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.

Never heard this one... I've got the "No Pedigree" LP and to be honest it didn't impress me much at the time. I'll give it another try...
Thanx Nuzz.

"no pedigree" wasn't there best album, this is almost classical. limo life imho is one of the finest tunes i've ever heard well worth the entrance fee alone.

No Pedigree was a bit patchy, just love this one though. Anyone got the third one? Cheers J, Cheers cat.

I love this lp, I found an import of it right after it came out,and the CD sometime it the late 90s. Two of my faves, Knox and Charlie Harper, doing a bang up job.
I have never heard the other urban dogs lps, I heard they were not as good, and I also figured they would not top this one.
