Drenched In Blog: Beating Dead Horse
All the recent talk about the “Houston 100” reminded me of dead horse, Michael Haaga’s old thrash band. My first memory of this band is being at McDonald’s when I was eight. A group of crusty metal dudes in dead horse shirts and cutoff blue-jean shorts came in smoking cigarettes, and proceeded to terrorize little kids in the playground area like a suburban gang of stoned Droogies. That was when I first realized that metal frightened me, and that I also loved metal. Their cover of “Rock Lobster” is a sound to behold; it’s on their MySpace page.
