Destroy All Anti-Heroes

Houston punk vets Anarchitex still full of piss and vinegar.

Former enfant terrible Johnny Lydon might be no more than a suntanned facsimile of his former self, but these pasty men have not suffered the same mind-numbing fate. Though casual listeners may mistake the album for a series of bitter and demented harangues, or as a breeding ground for helter-skelter explosivity, a taut tunefulness exists in the defoliated landscape of the Anarchitex's songs, where paroxysm and prose go hand in hand.

Anger is still their inexhaustible ­energy. They wield it like a baton against the blunders of the world, with precision.

Anarchitex's three decades of flying under the radar may end with new LP Digital Dark Age.
