|Oz Rock Forgotten: Sacred Cowboys Trouble from Providence|
Over the past couple of weeks, I've come into contact with both Mark Ferrie and Garry Gray of the Sacred cowboys, so expect updates to this page fairly shortly in the near future.
I've also been corrected on a "mountain top"
(misheard lyric). In the passage below, the "service man"
is actually a "sinless man"....
Something's stirring in the firmament
One service man
Great lyrical passages. Impressive cover. Like the Ripe track, this was another song I got to know better off the 3rrr promo-cart than hearing the track itself. But when seeing this single at Collector's Corner in 1989-90, I had to grab it.
With slack arse guitar, euro-synth melody and monotone delivery you get a sure fire Grant classic, and thus a worthy addition to this hallowed list.
