DOGS - "Rollin' In It" - LP - 2005

    Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you mixed a venomous, straightforward punk band with one of those noise guys who bends over a huge box of pedals, oscillators, and homemade electronics? Well, wonder no more! DOGS were around for a very short time during the mid-00's and I regret being on the verge of a blackout during the only time I saw them when our paths crossed at a show in a bike shop in Madison, WI. They were partially responsible though since they were the ones who were foisting beers upon us, cutting the holes in them and urging us to shotgun them over and over.
    Hot Tony and his "Box of Dreams" make blips, swooshes, static and skronk over these punk-as-fuck songs about bombing skyways and losing your goddamn mind. I think this album really hits it's stride at side 2 ("Diamonds Last Forever") and becomes unfuckwithable, but that's just me. Download it for yourself and see.
   This LP was put out by the mysterious Jicca! label and this might be their only release (Sweettooth?). The members of this band are spread from sea to shining sea these days and are doing some pretty badass stuff. My apologies to DOGS for turning you analog creation into a digital mess.

It was spelled jiica! actually, misspelled on both records by different people during the mastering, also "put out" might not be the right word for it. thanks for posting greg

I was at that show in Madison. Did I just make up the story about how when they chant "dogs dogs dogs" in that one song a dog actually came running into the show? I think it was there's too. One of my all time favorite records! Thanks Sweettooth and Greg and of course the DOGS themselves!

Thanks Robert! Also, E...I don't remember the DOGS chant thing, but like I said, I was kinda blacked out. Anything coulda happened.
