We have a fun and exciting show this week. If you’ve ever needed to order stickers, you may have heard of our guest: all the way from Reno, NV and points beyond – The Sticker Guy! himself, Mr. Peter Menchetti. Coming up in the punk scene of Reno in the 80s and 90s with a strong DIY ethic, Menchetti has been promoting and producing music in some form or another for almost four decades. He brings a stack of vinyl and a portable turntable to play us some rock and roll goodness. Joining Menchetti in-studio are his partner Eunice and Pussy Velour’s Wolfgang and Quinn!
This year marks the 30th anniversary of his launch of Sticker Guy! and to celebrate, Menchetti has pooled together his contacts from his record label (Slovenly Recordings – celebrating 21 years) and festival production company (We’re Loud Fest) to put on the fifth installment of Debauch-a-Reno! This time, the punks are taking over Wingfield park for the weekend, starting on Friday 6/16 at 5pm with (friend-of-the-show) DJ Staxofwax! The all-ages festival will be held between Wingfield Park during the day and evening with afterparties at The Cypress. The lineup is intense, featuring 20+ acts The Mummies, The Kids, The Zeroes, Deadbolt, along with locals Eddie and the Subtitles, The Juvinals, Pussy Velour, a DJ set from Jello Biafra and more! There will be merch, sponsor booths, and food available at the park as well. The FAQ page has all the details and links – limited tickets are still available!
Reverend Rory is in to host this week and we also get a visit from everyone’s favorite junior intern, RaggMopp. Plus, we introduce our NEWEST intern: LEE! We see big things for Lee in the futurely, Lee. Lee leelee lee. Talked about some other events, but the show is out late this week, so we hope you had fun, whatever you did.
Thanks for Listening.
Happy New Year, friends and listeners! Welcome back!
We are so happy to have one of the hardest working bands out there kicking off Season 13! The honed and road tested Boss’ Daughter! Bossy D is Jamie Locks (drums), Danny Paul (bass), and Chris Fox (lead singer and guitar).
8 years deep in their prolific and seemingly endless adventures in punk rock, they’re recently signed onto a new label, SBAM RECORDS, released a new 7″ “Okay/Photography,” and have a busy tour schedule planned for 2023. They’re on fire and ready to party all over the US, starting with a ten day west coast stint that kicked off a few days after recording this show!
We’ve had the pleasure of checking in on this punk power trio since their inception. As well as with their various other projects, especially Chris (who’s been in like 69 bands I believe). They’re still fast, furious, deep, and hilarious.
They are having a record release show at 40 Mile Saloon February 18th for the new album “Bouts With Bummers” which drops February 10th. We hear a bunch of songs from said record and a song called Bouts With Bummers that’s not on the album of the same name. You’ll just have to listen for why that is.
It was a high energy kick in the pants this week, that’s for sure.
Join us for our live 500th Episode celebration at Cypress music hall on Saturday January 28th 7pm with DJ StaxOfWax , Heterophobia and Elephant Rifle! See the event page on Facebook.
Life is short and we love you. It’s good to be back!
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 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.
Thanks For Listening!
Welcome back to us! And a Fine New Year to you!
It’s the first show of a brand new season. We are stoked to bring back one of the bands from the Beforetimes that is still kicking ass today – Cell! Of course, it wouldn’t be a fresh start without a thousand things going wrong – most of it was pre-show and we talk about it a little at the top of the show, but dang!
There have been some lineup changes and some sound changes, but Cell is still a tremendously talented and exciting band. They give us just a little taste of music this week -with only two songs in the regular show and one more on the Patreon special. Just a taste of the new tunes they have been crafting in the shadows.
You can catch them this coming weekend on Saturday Jan 29 at The Matador (frmr St James Infirmary) and hear more of their new tunes, along with Grimedog and Saving Robin Steele.
Thanks for Listening!
This week Nick, Ian, Dogwater Dick, and intern Mouse too (she keeps showing up!) are on the rock and roll bus. After discussing dental issues, they welcome hardcore Reno super group, and band on fire, Manchild!
Nesto, Kylo, Rosolberry and Dandlebar came in hot and tight, treating us to 5 originals and a special treat at the end.
These vets of the Reno scene have collectively played in dozens of bands before bringing together this rocking hardcore punk band that soars. Listen for their rock and roll resumes.
Chemistry on and off the field is important in a band, and these guys have it. No drama, just pure rocking angst, and passion. These dudes aren’t fresh faced twenty somethings, but you wouldn’t know it by the high energy and furious speed of the music. Manchild sweats it out.
Dandlebar, the unofficial leader lays out the recipe for being in a good working band. He’s in three and gives a hundred percent in every one. The whole band does.
They’re a humorous bunch to say the least. Kylo takes on Roselberry in very close quiz. Dandlebar and Nesto panel with us, as they have taken the quiz several times.
Manchild is our final act of 2021 (next week is our Xmas show and company party!), we want to thank all our guests this season. Also, our Patreon members! (You keep the lights on!) All of our listeners! (Shout out to longtime listener Zoey, Kylo’s girlfriend, we love you!) Happy Birthday Reverend Rory!
And Happy Birthday Marianarchy! We love you!
Sinceriously(I’m making it a word!) thanks for listening!
Like a heat attack of the ear, we are here to assault you with the cacophonous chaos of Action Bastard! Like a fine dose of toilet vodka, they will leave your palate burning for more. It’s an exciting show – a full house of host and guests – we even had to put the butt trumpeteer in studio B, if you know what I mean.
Action Bastard! were the best band in the world, one upon a time, and pair well with over-aged cheese. As they say in the language of their people, “It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, only how you boil the squirrel.”
Thanks For listening!
This week on WLP we (Rick and Nick) had the pleasure to hang loose with power trio Cryptilians . Not THE Cryptilians! If you hear someone get it wrong and say THE, take a drink!
Is grunge still a genre? Mudhoney still embraces the label, so if it’s good enough for them , I’ll embrace it. It’s definitely a big influence on this band. Cobain-esque you might say. There’s a pop punk vibe too. Indie, DIY aesthetics. Yada-yada-yada. Whatever genre blend they are, their songs are catchy, interesting, and they rock!
Lanny is the guitarist and front man . Pat on bass and Joey on drums. We find out how Joey, newest and hairiest member, had to beat a robot on drums upon auditioning for the group. Needless to say, all other applicants were sent home. Joeys hard rock, metal style of drumming was just what the guys needed . Now having ditched Hal3000, the Cryptilians (drink up!) are ready to play a bunch of shows they have scheduled through the rest of the year. They also plan some touring in the summer. You can find them on all the platforms. They’ve been working with Dogwater Dick on a new album and are pumped for the future!
We talk a bit about the last Murderock show (Nick and Rick attended). Farewell to Reno’s premier horror rock outfit. Sick bastards. Oh yeah! We meet our new intern Mouse! So far so good! Welcome aboard! The quiz was a lot of fun. These fellas are good at the funny. Thanks dudes!
Lastly, we want to send our love and condolences to the friends and family of local artist and beloved barfly Melisa Horton. Safe home Mae Mae. We love you.
Good friends and neighbors of the studio, Lost Idea, check in this week with the team over the internet. These Reno-bred skate punks have just dropped a new album (they still say that, right?) and threw a virtual release show with Momo Promo at the Elbow Room. If you missed it, you can catch some of those songs here, in the episode! (cause that’s how podcasts work)
Emergency Marianarchy: Keep Jub’s Alive is next weekend – 6pm on Friday, 10/23/20 and a whole DIFFERENT second day at 6pm on Saturday, 10/24/20. There will be a concurrent silent auction, starting early on Friday and running all the way until noon on 11/1/20 – a whole week to try to keep an eye on your prize. Details for the silent auction will be on the event page. And, of course, you can donate directly at the GoFundMe KJA page.
Thanks for Listening!
Do ya like punk rock, kid? I can get you some punk rock right here.
Ummm Jr, Reno noise aficionados and scream mechanics, are the next victim to be drawn into the WLP lair. They stasrt out with a bang and just keep going. There are no slow songs, no chance to breath. Just crazy mad, crazy fast and crazy fun.
Ummm Jr is Taylor, Andrew, Derek and DAVID (yes, it is David. I listened to the show and checked). They have been quick to insinuate themselves as one of the bands you want to play with. The music, while loud, screamy and raw, is terribly dancy and rather catchy. It’s not hard to see why everyone wants them on their bill.
Thanks for listening!
