these pillars of the Reno music scene. Always creating, promoting, encouraging and nurturing.
Join us as we sort through their many talents, the birth of ToneMark and the natural progression of things as a new but already stacked label. The bands all have their own unique styles and sounds, carefully curated from Mark and Tony’s favorite local acts. With all the talent we hear and the acts that are on the roster, we were blown away with how very cool this all is. For Mark and Tony, yes, but for the bands too. All very impressive label mates who should be proud of their recordings.
They’re having a showcase at Cypress on December 8th with heavy hitters Hired Fun, Heterophobia, Thee Saturday Knights and Kanawha.
We had a blast this week and really loved all the different tracks we heard. We hope you do too.
Thanks for listening!

This week we’re talking clown Elvis’s, hamburger hands, and sweet, sweet practice holes! Press play for this podcast EXCLUSIVE from Blunderbusst!
There were no interns this week so Kim had to do all the heavy lifting. And by heavy lifting I mean beers and conversation! Kim’s adventures this week consisted of clowning around with a clown Elvis impersonator and turning 35! Here’s proof that Clownvis exists! Come back, Clownvis!
Blunderbusst is Jen Scaffidi, Carolyn Gates, and Carson Cessna. We’re waiting with baited breath for upcoming show dates. Worst Little Podcast Listeners will be some of the first in the know. We hear there might be some stuff happening at Foxy Olive and St. James Infirmary soon! We loved having these three on the show again. Let’s hope it’s not another six years for the next time.
