URBAN DOGS - Urban Dogs (Vinyl Album Rip)
What do you get if you put Knox from The Vibrators, Charlie Harper and Alvin Gibbs from The UK Subs and a geezer called Turkey together? A fucking great blast of Rock'n'Roll that's what, and a criminally ignored album, in these days of punk revisionism and retrolution. Well not anymore, cos here it is for yer aural pleasure. What does it sound like ? Well as you'd expect; a hybrid of The Vibrators and The UK Subs, but in a class of its own. Not one duff track and there's 12 of em. A few Vibrators numbers; Dragnet, I Need a Slave and Sex Kick, a couple of Dolls and Stooges covers I Wanna Be Your Dog and Human Being, (the latter features a guest appearance by Andy McCoy from Hanoi Rocks) There's one track Knox sings; New Baptism and an Alvin Gibbs number A Bridge Too Far. The rest are all Charlie Harper numbers, one a great anti-war anthem called War Babies that still sounds relevant 24 years latter. Any way enuff of this waffle, just get yer ears round the URBAN DOGS.
