The Cur Dogs


The Cur Dogs The Cur Dogs dumped all pretense 5 exits back. Led by guitarist Jeff German and front man Tal Lohr, the Cur Dog's songs realize the blue collar America that gets lost as planes fly over and trucks drive by. They paint a musical scene that brings the humor, horror, and triumph that makes the forgotten parts of this country what they are. Disciplined, learned musicianship makes their album and live shows a manifestation of the characters that populate the songs. Read more on Last.fm
The Cur Dogs The Cur Dogs dumped all pretense 5 exits back.

Seldom does a band seem to inhabit the tradition, character, and personality of their own protagonists, but The Cur Dogs do just that. When you have no pretense, you can be who and what you are, with full abandon. > "Genuine", "Bona fide". "The Real Thing". These are words that have been used to describe The Cur Dogs.

Tal Lohr's voice is as rough as his hands, wrought with the labor and forelorned pain of Midwestern life. Love, loss, double cross and heart-ache are all prominent in his voice and obvious in his demeanour. The Cur Dogs provide snapshots of a life that doesn't always go as planned and often leads to desperation and disappointment. Tal Lohr, together with friend, writing partner, and lead guitarist Jeff German formed The Cur Dogs in the Fall of 2008.

The Cur Dogs are equal parts home-grown ditties and visceral rants. Throttled with the power of three guitars across the front (Tal Lohr, vocals, guitar/,Jeff German/lead guitar, Steve McGann/bass) the Cur Dogs are aptly named; for as a band, they don't bother to bark but go straight to the growl.

The Cur Dogs are one such band. There’s nothing here that we haven’t heard many times before, and these guys do the familiar stuff but with a little more panache than others. ‘No Crosses’ oozes Southern bluesy soul coming outta the speakers like oil on a Louisiana beach, and tends to hang around just as long, as Tal Lohr growls out the lyric, accompanied by some rock’n’roll guitar that doesn’t go on long enough. ‘Ferris Wheel’ introduces some slide guitar that ambles gently along and complements another soulful outing, as does ‘Window’, but with a tad more urgency.

‘Tattoo The Devil’ is a gruff, grumpy and dirty song that provides some nonsensical lyricism like “The only tattoo the devil got is a picture of me” but it’s delivered with a sense of humour and very much tongue in cheek, ably assisted by some soaring guitar riffing and histrionics. '75 or 94', written by Jeff German, shows the quieter more sensitive side to the band, with its simple guitar picking and mellow approach and having to make a decision about which road to choose to the girl of his dreams. German’s ‘Apology In Every Song’ is a standard riff, chorus, riff, and chorus arrangement, but is all the better for it. ‘Kro-Bide’ is a catchy little ditty that explains something that’s beyond me.

Probably some sort of complicated scientific theory; I don’t know, but it sounds clever to these non educated ears. Or maybe it’s about motor bikes, or power tools or both. The tracks on this album gives us glimpse of what these guys are good at. It all depends where the needle drops.
