King Dude aka Thomas Jefferson Cowgill sees his CDr-only release of “Tonight’s special death” (2010) re-released in re-mastered quality and including a number of bonus-tracks. The re-release is available on CD and on vinyl right here. The vinyl comes with an LP-sized inlay, including all lyrics of all 10 tracks, packaged inside black poly-inner sleeve.
King Dude is an American Seattle based dark folk / neo-folk project trademarked by the singer’s deep voice. The lyrics often deal with death as well as pain. The project has often been compared to Johnny Cash’s music. Apart from Cowgill we also find August Johnson, Tosten Larson and Lee Newman in the band’s line-up.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
