Genuine Cowhide showcases Austin guitarist/producer Dale X Allen as frontman-writer guitarist-vocalist burning his brand on a tangle of modern yet retro roots-americana styles; from shuffle-twostep swing-rockabilly into spaghetti western pop and desert instrumental themes from screenplays not yet written. Think BR-549 meets the Sons of the Pioneers in a dusty cowtown on Saturday night and buys ‘em a beer after a Sergio Leone triple feature. Their sophomore CD, “PAINT THE PONIES” (double d ranch tunes) is a modern vision of the future of traditional, modern and alternative Cowboy & Western music written and performed roots/pop style by a seasoned Texas roadhouse band that likes to tear it up once in a while. Rounding up some influences from legends John Fogerty and Doug Sahm, ‘40s cowboy singer Ray Whitley (he wrote “Back in the Saddle Again”), obscure hillbilly honkytonker Lattie Moore, the Beat Farmers, Ray Price, the Cherokee Cowboys, Junior Brown, Buck AND Hank (sorry, no seniors or juniors – just HANK by God), and of course, Ennio Morricone – all filtered through an episode of “Rawhide”; this is where the roundup begins with Genuine Cowhide!
