Our Austin Correspondent Reports On The Fleshtones’ Latest Triumph

In addition to posting this video evidence of Fleshtones mania in the capital of the Lone Star State, we have this report from our correspondent in Austin:

They were on fire this weekend.  Some highlights:

• Friday and Saturday they pulled their shirts off, went out in the crowd and led a push-up contest.

• In Dallas, Peter Zaremba kept referring to me as “Joey” — so after they were done, people kept coming up to me and calling me Joey.

• Wednesday they played an in-store at Waterloo — the owner introduced them and said “Viva les Fleshtones” and Peter without pause says “Ooo-uff wit dey heads.”

• They started out in front of the clubs all three nights and worked their way through the surprised crowds singing and banging drums like pied pipers.

• Keith Streng and Ken Fox were airborn for probably about 50% of the sets.
