Roosters crow, cows moo, and keyboards pop along on a “corny” new track from a so-called “Iowa farmer” …
It was during a beer ’n’ burger lunch at A.C.’s Bar & Grill two weeks ago that we discovered Tex!, the electro-dance project of longtime Charleston musician Paolo Licciardi. Bartender Kevin Young and City Paper columnist/radio personality Jack Hunter were nearby, talking about Hunter’s band Dante’s Camaro’s upcoming show on Fri. May 8 at the Tin Roof and Licciardi’s spot on the bill as the opening act.
We ran a review of the new single in last week’s issue, but we didn’t have a proper copy of it on hand to sample for the web page (most of our Jukebox local album reviews come with a 30 to 40 second audio sample on the page). Last week, Licciardi personally delivered a Discrevolt audio download card to the office for use to use online. He’ll have these available at the gig this week.
