In our third installment of Woman’s March we get heavy with the Reno metal scene’s newest super heroes: JustUs. Female fronted by the powerful vocal stylings of Stevie Bxo, this thrash metal quartet are tight and ready to tour in June. From the hiatus of such bands as Infecto Skeletons, Saber Tooth Dragon, and The Damn Ole Band, guitarist Myke Read and drummer Andrew Hockenberry, found themselves facing an ultimatum, become a metal band or lose their singer in their outlaw country band. Sooooo…They conjured tasty licks and grooves, switched it up and the rest is history.
They had been performing as a three piece but recently added bass player Insun Blemel, who really beefs the whole thing up. Of course just as their name suggests they are out for justice. They want the music to address the injustices they see on the daily. Stevie’s words sung with strong passion and conviction, waver from a softer cry to the roar of an angry monster. It was really cool to see up close. We get their origin story, a bunch of songs, and newbies Stevie and Insun play the quiz head to head. Meanwhile, since they’ve played so many times, Myke panels with us and Andrew sits it out. We had a blast and if you’re down with the metal you’ll have a blast with JustUs! Thanks for listening and JustUs for all!
Hello! It’s the Worst Little Podcast. This week we welcomed Liam Kyle Cahill to the studio and he brought a friend! We talked about Liam’s love life and the resulting songs. We get to know his roommate Kris who is to podcasting what a duck is to water. Kris is just as impressed and surprised by Liam’s performance as we are even though he lives with Liam. Liam’s new album, many years in the making, is coming out in November and Liam sets a goal of one release (sexually) each year for the next five. The quiz was a horse race, both had excellent skill answering even the darkest (and grossest) of questions. Liam is an open book. Chris pleads the fifth and We find out who is a brick wall. Press play!
Big thanks to Liam and Kris for being this week’s guests! Next week we have Wheatstone Bridge and a special Marianarcy preview. Thanks for listening!
