Live at the Fish Fry

Taxidermy from the Scoot Inn last May, this second installment of the lead-balloon-named Rock Garage Texas Live Concert Series rages a grease fire of raucous, mosh-tossed, old-school Austin punk, irreverent as Bill Hicks and twice as consumptive. Gunning "Flaccid Is the Night," complete with dueling guitar and bass breakdowns, and the Gary Floydisms of "One Blowjob" peak in a spastic go-go ("Go Saddam Hussein"), Howitzer recoil ("Amy Carter"), and crack ("Go Out Smoking"). ***
