The self-titled ''The Nuns'' album was released in late 1980 (albeit on BOMP! Records, who licensed it from Posh Boy for the USA). In the 1980s Escovedo moved to Austin, Texas, where he adapted a roots rock alternative country style in the bands Rank and File (with Chip and Tony Kinman) and the True Believers (with his brother Javier and Jon Dee Graham). However, it was with the release of his first solo albums, ''Gravity (Gravity (Alejandro Escovedo album))'' in 1992 and ''Thirteen Years'' in 1994, that he found his true voice. Although he has yet to crossover to a large mainstream audience, Escovedo has a huge underground following, and many popular artists cite him as a strong influence.

The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction calls him "a figure of edgy salience," and Gardner Dozois, who as editor of Asimov's Science Fiction published most of Utley's output during the 1990s, has suggested that he "may be the most under-rated science fiction writer alive," calling him a writer "of strength, suppleness, and seemingly endless resource ... able to turn his hand to almost any subject matter, mood, or type of story imaginable, and ... unafraid to tackle any of them." right thumb '''ABOVE:''' "Fusion Series #2174" By Cecil Touchon.

Austin, Texas

'''Austin''' ( metropolitan area, which had an estimated population of 1,883,051 as of July 1, 2013.

In the 1830s, pioneers began to settle the area in central Austin along the Colorado River (Colorado River (Texas)). After Republic of Texas Vice President Mirabeau B. Lamar visited the area during a buffalo (American bison)-hunting expedition between 1837 and 1838, he proposed that the republic's capital then located in Houston, be relocated to the area situated on the north bank of the Colorado River (Colorado River (Texas)) near the present-day Congress Avenue Bridge. In 1839, the site was officially chosen as the republic's new capital (the republic's seventh and final location) and was incorporated under the name Waterloo. Shortly thereafter, the name was changed to Austin in honor of Stephen F. Austin, the "Father of Texas" and the republic's first secretary of state.

The city grew throughout the 19th century and became a center for government and education with the construction of the Texas State Capitol and the University of Texas at Austin. After a lull in growth from the Great Depression, Austin resumed its development into a major city and, by the 1980s, it emerged as a center for technology and business. A number of Fortune 500 companies have headquarters or regional offices in Austin including Advanced Micro Devices, Apple Inc., eBay, Google, IBM, Intel, Texas Instruments, 3M, Oracle Corporation and Whole Foods Market. Fortune. 2009-Apr. Retrieved June 22, 2009. Dell's worldwide headquarters is located in nearby Round Rock (Round Rock, Texas), a suburb of Austin.

Residents of Austin are known as "Austinites (List of Austinites)".
