Arriving in 1978, hitched to the back of the Sex Pistols tour bus, punk soon became as mythic in Texas as the state’s devotion to football, cattle, and prayer. Confrontational renegades like the Huns, the Big Boys, and the Dicks led a defiant new era of blood, sweat, and cross-dressing cowboys. Austin son PAT BLASHILL grabbed a camera and began shooting local punk bands, uncovering a story of desperation and creative deliverance, set in trailer parks, low-rent shared living, and wild, Texas bucket-of-beer bars. Joining Blashill’s more than 200 deep black and white photos here are essays by director RICHARD LINKATER (Slacker/School of Rock); singer DAVID YOW (Scratch Acid/Jesus Lizard); drummer TERESA TAYLOR (Butthole Surfers); and local luminaries ADRIANE "ASH" SHOWN and DONNA RICH. True mavericks banded together to make a stand, and…Texas Is the Reason. Featuring the BIG BOYS, DICKS, BUTTHOLE SURFERS, POISON 13, THE HICKOIDS, OFFENDERS, SCRATCH ACID, DANIEL JOHNSTON, DOCTOR'S ORERS, and GLASS EYE. Deluxe 240-page hardcover book.
