Gay Cowboys In Bondage was a Broward County Florida band. They came together from other bands for a one time show. It was a live warehouse show, they did not have the name Gay Cowboys In Bondage that night. But after having so much fun decided to form the Gay Cowboys In Bondage. Their first studio project was a DIY cassette called "We're Not Gay, But the Music is" It has songs from the live warehouse show and studio recorded songs. The cassette went to # 1 on the WLRN Punk radio show " Off The Beaten Path" playlist, a show hosted by Bob Slade. Many College radio and independent, Public stations played their songs too.
From the cassette the Gay Cowboys In Bondage were asked and put on the very 1st Flipside ( From California ) compilation album. The Cassette & 7" E.P were given great critical review from Max R & R and complimented by Jello Biafra and the other Max R & R writers.
Owen Marshmallow Strikes Again, was the second studio project. Released 2 months before Ghostbusters was ever in theaters, it was easy to see that Owen was an original creation of the band. The band recorded and played live 1983-1985. They had one re-union show later.
The Gay Cowboys In Bondage were known for their total hyper crazy stage shows. They had college radio airplay through out the U.S. often meeting college students at their shows, while on Spring Break.
On the cassette inner sleeve is a photo of them playing in their High School Battle of the Bands. I am pretty sure they were a straight edge band, I know the lead singer was, I remember him telling me.
In sad news Guitarist and a strong creative member of the band Pete Moss has pasted away.
A big loss to the south Florida music community.
I was a big fan in the day.
Wholy crap! Went to see a documentry about Florida bands in the 80's and Milo from Gay Cowboys In Bondage was there. There were live bands after the movie. Milo went up on stage and sang Big Fat Baloney Sandwich with a super awesome band called Too Be Hated. He was pretty hyper, not as much as in the old days but hey we are all old now.
