"...Austin post-punk trio Spray Paint also descends from dinosaurs, literally. Its three members spun out of When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth, the local noise-rock double everything that once broke Beerland on a bimonthly basis..."
"...This past school year alone, I've been: Boy George (long-sleeved, Eighties-esque polka-dot shirt; green tie; torn, colored fabric strips braided into the end of my hair; a top hat; and the moment of truth: the make-up); Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas (braids, a dress I designed, covered in muted and pastel patches, white hose with hand-drawn stitches, black & white gathered stripy knee socks, and black high heels. I painted my exposed skin white and drew stitches with liquid eyeliner); Rosie the Riveter/Betty Crocker/Lucille Ball-type person (crisp black eyeliner and mascara and red lipstick, a spit curl, a navy blue bandana -- like Axl Rose's, but turned around so that the knot's facing the front); Cyndi Lauper (reversible Converse, fishnets, red petticoat, tulle over-skirt, fuchsia bodice, three different belts, tons of jewelry, my wide Mohawk dyed -- sides neon yellow and the middle orange -- and flipped over to one side, lots of hair spray, bright and colorful make-up); Robert Smith from the Cure and Siouxsie Sioux from Siouxsie & the Banshees (most of the clothes I have look like something they would wear) numerous times...."
"...But all that changed during SXSW in 2011, when the tired property known historically as "the Foundation" got a facelift. Thanks to a driven, former advertising pro named Andi Scull Cheatham and the help of some of her artist friends, the trash- and crap-littered lot morphed into the gloriously colorful, wonderfully chaotic HOPE Outdoor Gallery (aka the HOG), a privately owned, three-story community art project-turned-paint park that's been igniting lots of joy in lots of people – locals and tourists alike – ever since...."
"...Plump's awaiting pressings of a new LP by Spray Paint, a nervous-sounding minimalist punk trio for whom he plays guitar and sings (revisit "Urgent," Feb. 21)..."
"...9) Spray Paint, Spray Paint (S.S. Records)..."
"...Jardine suggested April 15 to "begin building," I didn't think I had much to "build," other than lay carpet and install a laser machine somewhere. Meanwhile, I found a beaten lawn chair frame at an estate sale – $5! Perfect! – and bought some gold spray paint at Hobby Lobby..."
"...That overused term undermines the reality that most new local acts enter the scene already carrying a substantial pedigree. Plax’s Venn diagram touches important homegrown bands: OBN IIIs, Spray Paint, Skeleton, and Crooked Bangs to name several...."
"...Spray PaintClean Blood, Regular Acid (Monofonus Press)..."
"...Those looking for locals will find Transmission has stocked its Fest with acts that satisfy just as many genres, notably 20-year-old ska punk institution the Impossibles – reunited to some degree in 2012 – Daniel Johnston, recent Chronicle cover boy David Wingo via his group Ola Podrida, Frank Smith, Wild Child, rapper Kydd Jones and his LNS Crew, DJ Roger Sellers, and post-punk threepiece Spray Paint...."
"...Fellow protester and anarchist Pavel Jasek agreed: "Look at what we have accomplished! It all shows that a few young idealists, armed with hundreds of cans of spray paint and some rocks, can truly change the world for the better." Taking a drag from his Marlboro Light cigarette, he dismissed claims that the aerosol in paint is bad for the environment. "Yes, perhaps there is some damage, and the architecture of Prague may be somewhat damaged now, but please, just think of the hungry children worldwide whose lives we've saved."..."

"...If you've been in the Austin area for long, you've seen their subjects: limestone ledges lining a stream, a shimmery Barton Creek babbling over large, jagged boulders. The paintings are like windows that look out onto tranquil rural settings, except not all the works are totally rural..."
"...Third Man Records has released a live 7-inch by Austin's Spray Paint. The record includes four live tracks by the feral art-punk trio, captured last August in TMR's Blue Room, a venue inside Jack White's Nashville headquarters where music is tracked direct to acetate...."
"...Spray Paint's Performance at Hotel Vegas tonight, Thursday, will be the band's last local show for the foreseeable future. Guitarist/vocalist Cory Plump, co-founder of vinyl and multimedia purveyors Monofonus Press, is moving to Mexico..."

"...The latest edition of the paper’s SXSWfm frequency debuts a couple tracks from locals releasing new music three weeks from tomorrow during Record Store Day, then dives into a jam-packed Saturday of show recommendations (Spray Paint, the Bulemics)...."
"..."I loathe art that's not true," Evelyn, the MFA student, tells the undergrad Adam in the museum where he works as a security guard. She's just crossed the ropes around a sculpture of a nude intending to spray paint over an obstruction on its genitalia, like some art terrorist..."
"..."Looks like the tin man," chuckles the cop as he points to the ring of silver spray paint around Ruth's (Dern) nose and mouth and tries to rouse her from her inhalant-induced stupor. Ruth is an utter mess, a real fuckup; with her kids taken away from her, she finds herself pregnant again and in court for inhalant abuse..."
"...Craft culture has always struck me as a double-edged paper cutter, even before the Supreme Court started handing gold stars to those who believe women exist solely to buy puffy paint and breed. If anything, the Hobby Lobby ruling underscored the ancient connection between craft culture and keepin' the womenfolk at home, their hands safely occupied above the belt..."
