Congress Of Cow (Pre-Lanemeyer) Demo

Before Chris Barker was in "Day At The Fair", and even before he was in"Lanemeyer", there lived a great band known as "Congress Of Cow". These guys spit out some catchy ass tunes like it was childs play. If you want proof, just listen to "Walking Away" or "Kristy White Song". Essentially, Congress Of Cow became Lanemeyer.... but for me... COC will always be #1.

The picture above was taken outside of a show that Shower With Goats and Congress Of Cow played together in Harrisburg, PA in 1997.... a show that neither band will ever forget (inside joke). Click on the picture for a larger size image.

- Bottom (Left to right) : Chris (COC), Mike (SWG), Me (SWG).
Top (Left to right) : Ann (Friend), Mary (Friend), Dave (SWG), My friend Scott (Sevn), Jeff (COC), & Mike (COC).

To the best of my knowledge, they only released this one demo tape under the COC name. The zip file includes high-res scans of the inside and outside cover, including lyrics. Enjoy !

Harrisburg? oh man I'm about 45 minutes away. Too bad I was only 12 at the time. And thank you for posting this. I've been looking for it for about 5 years now. And thank you for the SWG demo tapes! If you ever come across another copy of any of this stuff, or wanna sell your copies, let me know. I'd be interested

My daughter was a regular fan of CoC; as the 'driving dad' and musician myself, I really enjoyed CoC and Lanemeyer. Good stuff.
