The Rods Rip Up Texas With Their Rad Album Cover!

This last weekend I went on a super adventure to Marfa Texas for a friends birthday bash! It was a neat little barrio town in the middle of nowhere and was filled with alot of incredible art and interesting people. The kind of city that when you go out to a party in the evening you see everyone you encountered earlier that day, like your waiter at the restaurant, the guy from the liquor store, the person who gave you the art tour, the grocery store bagger guy, and even the 65 year old jewelry maker wound up partying down with the best of ’em. So yeah there were alot of art foundations there too-I even checked out the Andy Warhol “Last Supper” paintings-but I have to say that the best peice of artwork I saw was on an album cover of a record I bought at a vintage thrift store there! 

The album was by a band I have never heard of called The Rods. It’s called “Wild Dogs” and boy I’m kinda wishing it’s album cover was on display there in Marfa! Yeah I couldn’t resist-I got the album back safely and was pleasantly suprised at how hard The Rods kicked my motherfucking ass with their rock too! Anyway here’s a song from the album-sometimes you can judge a book by it’s cover!!
