Cowboys and Indian rock away genre stereotypes

It’s refreshing to have your stereotypical notions obliterated by other humans. That’s what happened to me when I interviewed Cowboys and Indian guitarist Gerome Fragua and upright bassist Matthew Ezzard. Expecting fashion-rockabilly cats, I was pleasantly surprised to spend some time gabbing with two intelligent, open-minded, funny and musically diverse dudes who care more about rehearsing than futzing around with Dapper Dan’s pomade.

In the article, Playing Cowboys and Indian, I noted that drummer Jeff Cooper couldn’t make the interview because he was on the road as a short-haul truck driver, but I neglected to explain the other members’ day jobs. Fragua serves as the music director for Paragon Church, a Southern Baptist church in Rio Rancho. The band has even played there. Ezzard is currently immersed in his final semester of fire science studies at CNM and hopes to become a structural firefighter.

Music to Your Ears

Greased Up

It’s the child of country and Western and rhythm and blues, the hell-raising brother of rock and roll. Rockabilly roared into its own in the mid-’50s. Its rise was propelled by Sun Records owner Sam Phillips and his work with Elvis, which essentially repackaged a black sound for a white audience. Sixty years later, outfits here in Albuquerque keep that music alivethe acoustic slap bass, the electric guitar twang and the big, jumping beat.

Rockabilly Blowout

The Alibi’s Group Hug greases up

This month, Alibi Group Hug is celebrating that rebellious marriage of early rhythm and blues with country and Western music. Despite being a nascent form of rock and roll, rockabilly, and its wild, raw, reverberating energy, has endured for six decades. On Saturday, an assembly of New Mexico’s most rockabilly-est citizens will provide their sonic services at the Launchpad.
