Pierre Marche - It's Too Hot in Here - S11 E20
/

Hello everyone. It is June and we are already in the middle of some nightmarish heatwave! But that isn’t important; what’s important is this week’s wonderful guest: Pierre Marche, here with us with his third EP and his muse/sort-of producer, Loren! Pierre’s music is currently streaming on all platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, BandCamp, etc.), so if you like what you hear, be sure to check him out on there! .

Pierre Marche

Throughout the wonderfully terrible pandemic, unlike a lot of people who just sat around complaining about lockdown, Pierre and Loren traveled a bunch, and even went to Mexico; Pierre was also very musically active during COVID, and he worked on a lot of great things (some of which you’ll get to hear about if you listen to the episode).

Loren the Muse

Anything else you wanna know, you’re just gonna have to listen to the show. Not that you don’t already plan on it, this stuff isn’t even that interesting to read anyways, but in case you were indecisive, listen to the show, hear some great music and the normal…chaos of everyone! – RaggMopp

Thanks for listening

The Randy Savages - Cream of the Crop - S11 E14

“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 “All My Life”

“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.

Welcome back to the Worst Little Podcast! This week’s show is a special one. It’s our 300th episode! The whole crew is here and joining us is excellent Grass Valley punk duo, Slutzville. This week’s episode will leave you saying things like “this makes me want to get out there and dance but I’d throw out my back!” and wondering “what’s an Alaskan pipeline?”, and also, “how did these beans get in my bed?” Before we get to the music, here’s a special message from Rory on behalf of all of us at the podcast:

Seven years and three months ago, we had no idea what we were doing. We really weren’t sure how to make a podcast; we weren’t sure how to build an audience, and we certainly had no idea of the great undertaking we had just begun. In the last 300 episodes, I have been lucky enough to witness firsthand the growth and development of hundreds of local musicians, my own friends and the local cultural evolution that we have been a part of for the past near-decade. I have been, and continually am, humbled by the response support and encouragement we have received from our listeners, the musicians, and bands on our show. We are still delighted and tickled that we can be a part of your life every week. Thank you for inviting us into your ears and your brain. You are in our hearts. I would also like to thank my fellow cohosts and creators Nick Ramirez, Rick Spagnola, Josh “Chewbacca” Martin, and Kadillac Kim. I would like to thank them for their continued hard work dedication and passion for this thing we’ve created together. I could not have done this alone and I can think of no better crew to get it done with. You guys are my family. And to all of our interns past present and future keep up the good work. Life is short; I love you. -Thee Reverend Rory Dowd

NOW let’s hear some music! Press play.

Slutzville is Jessi Permenter: Lead Vocals
Natalie Thompson: Drums/ Back up vocals

Slutzville describes themselves as two loud and vulgar adults always down to tear it up. This two-piece queer punk band from Grass Valley gets around – they’re regulars of the Reno punk scene. Their next show in Reno is July 31st with Naked Aggression / Opposition Rising/ Dissidence at Shea’s. Click the link for more info. Check out their Bandcamp for more! Thanks so much to Slutzville for being on the show. We had a great time and we can’t wait to hear more from you!
