An ironic twist of this yearís SXSW is the appearance of two former members of the Cowsills, the 1960s band of siblings upon which The Partridge Family was based. Youngest sister Susan is back for the second straight year with the Continental Drifters, while oldest brother Billy makes his first visit to town in many years with his new band, the Blue Shadows. Once a running buddy of Joe Ely, Cowsill now resides in Vancouver, B.C., where he has teamed up with Jeffrey Hatcher to create some of the best country-pop vocal harmonies since the Everly Brothers. The bandís Sony/Canada dis On The Floor Of Heaven is a first-rate release crying out for American distribution, while the bandís live shows deliver a kick that the CD only hits at.
