Episode#32: Like Dogs

nites32There's music, and then there's Like Dogs. I'm astounded that one bass guitar, one drum kit, and one microphone can be responsible for so much chaos. Don't ask me what genre these guys are. I don't know and it doesn't matter. All that matters is that you bring some earplugs and some angst. And prepare to have your face melted by sniper-precision drumming and bass licks that would make Primus shit their pants. That minimalist backing sets the stage for Coach to scream and pace back and forth with a menacing posture and his head down, like a rabid pit bull helping you find your contact lenses. Just know that beneath the distorted bass and the throat-killing growls, there's a nuanced political message. Ain't no change coming from a broken piggy bank, Coach says. And he says it with enough charisma that even Obama voters raise their fists or drinks in agreement to that statement.
