    You might not want to make comments like that. I'm making a list.

    How's your quest for that free lunch going?

    The man in the golden shirt playing guitar in the Goo Goo Muck video is the fabulous hard-working Chicano, Kid Congo Powers.

    These guys are the real deal. I haven't seen them live, though they've come through Big D a number of times.

    I'm not trying to rain on your parade, but what's great about this group? Keeping in mind the
    poor quality of some of the recordings, I don't hear anything remarkable about them. Their
    riffs are ordinary, the vocals are unimaginative, the chord progressions formulaic, even the shock
    value of some of their lyrics is undistinguished.

    What exactly am I missing?

    The lead singer has a good voice and there's an overall cheerful high energy vibe. I'm not amazed but it's pleasant.

    Rockabilly genes.

    Next thing you'll be telling me you don't get the Ramones.

    Ha, maybe they'll do a gig at your asylum some time.

    There's a little part of you comes alive to The Cramps; unless it's atrophied.
