Texas literary luminary Larry McMurtry’s comment that “being a writer and a Texan is an amusing fate, one that gets funnier as one’s sense of humor darkens,” perfectly describes the members of our favorite Austin-based band. With twisted humor and highly literate, sharply pointed lyrics, the Austin Lounge Lizards poke fun at politics, love, religion, and mass culture. Founding members Conrad Deisler and Hank Card, both on guitars, plus Bruce Jones on bass and Darcie Deaville on fiddle, mandolin, and quips offer up spiffy vocal harmonies and polished instrumentals that come together for a sound and sensibility that’s part bluegrass, part country, part Cajun, and pure irreverence.
