Slaughter & The Dogs - Huddersfield England 1980

Everyone probably knows the story about Slaughter & The Dogs by now. They recorded some classic singles and one album between 1977 and 1979. After losing original singer Wayne Barret they brought in Eddie Garrity (aka Ed Banger) formerly of The Nosebleeds to fill the vacancy and released another album and a couple singles, which I think are great. This show features Eddie Garrity singing along with Mick Rossi on guitar, Howard Bates on bass and Phil Rowland on drums. The set features many old classics along with a few songs that were new at the time and ended up on the second album.This is an audience recording and the quality is a bit rough but still listenable.

  1. great band...............thanks for threse recordings

  2. The recording is a bit rough but it is interesting to hear Eddie Garrity singing the classic songs. Plus In The Mind has always been a favorite of mine so it's nice to hear a live version of it.

  3. Nice one, the only live Slaughter stuff I've heard previous is from 77/78. Got any Vibrators stuff bat?

  4. I have one more Slaughter & The Dogs live show from London on the same tour (December 1979)with Wayne singing that gave us the Live At The Factory album. Exact same set, too, but without the Groucho intro. I could post that if you want it.

    The only Vibrators stuff I have is now officially released - 100 Club Punk Fest and BBC In Concert 1977 and Peel with Chris Spedding. There used to be in circulation Vibrators shows from their early 1980s reunion period but I was never able to get a hold of those. One day they'll turn up.
