    Appealing directly to my tastes for western swing
    and cajun cowboy country, Next Time sees Pickens
    and Baz trading songs and vocals and playing just
    about everything besides drums and fiddle....Baz and
    Pickens have put together a little gem of a record.

about

Baz says: The flamin’ internet – don’t you love it and hate it all at once? Here we are slaving over our new CD, which the internet will turn into so much cyber-trash, worth zilch, because it’s free. Then again, of course, good music is priceless... Meanwhile, in full cyber-geek mode, Baz took revenge and ‘borrowed’ a whole ream of authentic traditional zydeco and cajun tunes off the net, just to soak in – and so that Slim & Baz could polish up the Cajun element in their ‘Cajun Cowboy Blues’ music… and he put all of this incredible, magical old stuff on a CD for his mate Slim to listen to. Slim took the CD on a road-trip back to his hometown in Victoria and he was listening to a groovy little track with those same two zydeco chords and a jumpy beat, and he thought it sounded so good - he sat down to fiddle about with it a bit, when, hey presto! A little gem of an old-timey, rag-time, thinga-me-bob just jumped out of the ether and into his head. It’s sounds nothing like zydeco – but who’s arguing with the strange tactics of the Muse, as now it’s got a life of it’s own. And there’s a story in there…or is it a tad autobiographical too?
