Yeah, Yeah, I know….
Season Three is winding to a close. Things will be ALL NEW in Season Four. Like getting the podcast out on time (still looking for the right
sucker applicant to fill the position of Production Intern – contact Reverend Rory to make that happen).
But still, this is a fun show. This here is VOTED BEST BAND!!! They are an underrated rock talent in the Reno are, hailing from the rural community of Black Rock, NV. Inspired by the music of their now far off youth, they continue to play the anthems and dancing music that first sent them down the life of punk rock losers.
These Voted Best Band guys are seriously wasting their talent in this project, with pedigrees that include some of the mightiest Reno bands including The Vampirates, The Riptide Bandits, Suckapunch, Twelve Gauge Facelift and more. This kind of star power doesn’t just happen overnight. It takes years of meticulous study and rehearsal to write the kind of songs they do. Which is to say none.
This episode was a lot of fun and the boys came to play ball with the quiz. I forget everything that was said, but it was really funny. Bear with us, it felt like a slow start before it grew to our normal cacophony. But maybe that’s a good thing.
We had them on with a CD before, but this time we got them live – The Vampirates!!! Dave, Chris, Chris and Pat set up in the studio and blasted us with 10 or 12 songs in our 90 minutes together. They are leaving on their ten year anniversary tour this week and – you can’t even tell how excited they are. I mean, The Vampirates are easily the most laid back band we have ever had in the studio – nothing phases them! Then they kick you in the face with killer, homegrown Reno punk rock.
We also want to send our personal condolences to our friend, Cam Hog, and her family after the tragic loss of her brother, Ashton Pike, in a motorcycle accident last week. If you haven’t been following the story, Pike was a local bartender and single father of a 2-year old daughter. His death was obviously sudden and is leaving a large hole in their lives, especially his daughter. This Friday night, 3/1/2012, Rise Nightclub will be raising money from their cover charge and accepting donations for him and his family. All proceeds of the show (and last weekend’s benefit at 40 Mile Saloon) will go to pay for memorial costs; any remaining funds will go to a trust fund support his young daughter. Please get out and show some Reno love and help take care of our own!
ALSO! We have an exciting offer for avid and regular local listeners. Our fine sponsors, Reno Computer Fix, are offering a special discount for WLP listeners. They have an awesome little laptop for sale with a solid state hard drive (which are suh-WEET, btw!). This laptop is priced at $320 for regular customers, but with the WLP keyword, you the listener can go in and get it for under $275!!! (The deal may actually be better than that, but there was poor communication – so go in and bug them to bring it down.) The way YOU can get the keyword is by – listening to the entire show. It’s there in the last break, so keep listening and then get into Reno Computer Fix ASAP!!! There is only one of these deals per week, so it’s first-come first serve!!!
Back to the Vampirates!!! You can check out their tour dates here – they are meandering across the country on a whirlwind 2 month tour. They should be back in time to play at Marianarchy 2013, which will be killer since they haven’t played that in a few years. They’ll be calling us from the road every few weeks to let us know how the tour is going. They’re also taking some of our stickers to decorate bathrooms in shitty clubs and basements all over the country! Yay!!!!
Lots of good shows happening this weekend. Listen until the end for our picks, the get out and see us!!! Or find your own awesome thing to do – Reno music and art is always happening, yo. Go git ya some!
Thanks for listening!
No show = Our Show!
Due to a communication crisis, or guests were not able to make it to the studio this week. Not sure if they even knew to be here. If you’re a regular show go-er in Reno, listen close and see if you can pick up what we’re puttin’ down. It’s REALLY subtle.
Fortunately, though, it gave us the opportunity to just talk and talk and talk about the (Un)Discovered 2012 show last weekend. It was a blast and that’s about all I’ll say here – we talk way too much about it during the episode. It also gave Chewie the opportunity to come through like he always does with some archival recordings of some
questionable great Reno bands from yesteryear. We have recordings of The Princes of Pork; Dirty Steve; Mike, Tyson and Tommy; and the big bad Brian Knopf! They’ll all kick you in the teeth and send you running home to your bronies.
Also, Justan Hoover joins us in studio to not really talk much at all. He was kind of an actually boring guest… until we got to the quiz. Justan really brought it when it came to a couple of the quiz questions, beating
off out Chewie by a slim margin. We also got our occasional weekly update from The Vampirates who are on their whirlwind U.S. tour. They played at a place called the Murder Basement. It’s not a club. It’s really some punk basement. With a name. About murder. I wish I was as cool as Dave Masud.
We had a lot of fun. Even if it was just rehashing things we did 48 hours earlier and listening to the music of the 90s. Not sure if you will (yes I am… pshhhht… this show is always awesome!), but there are a lot of stories from the weekend that are pretty fucked up at the least. Love ya, Felix! Love ya, DaKodiak! BIG BIG THANKS to the sound crew and the food crew and the cleanup crew and the musicians and everyone that came out…. but especially THE SOUND AND FOOD CREWS!!!!
Thanks for listening!

Happy Halloween from the Worst Little Podcast!!!!
I hope you had a spook-tacular weekend. We had a great time at the Candyshoppe/Rocky Horror Pinky show, Zombie Crawl, Discovery museum and lots of other events around town. What a blast! If this town does any one holiday right, it’s Halloween! Especially when the weather is as warm as it was the past week! I’d say it’s probably been atlesast 7 or 8 years since Halloween night was that temparate. Slow year though – last year I ran out of candy by 8pm; this year, I was giving out handfuls of the junk and still had some left at 9pm!
The pumkin carving and CD release last thursday at Dogwater Studios was awesome. Even though the Worst Little Podcast studio was taken over by punkin’s and tables, the house was full of good cheer and horrific creativity. The Notorious RAD kept leaving the room when there was a “movie that’s immapropriate for little kids” came on the TV. The little trooper was a peach and stayed up late with us drunks.
On the show this week, wehave Reno’s own horror-rockers, the Vampirates, combining ghouls and zombies with punk rock and violence. Just towards each other, mind you. They’re “public service punk rock” and not here to harsh your good time. Chris and Dave sit down with us and talk about their most recent tour, drinking, and um, Halloween?? Yeah – LIVE! from the recent past. Just like always. Also in studio are Dogwater Studio’s very own Cody “Kodiak” and nevada trucker, Regis Mankey. Who, IMHO, is a moron. That’s right I said it. I’m callin you out, you redneck loser! I doubt you really even listen to this show.
Anyway, check your candy for cyanide (tastes like almonds) and razorblades (tastes like stabby).
And thanks for listening!
