With the success of their major label debut, 'New Wave', as well as endless acclaim from both critics and fans alike, AGAINST ME! have quickly ascended to the upper echelon of the punk scene. A pivotal step along the path that led to their current enviable status was the 2003 release of 'As The Eternal Cowboy'. A groundbreaking album that effortlessly blends the intimacy and passion of AGAINST ME!'s live show with their heartfelt and jarring music, 'As The Eternal Cowboy' served as a defibrillator for a then stagnate music scene. Recently, to the delight of their faithful following, the band elected to release the predominantly never-before-heard demos from the album under the title 'The Original Cowboy'. AGAINST ME"'s singer/guitarist Tom Gabel had this to say about the release: "recorded and mixed in only a couple of hours, 'The Original Cowboy' was only meant to be a trial run, but, listening to it today, there's a part of me that feels foolish for ever recording these songs a second time". Fortunately for their adoring fans, with the release of 'The Original Cowboy', we get to enjoy this momentous album in its original incarnation and judge for ourselves!

Awesome if you are a fan

"Overall I am very happy with this album. The songs are very similar to the versions on The Eternal Cowboy, but a little bit more rough. Of course raw and short songs are part of what defines traditional punk music. So if you like punk music and have been a fan of Against Me! way back in their early days, I would recommend this album. However, if you prefer polished standard 4 minute radio songs "to get your money's worth" you should probably pass.
Don't lose touch with AM!

"This band is amazing both live and on cd. Reading the description you can see that this cd was originally just a trial run, but it just has an awesome raw/personal quality to it that is rarely heard. I've been listening to these songs for years now, and it's nice to hear them differently and how they were originally suppose to be, not that there is much difference that I could tell from these versions and the versions you might have heard already.
There's actually 10 songs on it, cause track 1 and 8 are two different songs.
I also heard that the drummer in AM! has left the band. That is super sad"
