Stretch to Fit
Review of a 2003 show put together by the Austin, Texas bmx/skateboard outfit T1 : 'Well once again we were honored with the presence of some exceptional musicians... It was cold outside the Ritz and colder in our hearts but for the grace of ROCK!!! Heheheh... So we blew it with the opening band - we spelled their name wrong - and we'd like to extend a sincere apology to them. We put The Housewives on the flyer but that's not their name - it's Housewife - singular not plural... Regardless of our blunder - They were great - as if there were no resentment whatsoever for our failure. I haven't seen their name around and don't know how often they play but I can say I was glad to have them play for us - and I'll definitely go see them again. Good melodies, good strong rythms, nice lyrics, good energy... Pretty much everything you want out of Rock&Roll. A few times in their set some lyric would make me cringe with sorrow for loves long lost and bitterness unresolved... HA!!! That's what I want on a cold ass thursday night. A side note - it was my first time doing sound there (Bryan couldn't make it) and this band sounded so good they made me sound good - I feel like that's saying something...' ____Austin Chronicle's own Chris Gray in his weekly article TCB: HOUSEWIFE, 'Lies and Treachery': Snappy pop reminiscent of the Cure's 'In Between Days' that clocks in at under two minutes -- plenty of time for the hook to slide between those shoulder blades.
