A GHOUL is a folkloric monster associated with graveyards and consuming human flesh and playing bone-snapping splatterthrash, often classified as but not necessarily undead.
If you are perpexed by this post;
Ghoul is playing a secret show some time very soon in the Bay Area. A riddle will be released every few days that will give you a clue as to where and when. It is up to YOU to use your addled brain to follow the clues. YOUR FIRST CLUE is:
In Creepsylvania things are hidden
Under piles of bones and midden
But stranger still, I can relate
Is under fig leaves hides a date
I think the last riddle may have been a little too abstruse for some of you lovelies out there, so here’s another shot at figuring out the date of the secret show!
A spider’s home
A blind man’s dream
In page and chapter
Hides the key
Mr. Fang here. I’ve made a new riddle telling you WHERE the secret show is.
An Old French sword and a tiny train

A ruined meal in a hill of riches

On tonight’s episode of the Only Radio Show That Matters AKA Cold Ones & Rolled Ones with Ami Lawless, the band NIGHT NURSE (from PDX) will be rolling through the Rad-Val studios and chatting us up. NIGHT NURSE has only been in existence for less than 2 years but have made an impact on the Portland punk/metal circuit. This band has a hybrid stench-core/ripper crust sound going on that brings to mind bands like SACRILEDGE, HELLBASTARD and even some DISCHARGE (only faster). One of the stand out elements to NIGHT NURSE is their vo-killist Jennifer, whose frustrated & angry banshee shrieks pile drive the music like a steam engine. Combined with some straight on ripping riffs, heavy and moody elements and really good song structure…plainly put this band pulverizes all in its path with their brand of no holds barred death-crust. NIGHT NURSE is touring the western part of this country right now slaying the masses. Best get your arse over to The Hemlock in SF tonight and catch their set with the mighty BADR VOGU. As if this isn’t enough, members of this band have also done time in; HELLSHOCK, DETESTATION, SPLATTERHOUSE, BLOOD FREAK, ABANDON, FALL OF THE BASTARDS etc. This will be the last CO&RO show at the current Rad-Val location, we are moving to a plush spot where we will be able to have bands play “live” on the show. Keep an ear to the ground for some upcoming shenanigans.

Ahoy dear listeners! On tonight’s fine episode of Cold Ones & Rolled Ones with Ami Lawless (AKA Thee only radio show that matters), guests will be skater/musicians Brandon Bailey and Jared Power; who are two of the extreme bad ass skaters that will be participating in Skate Til U Die. For those unfamiliar, Skate Til U Die is an epic skate-a-thon that is in its 5th year of existence here in the Bay Area. The brain child, so to speak of punk icon John The Baker (last week’s guest on Cold Ones) and his buddy (and at the time housemate) Jared Power. About 6 years ago these two fine fellas had the idea to skateboard from Richmond CA down to San Jose CA in order to hang out with their homies who had always been coming up to Richmond to hang out. It took them 19 hours from beginning until they reached their destination. A little beaten down and weary, they dusted themselves off, patted themselves on the back and shared their experience with friends all over the Bay Area. We were all blown away at the physical feat these two endured in order to hang out with their South Bay homies. Now this is one extreme expression of true friendship! The following year the dynamic duo decided it was time to do it again; but this time invite more folks to participate and raise some money for charity. This is how Skate Til U Die was born…now its five years later and going strong as ever. The other intriguing part to this skate-a-thon is that our boys John and Jared incorporated their other love; punk-fucking-rock into the equation. Skate Til U Die takes place over 3 days and at the end of each day of skating punk bands play and the party ensues. This is every teenage punk rawkers dream weekend = skating ones flesh off topped off with some of the Bay Area’s finest punk bands tearing down the house. Tune in for a chat with two dudes that have truly given their blood, sweat and tears to Skate Til U Die. Both Brandon and Jared have been integral elements in each Skate Til U Die and this year is no different, both these guys will be playing each night with their respective bands after hours of skating. Something that should not be missed.
