Skol Bandeleros

Anthony Conway writes: "The Skol Bandeleros formed in the early 1980's and performed their unique fushion of country and alternative rock in various venues around Manchester including the International, Gallery, Free Trade Hall, Boardwalk, Band on the Wall , Manchester University and the Red Admiral. Band members - Cow Pat - Lead Vocals Suzy Two Shoes - Rythm Guitar, Keyboards and Vocals Hank Butch - Lead Guitar Tex Rattlesnake - Drums Curly Bodine - Bass (Albiet usually very quiet) A typical set would see the band perform some of their classics including Stockport Roads BMX Bandits Country Girl Rope to Hang Him Working my way back to Jesus The Grand Ole US of A My Eyeballs Blind Often food would be cooked live on stage (Hotdogs and Blueberry pie) indeed a small fire was started at The International after some particularily frantic line dance moves from Cowpat resulted in knocking over the primus stove. Luckily the doggies were saved!! The band finally split n the late 80's to pursue solo projects none of which seemed to capture the fire and originality of their earlier collective works."
