Bring Back the Guns
when i first moved to Houston in 1999, i fell in love with a band called The Groceries. Bring Back the Guns is a reincarnation of The Groceries, fronted by Matt Brownlie. BBTG continues to be well-reviewed, with their most recent album, Dry Futures. The Houston Chronicle writes:
“Bring Back The Guns is making some of the most original music in the city. The band's music crackles with energy and makes the heart race. It isn't simple, and it's often weird, but these are the very reasons it engages you. You listen, you try to piece together what is being said and why, and then the key changes or the song stops and the rug is pulled out from under you.”
