dead horse Lives... After a Fashion

Turns out Nightfly’s recent experience at the White Swan in re a possibly reunited dead horse, Houston’s legendary death-metal smartasses whose twisted Texas artwork became as iconic as its brain-splattering songs, was true after all.

Minus horseman Michael Haaga – estranged from his former bandmates for some time due to the usual “artistic differences” – the remaining dead horse members have teamed with Kurt Brecht, singer for Houston-spawned Bay Area hardcore royalty D.R.I., to form the Krud Krudders, a new band that may or may not perform classic dead horse material.

Actually not a dead horse album cover, but should have been.

I don’t know what they’re doing,” says Meridian’s D’Neta Cavazos, where Krud Krudder makes its public debut Saturday night. “I know they have original music as well. They are planning to continue as a working band, don’t know if they’re keeping the name or not.”

Supporting are Houston’s Burn the Boat and Temple of Wrath, as well as Austin’s none-more-black Blood of Patriots. Starting noon tomorrow, several free passes to the show will be available at the Press’ front desk downtown at 1621 Milam, Suite 100. Conversely, if you’d like to be on the guest list, e-mail [email protected] before 4 p.m. Friday. – Chris Gray
