“You ever stare at people weirdly and listen to a song together?” is the best question of this episode and it wasn’t even asked by a host.
“The Randy Savages are a pop-punk wrestling collective who do not identify as a band, they prefer “Punk Rock Wrestling Accompaniment.”” They emulate and create odes dedicated to the life and times of legendary superstar of the 80s and 90s professional wrestling circuit, Randy Savage. Truly a pinnacle of art and sophistication that we had the privilege of bearing witness to – ok, really, the show is a shitshow, like any other, but a really exciting one! 90% more yelling!
The latest The Randy Savages album was recorded at Noise Eater Recordings and is available on Voted Best Records’ bandcamp page. Really, though: It’s everywhere. Just search it and it will magically appear. The latest release “All My Life” continues the saga of the struggle and life of their namesake
Originally, this show was booked to feature Jesse Williams and his solo album, “I Tried” (also recorded at Noise Eater and out from Voted Best Records), so… check that out too. But these The Randy Savages just took over everything. oh yeah! We did also get to spend some time with the brains and talent behind Noise Eater Recordings, Olav Tabatabai, who seems like a genuinely nice and talented fellow. No idea of why he’s working with these weirdos.
Well, that’s a lot of pictures and very few words – I feel good about that.
Thanks For Listening.
LAIDEEEEEEEZ! An gennlemen….. Proud to be presenting Strictly Business, featuring the maniacal talents of Captain Dano (Dan Davidson) and BIG JIM (Jamie Locks)! Strictly Business has been playing “Swamp Stomp Boogie” since 2014 here in the Washoe Valley and are a yip-hollerin’ hootenanny of a good time. The Good Mate, Nick Ramirez, steers them through the waters of this week’s episode, without the benefit of Reverend Rory (who was pulling super secret birthday superhero dad-duty that night). Reverend Rory (me, if that hasn’t dawned on you yet, O, Constant Reader) is damn sorry he missed out on this episode.
However, Strictly Business, as awesome as they are, are not the only guests this week, no! We also have Super Friend of the Show, and regular host of the Blazing Mics at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor, Britt Straw. Britt is here with us this week to talk about her work as a conservationsit and wolf advocate here in the Sierra Nevadas and Washoe Valley – and WOLFSTOCK 2015! August 16 at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor! A passionate woman behind an admirable cause, Britt Straw is dialed in when it comes to wildlife conservation and management.
And while we’re at it, we’re bringing back Hudson Flanigan of Source and SHAM and Stacey Tolle of Gunshot Likker and SHAM! They were in town for performances and appearances for the Nowhere Nevada movie premiere and soundtrack release last weekend. We love them so hard! It was great to have them around to celebrate this labor of love and all the good times at the end of a project a long time coming.
Love you. Thanks For Listening.
Dicks! Lots of Dicks!
The holidays are almost here and as the cold weather bursts upon us, so does the new sensation sweeping the Reno Nation – Boss’ Daughter! Chris Fox, Danny Paul and Jamie Locks comprise this new Reno punk band. With a depth of experience behind them, they kick some serious ass. Boss’ Daughter has been pretty active the last couple of months to the delight of scores of jaded show-goers.
I also just want to say: Chris likes dicks. Lots of dicks. Find out how he gets dozens of dicks late in the show! That being said: this show was a blast. We had a lot of fun talking
at to the band, about their evolution, the grammatical complexities of their name and drinking. They don’t have a CD quite yet, but are working on it. Beyond that though, Boss Daughter can be found on facebook and will be playing at the Alley this weekend and Jub Jub’s with the Ataris on Dec. 6th.
Coming up this week at Blazing Mics we have good friend of the show, Larry Cooper hosting. It’ should be a great time and we’d love to see you. Enjoy Reno ComiCon if you’re attending the perennial nerd event.
Thanks for listening!
