Houston's amorphous tripped out psych-noise troupe stopped by WFMU earlier this week for a live performance on Liz B's show. Hatched from the Swarm of Angels, Indian Jewelry had previously gone under the names NTX + Electric, Turquoise Diamons, The Corpses of Waco, and The Perpetual War Party Band. Four years ago, they stopped by WFMU as Nikki Texas + The Turquoise Diamonds for a chaotic live set on OCDJ's show (real-audio archive from 2004). This week's incarnation of Indian Jewelry included Tex Kerschen, Erika Thrasher and Brandon Davis.
