Hotrod Hillbillies

A Texas Trio from Austin which plays a large mix of orginals some would describe as "Punkabilly-Cowpunk". No matter what you call it, it is always a Good Texas Time with these boys as they sing about Fast Cars, Fast Woman, Whiskey, Cocaine and Texas.

Some Press:

ROCKABILLY MAGAZINE - November / December 2005
CD Review of "UNDER THE TEXAS SKY
As on 2002 debut "Let Alcoholass, " Austin's Hotrod Hillbillies revel unapologetically in a heady and swaggering pastiche of drawled and twanged alt-country/light speed punk proselytizing. A full frontal triad with guitar/stand up/drums virtual WMD's behind Xavier Ortiz Lone Star declamatory sneering's, this Bar Room hit squared leaves none unviolated. Guitarist/Singer Ortiz pens the assauultive material and drummer Nic Botello and stand up bassist Chris Parrish have his back and then some. Close your eyes, and you can practically smell the beer. Don't fuck with Texas Rock'nRoll. 5 Stars

RECOMMENDED TRACKS: "Git Gone", "Texas Sky" "Back Seat", "Pissed and Depressed". - November / December 2005

Comfortable Couch” is a pleasant honky-tonk vignette about the upside of fighting with the girlfriend/wife, and the playing is crisp and proficient throughout, especially on raucous near-instrumental “Chickens and Pigs.”

They are proficient musicians and the vocals are pretty decent , the majority of their songs revolve around typical, hillbilly topics. Songs about race cars, whiskey, farm animals, bitches and a comfortable couch all fit into this 11 track disc. “Chicken & Pigs” is my Favorite!

Yeeehaw look out for the Hotrod Hillbillies, a rockabilly, cow-punk, blast of a band! They came down and played Tex’s Taphouse for me a couple of times and were AWESOME! You’ll have one helluva great night!

Hotrod Hillbillies punch the pedal to the metal, like a gang of mad moonshiners burning 100-proof hooch through their carburetors and livers.
