Back in the dark days of 80s depression, The Lonesome and Penniless Cowboys brought country music with a kick and colour to local venues wallowing in Morrissey and James. Somehow, it fitted right in… `Lonesome?'…`Penniless?'step right this way.

Now the ConDem Government time is right for a comeback. The Cowboys are Manc Hank Williams with the contrast turned to the max. It's forget yer blues and put on yer dancin' shoes music, with flying fiddles and a hoe down beat storming the lyrics, as The Thin Man, Clive Mellor and Mog defy the decades with timeless tunes.

The Cowboys define themselves as "probably the best band you've never seen" but anyone who was around Chorlton Irish Club back in the day will remember sweaty packed out nights and a rammed dancefloor.

"In the last decade the Cowboys have played an average of four gigs a year" they say "But, as none of us are getting any younger and, having narrowly missed the end of the world twice in recent times, we've decided to up the ante and play at least six gigs a year."

The first of those six gigs is at The Kings Arms tomorrow night (Sunday)... `Lonesome?'…`Penniless?'…step right this way…


The Lonesome and Penniless Cowboys
Sunday 3rd March 7:30pm £6
The Kings Arms
Bloom Street, Salford
