Irish grunge outfit Kerbdog are set to reissue their self-titled debut and ‘On The Turn’ albums on vinyl on November 6th via re-issue specialists Hassle Hindsight.
Their 1994 self-titled debut was recorded by Jack Endino, the producer of Nirvana’s “Bleach”, at Rockfield Studios, while Sepultura recorded Chaos A.D. next door. Cormac says of their raw debut record: “I think some of what they were doing seeped into what we were doing. It made the record heavier and more chunky than we intended, but we were happy with the results.”
Despite their cult status Kerbdog have had a lasting effect on the musical landscape with the likes of Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro regarding Kerbdog as crucial to their development.
“Kerbdog are one of the most underrated bands ever. Their debut album and “On The Turn” should be part of everyone’s rock education. They opened my eyes to what was possible with riffs and melody and they’re the reason we worked with Garth Richardson on our last three records. It’s a crime that Kerbdog are not held aloft by every band in the country as heroes.”
“It’s truly humbling to be bringing out the two Kerbdog albums on vinyl. They’re for the fans who’ve supported us from the beginning and vindicated those albums across the years, for those who came on board after we thought the albums were dead and buried and also for ourselves – mainly because I have only one copy of the On The Turn LP and I can’t afford to pay the extortionate prices on eBay!”
