    easy to drift off the map and reinvent yourself as part of the long lineage of creative cowboys who prefer psychotropics to rodeo riding guitars rather than firearms Old cowboy culture is alive and well in Texas says frontman Danny Lee Blackwell I grew up with Texan mythology all around us so as a band its instilled in our blood My Dad didn t wrangle steers but he did pick cotton when he was young But then cities like Austin and Dallas where we spent most of our time growing up have a real sense of musical history that runs deep so we feed off legacy that too From the Elevators and The Red Krayola on to pre ZZ Top band The Moving Sidewalks Butthole Surfers and The Black Angels whose record label Reverb Appreciation Society have released Night Beats and a clutch of other early cult bands besides Bubble Puppy Shiva s Headband and the Golden Dawn anyone Texas has always been a prime breeding ground for such outlaw music The Elevators were one of the reasons I decided to become a singer and form the group says Blackwell I loved their attempt to play R n B music but from a distinctly Texan approach I d say they have profoundly influenced the group but it s now our job to take it to another level in a new age It took a cross country relocation to instigate their formation Night Beats were born when frontman Danny Lee Blackwell upped stick from Dallas to Seattle Washington and was soon joined by childhood friend James Traeger James got me a copy of Ginsberg s Howl when I was around 15 and it changed everything remembers Blackwell of his old friend We grew up together and once he moved up to Seattle we did everything together there too I wanted to try out a different place a new city where no one knew my music and there wasn t anything remotely similar going on Coming from Dallas Austin seemed like the obvious choice but I needed something more Seattle was at one time the home to people we love like Ray Charles Jimi Hendrix and Quincy Jones so I didn t feel too disconnected The two existed initially as a guitar and drums duo named in honour of Sam Cooke s 1963 album Night Beat before fellow Jakob Bowden Dallas resident joined on bass after a stint in Austin Filtering a collective love of pioneering artists as disparate as Buddy Holly Fela Kuti Etta James James Brown and Leonard Cohen Night Beats dropped a clutch of singles split singles cassette release and two albums their self titled debut in 2011 followed by Sonic Bloom in 2013 as well as featuring on all manner of compilation albums that document the cutting edge of the head bending modern counter cultural US underground Night Beats hit the road too touring extensively with Roky Erickson The Zombies The Jesus and Mary Chain The Strange Boys
