The Refreshment's "Banditos" is one of my favorite songs to come out of the alt-rock era. I've seriously just listened to it eight or nine times back-to-back. It's great.

So anyway, to me at least, The Refreshments were a one-hit wonder. Did they have any other good material? I only have "Banditos" because I downloaded it -- is it worth picking up the album it came from? Any other albums?

Yeah, I've heard of them... but that's about it. Seems like they had a single that got some play, but I can't remember. I'm sampling the song you listed to see if it jogs my memory.

LOL, now I remember why I've heard of them....

And I'm kind of ashamed to admit it
... they do the "King of the Hill" theme song. HAHA! That is a cool song you were talking about.. I may have to pick the album up if I can find it.

Haha, the King of the Hill theme? That's great. Are you sure though? -- because I know they broke up quite a while ago, way before that show came on the air. Not that that means they couldn't still use their music. ...

I am truly sorry that I have never heard of the Refreshments. But it does appear that they did do the King Of The Hill theme. Quote:

King of the Hill Theme from King of the Hill [Original Television Soundtrack]
Good Year from Bottle & Fresh Horses
Down Together from Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy
Banditos from Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy
Tributary Otis from Bottle & Fresh Horses
Buy American from Bottle & Fresh Horses
Years Go Passing By from Bitter
Bitter from Bitter
Mexico from Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy
Nada from Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy


Go to AMG for more information.
I tried to link to the Refreshments page but it wouldn't work. So you will have to type them in the search box......sorry

The song "Mexico" is pretty good.

Most of their other stuff isn't that good though.
