Big Bird Dog:
Big Bird Dog kicked off his musical exploits in 1980 with
gothic-punk-rockabillies Sunglasses After Dark.
The band released two records on Anagram before splitting
up in 1984, after which Big Bird Dog spent a few years playing
in number of bands including Saddlewhores, Demented are
Go!, the Sex Gang Children and Decadent Few.
In 1989 he joined the country/skiffle outfit Macavity's
Cat, and embarked on eight years of gigging, touring and
recording, but mostly drinking.
The band finally split in 1997, after which Big Bird Dog
and a couple of the cats (including Kevin Dog) formed Rubbish!
Their brief but eventful career, which saw the appearance
of Lisa Dog on the scene as their drummer, came to an end
within a year, and Big Bird Dog sat down to plan his next
musical venture - a punk band which plays cover versions
of country and western classics! Simple but brilliant!
All that remained was to sit in pubs and bars for two and
a half years talking it up but doing nothing about starting
Until, that is, on one fateful night in early Summer 2000,
a few brandy cocktails too many resulted in someone (Jim
Dog) actually listening to his drunken ramblings, and the
nucleus of Some Dogs was formed.
Then, in 2004, he fucked off to live in New Zealand.
Just like a two-bit whore
