Spray Paint, Screensaver (Austin), Michael C. Sharp

Since drummer Chris Stephenson moved to Melbourne in 2017, Austin post-punks Spray Paint performed all of five shows, estimates lone local member George Dishner. “5ish,” texts the film production veteran. Co-frontman Cory Plump lives in NYC, where he runs venue/bar Tubby’s. The homegrown trio harks back to the progressive weirdness of Butthole Surfers with an abrasive unconventionality reminiscent of the Fall. How’s that look a decade later for Dishner? “It’s slowed quite a bit,” admits the singer-guitarist once locally infamous for performing in his briefs and a donkey mask. Boasting a dozen LPs, EPs, cassettes, live albums, Spray Paint worked on new material pandemically. Set list for these two shows? Dry as Texas summer, Dishner offers, “It’s gonna be all Spray Paint songs.” – Raoul Hernandez
