With a sound as gritty as the dust devils of their homeland, HOSS was formed in Ft Collins, CO over a decade ago by southwest Kansas natives Tommy Ray (vox/bass) and Michael Damn Brown (guitars & illegal fireworks). Though there have been some lineup changes and hiatuses over the years, the band has been a staple on the Colorado rock & roll scene.
The current lineup is rounded out with Ian Webb on drums and Ernie Sanchez on guitar. Their music plays homage to the rock gods these country boys were raised on: Kiss, AC/DC, Motorhead, and many other staples of the Headbangers Ball era.
Armed with hot licks, drumsticks, and guitar picks, HOSS is a brutal onslaught of loud fast rock and roll, pausing occasionally to take a shot of whiskey. When these cowboys come to your town the blood will fly and the ladies will cry.
The above mp3s are from the NEWLY RELEASED album "Nightsnake". 11 tracks were recorded at the Blasting Room Studios in Fort Collins, Colorado. The album was engineered and mixed by the now infamous Jason Livermore. The mastering honors were performed by Ian Webb's brother (and former band mate) Malcolm Webb.
