Snail’s-pace rap everyone knows, but one of Houston’s other great musical gifts is the snide, sultry punk rock of groups like Fatal Flying Guilloteens, Weird Party, Snooty Garbagemen and Secret Prostitutes, among others. Incredibly, a handful of alumni from all of the above have been making music together under the name Poizon for nearly two years, though drummer Josh Wolf’s move to New Orleans circumscribed their plans for a spell; he’s much closer at hand in Austin nowadays. Recorded in late 2015 and early 2016, Poizon’s debut, Church is Poizon, is at last out this month on Austin’s Twistworthy Records. Available on vinyl and MP3 via Bandcamp, the ten-song LP strikes a not-so-delicate balance between primo garage clatter and primal post-punk howling, spiking tracks like “Bayou Waterbed,” “Cool Mom” and “Mouthy” with more than enough acid wit and randy riffs to subvert your next genteel gathering into salacious police-blotter fodder.
