This is the fourth episode of the Kurlee and Franko podcast. This podcast is dedicted to the late great homie Kindred “Stinkweed” McCune. We tell some stories. Then we interview the legend that is Kalmex. He has played in many legendary Redwood City bands including Plutocracy, No Le$$, Kalmex and the Riffmerchants and Redacted. He shares some stories about himself and Stinkweed. Enjoy this podcast. We had fun making it.

Frank Ripple is the bassist in many bands from Nor Cal including, Kalmex and the Riffmerchants, Agents of Satan, Go Like This, Elephantman and Redacted. He joined forces with me to form a podcast.

This podcast mainly talks about beer and music. With many memories of ours back in the West Bay. And about our friends in such bands as Plutocracy, Spazz, Immortal Fate and more.

Please listen to the podcast and make an honest opinion. Remember this is the first of many podcasts we will be recording and sharing. We are using about $50 worth of equipment so far so if we get good at this stuff, we will be buying proper equipment.

First gig of Kalmex and The Riffmerchants live in 2000 at Kimo’s in SF with founding lineup of: Kalmex – kit, Frankie Ripples – Bass, Stinkweed – git, Shanko – git, Lactose – git

Redwood City influence. Peep the Plutocracy sticker on his Russian bike. So dope.

A 2001 demo of the song Switchblade by Kalmex And The Riffmerchants. This version features Stinkweed on guitar and vocals. The studio version is on the unreleased LP, Ultrasonic Holocaust, recorded in 2002, after Stinkweed’s departure from the band. Demo version recorded by TC Boneloc at the band’s rehearsal spot.

Words of one Ramon Salcido: “40 year olds driving in a van 11 hours to play grindcore for thirty people. That’s what we do.” O.G. Type Shit!!!! #RedwoodCity #650 #RIPStinkweed #DankDaddees
