— Mad Cow


Mad Cow formed in Taranaki NZ in the mid 90's, evolving from New Plymouth
school band “No Comment” and has been producing original Indie-Rock music
ever since, releasing four CDs since 2000, and the Single “Alone” in 2021.
Always striving for originality and proudly independent, Mad Cow record and mix
their own songs and produce videos under the label “Pigpen Studios”.
Same Boat was recorded over 2021-22 with many challenges, taking longer than
the band would have liked.
Mad Cow has had many songs on local NZ radio and is playlisted on The Most FM,
