Park of Chicago came in to record a song (for his
wife's birthday. How sweet!) Joon has been playing guitar and singing
since childhood and in the last few years started to write songs
as well. This is his first foray into recording and with the help
of the production staff here at The Cow, we turned his acoustic
guitar demo into a full on radio ready release. Joon played
Damien Thorne started
recording their heavy metal full length rock album here at The
Cow. Damien Thorne has been together for years and was on Roadrunner
Records back in the day. Now they are primarily a studio band making
only the occasional performance on tours to Germany where fans
young and old scramble for autographs. The band has made crossroads
in their genre playing lightning fast guitar solos, double kik
rhythms and bumpin' bass lines. Members include Ken Mandant (guitar),
Rick Browz (bass), Mike Browz (drums), Mike (the temporary singer).

Longtime Cow favorite Gary
Landess made two stops into the studio last month and
has been working on a cover of the Jim Croce tune “Rapid
Roy”. Incidentally, Gary’s version is notably less rapid,
bringing down the tempo to create a more blues shuffley feel. Gary played
guitar, drums, harmonica and sang, and, on his second session for “Rapid
Roy”, brought in expert bassist Kevin Mayes to provide low-end.
Kevin’s been playing bass for several decades now, performing with
the likes of the Artist Everybody Still Calls Prince and many more. To
learn more about Gary’s music, or to check out some of his most
choice cover art, go to www.garylandess.com.

JOKE OF THE MONTH
A city man was tooling
down a country road when his car sputtered to a complete stop near
a field filled with cows. The driver, getting out to see what was
the matter, noticed one of the cows looking at him. "I believe it's your radiator," said
The man nearly jumped
right out of his city slicker britches! He ran to the nearest farmhouse
and knocked on the door. "A cow just
gave me advice about my car!" he shouted, waving his arms franticly
back toward the field.
The farmer nonchalantly
leaned out beyond the door frame to glance down the field. "The cow with two big black spots on it?" the
farmer asked slowly.
"Yes! Yes! That's the one!" the
excited man replied.
"Oh. Well, that's Ethel," the farmer said, turning back to
the man. "Don't pay any attention to her. She doesn't know a thing
