There was a time when being a Buttercup fan required no small amount of tolerance for guerilla art nonsense. You couldn't buy a Buttercup record, but you could call frontman Erik Sanden's Dial-a-Song hotline and hear a track a week played back on his answering machine. You could go to a Buttercup show, but you did so knowing that your odds of getting to see the band actually play a normal set were pretty slim. Sometimes you'd show up and the band would just play home movies. Or invite the audience members, one by one, into an office to ask them about their day, play them a single song and send them on their way. At one gig, you could only watch the show by staring down into one of four different 50-gallon barrels, each holding a TV monitor showing a different Buttercup member as the band played the entire set hidden in another room. Buttercup called these weekly (later monthly) shows, invariably BYOB affairs staged at some dimly lit art gallery in downtown San Antonio, Grackle Mundys. No two were ever alike, except for the familiar faces in the crowd who showed up faithfully week after week like members of a secret society (the Buttercult, if you will.) Some newcomers invited by friends or curiosity, no doubt came just to see what new performance art stunt the band would reveal. But those in the know came knowing that said gimmicks, from the inspired and wacky fun to the, well, confounding were always secondary to the music. They'd willingly jump through hoops, walk under ladders and stare down oil drums to hear Buttercup's songs simply because the songs were worth it. Buttercup's new album, Hot Love, like it's 2005 predecessor Sick Yellow Flower, is the proof. Granted, that name itself 'Hot Love!' at first blush seems like yet another silly distraction. Or worse. The jaded and uninitiated will surely misinterpret it as a tell-tale sign of that all-too-trendy, irony-on-sleeve hipster bullshit that passes for cool in indie-rock circles these days. But any member of the Buttercult can attest that this is not a band that's ever been overly concerned with being cool. The four members have far more important things to sort out, like where and when a chorus of las might work better than a string of fa-fa-fahs or a winsome whistle, and whether any given solo is better served by electric guitar or ukulele. When in doubt, Buttercup doesn't fret over 'What is cool?' so much as the question, 'What would Ray Davies do?' Even Davies at his Kinkiest never went so far as to dub an album or song 'Hot Love'' but chances are he'd hear his influence on it as clear as the first time he heard The Who's 'Can't Explain' and mistook it for one of his own. Which should by no means suggest that Buttercup are brazen mimics so much as star students of one of rock's most esteemed schools of song writing. Chief among the lessons learned there: blatant irony is unnecessary once one masters the craft of marrying camp to earnest, and the ability to rock feebly when a song calls for it is as important as knowing how to rock hard. 'I think that's Buttercup's forte, to really be able to interpret what a song needs,' muses guitarist/singer Joe Reyes, who joined founding members Sanden (guitar, vocals), Odie (bass/vocals) and Jamie Roadman (drums/glockenspiel/vocals) in 2002. 'I think everybody in the band enjoys doing the really mellow things as well as the loud, bashy, Who Live at Leeds kind of stuff that we also do. Those other guys in the band come from such a rock background, it's in their pedigree to rock it up a bit. But when we play a really tender song, there's a sensitivity to it that comes from the years they've played together.' Buttercup was formed loosely some five years ago, though Sanden, Odie and Roadman had been playing together in various San Antonio rock groups for the better part of the last 15 years. Reyes himself was always a rocker at heart, too, but he spent years as half of the Grammy-nominated, flamenco instrumental duo Lara & Reyes and as an in-demand session musician and studio hound (he co-produced Freddy Fender's Grammy-winning
