Welcome back, welcome home, welcome to the show. We have a good one lined up for you this week: straight from South Lake Tahoe and the Reno areas, a face-meltingly good time with the ever-cuddly, Bionic Gorilla. These guys were a lot of fun to have in the studio – personable, professional and perverted. Off mic, we had heady debates about politics and philosophy – during the show as always, it degenerated in to fag and fart jokes. I really wish you could have been there…

…seriously though, they are a lot of fun and a bunch of good guys. I was especially impressed with DJ Zee, doing some live sampling and sound efx as an added instrument. That is a rare thing, totally killer, as in killer app,  and Bionic Gorilla should treasure him. You should treasure him by going and seeing them next weekend at the SassaBRATION festival down in Carson City next weekend on August 16.

We also take a call ta the top of the show with Jim Thomas of The Mermen. If you don’t know, they are fucking GODS OF ROCK. The Mermen are a West Coast surf rock band that has enjoyed popularity in the underground/indie/punk/non-mainstream ‘scene’s for 20+ years. They have played Reno many times, but not recently. Jim Thomas takes a moment to talk to us about some of his current projects and coming back out to the Biggest Little City again for their show at Jub Jub’s on August 14th, brought to you by Nowhere Music.

Excited Kris

While they’ve only been around for a few months, The Enucleators have consistently impressed audiences every time they play. They have a tight chemistry and were a very insightful bunch of guys to chat with. They are looking to get in some studio time and put down the catalog of music they already have down.

Reverend Rory and Nick are also positively ELATED to announce that they have been cast in “Tooth of Crime: Second Dance“, a theatrical musical experience by Sam Shepard. Described as “Reno’s Environmental Rock Experience of the Year” and “the most dangerous play you’ll See this year”, “Tooth of Crime” is brought to you by Jub Jub World Productions, directed by Dave Richards and will be staged in the showroom. Other cast members include Lew Zaumeyer, Jill Marlene, Andy Luna, Scott Dundas and John Lutz; Live music from Chris Fox, Dave Masud and Jeff Done ; the crew also features other Reno theater heavyweights. 10 shows, 100 seats, so viewing is limited. Check out the Facebook site for details.

So to sum up – Happy Happy; go see The Enucleators; check out “Tooth of Crime”; shake Reno up. Oh! and come to Studio on 4th tonight for the Happy Birthday David Bowie event for a lot of great covers, including The Rev’s version of “Modern Love”.

Thanks for Listening.
