A Flock of Bollocks
by on April 22, 2018 in Bollock's Blog

Here it is, the news you’ve been waiting for: your Bollocks are back to full strength. Regan, Andy and James are the seasoned veterans. New to the fray are:

 

Joe Alves

Joe Alves

Joe Alves on drums: He comes from somewhere in New Jersey. Not sure what exit. But he showed up in our room one day and…well, wow! He knows his way around the kit, no question about it.

Plus, he’s self-taught. And he sings. And he plays the guitar.

For the time being, we’re keeping him shackled to the throne; but, who knows what the future may bring?

 

 

DP

DP on guitar: He hails from the lower reaches of Manhattan, via New Jersey, via Bombay.

He says that he came to the USA in search of rock. He certainly found that, plus some Bollocks that he may not have expected.

Wotevah: when he decides to let rip on lead – which he does often – it’s clear that he’s a virtuoso.

 

 

 

Nishad Sawant

Nishad Sawant on keyboards: As appealing as the idea may be, we did not go on a recruiting trip to India, although, evidently, that would have been fruitful. Like Dushyant (and Ajay before them), Nishad is from Bombay, aka Mumbai.

As he enjoys reminding all within earshot, he is the youngest Bollocks; that notwithstanding, he has the fingers of a maestro.

Nishad is the Bollocks’ first keyboards player. It’s only now that we realize what we were missing.

 

 

So that’s the full complement: Regan (vocals), Andy (bass), James (guitar), Dushyant (guitar), Joe (drums) and Nishad (keyboards). A full flock of Bollocks. Or gaggle. Or herd. Up to you really. Suggestions may be made at www.thedogsbollocksnyc.com.

Speaking of which, should you go to said website – which you most certainly must – you will find two new items of monumental interest: 1) an enrollment form for “News About Your Bollocks.” (Not entirely sure that’s what it’s called; but, it will do for now as a working title). Anyway, NAYB is our brand new, soon to be launched newsletter which you simply must receive. It will contain anything and everything that you need to know about your Bollocks, plus chances to win trips to the Gallapagos Islands, back stage passes to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony and lunch with the Queen. (The first item is 100% rock solid true; the others, possibly a tad less so). Anyway, let’s not get bogged down in details. Sign up for the Bollocksletter. It’s brillyant! (Yes, that’s how you spell it).

The second item of earth-shattering significance is the Bollocks’ updated tour schedule. You will agree that “tour” can be a loosely defined concept. Global, local – still a tour, yes? Our tour doesn’t stray outside of Manhattan – (we almost went to Queens, but that fell apart due…how can we say delicately, without sounding bitter?….an arsehole shitehawk of a bum-faced booking agent). But, staying with the positive: BollocksTour Summer ’18 is a fecking winner. We hope to see you at each and every one of the following:

Wednesday, May 2nd, 8pm – Shrine World Music Venue
Harlem’s iconic live music venue for the debut of our original music.

Sunday, May 6th, 1:30pm – Carragher’s West 39th St.
The NY home of Liverpool FC and the Bollocks’ favorite boozer. Liverpool are playing Chelsea. We go on post-game. #YNWA

Tuesday, May 15th, 7:30pm – Sidewalk Cafe
The legendary LES live music venue. The Bollocks making their Sidewalk debut.

Sunday, June 17th, 8pm – The Delancey
The Bollocks host a Father’s Day evening of rock solid rock and roll. The roster kicks off at 6pm and goes through to midnight. Also on the list are Earth to Matilda, Nasty Women & The Bad Hombres, Reality’s Dream, Handsome Pete and Francesca Love & the Beating Hearts. That’s a bollocks-rocking line-up.

All of which is to say that you need to be there – “there” meaning everywhere. So, we’ll see you…there.

Rock on.
The Dog’s Bollocks
