Listen to Episode 52 with Vigilante Cowboys!

Boiling up from the New York and New Jersey music scene from the 1980s there is no way this group of musicians could not have met to form this band.

Here we dive into any number of rabbit holes ...

- Guitars and amps

- NYC/NJ clubs of the 1980s

- Hoping that the audience doesn't mistake the band for a much younger band's parents.

- The NY/NJ scene

- NJ food of the 1980s

-Gas prices

- The beginning of the Reagan presidency

- Some of the past, and most of the future

Vigilante Cowboys are a band that skates the line between post-punk and rock and roll. They can't define it, but they know it when they hear it!

Listen to Five Easy Pieces!

"Born from an existential argument between the modernists and postmodernists, I have found my home with the post-punks and those who love a good slice of pizza. I live in a world of art in the age of mechanical reproduction and the ever-elusive decisive moment. Punctum and Stadium aside, I like to take photographs of people and things to see how they look photographed. While I miss CBGBs, I think Asbury Park is as close as we are ever going to get to making punk whatever we make it to be. The future is unwritten and I owe it all to Mr. Bradley and Mr. Martin. Let us now praise famous men and ask the little prince for his thoughts. Sometimes I'm on the road, but If it wasn’t for the honor of the thing, I’d rather walk. My loving wife supports this albatross of an obsession and my kids put up with me well. BA, MFA, M.Ed., BCEA, Tri-X, and Nikon"
