From the sounds of the name, you'd expect some guttural death metal, blast beat, pick squealing sounding band.

Rag Men played with this band in Austin in 2004, I believe. We never really played with bands outside the hardcore scene, so when they started setting up, I was interested in watching them since they were all older, grubby-looking, long haired dudes and if I remember correctly, a 3-piece.

Their live show was very tight and definitely entertaining. I remember watching them and thinking they sounded like a more punk version of The Melvins, Tad and Unsane. Listening to the CD, I hear hints of Helmet in the drumming and I still back the Melvins/Tad/Unsane musical reference.

I chatted with the singer for a bit after their set and he was kind enough to give me a shirt and this CD. It had no insert, just a CD with contact info, a website (that is no longer online) and the track listing. I tried digging up some info on them to no avail, but this is the contact info on the CD if anyone is interested in contacting them;

603 W. 13th 1A-416
Austin, TX 78701

Whether they're even a band, or not, anymore... I have no idea, but this is some good, original shit that shouldn't go unheard.
