A band primarily known for their adventurous guitar based instrumental albums, Alien Cowboys returned in 2008 with Words, a rock vocal album that keeps their musical standards high while breaking new ground. In better times, instrumental rock albums were considered a bold statement but these days are different and even the guitar-centric Alien Cowboys have something to say about living through these turbulent times. Guitarists Ralph Perucci (lead) and Bruce Stevenson (rhythm) share the vocal spotlight with solid support from Hugh Mason (vocals, bass) and drummer Ian Thomson keeping his famous beat steady. Anyone doubting the ability of an instrumental rock band to make a socially relevant and totally kick-ass CD filled with cool melodic hooks and adventurous production should give Alien Cowboys a good listen. Words will have you scratching you head thinking why didn't these guys try this kind of sound on disc earlier?
