Darth Vato’s van problems continue despite Buck Rogers-inspired theme
"...when the [van] finally gets mothballed, we'll probably buy something older and cheaper. Live and don't learn. That's Darth Vato."
The continuing drama of Fort Worth reggae-punk rockers Darth Vato and their choice of and travails in shitty automobiles has enthralled us for a couple years now.
Despite the newer ride, The Erin Grey, the trio are once again without transport. Unfortunately, the recent mishap meant canceled shows in Corpus Christi.
Eric and Kerry drop me off at the clinic (Eric trying to embarrass me over the copy of Dungeon Master for Dummies I've brought along to read--"sorry," I say, "but that only works when we're in a room full of hot girls"), where I will be seen by a nice little Dr. Juarez (she calls me Mr. ehSteward) and get a cortizone shot. Again, no big deal, so I check out and wander into the parking lot, where Eric and Kerry are waiting.
While on the way to a nearby mechanic, Kerry and Eric hearthe second and far more serious BAD NOISE. This one apparently sounded like a canon going off, followed immediately with the sound of some dude in a truck yelling, "Hey! yer drahve-shaft jes fellout!!!"
