Album Notes
Like a drunk lipstick-stained preacher pointing a Colt .45 at a gossiping jezebel the Beat Cowboys are a wild bunch of contrasts. Taking their name from the iconic Jack Kerouac's "On The Road", the Beat Cowboys harvest their musical roots from country music's hardest cases and rock 'n roll's primal insurgents. This band was grown among southern New Mexico and west Texas backroads where the chile and cotton fields drink from irrigation canals born of the sweat of ten thousand immigrant workers. When the day is done the signature "ditch-billy" sound of the Beat Cowboys shakes the cooling soil of the Rio Grande Valley calling the workers to the party at the local beer joint. The earthy, crunch-driven alt-country sound leaves the poets, the punks, the rocker-girl and the two-steppin' rooster satisfied and dying for more of the Beat Cowboys.

keeping it simple is always better!
It oozes out of El Paso, 30 miles to the east,
a mournful,undecipherable jumble of words seemingly pulled at random from a dictionary of
obuscure words & phrases pulled along by a soundtrack of crashing guitars & noise, I'm talking about At The Drive In,The Mars Volta,
Sparta & to a lesser extent,Sleepercar, they cast a dark shadow over this region, those sad fuzzy
headed boys of angst, The Beat Cowboys in contrast
are a breathe of fresh air, hell you actually
know what they're singing about, yes what the
Mesilla Valley needs is more men wearing cowboy
hats instead of black lipstick, On this release
the Beat Cowboys harken back to the days of old
San Francisco (Haight-Asbury not the Gold Rush),
On this ep's best song "Black Egg" they channel
their inner Moby Grape, the country influence of
the early 60's Country-Folk-Stoner Rock pulls it
all together, but they don't leave their other
root influences behind (the Stones,Garage Rock)
what the Mesilla Valley needs, hell what the USA
needs is more Beat Cowboys, yeah that and cold
beer, adios compadre.
