English Dogs

Hi everyone. Let us begin right here... it is official. THIS TOUR IS ON!!!! Bear in mind this tour is scheduled for USA ONLY at the moment....

This line up has 3 members that are on the "To the ends of the earth " 12" Forward into Battle album , "Metalmorphosis" 12" and "Where Legend Began" album . Pinch played on every official release and Gizz Played on everything apart from the "Mad Punx" 12' and "Porky men" album. A total of 8 official releases.The line up that is currently touring UK as English Dogs has 1 member that appears on any official releases. And that's Wakey who appears on 3. If you're looking for an original line up in any sense then I'll let you do the math Graviora.

That blurb comes from the "English Dogs: Forward into Battle - USA Tour Feb 2012" Facebook page, which somewhat lays out the legendary crossover band's plans for next year (to tour the US playing their landmark LP). The lineup for the tour is:
Andy "Pinch" Pinching - Drums
Gizz Butt - Lead Guitar
Adie Bailey - Vocals
Craig Christy - Bass
Ryan - Rhythm Guitar
Dates are forthcoming, but the USA had better look out.

Gizz Butt was the excellent guitarist who joined Steve Ignorant in performing the songs of Crass earlier this year. The dude kicks ass.

Who wrote this?!? What's with the having a go at Wakey? Grow up already... This is punk rock, not some major-label hair fight... Wakey restarted English Dogs in 2008 and has a solid lineup gigging round the UK. Having gone to a riotous gig in London this weekend I can say that they're back for good... And it's true, they are punk rock band. I'm sure there's room for the Dogs plus this project to co-exist...

Wakey is a joke! He just irrates everyone at his own gigs. Always completely off his face and basically a pain in the Arse for the 20 or so punters. His version play to such a small crowd I really don`t know why they bother. Saw tehm in Norwich recently and it was terrible, I mean really bad. doesn`t help when the singer ofthe band is going up to random strangers in a threatening manner asking them if they like him or not. The Guy has major problems. People last with him in a band for 5 mins it seems. I used to live in the west country and avoid contact like the plague.

Ha Ha yeah the `King of Ketamine` ha ha no wonder his so called `singing` sounds a bit HORSE!

yeah well you dont know gizz very well the most big headed dick out there - and how come most of the punx back in the day hated the dogs when the shite metel albums came out- yeah punk rock is about anti rock star ideals and diy ethics not about so called rock stars.

Fair enuff I don`t know gizz. My comments are about Wakey and the way he goes on. He`s paranoid and hacks everyone off at hs gigs, it seems folk in his band last 5 mins with him. I know one guy who was in the band with him recemtly and he says it was unbearable under him, especially for playing in front of 20 folk per night. the Geezer who plays guitar these days deserves better than the garbage the band are doing. One things for sure though, the Gizz, Pinch version will play to around 500 punters per night. Wakey will play to 30 and that 30 will probably not return next time they play the same city. You can`t up to to folk at your own gigs off your face all the time and squaring up to them asking if they like him or not. Fact is he`s not a popular bloke at all.

Hmm, well I've seen Wakey's Dogs a few times now and certainly last time in London, the gig was full and the crowd treated Wakey like some sort of returning hero. There were a fair few people at that gig who'd been at other recent Dogs gigs, including myself, so they're definitely picking up fans as they go along...

Mike not disputing what you`re saying about London gigs mate but look at other recents gigs on youtube. Not many there at all to be honest.

Posted by Gassa | October 25, 2011 11:21 AM

Yep remember him being an Idiot at blackpool. Look like an old Vagrant dancing for money.........sad!

Saw the English Dogs at Xmas in Sheffield. Absolutley terrible. About 2 punters interested. I really don`t know why they bother. As for singer upsetting everyone, well didn`t see him around but on stage he wasn`t very good to be honest. Poor band back in the day but absolutely atrocious now!
