November 24th (DATE CHANGE) at 8PM, the Inter-Media
Art Center (also known as “IMAC”) in
Huntington, Long Island will present a concert with alternative
rock group Cowboy Junkies.
Although it didn’t originally have anything to do with their sound, the Cowboy Junkies’ name wound up seeming pretty accurate: their music was grounded in traditional country, blues, and folk, yet drifted along in a sleepy, narcotic haze that clearly bore the stamp of the Velvet Underground. The vast majority of their songs were spare and quiet, taken at lethargic tempos and filled with languid guitars and detached, ethereal vocals courtesy of Margo Timmins. Over the late ‘80s and ‘90s, the group recorded a succession of critically acclaimed albums that found favor in the alternative rock community.
The Cowboy Junkies were founded by guitarist/songwriter Michael Timmins and bassist Alan Anton. They started jamming with Timmins’ brother Peter on drums, and in 1985 they recruited a vocalist in sister Margo, at the time a social worker who’d never sung publicly before. Their first widespread release was 1988’s The Trinity Session, which was recorded inside Toronto’s Holy Trinity church in the span of one night- using only one microphone. The Trinity Session became a cult hit, earning rave reviews from critics and substantial college radio airplay for tracks like “Misguided Angel” and their cover of “Sweet Jane”. Now an underground sensation, the Cowboy Junkies decided to concentrate more on Michael Timmins’ original materials for the bigger-budget follow-up, 1989’s The Caution Horses. 1992’s even more countrified Black Eyed Man found Timmins settling more comfortably into his songwriting voice, which set the stage for 1993’s Pale Sun, Crescent Moon- the record bore more influence from rock and blues, and returned the Junkies to critics’ darling status. The band released a new album called At the End of Paths Taken in the spring of 2007.
