Tarred And Feathered, fourth and latest single off the debut
album from Dogs. "Who?"I hear you ask. Exactly. Dogs have not been getting
the attention they deserve, perhaps down to smatterings of comparisons to Razorlight, which is unfair, because
Dogs have an undeniable and charming talent.
The latest in the long-line of bands profiting from the now legendary Libertines legacy, Dogs' latest
offering is edgy, punky, and passionate. A hushed verse builds to a rampant
chorus that whips Johnny Cooke into frenzy as he sings for his life.
Okay, Dogs are part of the post-Libs madness that spews up new bands like a
bulimic with food poisoning, but they don't need the Libertines comparisons
to survive. They have the muscle and power to stand on their own four feet
perfectly well. The Dogs' bite is infectious.
