I get a lot of Facebook messages from bands telling me how much they love ninebullets while selling the fuck out of their new cd to me. So when I received a passing message from Tal of The Cur Dogs introducing me to his band I was intrigued by it’s “check it out if you want, if not…whatever” tone as well as the fact that he admitted he had just found out about 9b….so I clicked the link. Liking what I heard on their myspace profile I asked for the cd and was directed to d/l it from their label. At that point I learned that they are on the same label as 9B faves, The Wells and I officially moved from curious to desirous.
The Cur Dogs are from the great state of Ohio and more specifically from the same town as one constantly overrated college football team and one constantly underrated rock and roll band called Two cow Garage. Rumor has it that the Two Cow song, “Lydia”, might even have something to do with one of The Cur Dogs girlfriends….but you know, that’s just some scuttlebutt I heard. Musically, these dudes perform a pretty straight forward brand of rock and roll that would probably fit somewhere in the Lucero meets DBT area of the americana soundscape with midwest working man lyrics. In other words, it’s exactly the kind of shit we love here at the ninebullets compound. Check it out and tell me what you think.
