URBAN DOGS - 'New Single' (*A REVIEW*)
After the sublime acoustic strum of the Bonefied album, the Urban Dogs have plugged in again and released this electrifying double A side single, which shines brightly in this new dark age. Rebellion Song is a slow and solid tune that marches into your head, a lead guitar bleeds amongst the thumping rhythm as Mr Harper sings about writing rebellion songs in a world where the pictures of war and destruction write the history of governments One Foot In The Grave is an up tempo toe tapping little number, propelled along by a chugging guitar and Knox's narrative about nothing really changing over time, in a world where the poor are still the poor and politicians are still liars. This single is a gritty growling socio/political statement, possibly the best couple of songs the Urban Dogs have released....Ignore at yer peril, but be quick cos those cheeky chappies at Time & Matter have only pressed up 500 copies.
