the peas on your knife aren't peas anymore

OK I got a little off on this thread...but I am hearing whirled peas and Austin Texas...and that phrase as well as some other rather bizarre proclamations was offered by the host and I think part owner of the "House that Freddie built" in 1971 or 1972 for what was perhaps my first concert to see ZZTop without at least siblings supervision. A free dinner at my favorite NM cafe or breakfast burrito at the balloon fiesta to the first correct identification of said speaker.

For one of those great breakfast burritos with Hatch Chili, I'll make a guess.
I don't think it was Freddie King, that would be too easy. I am going to guess that it was Willie Nelson...

Not Willie

It was the house that Freddie King built (the long defunct Armadillo World Headquarters) but not Willie Nelson nor any musical performer. The man was an artist, and like I said I believe part owner of the Armadillo.

Eddie Wilson maybe?

The Armadillo has been gone for decades now, but Eddie built a restaurant on part of the old Armadillo grounds, a sister to his semi-famous Threadgills restaurant on North Lamar (where Janis Joplin among others sang long, long ago). It is aptly named "Threadgills World Headquarters" in honor of the old Armadillo World Headquarters, and there's a nice outdoor music venue on the site as well.

eddie is close

but not who I remember. The MC I am thinking of painted the ceilings in the AWH and the cover of at least one of Freddie Kings albums (those bluebonnets). If you make it to the fiesta I'll get you a burritto for that guess though.

Perhaps the guy behind Oat Willie's...? or are you thinking of Mr Crumb...?
or the guy who did such things as a drawing of an oak tree growing out of Frank Erwin's head...?(after the expansion of Longhorn Stadium was slated to take out a bunch of old oaks...people were chaining themselves to the trees...)...
Dating myself here(NO, not that way), but I went to Threadgill's on north Lamar when it was an old gas station...Kenneth sang, yodeled(SP?) and occasionally played rhythm with a straw broom on the floor...Bill Neely was his guitar man(REALLY good)...
Despite my mental meandering, does any of that strike a familiar chord?

threadgills and more

ok I sort of hijacked this thread...so I think I should give it back. I was thinking Jim Franklin...strange man for sure, painted all those murals on the ceiling, stood up on stage and recited this little poem that among other peculiar statements...the peas on your knife aren't peas anymore.

Threadgills was closed by the time I got to Austin...but I actually went to school with his Kenneths grandkids. I remember listening to him yodel frequently at the beer garden maybe even at Taco Flats.

By the way, if Oat Willy and AWH make you creak, what about the Vulcan Gas and Light...Congress and 5th(I think?)...Rocky Erikson and the 13th Floor Elevators played there...
I actually worked the auction at AWH, after it closed...that's where I got Franklin's ink of the oak tree growing out of Erwin's head...
