The Golden Boys

Imagine, in the event that you can, a trim and mean Pogues raised not over the Dubliners and Tommy Makem, but instead the 13th Flooring Elevators and Doug Sahm, and you’re proceeding straight down the Golden Children’ dusty street. Produced in the middle-2000s, the Austin-based ensemble has a oily beer-battered type of root base punk that advantages from lots of dosages of strychnine in the deep fryer. Their albums — they’ve released four full-lengths by 2010 — provide a deranged mixture of psychedelic choogle, tail feather-shakin’ R&B, twisted country-folk, and sloppy rock and roll & move. The Golden Kids’ stellar 2009 full-length, Thee Electric powered Wolfman, featured the help of kindred spirits the Spider Luggage, Oakland-via-Texas psych maven Greg Ashley, and Memphis’ inimitable Ross Johnson, amongst others. Vocalist/guitarist John Wesley Coleman III also released his debut single album, Grab My Mind, in ’09 2009, while this year 2010 the music group appeared over the Austin picture sampler Casual Sufferer Pile, published by Matador creator Gerard Cosloy.
