About this item
Cowboy Flying Saucer (CFS) release their second album, Travel Lodge’, on their own Sparrowhawk Records imprint. The follow up their 2017 eponymous debut LP, the album tells the tale of a moment in singer BK13’s past; of days lost in a hotel after a wedding; of things that were witnessed both imagined and real ...
“I arrived at Travel Lodge, meant to be here only one night, it's been a week, I'm still here! Outside my window, stories were being told, some sinister, some happy, some sad, some filthy. I was only here for one night. IT'S BEEN A WEEK. A Travel Lodge wedding."
Formed as a result of a conversation about T shirts in a Walthamstow pub sometime in 2014, CFS have built cult status. Influenced by the likes of Can, The Fall, Sleaford Mods, Pere Ubu, Captain Beefheart, Happy Mondays, John Cooper Clarke and Spacemen 3, theirs is a distinct sound that encompasses psychedelia, techno, krautrock, ambient electronica, punk, post-punk, funk, dub, spoken word and disco. Drawing on these disparate styles and influences, CFS have improvised their way on BBC 6music, Resonance FM, and a list of podcasts, streams and FM broadcasts across the UK and Europe. Embracing life's "happy accidents", CFS live in the moment; for them there is no script or style guide, just spontaneous, creative moments in time to be captured and occasionally revisited.
‘Travel Lodge’ was recorded live at The Sickroom over an intense two-day period with editing and production carried out back home in Walthamstow, and with it’s impending release CFS are currently organising shows and activities.
