Bad Flamingo will ride up on you and rob you blind- hear "Running From The Lawman"

Bad Flamingo dress in all black and they wear cool Zorro type masks. They keep their identities hidden. The track Running From The Lawman is spartan but dripping with cool sounds amid a pursed lips bass line, static drum beat with timbales in the background, pearly keys and guitars that feel like something like surf guitar with Spanish tones filtered through hazy psychedelia. The vocal performance is whispery straining into over modulation, seductive and sultry. The entire sound begs, begs.... fucking begs any music blogger to use the overused phrase "Spaghetti Western" but I am not going to succumb to something so utterly cliche. Aw fuck, I did now.... didn't I.
