Sweetheart of the Whorehouse (2007)

An intersection of (drunk) country, surf and psychedelic sounds. Planned as an exercise in minimalism.

You Can Lead A Horse To A Bar Stool (2008)

Psychedelic Country. A lo-fi, red wine fueled (Killer Juice!) experiment. As is usually the case, the original intention was to record a country record. Didn't end up that way.

Satan's Savages Original Motion Picture Sound Track (2010)

The soundtrack lp for an imaginary biker flick called, Satan's Savages. Wyatt has seen every damned biker movie known to man and is actually writing a book on the subject (he says it's "half done.") He served as our consultant.

Cosmic American West

BIOGRAPHY

With the release of 1973ís Closing Time, Cosmic American West abruptly went from a moderately successful acid-rock band to one of country musicís most ignored acts. The recording, in fact, remained out of Billboardís Top 200 album chart longer than any other release in history. Along with 1979ís Too Drunk to Care, it established the band as purveyors of a distinctively dark vision. Experimenting with concept albums and studio technology and breaking free of conventional country song formats, Cosmic American West prefigured the progressive country of the Seventies and cosmic-country-space-music of the Eighties.
