The Lonesome and Penniless Cowboys

In the dark and dismal early 80s, before you were born and when Britain was still in black and white, 3 men had a vision, a dream and indeed a calling. Somehow, The Thin Man, Clive Mellor and Mog decided it was their life's vocation to make people love country music.

Since the rebirth of The Cowboys at the start of 2013, things have been eventful to say the least, they've played in a cave, a Lad's club and a Tiki Bar. The band owned The Kings on Sunday nights and the Klondyke on Thursdays. They dressed in style for Clive and Hazel's wedding, soundtracked a short film at Sounds From The Other City and even made it over to Sheffield. Along the way they also managed to pick up some fine auxiliary Cowboys and had some very special friends playing along.
