Press Release Summary = # 28 On Roots Music Report \"The Gousters\"

Press Release Body = Hi Folks:
I was very gratified to see \"The Gousters\" climb to the 28th spot on Roots Music
Report on 4-12-06. My song writing partner Zander Schloss and I want to tell you a
little about how we came together. I met Zander on the set of a now cult film called
\"Repo Man\" by Alex Cox. Zander played the part of \"Kevin\" opposite Emilio Estevez\'
character \"Otto.\" Harry Dean Stanton had the lead role. Zander went on to writing
many of the soundtracks for Alex on \"Sid & Nancy\" and \"Straight to Hell\" writing
with Joe Strummer on that film. I videotaped the auditions.
He is also the bass player for \"The Circle Jerks\' a founding punk band in
Los Angeles. I reunited with Zander when he rented the studio apt over my
garage and thus began our collaboration on \"The Gousters\" five years in
the making. We spent three years in the basement and two years at Brian
Susko\'s Westside Recorder Studio in Santa Monica. It was there that
musician friends helped lay down the lush violin backgrounds heard on a
number of the songs and other tracks.
Three of the songs are from Zander\'s former band \"Low & Sweet Orchestra\"
with James Fearnely of \"The Pogues\" on accordion and Dermot Mulrooney, now
an actor. The band was dropped with a few hundred other artists from
Interscope Records during the late 90\'s culling. I feel very fortunate to
have had the opportunity to work with Zander.
I\'m a Vietnam Veteran with Post-Traumatic Stress having served as a Navy
Corpsman (medic) with a Marine platoon in Vietnam in 1970.
It is our wish to find ( or be found) by a label and establish a
publishing deal. We are the only band listed on Roots Music Report with a
Demo CD. Running Times Music commented: \"It\'s almost unheard of but hope
this is an indicator of the Indies being taken more seriously.\"I hope we
will continue to get more airplay and the consideration of someone in the
business to take a good hard \"listen\" to what we have accomplished so

Thanks for listening,
Walt Cronin ( music available on site ) ( please request our CD for airplay or review)
