A quick show as we're getting ready to hit the road for our East Coast tour. As always, we kill some songs and continue our new feature of rescuing underrated songs & albums.

 Episode 166: The Mighty Orq | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 57:50

At long last, this week we're joined by our old friend the Mighty Orq, brilliant guitar player, songwriter, and tremendously talented vocalist who has been all over the Houston music scene for decades. Blaggards have been honored to share the stage with Orq and his band many times in the past and it is an absolute thrill to finally have him on the show. We talk about Orq's influences, songwriting, how his latest live album came together, and what's coming up next for his band. Orq is also a brilliant photographer and did our latest promo shots, but we didn't get around to talking about that this time.

This week we're joined by Houston's hardest working bass player MARK RIDDELL, who recently completed his first solo album Corporeal Pilot. Patrick got his hands on an advance copy of Mark's CD and has been raving about it, as you will hear during the show. Mark has been a fixture in the Houston music scene for years, playing bass with countless acts on stage and in the studio, including the Mighty Orq, the Allen Oldies Band, Trish Cramblet, Katie Rushing, Sam Morrow, Leon III, Charlie & the Regrets, and Mike Stinson... just to name a few. We talk about songwriting, the state of today's so-called "country music" and the shape of the music industry in general... and of course, kill off a few songs.

 Episode 163: Don Hemorrhoid | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 17:34

This week we start off by "killing" a few songs we're sick of hearing, one being by a band that has since broken up… which leads us to speculate what might happen to our individual careers if Blaggards were to suddenly stop gigging.
