(coll): Meat/BAR
A set of songs from Infernal Bridegroom Productions, an under-ground theatre group in Houston. These songs were part of a play about barflies called "Songs from the Meat/BAR" and has songs by Houston-area musicians that were associated with the theatre group at one time or another. As you might expect from a play about drinking and dive bars, the songs definitely have a wee-hours feel to them -- scratchy Tom Waits-esque howls, drunken emotional ballads, and cursing. It's sort of as if Brecht/Weill met in Houston instead of Germany.
