Cowboy Mouth -Cowboys and Indians LP (Throbbing Lobster #13) 1985: David Liechtenstein, son of the late pop-art icon Roy Liechtenstein, was determined not to let anyone know about that. So as Dave Laredo, he made sure that even the cover photo was discreetly credited to "Dad?" Anyway, he was a really nice guy who wrote really cool, twisted, twangy cow-pop songs with a wistful pre-adolescent sense of awe and potential, then twisted them some more with a temperamental antique Roland synthesizer that had to be patiently warmed up but not too warm or it wouldn't play on-key. We had a dozen commercial FM stations playing "Hurricane" and the band was on tour headlining a Friday night in Chicago... when they had a disastrous quarrel and broke up. Adding insult to injury, Stiff Records had signed them and picked up the album but they needed us to spend a bunch more money remixing and remastering it... and then Stiff folded.
(In a weird little bit of synchronicity, however, it turns out that Mike and Myke from Screaming Urge were playing in Cowboy Mouth when they cut the original demos).
