Each year SXSW boasts one-of-a-kind performances that can’t be missed. One great example this year is the newly reformed “Animosity” lineup of Corrosion of Conformity. This lineup existed first back in 1985, consisting of vocalist/bassist Mike Dean, guitarist Woody Weatherman, and drummer/vocalist Reed Mullin. These three seasoned musicians wasted no time, minced no words, just picked up their instruments and punched out a short, stoner rock-infused dirge. The trio has incredible chemistry; the three are able to change tempos and segue into extended guitar solos effortlessly. Mike Dean shouted “Psychic vampire!” with menacing authority. Seeing this form of COC rock this hard, when other incarnations are also exceptional, is especially impressive.
