PostSubject: Need Help With an AM! tattoo   Mon Feb 08, 2010 7:31 pm

OK , so basically , I was thinking of getting another tattoo , and I have been considering getting the cowboy from the cover of the acoustic EP.

Only problem is , I refuse to have a tattoo untill I know everything about the design im getting , and I know nothing about the album art.

What does it represent ?
Is it supposed to be anyone ?
is there any deeper meaning behind the cowboy ?

I would also like to know anything you know about why "The Eternal Cowboy" was called that .

Or is it all simply that AM! just love cowboys ?


Thanks for any help you can give me.

"Eternal Cowboy" is a reference to the old, old, wooden ships used during the Civil War era.

Tom, of course, used this term as a metaphor for watching a civil war (the punk scene) from a distance (in the ocean).



I hope that clears things up.

i'm pretty sure the logo on the EP cover is "the nuclear cowboy in an age of drift" which in itself is a bad as name..

and kyle is right bout "Eternal Cowboy"

.. but their is a lot of cowboy references in AM's stuff

i have the horse silhouette from the acoustic ep tattooed on my leg.
it is also a logo that represents the state of wyoming.
and i think i remember hearing that the whole eternal cowboy thing came from someone telling tom that he walked like was riding a horse all day.

The number of references of cowboys in Against Me!'s work can be traced back to 1995 when a young Thomas Gabel worked as a ranch hand in Texas.

if you don't know what you're talking about just make shit up. It also helps if you wear a hardhat and carry a clipboard, nobody fucks with you and nobody second guesses you.
