Got it. + add. album.
The Out Of Towners is the final recording by the Texas cowpunk band the Hickoids featuring late Austin guitarist and punk legend Davy Jones (1954 - 2015). Jones played every major and minor venue in the city from the late '70s until cancer sidelined him in 2014 and was inducted to the Austin Music Hall of Fame three different times. The mini-album is a collection of covers written by Texas artists including Willie Nelson, Roky Erickson, Terry Allen and Doug Sahm, and showcases Davy’s rough and tumble, off-the-wall guitar stylings and captures the Hickoids ramshackle charm
The longtime Hickoids guitarist, who died of lung cancer in 2015, was already struggling with the illness when these tracks were cut. While it's impossible to hear Jones and company reimagine this eclectic six-pack of quintessential Texas songs without recalling the poignant setting of their creation, The Out of Towners also makes at least as much stylistic sense as the Hickoids' 2011 Brit-rock cover romp, Kicking It With the Twits. The EP's strongest suit lies in reconciling Willie Nelson's "Night Life" and Terry Allen's "I Just Left Myself Today" with a rage bomb like the Dicks' "Dead in a Motel Room. A six-minute immolation of Doug Sahm's "At the Crossroads" makes an appropriate fin de siècle for one of Austin's most irrepressible musical characters.
Album · 2016 · 6 Songs. Kicking It With the Twits.
The mini-album The Out of Towners features half a dozen takes on songs by Willie Nelson, Roky Erickson, The Dicks, Terry Allen, Rich Minus and Doug Sahm. It’s also, sadly, the last record that Davy Jones (The Dicks, The Hickoids) played guitar on before dying of cancer. In true Hickoids fashion, the songs here manage to be both beautiful and at times messy (not that you’d want it any other way). While all of these songs are keepers, the group’s raucous take on Nelson’s Night Life and the organ-drenched slow burn on Cans are particularly impressive.
