ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The center of the universe resides in Lakewood California just outside of Long Beach where the savior of modern music “Toy Gun Cowboy” was both conceived and issued from its intellectual womb in one stunning, magical instant. The promising “Toy Gun Cowboy” was nurtured and allowed to develop within the fertile hot house known as the “Paint Shop” (a recording studio conveniently located at the above mentioned center of the universe). As “Toy Gun Cowboy” grew in size and strength it gained the interest of another kindred spirit “Gutter Groove Records”. The two combined forces to release a New Six Song EP entitled “d/b/a/ Toy Gun Cowboy – Star?... Or No Star?”

Star?...Or No Star? Is a blend of musical styles and meatball beat surgery that immediately transports the listener to wherever the listener happens to be at the exact moment that listener is listening.

So please, enjoy some of the samples provided here.

Bluesbunny Editor

Mmm..strange
We certainly get all sorts of music through the letterbox at Bluesbunny Towers. Rock, pop, country, blues, and indie - we get the lot. Then we get the stuff that can't really be classified. Stuff like Toy Gun Cowboy.

We get 6 songs on this mini-album. "Lo-fi" does what it says on the tin though, oddly enough, it is the vocals that appear to be lo-fi so we must assume that it was an artistic rather than technical choice. "Renaissance" starts off with a Middle Eastern feel before leaping across a conventional bridge into indie rock territory. Like most of the songs, the lyrics are more of a chant than anything else. "Scatterbrain" comes across all conventional apart from the heavily processed vocals and the lyrics suggest that the writer does not play well with others. A similarly downbeat feel also haunts the lyrics of "Broken (Evelyn's Theme)". The closing track "Big Box of Buttons" had thinking us - of all things - of Prince's funkier early stuff. We also suspect that those distorted vocals would get kind of annoying after a bit for most people.

So, what's it all about then? Well, the Bluesbunny is not really sure. In many ways, it seemed like the kind of music that deranged artists like NN Maddox or Stagger Lee (of 14 Mercy Records) are releasing. However, Toy Gun Cowboy seems more discontented than disturbed. There is a message in these songs but this Bluesbunny is not sure that he gets it. By no means unlistenable, it does seem at times rambling and unfocused. Perhaps we have another angry young man lurking just under the surface?
