Forming in New Jersey in the late '90s, the Hudson Falcons chase a creative trail assembled halfway on the roots of punk rock fixed by bands like the Clash and the intense marks of pure rock & roll acts like Bruce Springsteen. Constituted by Mark Linskey (vocals, guitar), Chris Lynn (guitar), Craighton Fischer (bass), and Ben Glotzbach (drums), the Falcons started conquering a loyal legion of fans from the very start of their operations due to their crushing live performances. Releasing several split discs with other punk crews during the subsequent years, the New Jersey band decided only to record their debut full-length record in late 1999. Desperation and Revolution, the Falcons' debut album, hit the record stores in 2000 trough the GMM Records label, eventually receiving considerable recognition by the media. One year later, For Those Whose Hearts and Souls Are True, the squad's sophomore effort, corroborated the team's better dominion on the underground punk rock scene.
Dog Company was formed in early 2004 with an obvious bone to pick with the status quo... Whether it be the business as usual politics of D.C., or the ever increasing mediocrity of punk rock. Ex-Staggers front man Joe and bassist Matt decided to return to their roots with the no flash, no gimmick, punchy style of punk rock that Dog Company does so well.
With the release of their first official album “Songs of Discontent” in 2008, Dog Company’s dissatisfaction with the present state of affairs is acutely displayed. With the average song coming in under two minutes and fifteen seconds, its clear that the motto of “rock ‘em in two minutes or don’t do it at all” is definitely at work.
Straight out of the gate Dog Co. not only decries against the attack on individuality and personal freedom (With songs like “Product and Demand” and “Content American”) but also sing of the unity and values they firmly believe in (with title song “Songs of Discontent”). Do not be mislead though, its not all business. With the sing along “Saturday”, Dog Co. shows they are capable of a good time.
Led by the commanding vocals of Joe Blow, and backed by the increased energy of additions Garrett, Shea, and Ron Riot; Dog Company will grab your attention from the first note to the last. In addition to playing with punk legends such as Street Dogs, The Briefs, Lower Class Brats, Vice Squad, Agnostic Front, The Business & Subhumans.
