COWBOYS, THE - s/t LP
- Label: Drunken Sailor
- Catalog Number: DrunkenSailor 062
- Availability: In Stock
Released on Lumpy in the US, excited to give this a Euro release. First 100 on Blue Vinyl, rest on Pink Vinyl.
The Cowboys hail from Bloomington, Indiana, after releasing several
cassettes, release this amazing debut LP. Ramshackle, lo-fi, sloppy, and
awesome. Garage punk takes the music back to its 60s roots, and that's
why we love it
There's a definite pre-punk sensibility here... Martin from Lumpy
Records compared them to the Gizmos, but I also hear plenty of other
pre-/proto-punk correlations like the Bizarros, the Dead Boys, and even a
bit of tough, retro 60s garage a la Billy Childish (something is very
Milkshakes-esque about several of the tracks here). The songs are all
really different from one another, ranging from an early Dead
Kennedys-esque, proto-hardcore kind of shuffle to tough melodic punk to
more 60s, and even 50s-inspired sounds that bear a passing resemblance
to Buddy Holly. It sounds like it would be all over the place, but it's
not... it's all tied together with solid playing and a nice DIY
aesthetic. SORRY STATE RECORDS.
