The Baptist Generals of Denton Texas are purveyors of some of the scariest acoustic guitar mangling you’re likely to hear. Main General Chris Flemmons plays the acoustic guitar the way it was meant to be played: like a motherfuckin’ drum. Perhaps the best way to describe this band is to remind you that they come from Texas, a state that gave us everyone from Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings to Roky Erickson and the Butthole Surfers. And, No Silver/No Gold has that coveted quality of sounding as though it might fall apart at any moment.
