The London Cowboys was a punk band formed by punk renegades Steve Dior and Barry Jones, formerly of The Idols in the 1980s.The band was somewhat of an enigma and although these two remained (pretty) constant and wrote the material they were joined by a constant succession of other artists in the revolving roster.These included Glen Matlock from the Sex Pistols,Terry Chimes & Tony James, Phil Lewis and Gerry Laffy from Girl, Jerry Nolan from the New York Dolls, also Alan D'alvarez (reportedly of Scotland yard's D10 section) and a dozen other less notable players.
They recorded several albums including "Animal Pleasure", "Tall in the Saddle", and "On stage" a live album. There was a fourth album 'in the can' recorded under the working title "Whip It Out" which, although never formally released, spawned the single "Dance Crazy/Bleed Me". This featured the last real incarnation of the band - Steve Dior, Barry Jones, Gerry Laffy, Alan D'Alvarez and Jerry Nolan.
After leaving the London Cowboys , Alan D'Alvarez briefly joined London pseudo punk rockers Better Than You before returning to obscurity. After the Cowboys Steve formed a band called Filthy Lucre which recorded a Album "Pop Spear" and appeared on the Johnny Thunders Tribute CD along with Jeff Dahl, Dogs, Cosa Nostra Band, Bebe Buell, Barry Jones, Jet Boys, Syl Sylvain.Steve Dior now plays in The Delinquents.
Barry is now living in LA .
As usual , Max did a good work with the sleeve !!!
