Their rather peculiar mix of rock'n'roll, rockabilly, Americana, blues, folk- and country elements the Beat Farmers called cowpunk. It is comparable a little bit to Jason & The Scorchers who were trying to conquer the market at practically the same time as the Beat Farmers. At that time, bands like Nine Pound Hammer from Kentucky or The Blasters were going in the similar direction. Just like The Blasters, the Beat Farmers came from the sun state California, more precisely: from San Diego.

Dick Montana and Jerry Raney had founded the band there in 1983; guitarist Bernard 'Buddy Blue' Seigal and bassist Rolle Love, both originating from the rockabilly band The Rockin' Roulettes, completed the quartet. One year later the first long player was released on Rhino Records.

In 1987 came the third album 'The Pursuit Of Happiness'. Meanwhile Bernard 'Buddy Blue' left the band, and Joey Harris joined in (former member of Country Dick Montana & The Snuggle Bunnies). Now the Beat Farmers were completely in the right lane. The album was more rock-heavy and punchy than its predecessor 'Van Go'. With 'Hollywood Hills' the band created their super track, and only the single 'Make It Last' was played by the American country radio stations. The buffalo on the cover became the bands new brand.

In early summer 1987 the Beat Farmers went on tour also in Europe. The concert at hand was recorded at the Bremen club 'Modernes' on May 29th.

Live the Beat Farmers had taken no prisoners for a long time. The band was loud, rock-heavy, dirty, snotty full of energy and in the mood to play. They were playing with punk and rockabilly attitudes but still playing homage to country music, nearly in the style of Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show.



Cowpunk nannten die Beat Farmers ihren doch recht eigentümlichen Mix aus Rock'n'Roll, Rockabilly, Americana, Blues, Folk- und Country-Elementen. Ein bisschen zu vergleichen mit Jason & The Scorchers, die fast zur gleichen Zeit wie die Beat Farmers versuchten, den Markt zu erobern. In eine ähnliche Richtung gingen damals auch Bands wie Nine Pound Hammer aus Kentucky oder die Blasters aus Los Angeles.

Wie die Blasters kamen die Beat Farmers auch aus dem Sonnenstaat Kalifornien, genauer gesagt: aus San Diego.

1983 hatten Dick Montana und Jerry Raney dort die Band gegründet, komplettiert wurde das Quartett durch den Gitarristen Bernard „Buddy Blue' Seigal und den Bassisten Rolle Love, beide von der Rockabilly-Band The Rockin‘ Roulettes. Ein Jahr später kam dann bereits auf Rhino Records der erste Longplayer „Tales Of The New West' in die Plattenläden.

1987 folgte das dritte Album „The Pursuit Of Happiness'. Bernard „Buddy Blue' hatte die Band inzwischen verlassen und Joey Harris (vorher schon bei Country Dick Montana & The Snuggle Bunnies) sprang ein. Nun waren die Beat Farmers vollends in der Spur. Das Album war rocklastiger und druckvoller als der Vorgänger „Van Go'. Mit „Hollywood Hills' hatte die Band ihre Übernummer geschaffen, lediglich die Singleauskopplung „Make It Last' wurde noch von den amerikanischen Country-Sendern gespielt. Der Büffel auf dem Cover wurde zum neuen Markenzeichen der Band.

Im Frühsommer 1987 gingen die Beat Farmers auch in Europa auf Tournee. Das vorliegende Konzert wurde am 29. Mai im Bremer „Modernes' aufgezeichnet.

Live machte die Band schon lange keine Gefangenen mehr. Die Band war laut, rockig, dreckig, rotzig, voller Elan und Spielfreude. Sie spielten gleichzeitig mit Punk- und Rockabilly-Attitüden und huldigten dennoch der Countrymusik, fast schon im Stil von Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show.
