"Holy cow, man! How come The Cowlicks aren't famous? 'Hey Hey We're The Cowlicks' is the finest Americana recording to come out of the SF/Bay Area music scene in a long, long time. No Monkee business here, just lots of great singing, writing, twanging guitars and sweet emotion. Go and watch them sing and play!"
Larry Carlin, Carltone's Corner
The Cowlicks have always been good, but their new CD, 'Hey Hey We're the Cowlicks' is even more gooder.
The Core group of Todd Novak, Mike Anderson and Dan Newitt along with special guests have realy gelled into
something that could only be described as great! I highly recomend this for the Alternative Country fan...5 Moo's

AMAZING NEW CD! I just picked up my copy and I really love it!
THE COWLICKS are one of those bands that simply can't be defined by the limits of any single musical genre - they do it all; hard-core country classics, blistering classic rock covers in a country-rock style, banjo pickin' bluegrass numbers, and foot stompin', beer drinkin', laugh out load alt-country tunes.

Keep on lickin' fellers, What a great CD..Fun Lyrics and as always HOT pickin' !

The Cowlicks are a perfect example of the crazy, wonderful things that can happen when you put guys and guitars together. Their latest release, Hey Hey We're the Cowlicks is a rockin' good country road trip, with Ralph Stanley, Jimi Hendrix and Aerosmith along for the ride, backed by a soundtrack of original, twangy, dastardly clever tunes. Have a Cow!

"Cant resist a track called "Psychedelic Servive Station by The Cowlicks. They're obviously off their trolleys. Love em' for it! BBC Radio, Trailer Star Lounge
New release by the winners of the California Music Award for "Outstanding Country/Alt. Country Album of 2004"
April 2006: Hot off the presses, less than a week from the factory, California DJs are saying:
"I think this is the one that is going to push them into the bigtime. I hope so, they deserve it."
-Peggy O' of KFJC's "Out Behind The Barn"
"Psychedelic Service Station reminds me why I love these guys! Gram Parsons would be proud!"
-Wesley Robertson of KVMR's "Rockin' and Stompin"
More about the Cowlicks and Todd Novak's music:
"This Quintet delivers catchy, countrified gems dripping with slide and mandolin mastery."
"This isn't just pure countrified roots music: The song writing is so good, and the playing so
intense, you think you are hearing a rocker who could be the next Tom Petty.. If Hank Williams
and Tom Petty met, got trashed, and ended up jammin', it might have come out like this."
-Brad Kava, San Jose Mercury News
"The Cowlicks take the bull by the horns to corral a spot on the alt. country music map"
-Rick DelVecchio, San Francisco Chronicle
"A sweet slice of Byrds-flavored pie; classic/cosmic California tunefulness."
-Eric Babcock, Catamount Records
The Cowlicks debut cd "CWA"-Cowboys with Attitude" won the California Music Award for "Outstanding
Country/Alt. Country Album of 2004 (formerly the Bammies) beating out five other nominees including
Merle Haggard and Buck Owens.
The band was voted "Best of the East Bay 2003 by the East Bay Express who state: "The Cowlicks ooze twang
easily, and are unpretentious to a fault. They can write the catchy hell out of a song."
