On June 8th, 1996, Cows played at CBGB’s! Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Cows were a post-hardcore/noise rock band known for their infamously raucous live performances. After forming in 1987, the band released a whopping nine studio albums before disbanding in 1998. Right around the time of this show, the band released their penultimate LP, Whorn. In an attempt to capture their notorious live performances, Cows recorded the entire album in a “live sound” style, playing together as a whole band instead of recording their parts individually. After breaking up in 1998, front-person Shannon Selberg went on to front The Heroine Sheiks.
