The Governors / Bio

Throw out any cliché you want about The Governors; “not your average country band,” “not what you expect,” throw it all out. Whatever you're looking for you're going to find more. The Governors are Buck Owens at his wildest. Turned to 13. Gone to space and back again. Wild country future sounds. Whatever you're looking for you're going to find something else. They are not a throw-back. They are more than retro. It's like wild, stream-of-consciousness lyrics courtesy of Woody Allen. Spot on playing stretched out and rollicking; tighter than tight and driving. They were made to play together. Super, ultra heavy rhythm from Doug and Chris. Fevered tele twang from Joe. Madman straight steel by Ian that's way better than it has any business being. The Governors are time travelers and they've been both directions. The Governors violate Newton's Laws. They are forward and back. They are heavy and light, light and dark. They are the Martian Honky Tonkers. The Governors are one of the best country bands in Austin, TX and they don't even know it.
