A GIANT DOG
with special guests
and Memory Front
This summer, ahead of the bands tour dates, Merge will reissue A Giant Dogs first two full-lengths2012s Fight and 2013s Boneworldwide on limited-edition colored vinyl, reintroducing the world to the quintet Spoons Britt Daniel calls the greatest American rock and
roll / punk band since I dont know when.
Celebrating its tenth birthday is A Giant Dog. Fight, the Texas groups hard-to-find debut album, remixed by Stuart Sikes, remastered by Dan Coutant, and pressed on green vinyl just for the
occasion. All the trademark tenets of AGD lore are on display at the jump: monstrously adorable album art and punny title, whip-smart songwriting dolled up in denim and leather, boiled down to the sweetest moments and blown out to the masses with bravado to spare.
Upon Fights original release, the Austin Chronicle raved: The raucous, low-rent squall quakes with affirmative abandon, while a just-right dose of pop girds the buzz and yowl. As such, these 15 songs on vinyl resonate well beyond the groups chosen genre lines.
Recording for the first time with a proper producer (Mike McCarthy) in a proper environment, Bone, on pink vinyl for the reissue, still manages to Kool-Aid Man its way through the speakers with the immediacy of the bands live shows, a hit parade for the party people.
Sabrina Ellis and Andrew Cashen add another bakers dozen tunes to the bands repertoire just a year following their debut, with songs like All I Wanted, Dammit Pomegranate, and Another World cementing them as a conspicuous songwriting duo.
