 Music,  Reviews 

The decades-long career of Pittsburgh’s Little Wretches comes into play in their new album Undesirables and Anarchists. Not very many bands can claim the longevity and binding lyrics like this band can – and the man behind the lyrics and at the helm is Robert Wagner. Ferocious with his guitar, the lyrical content on the 12-tracks balance the line between…

Undesirables and Anarchists seems like the perfect title for anything this year. It just happens to be the name of the new 12-track album from The Little Wretches, a Pittsburgh-based rock outfit. Slamming together guitar-driven licks and dream-big lyrics, these rockers should expect to glean many new comrades in their musical battle. From the swift “Someday” to the fists-clenched “I Rather Would Go”, there’s no stopping this…

You know that song NO EXPECTATIONS by The Rolling Stones on the BEGGARS BANQUET album?  
      "Our love is like our music  
       It's here  
       and then  
       It's gone." (Jagger / Richards) 

That's how I feel about these podcasts, these sit-in-front-of-a-laptop-and-play-to-a-mirror-image-of-yourself concerts. Like most people, I'm leery of the sound of my own voice. I want people to find…

The Little Wretches Release New Album 

August 29, 2020 by Jodi Marxbury 

The characters in The Little Wretches’ songs are so real, so close to the listener it’s like you can almost picture them crossing the train tracks. They’re putting out a smoke, chucking a pebble or looking up at the Pittsburgh sky trying to see the stars beyond the airplane lights. Robert Wagner, lyricist and lead singer for the misfit band that has been rocking The Steel…

The Little Wretches release “Undesirables and Anarchists” (LP) 

3 days ago MUSIC REVIEWS 

I’m not sure The Little Wretches find the specters of living in Pittsburgh to their dismay, or if it’s life in general that causes their angst? Either way, be it the hundreds of bridges that can lead them away from their city, or the dismal Pirates, The Little Wretches still find time to rock and extract some inspiration in their excellent…
