Biography

A brilliant fusion of the Beatles, Squeeze, Guided By Voices, and some less obvious influences, Austin-based power poppers Cotton Mather are one of those rare power pop groups who transcend their inspirations to create powerful and original music of their own. The legendary indie rock outfit was founded by Robert Harrison of Austin, Texas in the early 1990s. What started as an experimental ... Read more in Amazon's Cotton Mather Store

Striving for a more live sound than on their UK debut album, Kontiki, this acclaimed Austin, Texas quartet have come up with a mini-album of delicious songs whose only downside is that it sounds more like a various artists compilation than the product of one band. "El Matador" oozes Elvis Costello-ish licks, "Baby Freeze Queen II" is so Lennon-ish that it could be a Double Fantasy out-take, and "Missing The Boat" is Bob Dylan played by The Ramones. That said, each of songwriter Robert Harrison's compositions is masterfully crafted and performed with an energy and emotional sincerity lacking in 99 per cent of contemporary rock. Even his 50's bobbysoxer ballad pastiche, "Dream Girl", is hard to resist, and the Byrdsy jangle of "Altar Boy" would sound great on any Del Amitri album. When Harrison finally settles on a style of his own, Cotton Mather deserve to be titanic. --Johnny Black

This little band from Austin Texas just keeps on coming! Really taking off in the UK after their fantastic second album Kontiki, this mini album captures Cotton Mather at their best - live. It feels like a small set from a live performance, and sounds as good to! So for anyone who has heard Cotton is King and Kontiki, this little gem simply MUST be with your CD collection.

This is a fantastic CD. Like a bite-sized chunk of Beatles-Oasis-The Who-influenced rock, it also reminds me of the feelgood vibes of the Fountain of Wayne. Well worth it!

im not a fan of US music, pick any american band and i could probably say ive never heard of them or they're crap. But then theres cotton mather, to be fair theryre not exactly breaking new ground, the beatles influence is strong yet welcome and this retro feel gives a comfortable introduction to in my opinion the best band to emerge from that continent since the beach boys.
the songs don't drag on, theres a definite veriety of styles in there, and it certainly suggests this band are going to be big. I look forward to Harrisons' next effort

Some great songs on this cool little stopgap 17 Dec. 1999
By Alex Wettreich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hotel Baltimore is a between-album release to placate the baying fanbase, but it's got some amazing songs on it. El Matador is my favorite -- it's an early-Costello-type 2 1/2 minute adrenalized melody blast that forces you to play air guitar, air bass and air drums at the same time. Missing The Boat is rockin' too, and Baby Freeze Queen II is gorgeous in a Spin My Wheels vein. And Altar Boy is a really fun song that gets stuck in your head for days on end. It reminds me of Costello too, but this time lyrically -- it's got that casually dismissive vibe about it, and uses little observations to draw a portrait of a person. Anyway, the whole thing is excellent, get it. And also check out the unofficial CM site at come.to/cottonmather

Our Before and After 30 May 2000
By CKL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The seven songs on this ultimately satisfying little EP play like a series of outtakes, although it's anyone's guess whether anything here is from the KONTIKI (1997) era or from sessions for the new album which is eleged to be completed and awaiting a record deal and/or the right moment. (With the noted exception of the herculean efforts of Alex at the Manchurian site, information from the Cotton Mather camp is otherwise a little tough to come by!) This disc has no real thematic or structural thread other than bandleader Robert Harrison's voice and, of course, the great tunes!
"Lost My Motto" isn't a big departure from the original (from COTTON IS KING (1994)). It has a slightly harder edge and clocks in at a minute shorter. "Altar Boy (Jimbo's Theme)" would have fit quite well on KONTIKI. "Missing the Boat" is a wall-of-fuzz full-tilt rocker. "John Wayne Jung" is a great instrumental built around a sinister organ line and guitar feedback. There's also a sublime cover of Arthur Alexander's "Dream Girl", a sixties (I think) ballad reminiscent of the first three-quarters of "The End Of The Line" (from COTTON IS KING).
The EP is performed by the newest lineup of the band which has recently been touring in England: besides Harrison (vocals, guitar) and the dependable Whit Williams (guitar, vocals), there's Josh Gravelin (bass) and Dana Mizer (drums). Williams and Mizer also supported Harrison on KONTIKI.
(Total Disc Time: 16:31)
