Winnipeg
. CONTENTS * 1 History * 2 Band members * 3 Discography * 4 References HISTORYIn four years spanning 2002-2007, The Horribly Awfuls made four full-length records and one EP which is yet to be released. Led by songwriter Gareth Williams , the Awfuls were known for their loose and rough feel and for their witty and evocative lyrics. Band members changed from project to project, as did their roles in the band. The core of the band was made up of Gareth Williams , Tyler Shipley (also of The Consumer Goods ) and Matt McLennan (also of Cone Five ). No album ever took longer than one studio session to record, and the musicians often improvised their parts. Ryan McVeigh , who produced four of their five records, was always credited as being part of the band, and his influence can be heard in most of their work

COWPUNK (or COUNTRY PUNK) is a subgenre of punk rock that began in the UK and California in the late 1970s and early 1980s. It combines punk rock or new wave with country , folk , and blues in sound, subject matter, attitude, and style. Many of the musicians in this scene have now become associated with alternative country or roots rock . CONTENTS * 1 History * 2 List of bands * 3 See also * 4 References * 5 Bibliography HISTORYA 1984 New York Times article on the emerging aesthetic acknowledged cowpunk as one of several catch-all terms critics were using to categorize the country-influenced music of otherwise unrelated punk and New Wave bands.

The Consumer Goods
THE CONSUMER GOODS was a Canadian indie rock /pop band originally from Winnipeg , Manitoba . Their politically charged music earned both praise and contempt, and made them controversial figures in the Canadian indie rock scene in the 2000s. Between 2005 and 2012, they released four records and scored two significant hits including "…Sam Katz," a polemic against Winnipeg's mayor that went into heavy rotation on local radio, much to Sam Katz 's embarrassment, and "Hockey Night in Afghanada," an anthemic call for the separation of hockey and war-mongering that "managed to thoroughly embarrass the folks at CBC Sports when they submitted the song to CBC's contest to replace the Hockey Night In Canada Theme." The band also toured Canada extensively, appeared on the cover of Uptown Magazine , charted in over 50 independent radio stations in Canada and the US, and were nominated for two awards (including one of CBC 's annual listener-selected "Bucky Awards ")
