The Dogs D'Amour were unleashed onto an unsuspecting and somewhat mediocre UK music scene during the mid 1980s. With their ramshackle pirate-meets-Dickens style, they pioneered a unique mixture of glam punk and stonesy rock n roll. They sang songs about sweet sorrows and told torrid tales of destruction - all perpetuated by their 'do-or-die' attitude. The band went on hiatus in 2002, but lead singer Tyla has kept the Dogs alive, working as a soloist writing and releasing new material.
Featuring Danny McCormack of Wildhearts fame, The Main Grains are quality purveryors of Northern Punk Rock with seriously bad a** riffage, shout and reply choruses with a Power Pop edge. A melting pot of influences ranging from the Ramones, Blondie, Cheap Trick, Stooges and Wildhearts to Phil Spector.
