So – partying on the Fourth kicked my ass. There’s lots of awesome things I want to say about the Schizopolitans, like that they’re badass. And that Xtevion, Andy Jorgensen, and Hector Urtubia are rocket scientists of music with their Hard Ambient Goth Atonal Jazz Industrial Techno Avant-garde Freestyle Dance Noise ethic. Or that they are an intense experience with sweat and cursing and a room packed full of electronics and wires and keyboards and computers. Or that they are an unique experience in Reno music. I could also say that you should check out The Schizopolitans on their bandcamp page for tons of free music. Or that you can catch them while you “Get Wood!” at the Strega 5-year Anniversary Party on July 12th.
I could also call The Schizopolitans self-indulgent twats, but I wouldn’t do that.
I’m not going to say any of that, because I’m exhausted – enjoy your weekend.
Thanks for listening.
Before we get started, we want to take a moment to offer our condolences to the many people affected by the tragedy at the Reno-Stead Air Races last week and their families. The Worst Little Podcast also wants to acknowledge the TREMENDOUS outpouring of help and support from the Reno community – lots of emergency personel and medical staff dropped everything they were doing to help out and the Red Cross was overwhelmed by people responding to requests for donors last Friday and throughout the weeknd. Sincerely – way to go, people of Reno! (And everywhere else nearby!)
To the show! Chewie is of course, off on some Carribean Island sipping beers on the beach while we slave away at Ye Olde Podcaste. So, we decided to have a REALLY good band in this week – the every entertaining and eclectec and exciting, MERKIN! A’lan Bur’ton, Dane DeLucchi (<—spelled right!) and Jeremy Morrow bring it with some teaser tracks from their upcoming, as yet unfinished, CD and smashing live performances. They even play for us their very newest song – and it’s a ripper!
I’d like to take another moment out to acknowledge the struggle of one of the members of the band. A’lan Bur’ton, afflicted with being a ginger and former slave. Please whatever you do, don’t address him by his slave name, Alan. He is A’lan, premeire Reno artfag and we should accord him all due respect. Don’t call him Alan, he really doesn’t like it. His struggle is an inspiring and moving one, including his harrowing experience in the porn industry. That part of the Merkin interview didn’t get recorded, unfortunately, but it was a really cool segment, I swear.
So yeah, I don’t really have much else except to say 1) you should listen to the show, 2) you should check the facebook page to WIN FREE TICKETS TO THE MERKIN SHOW AT THE KNIT ON THURSDAY 9/29, and 3) go hang out at Jeremy’s bar.
Oh, and 4) Thanks for Listening!
