LAY DOWN YOUR SOUL PONY BOY


Three of my favorite bands in town right now are Sweat Lodge ,The Wolf and The Bad Lovers. If you like doom, doo-wop,psych and pop, they do it all and do it well. They are an incestuous lot, hailing from somewhere in North Texas and other parts unknown. They are comprised of Dallas Cowboy Cool Cody Lee, Caleb Dawson, Jimmy Wildcat, Alex Capistran, Alfie Bernal and " shock me, make me feel better" Austin Shockley.....
You can see The Wolf next Monday at The Grand with Flesh Lights BAD KIDS KRAMPUS CHRISTMAS BENEFIT

SO, LETS LOVE THEM!

UPCOMING FLESH LIGHTS/ NAW DUDE SPLIT ON 12XU

THANKS TO MR.GERARD COSLOY FOR DOIN ALL THAT HE DOES!!!!THANKS TO MAX, ELLISA, AND THE "TEEN "DREAM" JEREMY STEEN FOR KEEPING THE JAMS COMING! YOU CAN PICK IT UP RIGHT HERE! DONT FORGET TO GRAB A COPY OF THE NEW CRUDDY LP OR THE CASUAL VICTIM PILE II WHILE YOUR AT IT! FLESH LIGHTS PLAY THIS SUNDAY AT THE 29TH STREET BALLROOM IN AUSTIN, TX WITH THE BARRERACUDAS, THE DEAD SPACE AND THE BAD LOVERS BEFORE THEY HIT THE ROAD MONDAY. BALLROOM DISASTERS!!!!!
Two Austin bands with seemingly little in common dared each other to cover Freestone's KBD exploitation classic. The results are either deeply disrespectful (Naw Dude) or equally reverent (Flesh Lights), or perhaps it's the other way around. Two new Naw Dude originals (recorded by The Golden Boys' Bryan Schmitz) and one new Max Flesh Light classic are included. There's a download code for the originals - not for the cover, sorry. SHIPS ON OR BEFORE DECEMBER 12, 2011. First 100 on blue vinyl.

The Beat was founded by Paul Collins, who spent his pre-teens living in Greece, Vietnam and Europe before returning to his native New York. He studied at the prestigious Julliard Music School and eventually moved to San Francisco where he joined songwriter Jack Lee and bassist Peter Case to form The Nerves in 1974. The Nerves proved to be one of the pioneers of the burgeoning US punk rock scene, independently releasing their own 4 song EP which included the classic “Hanging on the Telephone,” later to become a hit for Blondie.After The Nerves disbanded in 1977, Collins moved to LA and formed The Beat with bassist Steve Huff, drummer Mike Ruiz and lead guitarist Larry Whitman. Their friend Eddie Money recommended The Beat for management by legendary concert promoter Bill Graham. Under new management, The Beat toured with The Police, The Jam and Joe Jackson. They also made numerous TV appearances and recorded their debut self-titled album with producer Bruce Botnick (who had produced The Doors). The album featured Beatles and Byrds-influenced guitars and catchy choruses, defining the skinny-tied power pop which The Knack took to the charts. In the ’90s, The Beat re-formed as Paul Collins’ Beat and continues to write and tour
