Huns- Live At The Palladium 1979 CD. The Huns were one of Austin, Texas' best underground Punk bands circa 1978-79. The band's original lineup consisted of lead vocalist Phil Tolstead, Dan Transmission on keyboards and backing vox, bassist Joel Richardson, drummer Tom Huckabee and guitarist Manny Rosario. Manny was a tough-talking, paranoid Puerto Rican with an inferiority complex. He tended to write sincere, iconoclastic punk anthems infuluenced by the Buzzcocks, Sex Pistols and the Ramones. Punk Rock was his savior, and he considered himself one of a small handful of authentic Austin Punks. Fasterm shorter, louder was his mantra and he incoporated that into the Huns sound. Notorious for their wild live performances, The Huns' popularity hit the fan when Phil got busted for kissing a cop during one of their shows. He was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and abusive language. This incident pretty much ended the band's career. This is a much needed reissue of one of the band's most electric live shows. The CD version includes a massive eight-page booklet featuring vintage photos and a complete oral history of The Huns, courtesy of drummer Tom Huckabee.
