Biografie

Ten Years ago there was a sonic ripple (sort of near Katybut not really) in the otherwise peaceful universe of Houston, Texas. A quartet of dashing young men took the stage claiming to be the Houston Astros. Unbeknownst to them, that name had already been taken. So, they settled for the logical „next best thing“ the Galactic Cowboys.

In 1990, they signed with DGC (Geffen) and released two critically acclaimed CD’s, Galactic Cowboys self-title (1991) , and Space In Your Face (1993). In 1995, the band moved to Metal Blade Records and recorded Machine Fish (1996) followed by the EP, Feel The Rage, also released in 1996 (which included covers by Paul McCartney’s Wings and Kiss). The Horse That Bud Bought (1997) followed these releases. In the Spring of ‘98 the Cowboys began recording again, which brings us to the new CD, At The End Of The Day.

At The End Of The Day was recorded at Sunflower Studios, the Cowboys’ private studio in Houston, TX. It was produced, engineered, and mixed by drummer Alan Doss. Alan even sings lead vocal on one of his compositions This is a first). It is a wonderful album, full of great sounds, cool changes, massive, gruntworthy riffs, and truly spectacular songwriting. It is by far their best work to datea masterpiece. It is, of course, still chock full of their twisted marriage of blistering guitar hooks and „super-sugar-crisp-pop“ songcraft But this new CD has something extra special.

    These guys put on three of the greatest live shows I ever saw. I'm rediscovering them after many years. Wish they were still together, and wish I hadn't been such a fair weather fan when they were.

    Epi - They're definitely a Christian act. The thing is - they also happen to write very intelligent lyrics, which may be why the Christian element isn't glaringly obvious. I'm non-Christian & fairly liberal, but it's hard not to appreciate the clever wit of some of their lyrics -- take "Hey Mr", for instance, which ruthlessly satirizes Bill Clinton with extreme precision.

    Most (or all) bandmembers are christians so it would be logical that their lyrics are (as galacticredskin said) in some way influenced by their faith. The lyrics don't have to be preachy to be christian.

    The Christian angle is in some of their songs, if you don't see it anywhere maybe you need to read the lyrics!

    if these guys are christians, they don't write about in thier songs... not sure why people are tagging them that way.

    Good description, and in turn I often describe Kings X as the Beatles meets Metallica - only not exactly! But they are as ethereal as tThe Beatles and as heavy as Metallica in their own way!
