"...Friday: The Chumps’ final show, the Legendary White Swan..."
"...Last night, three of the Confederate statues on campus were spray-painted with “Black Lives Matter” and “Bump All the Chumps” (referring to one of RotMan’s slogans calling to remove the Davis statue). The student government denounced the vandalism, urging students and supporters to work through the administration and student government...."
"...Stockton cites June 2013’s final performance from notorious slacker punks the Chumps, who packed the bar to the rafters and delivered a legendarily rowdy show, as the greatest moment of his tenure. In recent months, he heralds Tuesdays’ Ortiz Bros' Blues Condition Blues Jam, featuring Amplified Heat rock savants Jim and Chris Ortiz, and often Jamey Simms..."
"...So declares the warped wails of Sean McGowan on the Chumps' titular tune, which, along with other lovably deranged mini-anthems like "Mopac Rapist," "I Got a Problem," and "Fuck You, I'm Rich," helped cement the Chumps among the most memorable and longest-lasting bands born in Austin's Nineties punk scene...."
"...Stack demonstrates that the sisterhood of the betrayed can be more fun and effective than nursing one’s wounds in solitude. Still, the film’s demonstration of female empowerment (cue “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”) also serves to show women as conniving, vengeful chumps who remain obsessed with the man in their lives (cue the Mission: Impossible theme music)..."
"...I’m not saying Gchat is for total chumps (I mean, we already have Facebook Messenger for them, AMIRITE?), I’m just saying that it shouldn’t be used for anything other than sending idiotic emojis and links to videos featuring adorable pets. If you’re not passing on a link to a Chihuahua dancing the merengue or a kitten climbing up a hipster’s skinny jeans, stay the fuck off that shit or you’ll end up in Gitmo with a pair of jumper cables clamped on your testicles...."
"...Tonight it only gets worse with Vietnam - and a family-size bottle of 44D with TCB's name on it - and the Hickoids. Saturday is the Chumps, Pong, and the Black Angels..."
"...That night, three of the Confederate statues on campus were spray-painted with "Black Lives Matter" and "Bump All the Chumps" (referring to one of the slogans calling to remove the Davis statue). The student government denounced the vandalism, urging students and supporters to work through the administration and student government...."
"...No doubt Circuit management wants the first year at its $300 million track to be a success. And the city administration doesn't want to be left looking like chumps who can't handle a major event...."
"...It looked about as safe as going over Niagara Falls in a trash can, and Wallace's expression confirmed that sentiment. Then Sean McGowan (the Chumps) came out dressed as Satan, kicked the barstool out from underneath Wallace, and began pulling him up and down while a bodybuilder flexed his muscles..."
"...Does it matter that the genesis of those ideas is authentic? Does the New Testament lose all relevance and worth if Jesus didn’t actually exist? Here’s my questionable advice: Some people get so obsessed with authenticity they fail to see the truth. Those people are the real chumps Jorge George..."
"...Heya, chumps, come meet the Austin Wranglers at the Dog and Duck Pub (406 W. 17th St.) tonight from 7:30-9pm..."
"...Maybe you should instead ask yourself why you don't have access to Google. Whatevs, Google is for chumps anyway..."
"...Who'll take a stand for America's founding ethic of the common good? You won't get such leadership from Washington – and damned sure not from those in the corporate suites who are ruthlessly pushing an ethic of uncommon greed, saying to the middle class, "Adios, chumps."..."
"...There are some 22,000 store employees who'll lose their jobs as a result of the mess that Jim and his fellow directors made of the company, and they've been told that they'll get no severance pay and no benefits. Thanks for your loyalty and hard work -- adios, chumps...."
"...Drummer Pat Doyle originally put together Died in Custody, a tribute to local hardcore bruisers the Offenders, in hopes that ailing guitarist Tony Johnson would be healthy enough to play a few songs. Instead the benefit at Emo's on Friday, featuring the Chumps, Hickoids, and Rogers Porn Collection, among others, will be filmed for Johnson, who's recovering from a bout of pneumonia and battling stage 3 lung cancer..."
"...The Chumps (May 2008)..."
"...The Bulemics tore the fan from the ceiling, Lower Class Brats trampled the Big Boys' "Fun Fun Fun," and Fuckemos sucked the entire capacity audience into the maelstrom of its Drano-noise rock. Trail of Dead's Jason Reece and Conrad Keely closed the night with a zip-line intensity not seen in at least a decade, while the Chumps proved anything but with mid-1990s garage-rock anthems "Fuck You, I'm Rich" and "I'm a Chump." "They're actually a lot better and tighter as a live band now," cheered Super Secret Records' head Richard Lynn..."
"..."I love the old school stuff from the 1950s, but I also love hearing bands in different genres from all eras." His latest scorcher with the Lowlifes, Reform School Girl, may be his finest work to date (see "Texas Platters"), but he's been forced to lay low for the next two months while undergoing treatment for cancer of the tongue. The exception is a benefit in his honor at Emo's Thursday, March 4, with Lower Class Brats, Krum Bums, the Chumps, and his Flash Boys..."
