Tonight at The Musician: The Drugstore Cowboys + Empress Of Fur and Jim Hammond (The Borderlines)

The Drugstore Cowboys
Friday 16th August
plus Empress Of Fur and Jim Hammond (The Borderlines)
Leicester’s rockabilly pioneers The Drugstore Cowboys were formed in 1997, and have since then taken their brand of smokin’ country roadhouse rockabilly to many a spit and sawdust pub, venue and festival all over the UK and Europe. Nick Whitfield (guitar) Tom Bull (upright bass) and Damon Clarridge (drums) have just released the long awaited third Cowboys album ‘All Tooled Up’ on Smokin Records. Expect the unexpected and a high energy show from the rowdy roots rockers!

Empress Of Fur are a freaky four-piece from Fenland farming country, who in their own words look like the bastard offspring of an unholy four-way bunk-up between Bettie Page, Zorro, Uncle Fester and Mr Macphisto. They sound like the equally unwanted children of the Cramps, Link Wray, Nancy Sinatra and the Rezillos! Gretsch guitars drenched in reverb and echo, strange hallucinatory voodoo beats, heartbeat bass and siren vocals: that's Empress of Fur!

Remember; always check with the venue before travelling:
