With considerable respect due to the likes of Los Llamarada, Tyvek, Pink Reason, Fucked Up, the Distant Seconds and, uh, Darryl Hall, Bruno and his hired hand Homosexuals (version ’08) were one of the highlights of last week’s SXSW smorgasbord. Though I missed their WFMU show on Friday (probably while blogging about a panel about blogging : hey, they had free bottles of Fuze), Saturday’s set at truth-in-advertising-violation-zone The Beauty Bar was nothing short of revelatory. Any chance Smeg Pole might recruit an American trio half his age for next year’s festival?
