Furniture Records refinishes an Oneida classic.
DAILY Music  February 23, 2007, by Audra Schroeder
"...Everyone knows we'll all soon have iPods the size of contact lenses. Furniture Records, the Austin/Chicago bastion of loud, lewd, and totally crude (and whose revolving-door band policy has birthed Tuxedo Killers, Daniel Francis Doyle, Awesome Cool Dudes, and When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth, among others), has started a singles club which entails you listen to and appreciate a cassette..."

Furniture Records
Couch Surfing
Music Story  October 19, 2007, by Audra Schroeder
"...From its first release in 2005, a vinyl single by the now-defunct Tuxedo Killers, Furniture Records has catered to Austin's hairy, sweaty underbelly. Hodges admits that, like most small labels, this one grew out of a need "to release our bands' stuff." Indeed, early "stuff" by the Awesome Cool Dudes and Daniel Francis Doyle came from within the label's inner circle, but the Furniture sound has recently expanded out of Texas...."

Spray Paint evolves classic ATX post punk
Music Story  February 21, 2014, by Chase Hoffberger
"...Consider, too, that the Dinos covered Scratch Acid ("Greatest Gift"), not to mention their frantic, David Yow-derived screams. Dishner, a banshee since his days in corrosive funsters the Tuxedo Killers, follows through today with "Making Water" and "False Cowboys." And note the half-sung gang vocals à la Gibby Haynes and his fellow Surfers, who Plump idolized growing up in Indiana, where he founded ATX immigrants Awesome Cool Dudes...."

Music Story  March 9, 2007
"...Habana Calle 6 Patio, 1:10am Meet Austin pop/metal/noise smackdown When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth, seven dudes with big ideas played two by two: two drum kits, two guitars, two singers, plus loner Cory Plump on bass. Mathematically, it's the tongue-in-cheek Awesome Cool Dudes plus spastic Tuxedo Killers plus mind-boggling Dakota Building plus indefinable Oh, Beast! Good God...."

When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth
Music Review  May 23, 2008, by Audra Schroeder
"...Not nice or not noise? When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth's sophomore LP is a tomato-tamato affair. The local sevenpiece beast, featuring members of Awesome Cool Dudes; Oh, Beast!; and the late Tuxedo Killers, subscribes to the power of two – on drums, vocals, and guitar – which informed the hot skate-thrash of 2006 debut LP Snacks..."

Wednesday Picks
Music Story  March 7, 2008
"...With two drummers, two guitars, two singers, and a bass, Dinos ripped through the tasty Snacks (Emperor Jones) last year, but they switch from metal to grunge live. Part Awesome Cool Dudes and part Tuxedo Killers, Dinos provide sophomore LP Not Noiice this spring for further investigation..."

Want a New Drug?
DAILY Music  October 30, 2007, by Audra Schroeder
"...Despite his clean cut, all-American image, you have to imagine Huey Lewis definitely indulged in the truckloads of drugs the Eighties had to offer. I mean, c'mon, "Hip to Be Square"? With that in mind, members of Oh, Beast! and Awesome Cool Dudes have joined forces as the New Drugs, a Huey Lewis & the News cover band fronted by the Chronicle's own unflappable Greg Beets..."

"...I'm in love with the bizarre nights surrounded by the circus stylings of the Carousel Lounge, eating mole enchiladas while watching Cornell Hurd play Texas swing at Jovita's, sipping martinis while listening to every kind of good jazz at the Elephant Room, watching the sun go down from the garden at Cafe Mundi, and dancing myself sweaty at the sweet hole that is Trophy's. And I believe that Slim Richey and Awesome Cool Dudes are blessings to our fair town..."
