    There have been a great many bands called "Southern Cross Band" or "Southern Cross" down the years.
    Here's what little we know about this particular SOUTHERN CROSS BAND, who were skillfully adept at blending Southern Rock with Hard Rock.
    It transpires that the band was based in Long Island, New Jersey, (a strange locale for a Southern Rock act), and were formed by the Prewitt brothers who had moved to New York from the South.
    Both Prewitt brothers, Joe and Sonny were accomplished singers and guitar slingers.
    They were very active on the live circuit from the late 1970's to the mid-1980's, building up a big live following, especially in the tri-state area.
    Sadly, it doesn't seem that there were any official releases from them besides this, the two song promo "Lady Killer"/"Outlaw (Josey Wales)" 7".
    However, these same two songs also turned up on a few different compilation albums of local acts put together by various New York radio stations at the time.
    The A-side, "Lady Killer", is quite commercial, but still gutsy, with a really catchy chorus and a nice Hammond solo too.
    The epic flip side, "Outlaw (Josey Wales)", is excellent, sounding like a beefed up version of THE OUTLAWS, with some great tempo changes and extended soloing.
    It also reminds me a little of the band ASHBURY, who recorded the album "Endless Skies".
    During their time Southern Cross Band supported Southern Rock legends THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND and THE WINTERS BROTHERS BAND at shows in the NY area.
    Singer/guitarist Joe Prewitt is still active, having fronted a band called THE MANGOS for the last 20 years or so, apparently still playing in the Southern style, and they've just released an album called "Ain't Dead Yet".
