Funkytown Podcast

Covering the goings ons in near south side Fort Worth Tx with an emphasis on the music.

This week we have a brand new outfit from the Confounded's Josh Reed and Matt "Robotuner" Thomas called Josh and the Jet Noise. Josh and the Jet Noise is a 3 piece that includes Chris Grucza on drums. The first song we hear is a song called Darkness. We talk some about Josh's voice and songwriting style. Then we get to know Chris a little better. How do you manage an adult life with playing in a rock and roll band? Who are the two most okay bands in North Richland Hills? We chat about movies, tribute bands and small victories. They also have a couple of shows already lined up. June 8th at Lolas and June 22nd at Dreamy Life Happy Hour. The middle track is "Slam Bang Theatre" and there is a great story behind this song with some cool Fort Worth History. Then we have Zach Libs, Lil' Tay, Fortress Fest, Leon Bridges, Friday on the Green, Soundcloud vs Bandcamp, and jealousy. The closing track is The Last Dance. (Its about dancing in a night club while the world outside ends.) I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing more from these guys. I like the move from Hard Rock (Confounded) to something more Pop Rock.

I was in a really weird mood when we recorded this. It is because I was super stoked to sit and hang out with Victor Toruno for the next hour. He is really fun to hang out with and I haven't seen him in a while. So I was very much looking forward to this. If you aren't familiar with Victor he is the frontman singer/songwriter keyboardist for Svenny Baby. The opening song Wasteland is their most recent release. https://svennybabymusic.bandcamp.com/  The other two tracks are brand new never before heard songs from their newest album Voyager, which will be out soon! The whole show was a blur. I barely remember what we talked about so here are Zach Notes!

First song- Wastelands by Svenny Baby

Plagiarism is a word. How would Victor raise a child? Pistol Pete and child rearing. Mayfest and Main Street arts fest. Arlington band, EDM and singing to a track. New album called Voyager.

Second song- Lady Of Violet Eyes

Remakes and is the Rock running for President? Record store day and vinyls. Man crushes, Murderers and Netflix shows. Theme songs and bands who write them. We’re a gossip show? Fortress Fest and a Joke.

Third song- Deeper

This week its The Me-Thinks! That is all I should have to say. What else do you need? Of course we played songs. Joe Tacke, Zach Zanetich and I each picked one. You will have to listen to hear which ones are our personal favorites. Trucker Jon couldn't make it but we do have Ray Liberio, Marlin (Chris Lundy) and Brother Trashpokets (Brandon Brauer). This was awesome for all of us. We have wanted to have these guys on for some time now. We are big big fans of this band. We get alot of info out of them. Early influences, life before the Me Thinks (pre thinks), early shows and venues, high school life, Me Thinks Vs Haltom city and so much more. We throw everything at them. Zah Libs, Flash taco, fishing talk, Law Hawk, shoe talk, women and pain, the We Thinks, She Thinks and a new record. Thats all the tease you get this week. There is to much. Listen!! You will be glad you did. If you dont know this band, you must you must you must increase you music collection to add these boys.

This weeks guest is Matt Sacks. Matt Sacks is the owner and managing director at The Grackle Art Gallery. I haven't meet Matt before or been to The Grackle so I got to find out all kinds of cool stuff about him and interesting events happeening at The Grackle. Instead of music this week we have original spoken word from Matt. The opening is called Easter Bunny Vol. 1  After the open my apologies to The Me-Thinks. We start off with spoken word talk. A good place to see and do spoken word is The Dock Bookshop on Tuesday nights and/or the last Wednesday of the month at The Grackle.  Who influences Matt? What inspires him? Whats the difference between poetry, prose and spoken word? How do you submit art to the Grackle? What kind of musical acts does The Grackle look for? Is The Grackle a place to buy and sell art? All these questions and much more are answered as well as some cool events you can see coming up like the Vagina Monologues, Acoustic Doom and Renegade Voices. Plus pin hole camera talk.  Second poem- Third Arm and then we have Zachlibs. Then we go for it and talk about Easter, Respect, Tolerance, Compassion, Social Media and change. We don't only talk problems but offer solutions to fear and lonliness. Then Zach goes on a rant about Nutrition and goverment healthcare. If you can make sense of it send us an email at funkytownpodcast@gmail.com

The show concludes with Easter goals and one last poem called Vagina. As always

Bryan Wilson "The Texas Law Hawk" brings his talons of justice to One Horn Studios. I repeat. Bryan Wilson is this weeks guest on the show and he was greatness! If you're not familiar with the Law Hawk, then you should hear this episode and if you are familiar with him then you are probably half way through already. Bryan is from Fort Worth and attended Paschal High School, which is where my daughter is going next year, and after a couple of crazy videos shot in Austin Tx he decided to do a Fort Worth centric video that went viral. If you have seen one of his videos you have probably seen this one, his 3rd one. He got some awards and accolades and even did a couple of Taco Bell commercials for the Super Bowl. His commercials are wild, loud and bombastic. A total blast to watch. See Bryan crash through glass on motor cycles, jet ski jumps, body slam a Christmas table, light himself up covered in firecrackers, all while giving you important legal advice. Ok so back to the show. The opening track is from The Me-Thinks called Texas Gigolo. The person in this songs will probably need to call the Law Hawk after getting pulled over with a beer bong. We talk to Bryan about his videos. Who writes them, shoots them, if they are homemade, where the idea came from, how other lawyers respond. Speaking of other lawyer we also talk about some of the pioneers before him like the Long Arm of the Law and the Texas Hammer. We find out how easy it is to have your 4th amendment rights violated and what you should do when pulled over. The middle track is from Joe Savage "No Fear". After the break we talk sword laws, knife laws, and gun laws. We have some question from fellow podcaster Dustin. He has some interesting questions about open container laws, weed laws, nudity laws and State Law vs Federal Law. Seriously you guys this show is fun, interesting and very informative. I hope none of you ever need a lawyer for criminal law or personal injury but if you do, here is a local guy who is very creative, smart and good at what he does. If you need justice he has the talons for it! "Due Process!? Do wheelies!!" Bryan Wilson The closing track is Mucho Mango from the Longshots. You can watch all the videos here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5yF5BzhuXZOWioE3HywPnw

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.

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!
