A Good Friday Flashback: The Buck Pets, "The Kings of the Texas New Wave"

I am finishing up a Buck Pets piece for the paper version of DC9 at Night in advance of

the band's reunion at Trees one week from tomorrow night

. And, as I went to look for an old piece of video on YouTube (

the "Iron Cock" performance at Trees in '91

, if you must know), I came across this very special something posted just last week by someone who'd unearthed an old VHS in his parents' basement: the Pets' appearance on

the old Night Flight show

. Jeff Liles briefly mentioned this clip in

his Echoes and Reverberations flashback

that ran on DC9 one year ago. I remember seeing it when it aired way back in 1990 -- it was, if you must know, quite the big deal.
