The Dogs are a shining example of Punk rock as it existed in middle America before the Sex Pistols came and mucked things up. Just vicious rock 'n' roll really, loud and biting guitars with vocals to match. They came from Iowa and were one of the many Punk bands to crop up in the magical explosion of the mid-'70s. The Dogs' sound is spawned from the vicious sounds of the Michigan monster rock machine. They released only one 7", but those two songs will blast your ass into a time when rock 'n' roll had guts, when songs just couldn't be listened to loud enough.
