There are five reasons why the Asylum Street Spankers will rule the world someday: (1) The Austin, Texas, outfit melds a multitude of venerable musical styles into a satisfying sonic gumbo. (2) The Spankers kick serious booty in concert -- and they don't need amps or a PA system to do it. (3) ASS has more red-eyed odes to sticky green bud than Cypress Hill. (4) To mix things up, the group also sings songs about beer. ( 5) Christian Woman Today magazine once condemned the Spankers for having "absolutely filthy subject matter and lyrics" but still gave props to the group's "exemplary musicianship." Amen to that.
