URBAN DOGS - New Barbarians EP 1982

Time for classic stuff, still fresh and catchy as forty years ago. We're talking about Urban Dogs from London, a collaboration between Charlie Harper (UK Subs) and Knox (The Vibrators) plus Alvin (bass) and Matthew (drums). In 1982 both bands found themselves at a loose end after some lengthy touring. Old friends Charlie and Knox got together and started making some music they shared a common love for. Along with a cover of the New York Dolls and Iggy & The Stooges, they added their own compositions that fitted. A couple of great songs emerged and already their debut EP, released on Fallout Records, is a superb three track GassenhauerFive albums have been released to date and I guess that wasn't all.
