Spray Paint evolves classic ATX post punk
Music Story  February 21, 2014, by Chase Hoffberger
"...It steps off the fuzz pedals and finds a razor sharpness in clean tones. Guitarists Cory Plump and George Dishner thread those modulations through delay for something subtle and sunless, downplaying Dinos' affinity for blow-out-your-earholes recordings that battered fans in later years..."

Smoke Signals
Red River's live music venue owners fear Austin's newly proposed smoking ordinance – with good reason
Music Story  April 15, 2005, by Darcie Stevens

Couch Surfing
Music Story  October 19, 2007, by Audra Schroeder
"...One example was the recent Sheets of Easter Everywhere, a two-cassette covers collection (with four more to be released) of Oneida's trance-rock classic, "Sheets of Easter," including tracks by Jana Hunter, the Coke Dares, Excepter, and Oh, Beast!, among others. Now split between Austin and Chicago and run by Hodges, George Dishner, Cory Plump, and Nate Cross, who also make up most of the seven-member thrash behemoth When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth, they make music for breaking furniture instead of imitating it. Established: 2005 Kingpins: Jesse Hodges, George Dishner, Cory Plump, and Nate Cross Number of releases: 13 Notable releases: Tuxedo Killers, M..."

SXSW Interviews
They said what?
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...."

HAAM Day fills its coffers for uninsured live music capitalists
Music Column  September 18, 2014, by Kevin Curtin
"...Austin's underground mixed-media publisher, operated by Coy, Cory Plump, and Will Slack, expands its music catalog this month with a handful of releases, including two on their new avant-jazz offshoot Astral Spirits. They're also collaborating on a 3-D found footage horror flick, hosting a stage at Kentucky's Cropped Out fest, assembling a vinyl compilation of Austin bands, and probably prepping a dozen other projects..."

Spray Paint
Last Texas Platters of 2014
Music Review  December 23, 2014, by Chase Hoffberger
"...Third album Clean Blood, Regular Acid opens with the same sort of odd-tuned guitar discordance ("Wet Beer") that ricocheted endlessly from their two bookending 2013 LPs. This iteration, the first on co-frontman Cory Plump's day job – Austin's Monofonus Press – doesn't settle into any single sort of shakeup, ripping 11 songs that register under three minutes (including five that fail to break two), and an eight-minute closer ("Cory's Theme") that defy easy post-punk categorization while firmly resembling his, George Dishner, and Chris Stephenson's noise behemoth When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth..."

Playback: Teatro Negro
Reunions, fundraisers, performance videos – trying to rein in local music as 2012 draws to a close
Music Column  November 30, 2012, by Kevin Curtin
"...Recorded in a Mexican pesticide warehouse, follow-up LP Teatro Negro was shelved alongside label disinterest and Escalante's move. It might never have seen release if Cory Plump, a local musician who works with homegrown imprint Monofonus Press, hadn't heard talk about an orphaned XYX disc and contacted Escalante, who, to his surprise, was living in Austin..."

The Price You Pay
At what cost does the vinyl revolution come?
Music Story  January 10, 2014, by Luke Winkie
"..."Things take so much longer now," grouses Cory Plump, who helps run the day-to-day operations at Monofonus while also helping front electrifying post-punk trio Spray Paint. "Bigger labels are reprinting and slowing everything down..."

Spray Paint
Music Review  March 15, 2013, by Raoul Hernandez
"...When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth stomps a wild rumpus of double everything – guitars, bass, drums, and shriek. Satellite Austin trio Spray Paint not only strips back the Dinos' gargantuan clatter, guitarists/vocalists George Dishner and Cory Plump with drummer Chris Stephenson (also Dikes of Holland) nudge post-punk from its latter-day soft/loud axis to a more old-school minimum/maximum paradigm..."

"...Bearded Lady printer and When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth beard Cory Plump calls this new endeavor "basically Dinos Jr. We share three members." A three-track splat for this Sacramento, Calif., imprint, its perpetually compelling Dinosaur din opens herein with "Pro Knife," Talking Heads playing homemade instruments – detuned..."
