Originally arising out of the Detroit rock revolution that erupted with THE STOOGES and MC5, then migrating to LA in the late 70's, THE DOGS have influenced punk while treading right along with the scene. During the 70's they opened for punk and hard rock notables including TELEVISION, THE DICTATORS, KISS and AC/DC! THE DOGS have continued to play shows throughout the decades, even releasing new material on the Dionysus label in 2003. Most recently the band has been celebrated with an international tribute album with bands culled by Detroit Jack. As the notoriously celebrated MC5 manager John Sinclair writes of THE DOGS, "This trio crashes and burns through the front lines of rock and roll action like they've always done!" And after seeing their concert first hand in Tokyo, I can testify!

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Detroit rock band that helped bridge the gap between the rock revolution of the 60's and the more abrasive sentiments of the later punk movement, here's a double DVD set featuring the ever-loving Dogs! Get ready for some well-aged unreleased tracks of the band's early period including a cover The Stooges' proto-punk classic "I Wanna Be Your Dog." Fast forward to 2001, catch The Dogs live set at The Garage in L.A. and see they've lost none of their original bite. Then watch as The Dogs find a new fire hydrant to hang out around when they go to Tokyo, Japan to celebrate with a pack of bands that paid tribute to them on the Doggy Style compilation. Bear witness to all these earth-shaking moments on this incredible DVD collection!
Apart from the exclusive video footage there's a number of perks that would prick any Detroit Dogs fan's ears. The DVDs come packaged in mini-LP card-sleeve case, with cover art by the inimitable Japanese king of trash Rockin' Jelly Bean, and include a 28 page booklet with interviews, poster art and liner notes by punk rock icon Jeff Dahl and legendary MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer. Oh, did I neglect to mention that the DVDs also include classic photo & poster albums and the Doggy Days short film?! Watch out, man, you might just get rabies from watching this thing!
