Cargo Cult was a band from Austin, TX. It featured Randy “Biscuits” Turner of the Big Boys and Duane Denison before he moved to Chicago to form The Jesus Lizard.
After their first album, Strange Men Bearing Gifts on Touch and Go records, they recorded demos for a second album in 1987, but broke up before the record materialized. These demos are available now for the first time.
In 2004 Biscuits put together the Texas Biscuit Bombs with Maximum Rock’n’Roll and Left Of The Dial
writer David Ensminger. Their set list included many Texas punk classics (Really Red‘s “Teaching You the Fear”, The Dicks “Hate the Police”, and of course many Big Boys numbers), as well as not-so-punk classics (ZZ Top, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Spencer Davis Group).
This release includes 2 live sets recorded at Rudyard’s pub in Houston, Texas in 2004 and 2005. The second show being recorded just days before Biscuits
untimely death on August, 18th 2005.
Totalling 25 songs, this double LP features original cover art by Biscuits and a die-cut silkscreened cover. It also includes a set of 20 Cargo Cult and Texas Biscuit Bombs flyers. All copies are on colored vinyl.
