With a practically sold out 7" on Golden Lab Records, and a totally sold out split 7" on Bloodloss, Cowtown are about to release an album on Chinchilla-Tone (CD), Golden Lab (Vinyl), Catmobile (extra distribution) and On The Bone (downloads).
Delectable chunks of angular no/new-wave noisy pop played by people who clearly know what they're on about (their other bands include Tigers!, Brown Owl, Beards, G-Fang, The Dragon Rapide, Monster Killed By Laser, etc). When people talk about Cowtown songs, they always go 'I like the one with the Hard Days Night chord at the start, and the one that goes, 'Deneh! Deneh! Deneh-duh-duh! Deneh! Deneh-duh duh!'. A sound that touches upon Devo, The Beatles, Deerhoof and Link Wray, this is the juiciest piece of summer fruit you'll taste all year, even if they have been frozen ready for consumption in late November... but it'll come topped with the cream of newly added bonus vocals, from Ste (Pifco).
Freewheeling dysfunctional big beat drums! Cosmic keys! Mind controlling tone generators! Limb shaking guitars! Shifted sax! Jazz lounge with uncomfortable sofas! Broken R'n'B! Calypso played naked in the fridge-freezer! Euphoric knees-up! Psychedelic forays into wonk pop! Fresh faced fortune tellers! Tear jerkers! Motivational speakers! One Love Revivalists!
"Ah, you sweet little rogue, you! alas, poor ape, how thou sweatest! Come, let me wipe thy face; come on, you whoreson chops: ah, rogue! i'faith, I love thee: thou art as valorous as Hector of Troy, worth five of Agamemnon, and ten times better than the Nine Worthies" (King Henry IV, part II: II, iv Shakespeare).
Forthcoming releases include a split 12" on Upset! The Rhythm with someone as yet unknown, and a split DVD with Talibam! on Chinchilla-Tone. Their faces are also seen in popular beat combos such as Quack Quack, I Had An Inkling (EYE HAI), Sense Or This?, Massive Heron, etc.
