The Mad Cows
Post Modernist Bovine Smut Funk:
Born in a barn? No. Born in field. Am I Bovvered? Well known on the British Festival Circuit as "notorious party animals" and with various British Hollywood heart-throbs being spotted partying with them 'til the early hours of the morning, The Mad Cows can only be described as the Finest Funk in the field. Pumping out a melodic mix of folky funk and melodic mayhem, these guys combine audience participation and infectious grooves that will leave you asking yourself " Am I Bovvered?", "Does that Make me Lazy?" and "Hit Me Baby One More Time".
The Mad Cows will happily raise the roof of any event.
This band will bring to your event irresistible beats, unique humour and a mesmerising performance. Their collaborative musical talent is enhanced by the fact that half of them are brothers whose voices blend into enchanting harmony. The extraordinary lyrical talent and charisma of frontman Hamish has propelled this band to be well loved and well sort after. In 2009 they set off Glastonbury Festival with a bang at the backstage opening, they’ve enchanted crowds at prestigious auctions and shop openings and will glide through elegant gatherings (a particular occasion was at a French chateau when the pianist, surrounded by the playing band, was pushed around the guests playing the piano on a heavy goods trolley!).
If you want Hamish to tweak his songs to suit your event this is almost a given. One guarantee for sure is that The Mad Cows are a triumph and a favourite at any occasion.
"The Mad Cows crazy brand of originals and bastardised classics have been ‘gracing the festival scene for years’" (Charles Hazlewood, Radio 2).
In December 2007 The Mad Cows performed an amazing live BBC Radio 2 session with the reknowned British composer Charles Hazelwood who played keyboards on some their well known tracks such as "Healing Field Nazis" and "Lazy" and recording a few BBC Radio 2 jingles for Charles's Show.
In April 2009 they performed at an Exclusive Art Auction of the work of artist Kurt Jackson in support of WaterAid held at The Guardian News Room Kings Place, London. Kurt is the artist in residence at Glastonbury Festival from the 27th of June to the 29th to produce work that in the long run will be to raise funds for Wateraid.
As a result of this they were invited to perform an exclusive gig at the Greenpeace Stage at Backstage Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival 2009 with a festival opening speech from Michael Eavis himself followed by The Mad Cows and other guests.
In Novemeber 2012 the Dom Chambers on Sommer Valley Radio 'To Be Encouraged' conducted up close and personal interviews with members of the Cows.
