The Hickoids - Waltz A Crossdress Texas

Label: Toxic Shock
Year: 1989

Cow punk with a heart of gold. The Stooges + Willie Nelson + a mariachi band + skunk weed + Dicks + the 200th viewing of Urban Cowboy = The Hickoids.
Flying the classic "Keep Austin Weird" flag before the bumper sticker, or "Slacker", dared. Taking everything in their record collections and making a loud mess that defies easy categorization, but sounds sort of like the inside cover of ZZ Top's "Tres Hombres" album must taste.
They reactivated and released a new record in 2013, but not real sure what happened after that.
