Thick Pigeon ::: Too Crazy Cowboys
Thick Pigeon was essentially a vehicle for songwriter Stanton Miranda and arranger Carter Burwell. Based in New York, the duo recorded a brace of oblique, minimalist singles for crepuscule in 1981-82 before moving sideways to factory for their first album.
Stanton Miranda went on to act in movies and off-broadway and to contribute songs for Joy Division tribute album, A Means To An End. Carter Burwell has scored approximately 50 major motion pictures, including Gods and Monsters, Adaptation, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Being John Malkovich, as well as almost every feature made by Joel and Ethan Coen. On his soundtrack for Psycho III, Stanton Miranda was a featured singer.
