Dave, barefoot in just his Waldo and Nobunnies shouted “just be yourself, don’t be everyone else!” part way through TV Freaks set. I hoped Buddy Cole’s old haunt would be hosting surrogate Wax Museums. Being themselves, TV Freaks fit the bit. Eerily. Subnormals playing dumb, catchy punk, jerking and writhing. Pure entertainment, lewdness deflected by their comfort in the weirdo spectacle, preoccupied with fun above anything else. Their priorities are straight. They were done in under 30 minutes and TJ admitted they’re into Denton punk. I had a feeling.
