New Zealand psychobilly CD. Not quite Sparky-level vocals, but solid. And, as far as I know, less wastes of space than Sparky. Self-released on October 21st, 2011...

This should need nothing said, but in the event someone doesn't have their Texan card handy, it is country. I can't find a copy of the label for it. Lost Highway catalog number B0015657-01. August 29th, 2011...

The revocation of my Texas card has probably already occurred based on my not having lived there for almost two decades now, but I never got Robert Earl Keen.  As Aggie country songwriters who lived together on campus go, Lyle Lovett kicks his ass, IMO ...

2 things on #11.

 

Drew Coleman was a BALLER for us and had a nice NFL career. Wasn't much bigger than 5'8" 180 lbs either.

 

As amazing as AD14 was/ is for us. I always wonder where we would have been with Marcus Jackson. I think he was similarly as talented as Andy. Wonder what he is up to these days.

 

Just looked. Drew is now a Defensive coach at Rice. Cool.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

No, you know that it is country, so the card is still safe. Liking one (or disliking), the other, or both is personal taste, but ignorance to either of them and the type of music is a bad Texan move.

 

I haven't met either of them, so I don't know for certain, but I assume the Aggie rule applies. They are probably both nice one on one, but I would expect wooping and other typical Aggie nonsense when they are together. And I know the 'Front Porch Song' couldn't exist with out both of them, but am thrilled I wasn't there when it was written.

I made this reference recently in a discussion about him and how, given his injury issues, he might just hang it up and get his degree.

Folk death rock? Not sure how to call it other than that, but it is great. Bluesy, folky rock from Louisiana. Former vocalist of Acid Bath, and he sounds much better when he sings on his solo stuff than when he screamed in the previous band. Released only on CD on August 3rd, 2010...

R-2399033-1513971954-1544.jpeg.jpg

 

Denison based modern heavy metal (or as I call it, rock). Contains a remastering of their breakout song, 'Pissed Off and Mad About It'. Released on CD on July 6th, 2010...

R-4994917-1381636092-6838.jpeg.jpg

 

Their best CD, in my opinion...

R-3107227-1316097459.jpeg.jpg

 

Southern/stoner rock. Catchy. CD released on June 1st, 2010...

In 1910, the Boston Talking Machine Company established a subsidiary that vertically cut records. The newly formed company was the Phono-Cut Record Company. By cutting the records vertically instead of laterally, it allowed circumventing the patents held by Victor and Columbia. This paved the way for many other labels to get into the business before the lateral cut patents expired in 1921. They were a financial flop and sold off by 1913. From 1911...
