Thanks to everyone who pledged their support through 'Kickstart' for Slaughter and the Dogs 40th Anniversary gig. The level of support means it will deffinitely go ahead on Friday 9th October 2015 at the Ruby Lounge in Manchester.
Please note that even if you supported the project, you will still have to purchase a ticket yourself, as we fell slightly short of THE 'Funding Goal', which means Kickstart's automatic collection process will NOT now go ahead!
Hailing from the notoriously tough Manchester suburb of Wythenshawe (once the skinhead capital of the North) Slaughter & The Dogs originally formed when Wayne Barrett (vocals) and Mick Rossi (guitar) got togetther at school and decided to start a band picking up drummer, Brian (Mad Muffett) Grantham on a bus along the way! Bassist Howared 'Zip' Bates joined them in late 1975. Wayne thought up the name for the band whilst lying in bed prior to their first gig.... a mixture of Diamond Dogs by Bowie and Slaughter on 5th Avenue By Mick Ronson.
The first Album Do It Dog Style (1978 Decca) collects these Decca singles with other prime cuts as Victim Of The Vampire, Boston Babies and a cover of the New York Dolls' Mystery Girls.
