Johnny Dowd
“Imagine if Hank Williams had mutated into Captain Beefheart, acquiring a bunch of primitive electronic equipment along the way, and you’ll get some idea of where Johnny Dowd is at...Gloriously deviant.“ - The Independant (UK)
“It’s weird, uncompromising and, compared with anything I’ve heard this millennium, certainly unique...beatnik rock, poetry, prose, jazz rock, rap, screaming metal guitar, retro pop, spoken word and country noir.” - MOJO
“There’s nobody quite like Johnny Dowd, a dapper Texan absurdist...like Charles Bukowski backed by a jazz-country funk shuffle...putting to shame artists half his age.” - Uncut
Born 29 March 1948 in Fort Worth, Texas, the legend of Dowd runs deep and far afield.
And at 70-years-old, he's finally playing the Horseshoe.
