The Austin Lounge Lizards have a way with lyrics. They also have nice voices and a good touch combining pop-style with bluegrass. The introductory riff to the title song is bluegrass sped up by a factor of 10.
The title song sneaks in references to mythology, the bible, Elvis, Kafka, and Shakespeare. It also rhymes "wallop" with "trollop."
The a capella "Chester Nimitz Oriental Garden Waltz" is lovely if you don't listen to the words, and sidesplitting if you do listen to them. Includes a round. Rhymes "banyan" and "companion."

Fifteen years ago you could drive 50 miles every Thursday night and sit with the same 75 people in a closed down cafe to listen to the Lounge Lizards sing the best they'd ever do. Those songs are available today as they performed them then and recorded them on vinyl. Highway Cafe of the Damned and Creatures of the Black Saloon contain them all. The fact I wouldn't trade a single song from any those guys released later doesn't take anything away from the ones they produced during that, their zenith. If you've never heard (of) the Austin Lounge Lizards and you buy these two albums you'll be compelled to buy the others just to make absolutely certain I'm wrong. You won't feel cheated, but you will feel a little disappointed.
Introduce yourself to them with Highway and Creature. On those you'll feel no letdown at all.

The Austin Lounge Lizards have produced quite a few albums over the years, but this is the one I come back to again and again. Highway Cafe of the Damned, the title track, is simply brilliant, and there is not a single cut which misses. Unfortunately, the Ballad of Ronald Reagan is no longer topical, but you can't fault the band for making funny, biting satire about (then somewhat) current politics.
