Dead Cowboys | Twin Evil Stars

Twin Evil Stars is the second album by Dead Cowboys, the cult Liverpool alt.pop band with roots in The Room and Benny Profane. Dead Cowboys offer a distinctly British slant on twisted Americana and bottom-of-the-glass heartache. Singer/songwriter Dave Jackson rips through a stash of raw-edged, country-peppered prairie gems as menacing as they are dynamic. The band describe Twin Evil Stars as a 'cowgoth' hybrid of post-punk folk, fused to classic torch ballad pop. A sort of Unamericana for people who dig Hank Williams and Joy Division, but think Ryan Adams sounds like bad pub rock.
The album was recorded in the band's hometown of Liverpool in 2004, and follows their well-received debut Comings And Goings, released in 2000 on the Viper label. Time Out sang their praises thus: "Possessed of an irresistible spark, and enduringly wry, dry and pallid beauty. What truly sets them apart is Jacksons' spooked and spattered lyrical craft.
On this latest collection core members Dave Jackson, Becky Stringer (bass) and Greg Milton (guitar) are joined by keyboard player Peter Baker.
