Joe Jack Talcum at Austin Town Hall

Joe Jack Talcum is probably better known for his comical word play in songs like “Big Lizzard,” but it seems that the Dead Milkmen songwriter has long had a soft side that I wasn’t even aware of, despite calling myself a fan. HHBTM is releasing the second collection of Talcum’s home recordings, illustrating a more down-trodden songwriter; this song has a heavy buzz on the guitar in the recording, showing us all what lo-fi really is meant to sound like.  So if you’re wondering what one of your favorite writers does in the confines of his home, give a listen to Home Recordings Vol. 2 1993-1999; it’s available right now.
