Drenched In Blog: Attention Denim Demons and Princes of The Rodeo
Well, I couldn’t very well let today’s blog go in without mentioning Turbonegro. You see, today they releaseRetox
, their first set of new material since 2005’sParty Animals
. The band describes their new record as a "nihilistic homo-punk-metal biker movie: full of speed, power, humiliation and freedom!"
If I can’t bring Houston that very spirit on this blog, I quit.
