As if the ticket giveaways aren’t enough, Dick Lucas from UK anarcho-punk legends SUBHUMANS will be chatting us up about punk and the meaning of life. It’s almost unfathomable that the SUBHUMANS first EP “Demolition War” was releases in 1981 and their first album “The Day The Country Died” came out thirty years ago this year! Not many punk bands have kept it going this long and have stayed as relevant as the SUBHUMANS have. This band did take some years off between 1985-1998, with only a one off reunion gig during this period, however when they came back they became quite the touring entity. Making the jump across the pond to North America regularly playing sold out clubs and DIY venues. Dick also fronts the dancy political ska-punk band CITIZEN FISH, his brand of well thought out socio-political  and witty lyrics definitely makes him stand out in the crowd of punk.

Rob Chaos of TOTAL CHAOS will also be calling in from the road and giving away the secret on how to live your life in TOTAL CHAOS. TOTAL CHAOS started shaking up the punk scene in Pomona CA back in 1989 and were the political punks that actually got things done in their local punk community. Rob was a part of Food Not Bombs, helped open the Los Angeles Anarchist Center and helped bring attention to The Big Mountain Indian Reservation. Rob is also a co-founder of S.O.S. Records and was the owner of The Showcase Theatre in Corona; which was a mainstay venue from 1993-2008, hosting thousands of bands over the years.

But wait, there’s more; in the first hour our home-grrrl Laura Pleasants (vo-kills and guitar) of dark psych-metal band KYLESA will be on the show talking about all things KYLESA and the true meaning of “the dirty south”. Laura has also generously given us a couple brand new KYLESA tracks to premier on the show and we’ll also play some of their classic oldies. Don’t forget KYLESA will be decimating Slims this coming Saturday May 25th.

This is going to be one helluva show today! Be sure to tune in at radiovalencia.fm from 6:00pm-8:00pm today Thursday May 23, 2013, tune in for the music and free stuff, stay for the chaos!

studio. You are forwarned that DIGESTOR has a very important announcement that he wants each and every  one of you little humanoids to tune in for…your puny existance may depend on this.

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

Clue Two

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

Clue Three

Mr. Fang here. I’ve made a new riddle telling you WHERE the secret show is.

An Old French sword and a tiny train
222 is cleaved in twain
A ruined meal in a hill of riches
This show will make you shit your britches

NIGHT NURSE on Cold Ones tonight, Thursday September 13th

September 13, 1pm

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.
