Cows are one of my all-time favorite bands and Norm's drumming was ALWAYS awesome. Good luck Norm. Make some noise on the other side.
    Man, that sucks. Cows were one of the greatest live bands in Mpls back in the day, just killed it. Shannon got all the accolades, but the whole band was tight, raw, loud, and hilarious.

    Godspeed, Norm.

    Yeah they were awesome live. I remember one show in particular at the Uptown Bar where they opened with their cover of "39 Lashes" and it just blew me away. My sister dated the bass player Kevin for several years so I saw a lot of shows. Later they used to come through Missoula and play when I lived there and I would afterparty with them. Shannon was a weird dude but pretty nice underneath. I think he's still active in the Mpls scene having moved back there from New York. Anyway, thanks for posting the gofundme link, Norm was absolutely the nicest guy. Fucking sucks. I sent that link to my sister and she said she was in Brit's pub last week, where Norm has been a manager for years, and she looked for him but she didn't see him...she was not aware of his illness.

    Those were the days. I talked my wife into meeting me at a Cows 1st Ave mainroom show after she got off the late shift; she was in a bad mood, and not into seeing a show. Then the band hit the stage and kicked into a massive free-for-all noisefest, Rutmanis doing his weird gyration dance like a special-needs kid, Thor summoning demons with his feedback, and (probably) Norm trying to keep the rhythm scaffolding firmly planted, while Selberg strutted onto the stage wearing nothing but a sock on his dick and proceeded to do a slow-motion reverse striptease. My wife was an instant fan.

    You and I were probably at a few shows together. You know Pat and Haze at AmRep?

    No, I can't say I knew them. That's a hilarious story though. Kevin R. was a good dude, too, who as I'm sure you know went on to play for years with the Melvins. Saw them in Boise long ago and said hi. They were all wearing ladies nightgowns that night, playing with Hank III. I heard Kevin was spiraling into heroin addiction recently, which sucks and ended up causing a split with the Melvins, but based on his FB page he's still active in Los Angeles in a band called Hepa-Titus. I saw his name on the gofundmepage as a donor, so that's cool, and he also made a post on FB about Norm's cancer.

    The kind of music that makes me look in the rear view mirror, at myself, just to remind myself how cool I am - I’m a skier!

    You guys know Martin Sexton? He's on tour in the West pretty much all winter, very worth seeing. Writes good songs, plays good guitar, sings like a motherfucker.

    Another Sexton tune just because. No idea who the other guy is or why he's out there, he's surely not needed.

    He tours just relentlessly for months at a time. He'll be in CO in March, although not Denver. http://www.martinsexton.com/tour/
