Texas Monthly: Three Chords and a Station Wagon

collage by Andi Beierman

Texas Monthly, by far the best regional publication of its kind, has a great feature by Michael Hall in its upcoming issue entitled "Three Chords and a Station Wagon," detailing the ups and downs of local 60s bands, including the Novas (Dallas), The Livin’ End (Abilene), Christopher & the Souls (McAllen), and the legendary Zakary Thaks (Corpus Christi).

You have to be a subscriber to read the story online, but it will be on the newsstands next week.


The Texas Monthly site also has a mini-documentary, "Texas Nuggets: The Secret History of Garage Rock in the Lone Star State."

For some appropriate musical accompaniment, tune in The Mal Thursday Show #23: Texas Tyme Machine, which features such blazin' Texan combos as the Wig (Austin), the 12 A.M. (San Antonio), the Reddlemen (Angleton), Mouse & the Traps (Tyler), as well as the aforementioned Zakary Thaks.
