Formed in the late 1980s in Dallas, Texas, The Buck Pets were clearly influenced by earlier bands such as The Replacements, The Buzzcocks and The Jesus and Mary Chain but incorporated better production values and more overt nods to classic rock than their college rock/punk predecessors. The band got little support from their record label for their first two LPs, the hard-edged The Buck Pets, and the more melodic follow up Mercurotones. The band stopped by to play a few songs during the KXT Afternoon Show with Joe Kozera.
