The Hickoids – Hairy Chafin’ Ape Suit (2013)

This long-promised long player from the Hickoids has taken on a kind of mythical quality over the last quarter century or so. Hairy Chafin’ Ape Suit delivers on every broken promise

Churchwood – 2 (2013)

A tasty mixture of greasy blues rock, deranged intellect and mudhole-stomping Texas attitude, Churchwood once again illustrates what a post-punk Skip James might have sounded like had he gotten into the lysergic weirdness of 13th Floor Elevators.

The Austin, Texas-based Hickoids, a shambling, couldn’t-give-a-sh–t group of cowpunk nutjobs, cover their share of oddball Anglophile items on the new Kicking It With the Twits, out on Saustex Media in San Antonio. There’s the Stones (“Have You Seen Your Mother …”). Eno (“Needles in the Camel’s Eye”). The Move (“Brontosaurus”). Mott the Hoople (“Whizz Kid”). The Who (“Pictures ofRead More
