A Slice of Watermelon

Watermelon Records are one of many record labels operating out of Austin, Texas
To quote the blurb on The Watermelon Sampler Volume 1 "Watermelon has all but defined the vast parameters of the Texas music sensibility, a realm where the only borders are the limits of an artist's creative imagination"
Aye - whatever.
As with most samplers there are some hits and some misses.
Here are a couple which I quite enjoyed.
Webb Wilder is a new name on me but I am advised that he is "the last of the full-grown men" with his own philosophy "work hard,rock hard,sleep hard,eat hard, grow big,wear glasses if you need them" Something we should all aspire to I think.
He is also of the view that you should Stay Out of Automobiles
Timbuk3 from Austin had a smash  hit with The Future's So Bright I've Got to Wear Shades" and are in fact a husband and wife team of Pat and Barbara K MacDonald accompanied by a boom box playing backing tracks.
You are getting some Dirty,Dirty Rice. Hopefully I have not offended Gwyneth Paltrow who was on the net recently indicating that rice has feelings!
