ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Loaded to the brim with guitars, accordions, guitars, keyboards, drums, and guitars, the X-Rated Cowboys deliver on their third album. Released on the band's own FFN Records label, the self-titled disc once again features Dan Baird (Georgia Satellites, Yayhoos) as the producer and is filled with more songs of loves lost, sorrows drowned, and lives left behind. And did we mention the guitars?

The X-Rated Cowboys are Quinn Fallon (vocals, acoustic guitar, and songwriting), Andy Harrison, (electric guitar), Chris Skrobot (electric guitar), Bob Hite (keyboards, accordion), and C. Douglas Wells (drums). Bass duties were handled by Joe Oestreich (Watershed), Phil Maneri (Scott Gorsuch band), and Baird.

The latest album follows Honor Among Thieves and Saddest Day of the Year which enjoyed critical praise in magazines and websites from around the globe as well as airplay from a number of radio specialty shows including broadcasts across Europe. The result has been thousands of CDs sold world-wide.

Critics have compared the band to a wide-range of artists including Elvis Costello, The Replacements, John Wesley Harding, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springsteen. They have called the band's sound pub-rock, roots-rock, twang-pop, and a host of other hyphenated adjectives.

One recent review said: "The new album continues where Saddest left off, melding pop hooks with light touches of guitar crunch to accent Fallon's penchant for tear-in-a-beer lyricism. If anything, the album is more contemplative, with Fallon ruminating on abandoned dreams ("Passenger Window," "Just Past the Headlights") and the choice of playing in bars for a living ("$100 Guitar"). He attributes this to simply writing about what he knows, which includes running the bar he co-owns."

The Cowboys have shared the stage with several nationally-recognized acts including Cake, Tenacious D, O.A.R., Toby Keith, Sheryl Crow, Blue October, and Dave Pirner of Soul Asylum who joined them onstage for a cover of a Replacements song.
