Rattle Your Skull with Pariah on Local Licks!
Posted 10/28/2013 5:51:00 PM

Tune in at 11:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 29th, as I welcome Kyle Ellison to the KLBJ studios to talk about the re-release of the re-mastered Pariah album "Rattle Your Skull," which will be available on itunes on Halloween! 

Here's a brief history of Pariah:  Vocalist Dave Derrick, guitarists Kyle Ellison and Jared Tuten, bassist Sims Ellison and drummer Shandon Sahm (the son of Tex-Mex legend Doug Sahm, incidentally) met in high school in San Antonio and began playing together with various lineups. Eventually settling on the name Pariah (not to be confused with the English heavy metal band of the same time), their live show earned them a regional following, and a contract with Geffen soon followed. Pariah's debut album, To Mock a Killingbird, was released in mid-1993. Tragically, Sims Ellison would commit suicide two years later -- the victim of depression. But the Sims Foundation was founded in his honor to provide health care to Austin area musicians.
