Crooks bring new life to the outlaw styles of their predecessors. Josh Mazour and bandmates have been working hard and earning a name for themselves in Austin. This foursome released its follow up EP, titled, "Lonesome, Rowdy, and Restless" just after their 2010 SXSW performance with Wanda Jackson. And their roadhouse style is certainly catching on.
With flourishing trumpet melodies remeniscent to that of a lost Ennio Morricone score, and vocals harkening back to the days of Hank Williams Sr., Crooks sit comfortably atop of the barstoool. After a few drinks and an evening with these guys, you will no doubt leave feeling a little "Lonesome, Rowdy, and Restless" yourself!
The fellas will head back to Premium Studios in Austin, TX to begin work on their second full-length following the SXSW 2011.
