For the 10th episode of Bad Roads, I am joined by my friend, musician J. Marinelli. J. originally hails from Morgantown, WV, but currently resides along the fjords of Trondheim, Norway. For the last 15+ years J. has regularly recorded and toured as a 1 person band, playing guitar, drums, and singing all at once. Prior to venturing out on his own, J. played in mid 90s cult indie/emo rockers Samuel (State College, PA/Washington DC) and Les Trois Malhueres (Washington DC). I can't say enough good things about J. as a human and as a musician. Be sure to check out his great new album, Laughing All the Way to the Fretex.All music beds, except for the intro music, in this episode come from the album Luck in the Valley by Jack Rose.Intro-The Messthetics-Better WingsThe Julie Ruin-Brightside Marinelli-This Is What We Talk About When We Talk Shit Johnston-Wild West Virginia (Excerpt)Segment: J.

For this episode of Bad Roads I talk with Pittsburgh musician Oyo Ellis. Oyo has been independent musician and producer in Pittsburgh since the mid 80s. While his music might be what he is best known for, Oyo is also now the head of The Battered Citizens Fund, a new nonprofit whose mission is to assist the under insured/uninsured injured during protests. We talk about Oyo’s new role with the nonprofit as well as his current band, Killer of Sheep. Along the way we hear music from some of Oyo’s musical projects over the years and a host of other music from Pittsburgh and beyond.The Battered Citizens Fund Donations: Battered Citizens Fund Information: Mentor-Guns of BrixtonThe Equals-Police on My BackBad Brains-The Big TakeoverLeeway-Rise and Fall (Excerpt)Segment: Oyo EllisOyo's Bands:Battered Citizens-No Way OutTon a Bricks-Triflin AssTon a Bricks-CallousKiller of Sheep-Pawns Oyo EllisLiving World-Ubuntu JusticeUniform Choice-Screaming For Change Krimewatch-N/A Flag-Slip It In (Excerpt)Death-Politicians in My EyesMC5-American RuseRichard Pryor-N*****s Vs PoliceThin White Line-Thrilling CitiesDerketa-Troops of Doom Death-Unchallenged HateDisrupt-EqualiseCliterati-Hard Times Clash-Know Your RightsHugh Mundell-Let’s All UniteOyo Ellis-Too High!!!Support the show (
