about

Scott Arbogast from the defunct Creepy Old Trucks now wields the moniker Rainstick
Cowbell. He's left behind the bass and the drummer of his prior outfit, for an emotional excursion
on acoustic guitar with tight strumming, severe picking and tense open spaces. His literary lyrics
lament heroes past against snapshots of his own raw emotions. Hailed as the Acoustic Agitator,
Rainstick Cowbell instigates, castigates and prognosticates about the world's weary state with an
open heart and a bitter tone.
Epic in scale, intimate in detail, this is poetry and music intertwined around philosophy,
history and ugly truths – laced with fragile hope. Rainstick Cowbell conjures up the great
personal/political songwriters, like Billy Bragg, Woody Guthrie and Ani D'Franco, if they were
more pissed..
