The Rock Garage Texas Live Concert Series Volume 1

"Hi y'all, we're the Smiths," opens Honky hesher J.D. Pinkus. "We're gonna play a bunch of new songs about not eating meat." Yuks lace themselves through 15 mostly local field recordings, including Nashville Pussy channeling Sam Kinison and the Ugly Beats' touch of Jello Biafra. A smidge of Dicks in Churchwood, Pure Luck's metalbilly ("Your Face or Mine"), and Satantonio splatter from the Hickoids into the Texas Sapphires' fiddling hayride ("The New World"). Raw. ***.5
