Yes, yes I am cool.  The fact that I inspired a podcast episode, and for such a good cause (little-known/cut-short wrock bands), makes me so proud and happy. Thanks, guys.  And if you think you know who I am, you probably do. I’m just not that sneaky.  Props for MC Kreacher, and… okay, the whole setlist is great.  Way to give some love to the little guys.  Keep it up, yo!

Now here is a seriously good set of wrock. Not to mention the fact that I love both the Wrocksnob and the Witching Hour podcast.

(The collab channel is a great idea, guys. Go for it!)

Also, thank you to my new followers; feel free to submit some of your favourite wrock songs, with/without a few sentences about them.

Thanks for the shout-out!

We’ll be back on air in January and we’re always looking for new episode ideas, so if you have any, definitely send us an owl on tumblr, at, or twitter @twhtweetmachine!
