The Dogbones are a weird band… and erm, they’re really very proud of that fact, ladies and germs. Though, what would you honestly expect from a group of London-based misfits who (a couple of members) used to be in Queenadreena and The Mediaeval Baebes?
This is downright crazy, raw and energetic music with punk feel and a smidge of dirty glam influence that’ll remind you why everyone found the likes of Marilyn Manson (in the 90s), Sonic Youth (in the 80s) Bowie, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed (in the 70s) so very very cool.
Tracks like ‘Hey Chihuahua’ and ‘The Whole Word Is Weird’ strike hard and fast, like an edgier more full-fat (and credible) Hole. There are no sugar-pop frills here. It’s all about rough-and-ready riffs, blistering snare-heavy drumming and crazy, crazy nights featuring mannequins and a whole lot of paint (just watch some of the videos…).
If you put The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster (RIP), QA, Daisy Chainsaw and My Bloody Valentine in a ring together to duke it out in a Battle Royale-style fight to the death, then this is what it would sound like on record.
This band deserves your attention. They’ll hold (and potentially grab at) your ears and eyes for months to come. In short, The Dogbones are the last real rock band in the UK. You’re just going to have to deal with that fact.
