The Alien Cowboys, a four-piece instrumental rock group, has released its first CD featuring all original material, highlighted by big singable melodies and driving rhythms crafted around tight musical arrangements. The band is made up of Bruce Stevenson on rhythm guitar, Ian Thompson on drums, Greg Jones on bass and Ralph Perucci on lead guitar. The band submitted an EP-length version of their CD, titled appropriately Alien Cowboys, with four songs. Each song is a standout, featuring brisk, high-energy grooves, soaring, timeless melodies and the icing on the cake for guitarists -- straight-from-the-gut, searing solos from Perucci's axe. Add stellar production and a great package and you've got a great rock record on your hands, certain to be noticed by an otherwise jaded rock press.
The Alien Cowboys first formed and began playing in the spring of 1997, when Bruce and Ian got together and began writing their original material at their Fremont studio. Six months later, veteran club and studio bassist Greg Jones joined to the complete the Alien Cowboys rhythm section. The trio then added New York studio whiz Ralph Perucci, who brought his explosive and distinctively melodic guitar style to round out the instrumental quartet and form the nucleus of the recording entity.
The Alien Cowboys have begun the marketing and sales push for their CD, offering the record in either a four song EP format, or a full-length (9 song) album. A full-color poster comes free with each CD.
