Freddie Steady 5, The, Tex Pop
The Freddie Steady 5 is back! Tex-Pop is just that—a powerful package of jangly, Beatlesque pop with a Texas touch. Texas Music Hall-of-Famer Freddie Krc (rhymes with search) has fronted some of Texas' coolest bands, including a country unit called Freddie Steady's Wild Country, a punk/pop band of legendary influence called The Explosives, and Western folk rock outfit, The Shakin' Apostles. The Freddie Steady 5 is his most personal project yet, a vehicle for the kind of rock and roll that first captured his imagination when he saw the Beatles on Ed Sullivan. Krc was a Texas kid (still is) who found inspiration in that British beat, making it only fitting that his first concert was the Tex-Mex group with the British name, the Sir Douglas Quintet. Tex Pop is a little bit Beatles, a little bit Sir Doug, and a whole lot of Texas pop, Freddie Steady style.
