The Bollocks Are Back (Kind Of)

The last you heard, The Dog’s Bollocks had just returned from a whirlwind tour of the UK with our dear friends, the ladies of Killdeer. Then we played a June gig at the fabled Bitter End. Then…..silence. Not the best career move for any band on the rise. But so it goes; rock and roll. But fear not; these Bollocks will not be left swinging in the wind, if that’s not too indelicate. Like the phoenix rising from the ashes, we are back…kind of. And without any fire. Or ashes.

In a nutshell, we went our separate ways and then thought that maybe those ways weren’t the best ways. So now we’re reconvening and doing it a different way. If that’s too much detail, let me know. So, Regan and James are back, now joined by Angie, an awesome vocalist who maintains that she’ll sing anything, just so long as it’s not shite. I paraphrase there a little, but you get the drift. So, now we’ve two lead singers – Regan and Angie – one guitar-playing singer and…that’s it. Think White Stripes, but with 50% more personnel. In the next week or so, we will be signing a drummer, bass player and keyboardist, at which time we will be back to a full complement of Bollocks.

Which is just as well, given the set we’re working on. Bluesy rockers, country rockers, classic rockers and a bunch of original rockers – plus some mellifluous mellow not so rockers – all of which will leave your ears oozing for more, if that’s not too gross, which it is. Sorry. You get my drift. Your oozing opportunity will arrive shortly, in case you were wondering; just read on.

Regan and James are both recording albums – Oh yes; like a mouthful of maggots, you can’t keep these Bollocks down – and we’ve already booked a full slate of gigs for our UK tour in May and June. That will be full-on fecking awesome-er than the 2019 tour, which was seriously fecking awesome. So, that’s saying something – which is, “Watch for all the details.”

For the immediate future, watch also for details of our impending January and February dates in NYC. It will be wonderful to start 2020 with a big bang of the Bollocks, which is our intention, although, being honest, the metaphor makes me a tad queasy. Just saying.

I’ll end just saying have a rocking Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanza or whatever you celebrate and a new year filled with music to make your ears pulsate with pleasure. See you in 2020.
