Slaughter & The Dogs exploded onto the British music scene in 1976 at the now legendary Manchester Free Trade Hall gig with The Sex Pistols, an event which was to change musical history forever.
They were the first band in Manchester, England to release an independent single “Cranked Up Really High” in 1977. Q Magazine voted this landmark release as one of the top 50 punk singles of all time.
Slaughter & The Dogs debut album “Do It Dog Style” is now hailed as a classic. One of the founding forefathers of the British Punk Rock movement, Slaughter & The Dogs remain to this day a force to be reckoned with. Their live shows are legendary and incendiary and so they continue to tour and headline major festivals around the world.
They are true Punk Rock Legends.
The band’s influences can be felt near and far, from local Manchester boys -The Stone Roses to Johnny Marr & Oasis to name but three; to the American Super group Green Day.
