Two of punk’s greatest survivors, Charlie Harper of the UK Subs and Knox of The Vibrators have come up with a startling new album by their side project band URBAN DOGS.
This CD-only release features a stunning painting by Knox as its eye-catching cover, full colour 8 page booklet including photos by the world famous rock photographer Paul Slattery and well known punk photographer Gemma ‘LibraSnake’ Eggle.
Charlie has also written exclusive liner notes on each of the album’s songs.
Featuring a mixture of new songs, cover versions and old Subs, Dogs or Vibrators classics, you will find much delight in this sparkling 11 track toe-tapping acoustic-attitude album. Striking the right balance between political message and great sing-along acoustic songs, this collection of tunes will certainly surprise and entertain you.
Recorded over a two year period, Charlie jokes that it is a “bare bones production”, but that betrays the lightness of touch and intricate musicianship that shines through on this classic material.
So…there’s life in these old dogs yet!
Who said old dogs can’t have their day?
