Paint Me On Velvet - The Austin Lounge Lizards
Daniel S. Adair | Felton, California United States | 08/10/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Another amazing album from the Lizards. They have a unique ability to "send-up" country and western cliches. Reminiscing about dear old Grand-pop becomes a ballad about loading his image onto a laser projector and "sitting in the kitchen with Grandpa's hologram." The theme of the beauty of Texas becomes, "That Godforsaken Hell-Hole I Call Home," ("all my friends are buried there and some of them are dead . . .") In a truly bizarre and wonderful twist, they combine the theme of the strong, silent man with the drivel of the men's movement, in "Paint Me On Velvet" ("we stood around in the rain, just a feeling our pain, and learning to grieve.") As usual with the Lizards, an absolute hoot of an album, combined with total mastery of bluegrass and Texas Swing. A gem of an album."
