I used to think of Ratdog as Uncle Bob's bar band, now I think of them as Uncle Bob's jazz band. either way they create a big, fat, wet, sloppy groove. Everytime I see the dog a find a chick to dance with and meet new freinds. I like the dog the way they are. They definatly don't sound like the dead, but their not trying to.
The first time I brought my brother to see the dog he stated after the show "It's like going to see the Grateful Dead's retarded uncle."
I thought that was funny as hell, but he had a great time and didn't mind the whole non-dead-dead thing they lay out.
my buddy dave said after his first Dog show in Rochester. "It's like climing out of a dumpster"
that show was a close quarters jam, and it was a funky night for bob, so we were all super sweety and smelly, and had just spent three hours rubbing against people we didn't know. after that we had to pick up a Volkswagon that was blocking the exit to the parking lot so that a few hundred hippies could leave. it was a f**king mess, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
do what now?
