So listening to the sample of texas I put together, I found it's not like California at all,it takes after the likes of Washington with the diverse sound; there's the skuns for instance with their straight up rock of Earthquake Wave while Plastic Idols composes a slinky, spaghetti western-esque if politically incorrect tribute to Asia with Siamese Lust. Even the actual defined punk bands are diverse; Big Boys bring a funk rythym to the incredibly short "Lesson" while The Dicks give us crunchy, grinding guitars in No Fucking War. Could it be that post punk had more of an impact than punk itself? If so, how and why? Does this phenomonon extend to the southeastern region as well? We shall find out!
