A Load of Bollocks
by on September 3, 2018 in Bollock's Blog

The ending of the last Bollocks Blog wished everybody a rocking summer, which makes it hard to think that summer is just about at an end. That’s not all bad. No more blazing heat. We will soon be enjoying a few weeks of simply idyllic conditions…followed by Lord knows how many months of a skin-peeling winter. That’s if you’re in New York. If you’re reading this from St John or St Thomas or St Marten or some saint of an island that we’ve never heard of…well, how’s about you invite The Dog’s Bollocks on down for a winter’s tour? (“It Was Only a Winter’s Tour.” Ref: David Essex, for the uninitiated. I can tell you a story about him, if we ever cross paths, and if you happen to be interested). But, I digress by some considerable margin.

Back here in mid-town Manhatten, your favorite Bollocks (meaning that are not attached to your body) took a hiatus from gigging after a busy spring and have spent the summer rehearsing hard. (Those of you who chorused, ”It’s about time,” can fecking well feck orf). If you want to see the fruits of the labor, well come on down to the famed Bitter End in the West Village this coming Friday (September 7th) at 7pm and there we will be, rocking like a load of Bollocks.

It must we said, we are thrilled to be playing the Bitter End. It’s one of the most celebrated live music venues in New York City, which you will see should you take a butch at their web site. (Butch = Butcher’s Hook = Look. Yes, we are poly-lingual). Bob Dylan has played there. And Neil Young. And Joni Mitchell. And Jerry Jeff Walker. And Tony Joe White. And Jim Croce. And Tay Tay! And….very soon, The Dog’s Bollocks. Kind of out-of-body that we’re now on the roster, if not on the Bitter End’s “Legends” page. Maybe after Friday….

Following the Bitter End outing, we will be playing Desmond’s on Park Avenue South on Saturday September 15th. We go on at 10pm, and it’s certain to be a bollocks-rattling occasion. How do I know? Because we’re sharing the evening with Handsome Pete (8pm), Local Distrubance (9pm) and The 86’s (11pm). Hold on to ‘em is all I’m gonna say.

As for the Bollocks. We’ve got new original songs, old classic songs and new original versions of old classic songs. All of which we hope to present to you at the Bitter End and/or Desmond’s….and some yet to be named venues in the Caribbean.

Rock on.

The Dog’s Bollocks.
