I was sitting at Lefty's a few weeks back and the subject of the upcoming show with the Wood Chickens came up and I said, "They're Cowpunk." This brought more than a few blank stares from those around me. A few of which I knew were fans of Nine Pound Hammer, Hank III, and the countless modern versions of Cowpunk. Yet this term meant not a thing. So, I moved on to naming bands, Blood on the Saddle and Tex and the Horseheads first came to mind followed by the Knitters. still nothing.
