MacNuggits: Phoning It In For

Room a zoom Zoom! Kim, Nick and Dogwater Dick were all able to podcast from the comfort of their own phones or computers as did our guest Dan Abbott from the band Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits.

These songs are all different genres mixed, telling detailed epic stories and it’s funny. They remind me of Frank Zappa, Tenacious D and Ween. The way the band plays whatever they want, what the song and story call for, whatever style. Folk, punk, metal, brass section, progressive and harmonies. Performed with precision and highly entertaining. 

Zooming it like it’s 2020

You can find them at bobbyjoeebola.com and all the platforms. They have a bunch of fantastic videos on YouTube as well. Go check them out.

Dan aces the quiz and

Nick and Kim review the Cover Up show and give you some hot show tips for another jam-packed musical weekend in the biggest little city.

Dick and Dan talk Star Trek and Shatner’s earlier work. 

 Why not? After all,

we’re the worst little podcast, we’re talking out of our ass! 

Thanks for listening.

After illness and snowstorms, we are back!

Kicking off our annual Women’s March salute to local ladies who make music, we have a blast from the past, singer songwriter Robin Robinson!

Robin and Nick were friends back in the 90’s, attending open mics and local shows at old school Reno venues like the Blue Lamp and the Zephyr.

Rick meets Robin

They reunited at last year’s Marianarchy music festival where Robin played a beautiful set with a dancer performing with her on a few songs throughout. It was enchanting and special.

Not being able to catch up at the event, Nick was stoked Robin could come in and talk for a spell. 

Robin Robinson folkin’ around!

We play a fun round of the worst little quiz including close encounters with rock legends. Robin also gets the lowdown on the Nowhere Nevada movie.

It was a sweet, chill, and fun hang with a new old friend. Thanks for sharing your songs with us Mrs. Robinson! And thanks worst little listeners (especially our Patreon members! Patreon.com/worstlittlepodcast) for joining us. Life is short, and we love you.

Here we see our spirit animals comingling in the wild. SWOON!

For Valentines we get bromantic. Three rad dudes from established Reno bands like Ostracized, Grimedog and Filipendejo among others, Lucas Grimes guitar and vocals, Tyrell Cruz bass and vocals and Kevin Montoya drums and vocals are the new super group and power trio BANG MARRY KILL.

Kevin aka Felipendejo

Funky and reminiscent of funny jam acts like Ween, Primus and the more obscure Gluey Brothers. 

They’re a rocking dance band really. Super joyful and lighthearted with heavy grooves and cool psychedelic surf tones with a squeeze of desert rock. And Dessert Rock if you’re hungry.

Tyrell

We had a blast with our friends in Bang Marry Kill and get to know Tyrell a little better with a round of the worst little quiz. 

Lucas

You can get down with them at the upcoming blood-spattered valentine show at Alturas’ Cellar stage. Keep collaborating and creating new music Reno! We are definitely loving the results! 

Happy VD! Life is short and we love you. Thanks for listening. Thank you so hard!

This week on WLP we welcome Nevada City’s No Healer with Justin on drums, Barry guitar and vocals, and Blake on bass. They are a genuine, sonic garage, kickass rock and roll outfit. With influences like the Stooges, Dead Moon and the Sonics this power trio knows how to keep it raunchy, hooky, fast paced and wild.

Barry

They’re also funny, with a great chemistry, musically and as bandmates.  This became apparent after a juicy worst little quiz.

No Healer is only a couple years old and we hope they stick around to rock the region and beyond for a long time. 

Blake

They have some music on the usual streaming platforms and their next show is at RMU in Truckee California with The Pedaling Mongos. Guaranteed to be a barn burner. You can keep up with them @Nohealerheals on Instagram and Bandcamp.

Thanks for making the journey guys, we had a blast getting to know you. 

Justin

Keeping it rock and roll there’s a hot show this weekend at the Cellar at Alturas on Saturday night February 3 with Pussy Velour, Eddie and the Subtitles and Glitter Bats. 

Rock and Roll will never die!

Rick says to go see Eddie and the Subtitles this weekend!

Get some. Thanks for listening!

Howdy Reno neighbors and neighborenos! We are back with a fresh new band to meet and explore.

It’s 2024 and the young folks are still punk rocking for the betterment of mankind and for the sheer fun, absurdity and love of it all. These antiwar, pro equality anarcho-punx, Death Means Profit are comprised of Lilith vox, Gwen guitar, Silly bass, and Colin drums. They all hail from different regions of northern Nevada and 3/4 are graduating high school this year.

Lilith

They bring the youthful exuberance and primal kick in the pants the music scene always needs. It’s got a skate punk vibe with the spirit of both English punk, like Subhumans and SoCal hardcore like the Germs. It’s a chaotic underground sound, short songs with a ton of progressive angst. Total freedom to do whatever they want, all making for a wild spontaneous and unpredictable live performance.

Colin
Gwen

Their next appearance will be at the Reno Punk Rock Flea Markets next event.  Punk Rock Prom? More on that later from our very own Kadillac Kim, who met Death Means Profit at Neutral Ground at the Holland Project and we just want to thank her for booking the band this week. Kim rules!

Silly

Thank you worst little listeners. 

Life is short and we love you.

Fully loaded episode, please. All three toppings, please.

That’s right: THREE guests this week, each with their own solo album. And by “solo album” we mean it – each of these musical monsters have largely played all the parts on their albums, in addition to writing the whole durn thing.

Tom/Thamvz

First up, we welcome back Tom Odenheimer of Ugly Orphans who lets his hair down with his alter ego, Thamvz, in a little cozy black metal project, Sinn Demonisk. The album, “Humanity’s Cycle” is just a little grindy something to soothe the blackest corners of the hole that was left when you lost your soul. Self-produced, recorded and mixed entirely on an iPhone, this is about as lo-fi as you can get. Play it loud; wake the neighbors. Available on all the usual digital places.

We would be remiss if we did not recognize the achievements of our brother and co-host, Nick Ramirez (Roxxy Collie, One Ton Dually, and more). (again). As you may recall from Season 10 Episode 37, Nick recorded and released his album “This Might Be The End” during the pandemic. A combination retrospective and showcase, Ramirez put together some of his most successful and meaningful-to-him songs all in one place for you to find. Physical copies are still in very limited supply, but well worth it.

Dave Masu, smiling broadly
Dave Masud

The last album we talk about is the most recent – literally about a week old at the time of this writing. Good buddy, Dave Masud (Vampirates, Suckapunch, and more) has created and released an EP called “False Island”, a 5-song journey inside the mind of a Reno punk rock staple. I’ve been listening to it almost every day this week and I am a little smitten with it. Masud has put together a strong entry, complete with deep lyrics, ripper hooks, and quirky fun. If you’d like a copy of this on CD, you can show up to the hottest ticket this weekend, the almost-sold-out CD release show at The Cypress, where Masud has put together an amazing band of some of Reno’s best talents to back him in this presentation; also featured at the show are Heterophobia and Roxxy Collie.

THis was a really great episode – hopefully the start of a new series. If you’ve put out a solo album, get a hold of us, let’s talk process with you!

Thanks for listening.

Welcom back, music fans! This week we have the beautiful rock music of Roxxy Collie.
A female fronted quintet, Roxxy Collie has a full rich sound , deep lyrics and humor. They’ve been called ‘art rock’ and ‘chillcore’, they’re very unique for sure.


The lineup is Margy Ford, the songbird, Jon Cornell on keyboard, Stephen on electric guitar, Nick Ramirezon beats, and their newest member, Larry Cooper, on bass and background vocals.
We discuss Dogwater Dick’s weekend, dead birds, song lyrics and the Reno Punk Rock Flea Market among other things.

We get a bunch of new material from the band and a sweet Duran Duran cover at the end.
Sending our love and positive energy to our good friends and fellow musicians, Tom Plunkett and Andy Hernandez, both in the ICU at the time of this writing. Hang in there rockers. We love you.

Thanks for listening!

Continuing in our series of bands who have kept it going through the long winter, we welcome back One Ton Dually! Yes, this is kinda the ‘house band’ (in that Nick and Rory are in it), but we haven’t had them on in four and a half years, so we thought we’d check in and see if they’ve gotten any better.

One Ton Dually – up close and personal

One Ton Dually is Thee Reverend Rory Dowd (bass, vocals), Nick Ramirez (drums, vocals), Spike Richie (guitar, vocals), and Jack Soft (guitar). They’ve switched the lineup and added some more songs – we get treated to a whole lineup of new songs this episode. As Dogwater Dick quips, they’ve embraced the sloppy punk rock band inside.

They are hungry for Reno rock and roll shows and despite some reschedulings due to the ongoing pandemic (committed to being safe these fellows are), they are excited to invite you to their first show in 2022 at The Matador with Thee Living Daylights and Triflin’ Bitches. It should be a train wreck of a good time.

We are back with yet another Christmas special! All the families joined together for yet another year, gathered around microphones (and a Zoom feed) to share stories, music, and Christmas wishes. It’s been a hot minute since we’ve gotten together and celebrated Christmas this way, and it sure was fun. (Now with more swearing!)

Everyone’s large and ever-growing families were present as usual, and this time, we had a few new additions: The Ramirez’s had their wonderful baby Pauline with them, who squealed throughout the show. the Dowds were stuck at home with the sniffles, but they were able to have 3-year-old tornado Bobby and newborn Billy show up, on camera! The children sure did start popping up through the pandemic! I wonder what happened….

Despite forgetting to do half of them, we brought our traditions back to life this year; Christmas carols from local musicians, family chaos, and a classic tale of Christmas spirit. Short on content, bug on love. Remember, it’s also the last show of 2021, and season 11 of the podcast!

We have come a long way together and are looking forward to both the coming year and Season 12!!! Have a great holiday season, and we’ll see you next year!
