Wild Seeds, Ugly Beats

Wild Seeds, led by singer-songwriter-cum-music journalist Michael Hall, emerged at the forefront of the New Sincerity movement in 1984 with a roots rock sound bolstered by Hall’s angst-ridden, Lou Reed-inspired songwriting. Only Hall could have come up with a delightful skewering of stupid macho cock-rock with the perfect title, “I’m Sorry, I Can’t Rock You All Night Long.” This Friday night, we see them shudder back to life temporarily at the ABGB, accompanied in battle by the Ugly Beats, Austin’s long-running kings of Sixties-style garage rock. – Tim Stegall
