Very loud cricket song

Cricket (Alamo) by Weedons World
This is a recording I made of an extraordinarily loud cricket which made a home in the skirting board of my appartment in Alamo, Texas. It was unbelievably loud. Play this at high volume on headphones and you will get an impression. Now imagine sleeping through that racket. Luckily on the fourth or fifth night of sleeplessness, after I attempted to block its hole with pillows, it climbed onto one of them for a good perch to chirp from. I was then able to carry it outside and never be troubled again. Bliss.
And this is what the noisy fellow looked like. Anyone know the species?
