Take a trip to ROCKIN' TOWN with Doug Cowen and the Basics. It's a magical place, this ROCKIN' TOWN . . . The streets are paved with gold records and the alleyways ring with tunes that are fresh and new, yet as familiar as songs you've known your whole life. There's a million stories in this town and a lot of ways to tell them, from fun traditional three-chord romps ('Rockin' Town,' 'I Can't Wait,' 'Keep on Rockin'') and energetic powerpop ('Numb,' 'She Likes to Dance'), to touching love songs ('Great Big Sky,' 'Spring Time Again') and dark explorations of modern life ('Pathetic Neighbor,' 'Sustain'). Singer / songwriter / guitarist Doug Cowen has been working the streets of ROCKIN' TOWN solo and with the band since the 1980s . . . in addition to his own home town of South Bend, Indiana. With Ben Hahaj on drums and Charley Neises on bass, they create a sound that's bigger than just three guys but just basic enough for one fan to proclaim 'It's what rock and roll used to sound like.'
