When you think of Texas, what comes to mind? Big skies? Big trucks? Hot women with big… uh, well… big hair? Everything, as they say, is bigger in Texas… And that what ain’t bigger is more bizarre. After all, in a state that refers to itself as a republic… things can get pretty skewed.
Enter Honky. Honky proudly carries the torch held by the likes of Scratch Acid, Pantera, ZZ Top and the red-headed stranger himself, Mr. Willie Nelson.
This Austin Superboogie trio was founded in 1996 by long time Butthole Surfer bassist JD Pinkus,Bobby Ed Landgraf (Gahdzilla Motor Company, Blowfly) on guitar , and rounded out by Michael ‘Night Train’ Brueggen (Blackula, Syrup, Supagroup) on the drums.
Honky dishes out an appetite pleasin’… Superboogie servin’ that’ll keep ya’ comin’ back for more. Austin’s favorite sons have released some of the best lo-fi, hi-sleaze rock ever cut to wax, tape, or cd, and have toured with the likes of Nashville Pussy, the Reverend Horton Heat, Fu Manchu, Melvins, Karma to Burn, Down and David Allan Coe.
Honky’s newest release, 421, is another feast of down and dirty rock, rolling across the finish line late this summer. This one is more of a group effort than ever before, co-written and co-produced by Pinkus and Landgraf at Willie Nelson’s famed Pedernales studio and mixed by Butthole Surfer Paul Leary (U2, Meat Puppets, Sublime) with mastering duties being handled by Brian “BIG BASS” Gardner ( Micheal Jackson, NWA, Eminem, the Band, Alice Cooper). Available wherever fine Honky products are sold.
The band is currently on tour worldwide and would like to invite y’all out for a butt shakin’ good time.
