Album Review

The Hank Dogs are one of the most intriguing roots-based groups performing in the U.K. today. Effortlessly fusing folk and country elements with what can only be described as a hardened grace, this, their debut record, succeeds on many levels. One of the most striking things about this record is the veritable gene-spliced brother/sisterhood that engulfs virtually all of the cuts. This is primarily due to the group members themselves. Featuring guitarist/singers Andy Allen and his ex-wife Piano Pace, and rounded out by Lily Ramona — who is Andy's daughter from another marriage (are you following this?) — on drums and vocals, the harmony singing on this record is positively staggering. In fact, these are probably some of the finest vocal performances in this idiom during the '90s. The songwriting is also spectacular. Dark and soulful at the same time, Bareback is one of the greatest folk debuts of 1999. The scary thing is that they just may get better.

the best music is never on the radio...

Hank Dogs put together a pretty decent album with Bareback. I listened to a few songs at a friends house and couldn't wait to get ahold of the album. The band does a pretty good job of stringing together soulful blues/folk without sounding country. 18 Dogs is my favorite. Make no mistake, this is not "bells and whistles" alternative band , just chill, easy to vibe with folk rock. Enjoy.

This album came out when I was in college - in 1999. It's one of my all time favorites - this family is so talented. I don't understand why it took so long for a US release, but I don't the band is even together anymore, are they? In any case - the album is awesome and is a real find for anyone who comes finds it...
