This long overdue DVD release finally sees the light of day with New West's incredible LIVE FROM AUSTIN TEXAS series, which compiles classic episodes from the Austin City Limits archives. This volume achieves infamy as the show's only broadcast deemed too hot for TV. With Kinky Friedman and His Texas Jewboys as its main attraction, songs like "They Ain't Making Jews Like Jesus Anymore," "Arsehole from El Paso," and "Homo Erectus," the censors would have had too difficult a time keeping up with his propensity for ethnically tinged provocation. With his controversial humor and gonzo intellect, it's easy to forget that Friedman and His Texas Jewboys were a rollicking outlaw country outfit with an energy that bordered on punkish at times. The highlight, as usual with Friedman, is the set's closer "Ride 'Em Jewboy," which may be the best pop song ever written about the Holocaust.
