Cowboy Sally's Twilight Laments For Lost Buckaroos
She's from Leeds, England. She lives in Chicago, Illinois. She's in the legendary punk band The Mekons. On her most recent solo album, she sings gorgeous country music. Go figure. Or not. Just listen to her sad, silky voice as it glides over songs like Johnny Cash's "Cry Cry Cry" or her own "Sweetheart Waltz." In an interview in The High Hat, Timms says " I like singing well-written songs that tend toward the depressive, so country can be a mine of those." Keep mining, Sally, and bring us more beautiful albums like this.
