(Crooked Cowboy - good news)
A few weeks ago I ran a live set on Backstage Weekend from Crooked Cowboy & the Freshwater Indians. They had been kicking around for a while and had gotten a good word of mouth going in the Southern California area.
But apparently the long arm of C&L extends way past our borders because I was just informed a few days ago that Crooked Cowboy have since set up a management and label deal in the UK and should be heading over to Europe shortly. All because of our playing the live set on Newstalgia.
Needless to say I'm blown away as is Bron (Crooked Cowboy himself). I've had some indications this past year that we're eagerly listened to overseas, but I had no idea just how eagerly. So a big thanks to all you readers of Crooks and Liars and thanks for all your support and encouragement. As you can see, it's made a huge difference.
The first single, scheduled for release this year actually started life as a demo some years ago. Her Hopeful Diaries more or less pre-dates Crooked Cowboy, but the revamped version is clearly theirs. This track is a duet featuring, in addition to Crooked Cowboy, Lisa Papineau.
You heard it here first and it's a way of saying thank you for your good taste!
