It's time for IWB's near-annual Street Dog's Thread.

...because they have a new album coming out in july. and there's an awesome song on the myspace page (plus a few old songs for folks who don't know them). this might also have something to do with a drive i made to worcester, ma the other day. yeah. they're going to break my top 5 all-time favorite band list.



hey mofo and UL! 4th album. can you believe that??

it may even be better than not without a purpose. or maybe it's just because it's new...because i'm sure i said the exact same thing about n.w.a.p. when the last album came out.

i can't believe they're playing the main stage at the warped tour. well, i can believe it. makes sense. lots of sense. but still, i can't help but think of the little flatbed truck stage a few years ago with 10 kids singing along...

I saw them last month on tour with Anti-Flag, and they were so good! I'd actually never listened to their music at all prior to that.

Which album is a good place to start?

mccolgan has more energy (and about 10 years) on most punk rock singers.

start at the beginning, start with savin hill. then move on to back to the world, and, finally fading american dream. dare i say they're evolving as a band, and the beginning is always the best place to start.

or maybe you should just start with fading american dream and work your way backwards. not a bad song on the album, most of what you heard last month can be found on it.

in defense of anything in closer proximity to my hometown than dorchester. or the rest of boston. goddamn gas prices...

hey, they opened with in defense of dorchester. that must count for something. and actually, they tore into it really, moreso than merely opened. because that's what the street dogs do....but anyway...




really? shame, for shame. i could have sworn you had savin hill.

this marks the very first of the what, half dozen or so, street dogs threads that i've made over the years where i haven't been talking completely to myself. i agree, that is most definitely a reportable offense.

I saw Street and hoped this was about Streetlight Manifesto. Alas, it is not.

Well I just read "Manifesto" and hoped you were speaking of the one I wrote. Alas, you were not.

The new song is quite swell. I'll be two weeks married at that point and spending money on music is going to be harder to justify, but I'll make sure to purchase it anyway.
