Lonesome Onry and Mean: The In and Outlaws
Head Hickoid and longtime Austin scenester Jeff Smith has forwarded some MP3s of San Antonio's In and Outlaws, whose upcoming album marks Smith's first foray into producing and engineering. Smith, owner of the Saustex and Sauspop record labels in San Antonio, has long been known for deconstructing country classics and turning them into full-on, hell-for-leather punk songs. (Their take on theGreen Acres
theme is legendary in the annals of Texas cowpunk.)
Smith's collaboration with In and Outlaws seems like a perfect match, as "Danger Danger," from the upcoming release, shows the In and Outlaws to be coming from that same patch of Capt. Kirk Twang-warp that has always propelled the Hickoids.
