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.

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.
