On July 19th Eric Davidson is going to come on the PDR show on Real Punk Radio to talk about his new book (that everyone already knows aboot), We Never Learn: The Gunk Punk Undergut 1988-2001, and I am going to guest co-host it - along with the regular cast.

Course now I don't really give a fuck. And so far it's a fucking great read.

"The more I take it in , admitedly second hand , I wish they'd lose the Hendrix covers and try a little harder not to sound like ZZ Top , though it's exciting this is happening at all.
As far as other Texas Garage bands that tried again ,…"
