I’ve heralded the righteous shenanigans of Bloodcow before ’round these parts, but well, it’s been a while. Lo and behold, the Midwestern riff-monger five-piece — now reportedly based in Council Bluffs, Iowa, having relocated from Omaha, Nebraska — have a new album in the pipe called Crystals and Lazers, and I have a brand new excuse to dig on their asskicking antics. Five (frickin’) years have passed since the band unleashed their third album, Bloodcow III: Hail Xenu, and one can only imagine that in that time, they’ve grown up, settled down, started to take themselves all seriously and whatnot.
Not if the track “Little Chromosome” (or this picture) is anything to go by. The band posted it up on on their ReverbNation page and guitarist J.J. Bonar sent it my way for checking out. Dig this verse:
They called him father and they also called him dad
They killed him while he slept in a tent
Mocking his dead body, they shot it up with a machine gun
The money in his wallet was spent
I don’t know about you, but there’s little more I could ask of rock and roll than that. Bloodcow currently list themselves as the aforementioned Mr. Bonar alongside fellow guitarist 1987, bassist Navin, drummer Run DMFC and The Corporate Merger on vocals. Whilst I anxiously await more info on the forthcoming Crystals and Lazers, consider yourself encouraged to check out the all-too-sensible nonsense of “Little Chromosome” on the player below:
Here is the Music Player. You need to installl flash player to show this cool thing!
To keep up with Bloodcow as best as any mere human being could possibly hope to do so, start by looking them up on Thee Facebooks. Follow that by harassing Crustacean Records at their website, and you should be well on your way to enlightenment or whatever it is they call it when you fall over because the room won’t stop spinning.
