Hickoid Heaven

"Got a brand new way of livin'
Down here in Austin, Texas
Drink Budwiser every day
Show the girls our peckers
Don't need clocks for tellin' time
'Hillbillies' on at half past nine
Got a brand new way of livin'!"

The reunited Hickoids are playing at the Back Room tonight with Stevie Tombstone and Honky. Click here for a brief blurb I wrote about the show in this week's Chron.

The lyric above is from the Hickoids' 1989 song, "Brand New Way," which I truly believe should be enshrined by officialdom as the municipal anthem of our fair city. They should make schoolkids sing it right after pledging fealty to Texas and America.
