With Only 39 Years Left to Live, It's Time I Finally Got Around to Digitizing My Cassette & Vinyl Collection [Part 10]
The Texas Instruments - The Texas Instruments LP (Rabid Cat Records, 1987)
It's almost quaint to listen to the debut self-titled album by Austin's The Texas Instruments and remember how, for some of us, this hybrid of souped-up post-hardcore and politicized country punk was going to somehow eradicate all the backwards governing during the years of The Gipper. Now we have Michelle Bachman as a front runner for the 2012 election and the loonies are strategizing to run the asylum. Oh well. At least now I can upload this LP to my iPod and pretend it's making Zombie Reagan spin in his grave.
