New Psychobilly Garden Party show out. #170.

New #Psychobilly Garden Party out - #170. Download /stream on #RadiobillyFM Subscribe on #iTunes, soon to be streamed on #BazookaRadio "

And here we are with another weekend starter for you, and your auntie. If she’s into it. This week we dig back into the catalogue of previous psycho releases from 2011, 2012 & 2013 to kick your proverbial arses into gear for the weekend. Just because there are not that many new releases doesn’t mean this show isn’t cutting edge. It’s so edgy I don’t know what shape it would be termed to be in a mathematical sense. It’s got more edgy sides than I could shake a stick at. '

As well as tuneage it’s right back into the Meta-badger, The Transvestite and the Cupboard

Are you ready to hit it?

Missing show notes for Reverend Velocian last week...


Eagle-eyed listeners will have seen that Reverend Velocian's Optional Pants Ministry was missing the show notes and his associated links that he kindly and with military precision -as expected by a member of the Chainsaw Army- provided. I shall post these up on the page so you can go fill your boots. Oh! Putting together show #164 as week speak, by the way.

Redesign of the blog

I've been back and forth trying to decide whether to ditch the blogger site and go over to Tumblr. Maybe even to create a site from scratch but I keep coming back to this old dinosaur. It's quick, easy and can be hacked into something more interesting (which is pretty important for a geek like me).

Sitting here in the big house and writing is never going to as kick-ass as putting together a show unless I can make this website a bit more fun and exciting in itself. So that is the goal. Along with the PGP reboot, which is about time ... I think I've been following a similar format for a couple of years now ... I'm going to reboot this website, so - I'm looking for ideas and anybody who wants to write, draw, make films, whatever for the site. I know it's pretty unusual that anybody gets their asses in gear to actually submit and create something, but I've got a feeling that The Chainsaw Army are a bit more exciting than your average consumer. So, prove me right and drop me a line. All the usual places are good.

Cheers, Nate.

Hot Rod Horror Garage news

Regular listeners to #psychobilly Garden Party deadcast show know that Mark who produces the show-within-a-show “Hot Rod Horror Garage” doesn’t do Facebook. He does, however, produce an awesome show. Here is a repost from the Google+ page where you’ll find him.

Mark Naker:

Hey there rock’n’rollers. Its full on spring time out here at the garage, and spring time means its time to get out there and cruise. So Ill be whippin’ up another serving of the HRHG this weekend.

I think this time around, Doc and I are going to take a slice of the old and cover it in new sauce. Ill be hunting down upbeat kick ass covers of old 50’s classics.

Thats right y’all, so get your car washed and waxed, and roll on down to the local drive in, HRHG cruise night is comin’ soon!

HRHG Cruise Night coming soon

Hey there rock'n'rollers!  Its springtime in Missouri, and if you can look past the clouds of pollen in the air you can see that everything has turned a dozen shades of rich green, flowers are blooming, skirts are getting shorter and there is a special energy in the air.

Thats right, its cruising, car shows, and drag racing time!  Hot damn!  So in honor of this wonderful time of year Ill be working on a show this weekend.  Im taking a look back at the 50's, grabbin' the good bits, and finding out who did a kick ass cover of those classic cruisin' tunes.

So wash and wax your ride, pomp that hair high, grab your best gal (or guy) and head on out to the drive in! Ill be round soon with a big serving of rock-a-burger.

10 random reasons why you know you’re a psychobilly

  1. When people ask what music you’re into you have to passionately explain what it is.
  2. Your heroes don’t hang out backstage – they’re at the bar after the gig to say hello.
  3. You judge a weekender by how much of it you remember. The less, the better.
  4. You have the best mates in the entire world.
  5. In scary movies you’re the only one giggling when everybody else is screaming.
  6. The music your parents loved directly inspired the bands you love.
  7. You've lost count of the amount of times you've said “no, it’s not the same as rockabilly”.
  8. You all happily give each other a nose bleed dancing at a gig but the moment somebody falls down, everybody helps to pick them up.
  9. The bands you love can play as well live as they do on a recording.
  10. You just cannot understand why everybody else doesn't get it, but are secretly glad that they don’t.

Hot Rod Horror Garage - Reviews an album; Calamitiez

Hey there kats and kittens, hows about a bit of an album review?  Oh yeah, that sounds nice, doesn't it? Right then, lets get to it.

Doc Wrench and myself welcome you to the first of however many reviews we end up doing!

First up, Calamitiez, a band out of Barcelona. Were reviewing their self titled disc, you heard one of the tracks on HRHG#9 (Toxic Love). This one has had half a dozen or more spins out in the garage already and I've barely had it two weeks. Their sound mixes a good spoonful of punk in with some bass slapping psychobilly, throw in a bloody spattering of horror themed songs and you have yourself a nice plateful of ear candy.

Heh, pipe down Mark, these guys don't want some wine snob review. They want to know that the Calamitiez keep the pace up and the rock rippin' your ears solid through almost the entire album.  Hell, they dont even give y'all a breather with a slower song until track 11.  So all y'all keep that in mind, y'all gotta wreck for 10 songs before you get a beer break!  Make the sucker quick too, they get right back on the gas and kickin' ass on the next song.

Come on Doc, thats not telling them anything other than when to get a beer. They are grown ups, and know when the hell to get their own damn beer.  Its more important to know that the mix is done really well, the bass slaps come through clear and punchy without droning over the great crunchy guitar riffs. The vocals are strong throughout the album and the band plays tight. Y'all can really crank the hell out of this disk and wont end up with a shit heap of musical sludge.

Look at you and your fancy words... of course they can crank it up, you just turn the damn knob to 11. But first, they gotta get their mitts on it.  So if all y'all point your webwinder click-a-majigger over here... Raucous Records you can get this bad boy on CD.

Good call Doc, there are other places to buy it too I'm sure, but Raucous always has a damn good selection of great music. Heres a video, the quality leans towards the "recorded on a potato" side, but you get the idea. Calamitiez "Army of the Underworld"   A few tracks that really get my wreck up on this disc: The Man Who Cannot Die, Covering Your Face, and Toxic Love.
Well, that wraps up this little experiment.  Let me know what you think; should we shut the hell up or give this review thing another spin sometime?

Keep the skinny pedal down, and and speakers begging for their lives!
-Mark & Doc Wrench

Puttin' on the cans, mixing up a little something so all y'all can shake your cans!

Well well well, that Nitro-shine concoction Doc mixed up in #8 has really put a fire under us here in the garage.  So the wrenches are out, the compressor is running, and were gonna put some wheels on another episode this week.

Valentines day is nearly upon us. Lets get serious for a moment; whether or not you will be celebrating Valentines day depends on a number of complex social factors. Such variables as your culture acknowledging the day as special, relationship status, and more... bah who am I kidding.  You are either doin' it or not *wink wink, nudge nudge*! Either way you need some music.  Preferably something that kicks ass, because lets be honest 'billies, romantic sappy crap isn't usually our gig.  So grab a partner, or not, and get ready for another batch of Nitro-shine for your earholes!

Lastly, after the last show I was asked what is Nitromethane. Well, you can click that link for science, or just know that it can be a fuel for certain extreme power purposes. It has enormous energy potential as you can see in this picture of a nitro explosion back in 1999.

New! Hot Rod Horror Garage page.


HRHG Marque

That’s right! If you click on the Hot Rod Horror Garage on the navigation bar above you’ll ride straight on over to the new page for the show-within-a-show. If you’re so lazy that you can’t make your mouse pointer or slidey finger move all of that way you can also click here.

Mark and Doc Wrench, or maybe just one of them, will be writing for the PGP Show blog from now on. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised what we’re cooking up over here on the site. It’s going to be a whole lot of fun.

Go have a read and get some k-nowledge about the genesis of H.R.H.G.

Getting to Know: A Show Within the Show (HRHG).

    The old tales say that somewhere, deep in the woods of Missouri near Route 66 there is a haunted garage. Long lost to normal folks, some even say it exists beyond the veil of time and space; or that it is a portal to some far away and most unwholesome land. Well, I'm here to set you straight... That isn't even the half of it!
The Garage, and our gas pump!
    The Hot Rod Horror Garage was once attached to an asylum, abandoned many years ago amid a torrent of scandal and accusations of murder, torture, human sacrifice, and much more. One particularly nasty inhabitant of that asylum was known simply as 'Doc'. Turns out this fellow was quite a dabbler in many things that are best left undisturbed. In the final days, before the asylum was shut down Doc went missing, he had skulked off into the maintenance tunnels and was assumed dead.  Really what had happened was that Doc knew what was in store for him if he was caught, so he hid; just long enough for the authorities to leave.
The asylum graveyard.

    What happened next isn't fully known, but somehow old Doc got tangled up in a mess with a demonic portal, and an old car that was in the maintenance garage. The car is haunted and demands frequent blood sacrifices, Doc does his best to appease it in fear of what would happen to him if he upsets the demon. After years of serving this possessed car Doc has gone quite mad, and has nearly lost all grip with reality.  The locals stories now all call him 'Doc Wrench' his reputation as a mad mechanic/scientist with a haunted hot rod is legend throughout the region.

This here is our road, if you see it; come on down!
    That is where I come in, I help Doc. I'm the voice of reason, the cat that gets things done when they need doin', and the guy trying to keep Doc from going completely over the deep end. I handle the boring stuff around the garage; keeping the music rocking, arranging parties, buying supplies, working out business deals, and most importantly... luring folks out to the woods to learn the legend of Doc Wrench.  You see, if the legend is lost, no one will head way out in the woods and that makes it a lot harder to keep this blood lusting car under control. Its an important job, maybe not as exciting as being a madman, but someone has to do it. Some say I've done this for so long, I might be as mad as Doc. Some even say I am Doc, its hard to say for sure. I guess anything is possible.

Remember the barn dance? It was in here!
    But enough of that boring history stuff, lets talk about the show within a show: Hot Rod Horror Garage!
After getting my feet wet with a few issues of the show I started to sort out where my ideas were working and where they don't work so well.  I've settled in on a plan to try for the next few shows and see how it works out. I won't guarantee that it will be heavy psychobilly, because quite honestly, there is a lot of great music that needs to be heard. So in addition to some psychobilly, expect to hear rockabilly, punk, horror rock, interesting hard rock, maybe some bluegrass and other strange bits. Its probably worth noting that I will often lean heavily toward hot rod themed songs, or songs that are good while driving.  I hope you enjoy the show, or have the fast forward button handy!  Ill be talking to you soon...

Contact the show or find me lurking on the Google+ Page.
Here is a bonus, Doc's test still.

This week's listening. Gothabilly Razin' Hell.

Gothabilly Razin' Hell
Good morning psychogardenerbillys and chainsaw chicks.
I thought I would punch a few lines about a compilation album I am revisiting this week. It is the excellent "Gothabilly Razin' Hell" from Skully Records. This is the third compilation of gothabilly artists released by Skully Records and many of the artists have been featured on the previous two albums too. We have many well-known artists playing in the doom country influenced gothabilly style like The Coffinshakers, Big John Bates, and Mr. Badwrench but also several lesser known or more regional-based artists like Pussyliquor and The Spectres. Psychocharger rears it's head again and though I would argue that they are not what I would personally term gothabilly, they are also very hard to classify anyway and they fit in with the overall sound of the compilation. I have played the previous two compilations several times on the PGP Show - in fact they were heavily featured on the first two or three show. This makes them dear to my old, creaking, undead heart . From a cursory sweep of the intercobwebs I have found that you can track down sellers of the CD via Amazon. I will be spinning some tracks from the album on PGP this week which will be show number 149. In the meantime, how about dropping a few dollars, euros or pounds to get a hold of this classic compilation. Time for me to grab some coffee.

Have a kick-arse Wednesday!

Happy New Year Chainsaw Army!

Here we go again with the diseased carousel that is the PGP Show. It's the fourth year that the podcast has been dragged into the light with a twitch and a spasm and drenched in blood-spatters of living technicolour.

This year's resolution is to spread the disease - more, even more and most. Psychobilly, primitive rock 'n roll, punk and trash have had a really strong 2013 and The Psychobilly Garden Party is here to support the bands who make it and the beautiful weirdos that follow it and make 2014 even stronger. That is the deal.

Now it is time to lay down until my head stops exploding.
