The Lazy Cowgirls - Radio Cowgirl

Because the band had created such a name for themselves as a dynamic and vibrant live act, it seemed natural to put out a "live" album, and with an appearance at KCSB Santa Barbara resulting in some high quality recordings, this was the result. There are also some "live in the studio" tracks recorded at Present Time Studios, both with the original band and with a line-up including Len Keringer (Creamers/Marlowes) and Johnny Esposipo on bass and drums (as bonus tracks for the CD).

The set list here includes plenty of originals and tons of cool covers, ranging from the Ramones' "Carbona, Not Glue", the Saints' "Know Your Product", 50's rocker "Slow Down", the theme from "Green Acres", "Heartache", 13th Floor Elevators "You're Gonna Miss Me" (before everyone in the world started covering it - and pretty damn manical), the Dolls' "Who Are the Mystery Girls". Jerry Lee's "Crazy Arms", the Kinks' "This is Where I Belong" and lots more - all done in the high-energy Cowgirls' style. Of course, there are some super originals, as well: Lose'n Your Mind", "Meat Shop", "Mr. Screwdriver", "Goddam Bottle", "The Long Goodbye", to name a few.

Hey, it's the Cowgirls, it's high-quality high-energy! You should own all of their releases!
