Ed Hall - Permission To Rock...Denied
It's been far too long since we've visited Austin, Texas circa the early 90's hasn't it? And it's definitely been too long since we've checked in with Ed Hall, the band dubbed the "heirs to the Butthole Surfers weird rock crown".
This collection of songs was their last, and was never officially released, but often bootlegged and shared amongst aficionados of unhinged, acid fried, noise punk. You like that kind of shit, right? Seems like you do, you dress like someone who would. I just figured that you did.
If it helps, you can tell your "cinema" friends (and aren't they just the worst?) that Ed Hall was hte band featured in the movie Slackers. People seem to love that movie (altough I find it tedious), so that could bridge the gap between a dirtbag like you, and a class act like them (or me).
