Album- new. Release date: 20/11/20. Yellow vinyl
The cult Irish alt-rock quartet, Kerbdog, team up with Hassle Hindsight, the recently launched re-issue label from the team at Hassle Records, to re-release their 1994 self-titled debut and its heralded 1997 follow-up On The Turn, their last full studio album before their first break-up in 1998.
On The Turn – which was recorded with Garth Richardson at the legendary Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California – was a near perfect album, one that front-man Cormac Battle most recently described as "the right album, at the wrong time".
The band's songs were powerful and inspired - like those early Dave Grohl songs of the same era - by the likes of Husker Du, and then Bob Mould's subsequent work in Sugar; both direct and melodic, heavy but immediate. Kerbdog were, to many, their new favourite band.
However the explosive success of Britpop meant that their singles were at odds with daytime radio playlists and the mainstream press of the time, seeing them subsequently dropped by Mercury Records, two albums into a six-album contract. They struggled on for a year before playing their final show in Dublin the following year.
