Like a drunk lipstick-stained preacher pointing a Colt .45 at a gossiping jezebel the Beat Cowboys are a wild bunch of contrasts. Taking their name from the iconic Jack Kerouac's 'On The Road', the Beat Cowboys harvest their musical roots from country music's hardest cases and rock 'n roll's primal insurgents. This band was grown among southern New Mexico and west Texas backroads where the Chile and cotton fields drink from irrigation canals born of the sweat of ten thousand immigrant workers. When the day is done the signature 'ditch-billy' sound of the Beat Cowboys shakes the cooling soil of the Rio Grande Valley calling the workers to the party at the local beer joint. The earthy, crunch-driven alt-country sound leaves the poets, the punks, the rocker-girl and the two-steppin' rooster satisfied and dying for more of the Beat Cowboys.
