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..."

"...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..."

Music Review  July 29, 2005, by Raoul Hernandez
"...With last year's debut EP, Spiral Haircase, Tuxedo Killers pulled off a post-punk fission of Austin, 1985, minimalism and maximum freneticism warring to the donkey screams of George Dishner. "NYC Soap," "I'm So Funn!," and "Friendly Feud" kicked black and blue for 17 fan-"Tasticle" minutes..."

"...Their evolution into muscular grunge splendor began with guitarist Marc Voorhees bringing Plump, Hodges, and Daniel Francis Doyle together with counterparts Nate Cross (guitar), Brandon Crowe (drums), and George Dishner (singer/screamer). Neither jokey nor too serious, Dinos are just right...."

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..."

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..."

Ain't That Love
Live review of Scratch Acid “reenactment” at Emo's East
DAILY Music  December 12, 2011, by Raoul Hernandez
"...When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth, playing its biggest show, channeled any nerves it might have had into a 30-minute opening squall, the locals’ strum and drone, slash and drang, powered at times by four guitars, bass, and double drums, one of them manned by Craig Clouse of UK/USA noise showers Shit and Shine. Led by vocal exorcist George Dishner, the Dinos spiked rhythmic jags with stabbing riffs, the right angles clashing in a pummeling update of 1980s post-punk...."

When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth
Music Review  May 23, 2008, by Audra Schroeder
"...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. While not entirely tamed, WDRTE has found its core heaviness: the doom bass of opener "Toeing the Line," early 1990s grunt of highlight "Sick Legs," distortion blackout on "Hypnotic Locks," and instrumental tornado "Big Fuck Party." Vocalists George Dishner and Jesse Hodges have elbowed into a rhythmic odd couple of scream-talk, which helps focus the album, though they still wander in gibberish for a few songs..."

Music Story  January 12, 2007, by Audra Schroeder
"...It was like "We Are the World" for thrash fans. The screams of singer George Dishner, plus guests Devon and Dustin (Best Fwends/the Sneezes), were still bloodcurdling by the time they stumbled into closer "Bananafana," the best song off their debut, Snacks..."

When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth
Music Review  November 3, 2006, by Darcie Stevens
"...These aren't well-behaved boys. That becomes apparent as soon as George Dishner's percussive vox drives into "1-2-3 Pissmop." Where his volume ends, Jesse Hodges' creepy melody begins..."

Thirty Years on Location
An overview of the Texas Film Commission, which has been wedding film production and the state economy for 30 years.
Screens Story  June 15, 2001, by Marc Savlov
"...But virtually any film-industry professional who has worked with TFC seems willing to line up to testify to the importance of the commission's role in film production and in the state economy. "One of the things that strikes me about the TFC," says Dallas-based production manager Joe Dishner (Two for Texas, The Mothman Prophesies), " -- and this is with both 20 years of working with them and 20 years of working, also, outside of Texas -- is that the commission represents not just Austin but the entire state, and does it very, very well."..."

Screens Column  January 16, 1998, by Margaret Moser
"...The pom-poms don't usually come out for TNT made-for-TV films, and I'm not gonna shake them very hard for Two for Texas except to note that founding Chronicle co-publisher Joe Dishner was the unit production manager for the film (I tried to preview the film but, well... I couldn't match its testosterone charge.) Two for Texas premieres on TNT this Sunday (1/18, 7pm) and is billed as a "rousing, epic frontier adventure set in 1836, during the time of Sam Houston and the battle of the Alamo"; it stars Kris Kristofferson, Tom Skerritt, Scott Bairstow, and Peter Coyote (what? no Sam Elliot?)..."
