FestivaLink.net presents Thrift Store Cowboys at Taos Solar Music Festival, NM 6/29/07
Who knows why so many great songwriters come from Lubbock TX? Is it the absence of all forms of distraction? This band plays what's been called "quaalude country," with slower rhythms that underscore their exceptional songwriting. They're a favorite of the Taos audience - could it be the saw-playing and glockenspiel?
With open, haunting music reminiscent of the desolate west Texas sky, Lubbock based Thrift Store Cowboys have captivated audiences from coast to coast with their dark, subtle lyrics and a blending of soaring violin draped against bottom-ended guitar and pedal steel sounds that spaghetti Western composer Ennio Morricone might envy. Following in the unique footsteps of a Lubbock legacy started by Buddy Holly, The Flatlanders, and Terry Allen, Thrift Store Cowboys add their own modern influences and flavor to the already rich musical heritage.
Colt Miller (guitar, accordian, banjo, hammond)
Clint Miller (bass)
Kris Killingsworth (percussion, glockenspiel)
