In an auspicious sea change signifying the end of an era, The Fist Fam is no more, it has ceased to be. But belching forth from the cashed ashes of the Fist, like some manner of unseemly, inebriate phoenix, comes Weekend Cult. Composed of a smarter, faster, stronger version of the exact same line up, this group is to the Fist Fam what The Six Million Dollar Man was to Steve Austin. This lofty claim is evidenced by the release of Weekend Cult’s first official body of work, a twelve song collection of the same name. Like many previous sects welcoming new members, easy entree is offered with the “name-your-own-price” option on the group’s bandcamp page, but buyer beware, there will be brainwash. Not since the fiery, apocalyptic ending of the Branch Davidians has a congregation been so hard to leave. You may have to call the Janet Reno & the ATF to get this music out of your head. Don’t take my word for it, feel free to peruse this review from Asheville’s Mountain X-press music chief Alli Marshall
Once you have become convinced by our formidable propaganda, follow the link below & become a devotee… feel free to earn a place of privilege in the Weekend Cult by donating $30 or more to the faith… or don’t, but remember the Chicken Bus only stops for the believers.
Once again Macon Beats is back at it like a crack habit. If you’re anything like me, you’re beginning to harbor suspicions that all this guy does is fish, take pictures of himself fishing, make mixtapes & then use the pictures of himself fishing as mixtape covers. Now if he could just achieve a feasible means of getting his turntables onto the boat in some employable fashion the circle of life for this proud Thug-Neck would be complete. Although I’m unsure what the long term effects of negligent amounts of massive sub bass would be on the well being of aquatic wildlife… but that’s their problem. Never mind the bollocks, here’s the Swamp Bucket Mix
On my recent trip out to The Bay I had the good fortune to sleep off most of my benders fully dressed, in Ronnie Mac’s lazy boy. One of the fringe benefits of Pappy’s upright slumber suite is that his room mate is S.F. underground stalwart & Gurp City production genius Optik. Probably best known for producing the entirety of TopR’s “Cheap Laughs For Dead Comedians” album, Optik has also produced UG classics for the likes of Z Man, Fist Fam & more. Shortly after his work on Cheap Laughs he began work on a his own album, featuring an all-star team of the rappers with whom he frequently collaborates. I had the good timing to be in town during a few of these sessions & ended up on a couple of the joints that were recorded for the album. As often happens with independent music some time has passed & for whatever reasons the album has yet to be released. So rather than keep all these gems to himself Optik recently began leaking a few of them on his “The Chillout blog” & soundcloud etc. This week’s release is called “Times”(The End is Near) ft. Foul Mouth Jerk, TopR & Word Smiff. You can can grab the download below along with a few other unreleased Optik rarities.
Fist Fam’s OG Triple OG DJ Macon Beatz steps back into the mixtape spotlight with his brand new All Gurp City Mix. This release is 43 mins of material spanning several years from both the West Coast & Down Souf branches of the Gurp City Crew, including The Fist Fam, Eddie K, TopR, Foul Mouth Jerk, The Ville Boyz, Smidi , Z-Man and more. Perfect party music. So don’t sleep… Pass out.
In honor of my Thanksgiving visit to the Bay & the Fist Fam’s continuing campaign to facilitate my assassination via Jameson, which will inevitably be legally ruled “death by misadventure”, I am posting this new piece of free music. It is the Fist Fam’s electr-ode to that most deleterious of spirits, Irish Whiskey. It is titled “Green Bottle Brown” & features the talents of the one & only Gus Cutty & the mysterious rantings of the idiot-savant-in-charge Jay EZ (yes, yes in fact he does say “voo-doo from my nail clippings could never kill me”) . Click the link below to grab the track & it’s oh so appropriate artwork…
Now that my week of slacking is over it’s time to get back on my posting grind. It is in that spirit that I give you the last installment of our deep, penetrating probe on the physical act of love with man’s best friend & other quadrupeds. This clip includes a call-in from an audience member with a suspiciously extensive amount of information to share on the topic. Far be it from me to call into question the proclivities of Worst Case Scenario listeners. I’m not here to judge, merely to assail character, slanderously accuse, and sometimes impune. With any luck there will be more highlights soon to come, on topics other than the salacious treatment of cherished family pets. But that may be a rather ambitious hope for the breadth of our subject matter. For some reason this clip of pt.3 is accidentally labeled as pt.2… nonetheless it is actually pt. 3
More & more each day it seems clear that Al Lover has a chip on his shoulder that he has yet to be referred to as “Uber-Producer” and capitalizing on that obsessive work ethic is Fist Fam rapper & whiskey phenom Ronnie Mac aka “Pappy”. The pair got together for this apparent one-off and put together a video to go with it. After seeing the video I have one question… “smoke DMT much Pappy?” Not much happens in the way of action in the video but anyone whose partaken in that mother of all hallucinogenics may enjoy some mild flashbacks & possible heart palpitations. Try not to let that distract you from the outstanding rap music.
If you enjoy the track click the link below and take home another free song from the Gurp City South crew.
In the first year of broadcasting Wost Case Scenario we often assumed that we would be kicked off the air largely for the slapdash, lackluster, obnoxiously negligent manner of the show, or perhaps just because of the sheer heroic volume of wanton on-air drinking by the cast. In year two, between the shameless sexual harassment of female callers by poorly impersonated versions of Sean Connery & Morgan Freeman, and attempts to get grown women to text sweet booby shots to our 15 year old Hungarian intern, we began to appreciate the likelihood that our defrocking would could come on the heels of possible criminal charges.
It is only now in the onset of our third year on the air that our shenanigans have really begun to hit their stride so to speak, perfecting the art of pushing the envelope of bad taste right to the razor thin borderline of obscenity and/or pornography and the outright corruption of a minor, without crossing over. Congratulations us. As promised the link below is part 2 of the 2 year anniversary episode featuring members of the Fist Fam & others. Thank you for supporting the foolish absurdities of a gang of reputed wise crackers and the questionable buffoonery of known punchinellos.
So as you can probably tell from my victory pose in the above cherished moment from the Gurpocalypse show, this winning shit feels pretty god damned good right now. It’s like being wrapped in a snuggie made out of titties that taste like birthday cake. Hosting Worst Case Scenario, the drunkest & surliest talk radio show on all of the internet was already quite a loftily dubious honor. But celebrating our two year anniversary as the #1 show on the station… priceless. Who would’ve thought that gathering a cadre of reprobates, misanthropes and repeat felons around a case of beer and a bottle of Jameson for the purposes of spirited on-air debate and libelous hate-speech would find a home in the hearts of so many?
On that note I have to thank all our listeners & supporters that have kept us on the air for way longer than I ever expected, and also to our bosses at ashevillefm.org & their sick sense of humor, for putting us on the air and risking possible legal action every week by leaving us there. Since the Anniversary episode aired a few weeks ago featuring guest appearances from former cast members & most of the Fist Fam, I have been receiving calls & messages from people demanding I re-post it somewhere. Apparently folks are quite fond of this one, so I chopped it into the three talk segments and between the weekly free music drops I will be posting the pieces here over the next week or so.
Anyway, click the link below & give a listen to part 1 of what some have been calling our funniest episode to date. And If you enjoy it spread the word, re-post etc. You can listen to Worst Case Scenario live every Thursday from 10pm-midnight (east coast time) on Ashevillefm.org. Each episodes archive is available to listen to all week on the WCS page of the station site.
