So what happened? Squid fell apart on the eve on the second single. Milf and Tugboat Annie signed to bigger indies and released several accliamed records respectively. Spavid recorded an amazing LP (twice) that was to come out on Humble, as well as another single for Simple Machines - but they imploded in Portland, Oregon after opening for Pitchblende and subsequently neither of those records have seen the light of day. Perhaps one day… Spavid’s ryhthm section, bassist Bruce Reckhan and drummer Jason Kourkounis joined Delta 72. Kourkounis has since gone on to further acclaim as the drummer for Bardo Pond, Hot Snakes, Night Marchers, Burning Brides, Joe Lally and Scout Niblett. Snufflufugus, Rainbow Girls and Beef all carried on long after Cash Cow came to a halt. 24 months of promise, then silence…13 years of inactivity, and now what? Cash Cow Recording Company was been reborn in 2009 as Cash Cow Production. Denver, Colorado based record label, booking, film production, artist management, marketing, whatever inspires, whenever the inspiration hits.
