Dave McCormack and COW

Bazzil from the most wonderful Prehistoric Sounds blog
has sent me this rare and fantastic cassette to post.
Many thanks to Bazzil, now get over to his blog now
if you haven't seen it. Here

This is what he has to say about this

It's a cassette of David McCormack's old Band COW.
I got this off a chap I worked with years ago.
I remember seeing them play one night at a
Spanish restaurant in Little Edward Street
in the 90s, back when I was living up
the road in Spring Hill.

It was a great night, lots of sangria,
beer and Spanish food.

That sounds like a great night!
I saw COW myself at some Livid festival, They were backing
Robert Forster and did the most brilliant extended version of
Danger in the Past.

COW - which stood for Country Or Western. Also featured
Glenn Thompson (Custard/The Titanics/Go-Betweens)
and producer extraordinaire Robert Moore, as well as about
a dozen other people! COW released one CD, called Beard,
in 1995. In 2006, Dave and Robert Moore collaborated on
a new COW single called "The Chicken Dance" featuring
Rob Hurst of Midnight Oil fame on drums.
There were only 50 copies produced.
They are hard to get.

Hi mate,
