On today’s episode of Cold Ones & Rolled Ones with Ami Lawless, Ami’s in studio guests will be; Eric Cutler and Erika Osterhout of Bay Area old school death metal band NECROSIC. Although NECROSIC is a newer band, both Cutler and Osterhout have been kicking around the bay area metal scene for some time; Cutler a founding member of legendary AUTOPSY and DOOMED, while Osterhout has done time in SCOLAX. We will be spinning some tunes from NECROSIC as well as the other bands both these bad asses have been a part of and of course we will be chatting about all things NECROSIC as well as the Bay Area metal scene/community. You can always hit us up in the chat room or on the phone lines during the show if you want to ask a question. This is a not to be missed show and if you’ve ever been a fan of old school death metal, thrash or punk; then this is for you. Other members of NECROSIC include vo-killist Steve Morris (ENVIRUSMENT & DEMENSION 13), guitarist Scott Stanton (MUMMIFICATION & GLOB) and rounding out this stellar line up is drummer John Shafer (FUNERAL). This is a band to keep an eye on because they seriously rule with their brand of death/thrash/punk shenanigans and are already building quite the fan-base here as well as abroad. You know the drill, hardcore/punk/metal shall be played, tune in for the music/stay for the chaos! 6:00-8:00pm every Thursday.

HEWHO, will be performing a rare acoustic performance live in the Radio Valencia studios tonight with his band, this is not to be missed! HEWHO has a brand spanking new album out called LOVE/HATE, we debuted some tracks off it on last weeks show to critical acclaim from listeners near and far. Tonight’s show will be chock full of surprises, HEWHO is one of those larger than life punx, no telling what will fall out of his mouth between songs. We’ll also play some tracks from LOVE/HATE and will be chatting about all things HEWHOCANNOTBENAMED…anyone remember him and THE DWARVES hoax regarding his death back in 1993? That hoax led to THE DWARVES being dropped by their label Sub-Pop Records while landing them in the Punx Rawk Hall of Fame for thumbing their noses at one of “thee” biggest labels to be on at that time; fucking classic. We here at Radio Valencia woud like to sincerely thank HEWHOCANNOTBENAMED for playing our upcoming Radio Valencia Aggressive Acoustic Benefit at 518 Valencia on June 15th. As if this show wasn’t busting with enough goodness as is, we will also be giving away a couple sets of tickets to the much anticipated BOBBY JOE EBOLA & the CHILDREN MacNUGGITS show at Great American Music Hall and also a couple sets of tickets to the SUBHUMANS and TOTAL CHAOS show coming up at The Oakland Metro.

On today’s episode of Cold Ones and Rolled Ones with Ami Lawless, local punkers AGATA will be live in the studio. If you’re not familiar with AGATA; Emerging from a a smokey cloud of the east bays finest came four dudes hell bent for leather. With minds rotted with rock and roll, squalled teenage warehouse punk and endless backpacks of tall cans they set forth to record a raging no frills testament to the power of 100% loud tone. Original screamer Tom has left the fold to pursue a full time career in cataloging Russian nesting dolls for the national museum of Costa Rica, leaving behind the three soldiers known as Omar, Dan and the elusive beast known as Yeti to carry the torch of all things good and right in the world. As the sun rises, America can rest knowing that Agata soldiers on providing the soundtrack for burrito chompers, slam dancing grandmas and other assorted bad ass motherfuckers to make it through another day. Hey Ho Let’s Go. Tune into radiovalencia.fm from 6:00-8:00pm tonight, tune in for the music/stay for the chaos!!

Also on the show, OBN IIIs from Austin, TX. These Garage Punk kids I gave the “Best Band of SXSW 2010″ stamp of approval. They were fuckin’ raw, gritty and I haven’t seen that shit in years and it’s also not a feeling you get from every band you see or hear these days. The 7” record they have out right now on Super Secret Records (ATX) only gives you the tip of the tit on what is in store for you when you see them live. They’re coming through San Francisco to participate in this years Noise Pop Festival. They’ll be performing this Thursday, February 28th at The Knockout in front of a sold-out show. Get there early if you want in to see these crazy fucks go at the locals. It’ll be like another asteroid coming down onto Earth and destroying shit all around.

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.
