KICKING UP MORE DUST THAN A TORNADO IN THE SAHARA, DANIEL, ROBERT, PATRIK AND PETER ARE THE SPACE COWBOYS - THE LATEST AND POSSIBLY THE GREATEST BAND TO BLAST THEIR WAY OUT OF GOTHENBURG SWEDEN.
Way back at the end of `96 these three wayward teenage miscreants inspired by their collection of Motorhead, Ramones, Kiss, Iggy and The Stooges and Dead Boys records picked up their guitars.
Three years later claims seemed less outrageous when they released their first E.P. “Striptease” - four slabs of high octane teenage energy and aggression - these boys meant business. The international circuit of punk rock`n`roll labels and `zines was soon buzzing about THE SPACE COWBOYS as labels in the U.S.A., Australia, Spain, France and Austria all dived in and made releases by the band - all of which sold out or went to re-pressings very quickly.
Labels were well aware of what the band was up to and a plan was hatched to offer the band the chance to release their debut full length album - the deal was quickly done and meanwhile the band continued to build its worldwide fanbase that saw last years singles “Straight To Hell” (Pitshark Records / France) and “Alright Now, Get Ready” (Glazed Records / U.S.A.) both get 4K reviews from Kerrang and the latter also found its way onto John Peels radio show.
Their “Rollin` Sixes” mini-album (Safety Pin Records / Spain) also received great reviews from Kerrang, Metal Hammer and Rocksound here in the U.K. and throughout mainland Europe they were creating the same sort of clamour at their live shows as fellow Swedes The Hives, The Peepshows and Puffball.
“HIGH ENERGY RACE” is an album so hot it will blister paint - its fast, raw and almost untamed primordial rock`n`roll with a nod in the direction of Detroit mixed with that plundering Viking edge they share with so many of their countrymen. Their youth brings a new edge to “the old dog” people said could not learn any new tricks - rock`n`roll has discovered a whole new set of thrills, energy and passion and THE SPACE COWBOYS have them all.
...and now they're back with Dead End Streets and Devil's Night in 2006
