Cowboy Killers - Punkers Look Like Jerks From Outer Space!

This time out I've got some more fast, melodic HC from the U.K.  Here is the early discography of Wales' Cowboy Killers.  Formed in the late 80s, these guys were heavily influenced by U.S. bands like Flag of Democracy and Dead Kennedys.  Their speedy tracks featured melodic leads and their singer Beddis' trademark Jello Biafra-esque wails.  This collection CD compiles their first two Lps, a couple of compilation songs and their demo.  Included amongst the tracks is a great cover of the Feeders' "Jesus Entering From the Rear" if that gives you more of a clue where they were coming from. 

Cowboy Killers had a few more releases after those chronicled on this disc - a couple of 7"ers, a live album titled "Thank You, Fuck You And Goodnight" and one final studio Lp called "Dai Laughing."  I may get around to posting some of the later material sometime... though it's not as vital as this early stuff.  Get this great disc at the link below!

  1. Just found your blog and came across this. Great band from Wales who I loved and saw live only the once. I think the description "The Welsh Dead Kennedy's" suits them fine. Great blog mate and has brought back some great memories for me.
