Making musical discoveries is just about my favorite thing on earth. I get quite a thrill digging up rare gems on YouTube, such as this video from Aussie band, the Sacred Cowboys, whom I found buried deep down in the ‘Related Videos’ column while viewing another 80’s Australian band’s promo.
The Sacred Cowboys are what happen when you take the clap-your-hands-say-yeehaw sound of a country hoedown, add some synthy, new wave flourishes, and then deliver this composite with a punk attitude. It’s ‘utter-ly’ odd and wonderful!
Unfortunately, after some research, this video and a brief entry in Wikipedia is all I’ve been able to turn up for this band. If any of you ModReaders have more information, please let us know.
Also, we’d love to hear about any underground bands that you’ve recently uncovered!
