The Flametrick Subs is a high-energy, theatrical, Austin, Texas based band. The group was started in 1989 by guitarist/singer, Buster Crash. The band’s style is a tongue-in-cheek combination of rockabilly, garage, surf, and B-movie soundtracks. The show is a guilty-pleasure fueled high-speed train wreck with a rockabilly beat. Feel good now… Feel bad tomorrow.
The band has released six full albums beginning with the 1991 release of “Amaze Your Friends with X-Ray Glasses!” on Teen Rebel Records. The next album, “Undead at the Black Cat Lounge” was a live recording at the now defunct, legendary Austin venue, released on Last Call Records. The group then released their third record, “Something in Japanese” on Austin-based Kransky Records. Following several West Coast tours, the group went back into the studio and recorded “Voodoo Doo”, out on Texas Flat Lizard Records. The stage at World-famous Antone’s in Austin was the setting for “Six Feet Deep in the Heart of Texas”, a combination Live Album/DVD released by Texas Flat Lizard. The band’s last release; a tribute to The Cramps’ singer, Lux Interior, entitled “In the Lap of Luxury” came out in 2015, also on Texas Flat Lizard.
The band has toured extensively around Texas, as well as throughout the Southwest, playing both headlining and support gigs. The band has shared the stage with many great bands, The Cramps, Deadbolt, X, Lee Rocker, The Meteors, One-Eyed Doll, Levi Dexter, The Reverend Horton Heat, Dale Watson, The Supersuckers, Nashville Pussy, Hank III, and Ghoultown.
The band is currently signed to Texas Flat Lizard Records.
