The Buck Pets: Big D-lightful


My eyes literally left their sockets yesterday when checking my last.fm profile. I had been doing a bit of musical time travel (The Buck Pets--->The Who--->Sidewinders (aka Sand Rubies)--->House of Freaks--->The Chesterfield Kings--->The Ophelias--->The Soup Dragons--->The LeRoi Brothers--->The LeRoi Brothers) and checked to see if the songs had scrobbled. Well, not only had they scrobbled, but I saw that Dallas band The Buck Pets' "A Little Murder" was available as a free last.fm download, along with twelve other of their songs. (Cue ocular ejection.) I had bought their eponymous LP back when it came out and had seen them open for the Ramones at the Back Room in Austin back in November 1988. (See a nice description of the concert here, nice because I didn't write it.) So here are two of my favorites off that album. You can take it from there. (Incidentally, future Indie star Britt Daniel was standing right beside me during the concert. He seemed to be enjoying them, too.)

Your eyes literally left their sockets? Are you sure about that?
