Giving up the Swan
Randall Stockton prepares to transfer his 12th street lounge
DAILY Music  June 14, 2014, by Kevin Curtin
"...Stockton cites June 2013’s final performance from notorious slacker punks the Chumps, who packed the bar to the rafters and delivered a legendarily rowdy show, as the greatest moment of his tenure. In recent months, he heralds Tuesdays’ Ortiz Bros' Blues Condition Blues Jam, featuring Amplified Heat rock savants Jim and Chris Ortiz, and often Jamey Simms..."

Chumps say, 'So long, sucker,' while Trent Reznor says hello to Explosions in the sky.
Music Column  June 14, 2013, by Kevin Curtin
"...So declares the warped wails of Sean McGowan on the Chumps' titular tune, which, along with other lovably deranged mini-anthems like "Mopac Rapist," "I Got a Problem," and "Fuck You, I'm Rich," helped cement the Chumps among the most memorable and longest-lasting bands born in Austin's Nineties punk scene...."

Film Review  April 25, 2014, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Stack demonstrates that the sisterhood of the betrayed can be more fun and effective than nursing one’s wounds in solitude. Still, the film’s demonstration of female empowerment (cue “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”) also serves to show women as conniving, vengeful chumps who remain obsessed with the man in their lives (cue the Mission: Impossible theme music)..."

The Luv Doc: Whoopsy!
You’re not the nearly flawless person you believe other people think you are
Columns  July 18, 2014, by The Luv Doc
"...I’m not saying Gchat is for total chumps (I mean, we already have Facebook Messenger for them, AMIRITE?), I’m just saying that it shouldn’t be used for anything other than sending idiotic emojis and links to videos featuring adorable pets. If you’re not passing on a link to a Chihuahua dancing the merengue or a kitten climbing up a hipster’s skinny jeans, stay the fuck off that shit or you’ll end up in Gitmo with a pair of jumper cables clamped on your testicles...."

The TCBender Is Gathering Steam
DAILY News  February 9, 2007, by Christopher Gray

Some welcome the new offspring, and some don't, but the high-speed newcomer is at the starting gate
News Story  November 16, 2012, by Richard Whittaker

South by Southwest 1997
Music Story  March 21, 1997
"...It looked about as safe as going over Niagara Falls in a trash can, and Wallace's expression confirmed that sentiment. Then Sean McGowan (the Chumps) came out dressed as Satan, kicked the barstool out from underneath Wallace, and began pulling him up and down while a bodybuilder flexed his muscles..."

The Luv Doc: A Fraud and a Charlatan
I can’t even write you a prescription, although I am probably willing to enjoy yours on a recreational basis
Columns  March 14, 2014, by The Luv Doc
"...Does it matter that the genesis of those ideas is authentic? Does the New Testament lose all relevance and worth if Jesus didn’t actually exist? Here’s my questionable advice: Some people get so obsessed with authenticity they fail to see the truth. Those people are the real chumps Jorge George..."

Mott's Workers Make a Stand; and It's Raining Overdraft Fees
News Column  September 10, 2010, by Jim Hightower
"...Who'll take a stand for America's founding ethic of the common good? You won't get such leadership from Washington – and damned sure not from those in the corporate suites who are ruthlessly pushing an ethic of uncommon greed, saying to the middle class, "Adios, chumps."..."

Asylum Street Spankers' last laugh
Music Column  April 22, 2011, by Austin Powell
"...Drummer Pat Doyle originally put together Died in Custody, a tribute to local hardcore bruisers the Offenders, in hopes that ailing guitarist Tony Johnson would be healthy enough to play a few songs. Instead the benefit at Emo's on Friday, featuring the Chumps, Hickoids, and Rogers Porn Collection, among others, will be filmed for Johnson, who's recovering from a bout of pneumonia and battling stage 3 lung cancer..."

In search of the light at the end of the Waller Creek Tunnel Project
Music Column  May 7, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...The Bulemics tore the fan from the ceiling, Lower Class Brats trampled the Big Boys' "Fun Fun Fun," and Fuckemos sucked the entire capacity audience into the maelstrom of its Drano-noise rock. Trail of Dead's Jason Reece and Conrad Keely closed the night with a zip-line intensity not seen in at least a decade, while the Chumps proved anything but with mid-1990s garage-rock anthems "Fuck You, I'm Rich" and "I'm a Chump." "They're actually a lot better and tighter as a live band now," cheered Super Secret Records' head Richard Lynn..."

"..."I love the old school stuff from the 1950s, but I also love hearing bands in different genres from all eras." His latest scorcher with the Lowlifes, Reform School Girl, may be his finest work to date (see "Texas Platters"), but he's been forced to lay low for the next two months while undergoing treatment for cancer of the tongue. The exception is a benefit in his honor at Emo's Thursday, March 4, with Lower Class Brats, Krum Bums, the Chumps, and his Flash Boys..."
