The Same Old Bollocks
by on May 20, 2019 in Bollock's Blog

It’s the circle of liiiiiiiife, it’s the path unwindiiiiiinnnnnnng. Or something like that. You’ll have to ask Elton. (Looking forward to seeing “Rocketman”, by the way). Which is to say, things change. Life evolves. The one constant is that there is no constant. Yes, these Bollocks can be existential when they choose to. Which is not something you’d customarily associate with Bollocks, come to think of it. In any case, all of which is to say, The Dog’s Bollocks is no more.

And yet….still they rise. Allow me to clarify. What was once The Dog’s Bollocks is no longer The Dog’s Bollocks. But The Dog’s Bollocks remain, as they must, just not the same. Got it? OK – I’ll spell it out. Mike, Andy, Dushyant and Nishad are gone. Regan and James remain. Old Bollocks, new Bollocks, the same old bollocks. (Note the lower case). Creative differences – it happens. Think Fleetwood Macthe Eagles, the Beatles – yes, The Dog’s Bollocks are often spoken of in the same breath as those icons. The point is, the lads have moved on and will certainly thrive, while the stripped down pair of Bollocks get ready to depart for a tour of the UK.

Funny how that goes and hard to believe, truth be told. But, oh yes; on Friday, May 24th, The Dog’s Bollocks head across the Atlantic for a tour of England – London, Kent…some other places that I forget; check the schedule here – opening for our dear friends Killdeer (who have just released their first album, which is seriously awesome and which you can listen to – and buy! – by clicking here). There’s a certain irony in the fact that The Dog’s Bollocks have only once ever played off the island of Manhattan, that being in Coney Island, where we had five people in the audience – the band for which we were opening – plus one dude who came in to take a leak and then left. But that’s how we roll. We wouldn’t be The Dog’s Bollocks if we didn’t give it large, as they say in Hackney, east London, site of our first UK gig. (Biddle Bros to be precise; check them out here).

So, if you happen to be in or around England next week, come to see us and Killdeer. They are awesome, the dog’s bollocks, in fact – again, as they say in Hackney. As for The Dog’s Bollocks, we’re the mutt’s nuts.

Keep on rocking.

The Dog’s Bollocks.
