Cowboys and Indians

by Cowboy Mouth (NYC)

The sincere and skillful power pop originals on Cowboys and Indians take most of their character from textured guitar figures as well as one-finger organ/synthesizer tootles; Suicide would seem to be an influence on both the songwriting and the synth work

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Onetime John Cale sideman Dave Laredo (here singing and playing guitar) leads this New York quartet whose borrowed name was subsequently adopted by a New Orleans band. The sincere and skillful power pop originals on Cowboys and Indians take most of their character from textured guitar figures as well as one-finger organ/synthesizer tootles; Suicide would seem to be an influence on both the songwriting and the keyboard work. Whether chosen to illustrate the song or inspired by the photo, the front cover snapshot of Laredo as a toothy eight-year-old is perfectly synched with "Mr. Wilson," a cute song written from Dennis the Menace's perspective.

So Happy I Found it Again
After switching to CDs oh so many years ago, there were a few albums I couldn't replace and kept. Unfortuneately, they were subsequently destroyed in a flood. This was my biggest loss. Every few years I'd do a search, but would only come up with the other 'Cowboy Mouth.' But now, alas, success!! This is one of the funnest albums I've ever owned, and the instrumentation and vocals are nuanced perfectly for this tongue-in-cheek ode to the old west. Just a great album.

Still Great!
I had forgotten how much I liked this record. It still sounds as fun today as it did back then.

Coop

Outstanding
I was excited to see this on CD and wasn't disappointed! Fans of Guadalcanal Diary and "should have beens" The Unforgiven will enjoy this rock solid effort. Sounds fresh 20 years later, with Hurricane and Ki Yi Yea being the stand-out tracks! Sound quality is excellent and it has two songs not found on the LP. Recommended!

COWBOYS AND INDIANS
After over 20 years, I finally heard this great band again.

"My Brown Girl" is Brilliant ! One of the Greatest Songs Ever !
"My Brown Girl" is Brilliant ! One of the Greatest Songs Ever ! Requested it on SiriusXM satellite radio's "Old-School Indie" rock show on SiriusXMU channel....That song and "Hurricane" were played for a few months in 1986 on a great college radio station in my hometown area; I partially taped the songs live off the air on my boombox and was never able to hear or find them again until now.
