Once upon a time, we started this show to not only give ourselves and our friends a forum to shamelessly self-promote and self-indulge; no – we also wanted to be a platform for new, new-to-you, or completely unheard of bands to connect with audiences and find their voice. Well, this week we welcome two-time loser […]

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 […]

Should I even bother complaining about the heat and smoke in this blog post? Other than marking a contextual moment in history on our erstwhile blog post… probably not.

Sometimes, even jaded assholes get surprised, like this week, on the show. I am so delighted to introduce to our listening audience The Will Shamberger Band of Fallon, NV (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I was mostly surprised because I was expecting a solo, not a new bunch of contenders. Will Shamberger, Jesse […]

What can I say about Jen Scaffidi that hasn’t already been said in hushed tones whenever she’s not around? I could say that she is an accomplished singer/songwriter, as a solo act or in one of many bands. I could say she is as comfortable playing indie/pop as she is generating noise-core. And I could […]

Hello everyone. It is June and we are already in the middle of some nightmarish heatwave!

“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 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 […]
