The scene that Houston's Fatal Flying Guilloteens came up in in the early '00s was a sight different from the one in the here and now. Guys like Robert Ellis, the Buxton and Wild Moccasins boys and girls, and Fat Tony weren't roaming the city and now the Earth touring. There were fewer venues in town, the Internet wasn't the Beast it is now and things were more feral in these parts.
The Guilloteens are reuniting for a 7 p.m. slot Saturday at Free Press Summer Fest. When the lineup was announced a few months back, their name elicited more excitement than even seeing Snoop Dogg's. At least for me. That seemed like more of a coup.
Over two albums, 2001's Now Hustle for New Diaboliks 2003's Get Knifed, and 2007's Quantum Fucking, the FFG would leave not a mark but a crazy stab wound you need 20 million stitches to close. It was delicious.
