Aztec Two-Step

by terryg on December 2, 2011

Aztec Two-Step was formed in 1971 when Rex Fowler met Neal Shulman at an open mic at the Stone Phoenix, a Boston coffee house. Taking the band’s name from a poem by beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, in 1972 they released their debut album, which became a staple of progressive FM and college radio and helped to bring the folk/rock music of the 1960s into the 70s and beyond. In 1987 their album Living in America received the New York Music Award for Best Folk Album and was named in Billboard’s year-end critic’s poll. They have been praised in countless major US newspapers and magazines, including Rolling Stone, and have appeared on the David Letterman Show, the King Biscuit Flour Hour, World Café Live and many other TV and radio. In 1999 they were the subjects of the PBS documentary, “No Hit Wonder.” Earlier this year, to commemorate their 40th anniversary year, Fowler & Shulman released “Cause & Effect,” a collection of songs of social significance.

“In the midst of pure as silk harmonies and tight pop-rock-folk arrangements, Fowler’s songs are biting commentaries of contemporary society.”
Boston Globe
