On this episode we have 3/5ths of Manana Cowboy. Houston Holtman, Adam Horvath and Wendy Mills join Zach, Joe and I in One Horn Studios as we cast some punny pod. The opening track is called Arkansas which led us down a rabbit hole right off. We get back on track and talk new band mates and a new album coming out soon. Album release date is June 9! So we can an early peak into some of the songs. We talk about some past shows and great places to play. Learn where the album was recorded, how long it took to write and a little about Wendy. Houston is the man behind House of the Rising Thumb. Local music house shows. Great space and great times. The middle track is If Only You. Its a wonderful song that I can't seem to get the name right. We play some Zach Libs that involves Space Crappie (possible band name or song here. You're Welcome). We talk some SXSW, building implosions and have a heated debate over milkshakes with dinner. This was a fun episode to make and the cast of characters are crazy cool. Follow Manana Cowboy on Facebook, Bandcamp or just around town. They like stalkers. You can find them April 20 (420) at 515 Bar and April 21 at Dreamy Life and again at House of the Rising Thumb. The closing track is a preview of things to come and I really like it. Its my favorite of the three and its called Dreaming.

Hippy Bathday 3 was a total success! Thanks to all that came, all that played and thank you Susie Ramon for putting on one hell of a show. The 3 songs this week are from the 3 bands that played. Jesse Gage, Chillamundo and we close with a wonderful Andy Pickett song. In this episode we relive Hippy Bathday, talk about Shipping and Recievings SXSW Kick Off, Poop Deck lonely drinking, the smoking ban and whatever else that crossed our mind. It is a fun chill show with just conversation with friends. Thanks Joe Tacke, Zach Zanethich and Susie Ramone. You guys are the bomb diggity!
This! This! This! If you listen to anything make it this. I am not even sure how to explain whats happening here. You may want to go back a few episodes and listen to the second half of Future Funkytown Federation of Furries to get some context. Garage Barrage is a band consisting of Ian McKenyon (Guitar Keys and Vocals) Ranger Parrish (Drums) and Jon Lanier (Bass). Just three dudes who hang out on Friday night in Ians garage drinking beer, doing impromtu jams and awsome covers. Why do they do this? Because it is fun! Thats it. They have a good time, put it on bandcamp and go back to work and living life. Its awsome to me. They invited us (Joe Tacke, Zachary Zanetich, Susie Ramone and Rebekah Elizabeth) out to the garage to experience the magic first hand. The first song they played was MC Demo Reel. (Rebekah Elizabeth's favorite) but it didn't record so I put the bandcamp version up in its place. Then we have some interview, some live music and more interview and more live music. This isn't our typical format so listen all the way to the end. It's not over till it's over. I did get some digital noise on the recorder. I am not sure where it was coming from but I think I did a good job putting it way in the background. The music was recorded live by Ian and sent over to me. I put my interviews in with his music. This, I believe, will also be released on bandcamp. (music only) so check out there bandcamp for this and may other great releases. https://garagebarrage.bandcamp.com/
This is the most fun we have had doing a show in quite some time. I really hope you enjoy it as much as we did recording it. The songs we did here live is Battle F**K, Holler, Sorrow, Birthday song (for Zach) and then Joe, Zach and Rebekah joined Ranger and Jon for an amazing version of I Only Want You (EODM). Seriously this isn't something to miss!
Wrex is a local rapper/ hip hop artist. A Fort Worh Weekly Music Award Nominee and performer at Arts Google and a lot of you are familiar with him. I wasn't. That is until i was going through Bandcamp and came across his Winter EP. The opening track on the EP, and the opening track for the show, is called Burning Sage. This plus the tag hippie hop had me interested. As soon as I started playing the track and listening to the lyrics I knew we had to have this guy on. He couldnt have been a better guest. We talked about hip hop culture and trying to play the game but remain authentic to self. It is interesting to compare it to other forms of music and the game being played in the industry. Being a hippie at heart but a rapper by trade Wrex finds himself in a weird place. The thing I like most about Wrex is his lyrics. Being a hippie type myself I can relate more to his brand of rap more than most. I especially like the struggle and loneliness in the middle track called Bartender/Splilling Drinks. Zachary is out this week with Rebekah Elizabeth for her birthday. Happy Birthday Rebekah. Susie Ramon couldn't make it either. RIP Mama Cass. Joe Tacke is here though and even jumps in the interview with some really good questions. (Not that I am suprised) Wrex's Winter Ep is a concept of sorts and he will release one for each season this year with Winter being the first. I think he did a great job with this EP and look forward to some spring sounds soon. (I think April) We also talk about old school rap, rock and rap combos, flu conspiracy and much much more. He was fun to have on and I am already looking forward to having him back on for the Spring or Summer release and we will go deep for sure. Check out this dude. He is true to himself and his true self is pretty freaking awesome. You dig? The last track we play is F Society featuring Dru B Shinin' You can get the EP for 5 buck on bandcamp https://sagemodewrex.bandcamp.com/

This weeks guest are the guys from Posival (Pause-eh-vol). Michael Posival, Adrian Radons and Colin join Joe, Zach and I and we have a great time getting to know each other. Michael has brand new bandmates and a new album coming out soon called Opposite Day. The opening track to the show this week is off of that album and its titled Sheets. We talked about Whiskeyboy Radio and Michaels apperance on there some 2-3 years ago. Michael is also in the Delzells and played a show with Mean Motor Scooter Friday night and we all shared a space but didn't know each other yet. Not sure how we missed that one. Colin and Adrian also play in another band called Ded-Suns. Did you hear that the Live oak is turning into the Fairmount Music Hall? Did you hear about what happened at the Bearded Lady? Did you know Zach is a master at the Hula Hoop? The middle track is also off of the upcoming album and its called Pansy. We do Zach libs and I think we found some people who have never heard of Mad Libs before. we also talk about living and playing in Denton, Noise Rock, do fish feel pain and pets vs food. We were kinda all over the place this week but we had such a good time with the boys from Posival. You can see their first offical show April 13 and look for the album to come out in March. In the mean time you can hear a preview and hear past stuff here. https://posival.bandcamp.com/ The last track is a nice acoustic track called Trails.
This weeks guest is Matthew Broyles. I was familiar with him from his radio show, The Barbershop on 97.5 KFTW FM The Pirate, and knew he was a great conversationalist. The opening song he starts dropping gold nuggets. So todays first track, Office Suite part 1 by The Matthew Show, is filled with special commentary and then we are off to the races. We talk about Memphis and its similarities to Fort Worth. Somehow we go from that to guns, "forest porn, hollograms, tech framing and singularity. Which leads us to Matthew being an author and a couple of his books Rewired and Trinity. The middle track is the Lesbian Song (Southern Belles). After the break we have some Jerry Reed talk and this made me very very happy. We also talk country music, songwriting, cable access = YouTube, the future, ubanization, and #metoo. We were all over the map all while watching the super bowl and we make predictions. Matthewe is a very busy man. Radio Show Host, Author, Singer Songerwriter and does an Essay Club. You can find him of facebook, https://twitter.com/thematthewshow and his website http://www.thematthewshow.com/ The closing track is When the Night Comes

This week James Zametz from Keep Fort Worth Funky is our guest and man oh man I love it when James stops by. We have a full crew this week. All are well and accounted for. Joe Tacke, Zachary Zanetich and Susie Ramon all join in for our first catch up of the new year. The opening number is a little ditty called Paid by Andy Pickett. With that comes a very big announcement about Hippy Bathday 3. Zach takes a trip to the Zoo, there is some Star Wars/ Movie talk and then we are off to talk about the womens march. James was there on site doing some man on the street interviews. I think maybe a funkytownpodcast first. The middle song we play is by Cody Lynn Boyd and it's called I Play With Fire. This is an interesting young man with an interesting sound. After the break we play Zach Libs, Dustin gets a shout out and I have an idea for a race down Magnolia. We finish off the show with some tiny home talk. I had lots of question about tiny homes and why someone doesnt just buy an RV. Are tiny homes just a result of depression era living? Can we just move away and have our own tiny home compound? If you don't know James, then you've been under a rock, you are really missing out on a great dude. He has huge ideas and a bigger heart! http://www.keepfortworthfunky.com/ http://www.elementalrenovations.com/ https://www.casapequena.space/

Mandy Hand is 1/2 of Big Heaven. The other half, Jesse Gage, couldn't make it but that didnt stop us from having a great show. We start the show off with Creature. Its the first track off of their 4 track EP. The middle track is track 2 off the Ep called Jim smells like weed and we close with song 3 called Pearls. That means there is one song you didnt hear and for $4 you can own all 4 tracks and hear the closing track. We did Zach libs without Zachary, but Susie is here and Joes on the 1s and 2s. Sorry for the minimal description. I have been fighting an illness the last few days and this is taking it out of me. Pick up the EP here https://bigheaven.bandcamp.com/album/strike-a-match
