Cowtown I Pet Crow @Dubrek Studios

Dubrek Studios, 6 Becket Street, Derby, United Kingdom

Dubrek are proud to present this fine trio from Leeds supported by Derby's very own Pet Crow!

Listen to their amazing back catalogue here: https://lords.bandcamp.com/ https://www.facebook.com/Ishooktheroyalthrone/ Bilge Pump have never ceased to manipulate the boundaries of rock music ...
