On April 5th Cowboy Flying Saucer (CFS) are to release their second album, Travel Lodge’, on their own Sparrowhawk Records imprint. The follow up their 2017 eponymous debut LP, the album tells the tale of a moment in singer BK13’s past; of days lost in a hotel after a wedding; of things that were witnessed both imagined and real …

“I arrived at Travel Lodge, meant to be here only one night, it’s been a week, I’m still here! Outside my window, stories were being told, some sinister, some happy, some sad, some filthy. I was only here for one night. IT’S BEEN A WEEK. A Travel Lodge wedding.”

Singer, wordsmith, poet and yodeller Bobby, aka BK13, first met polymath-renascence-artist-bass player-musical Swiss army knife, Spanna at Art school in the North East before moving to London and forming art punk, synth driven electro groove band PLAKKA, a regular installment on the East London gig and party scene at the end of the noughties. DJ, producer, label owner, artist, sound designer, video game producer and Guitarist Johnny Ven’s first band, Idiot Joy, were erratic and random but enjoyed success on the festival scene, playing Glastonbury and supporting space rock overlords Hawkwind. 


Dave B‘s first musical adventure was as drummer for Magoo, whose pedigree as lo-fi Indie pioneers is well documented. Championed by John Peel and recording several Peel sessions, they released two albums on Glasgow label Chemical Underground. Dave and Johnny first met in 2000 playing together in punk-funk groovers, Junkateer. In 2014 they collided with BK13 and Spanna to form Cowboy Flying Saucer.
