I’m more than a tad excited at the announcement below.

A single.

An Album.

A TOUR.

It’s been a while in cloistered hiatus, but the Family Dog and I are releasing a single (‘Blind Devotion’), an album (Bark Overtures) on November 2 and doing an Australian club/pub/theatre tour named ‘Summer Of The Dog’ in sporadic bursts between late November and January. 

The record has taken a while to finish but the planets lined up when I was at a loose end early this year. Kent Steedman and I reviewed 12 years of random Dog recordings, or shards of the lost historical documents as we preferred to call them. (We record a lot for recreational purposes.) And found them anything but excruciatingly dull. We found many gemstones there and pressed ahead in editing, recasting and mixing these fragments of excellence. It’s a full live-off-the-floor rock recording with certain trademark psychedelic twists which you may even find quite entertaining. 

The Family Dog is guitarist Kent Steedman and drummer Paul Loughhead from Northern Beaches legends and punk rockers The Celibate Rifles, plus multi instrumentalist Tim Kevin from La Huva, Exiles and Youth Group. Live, I just love this band. We reformed a few years ago for a friend’s 50th and I’d forgotten how amazing the band is, travelling from a whisper to a scream, from a blitzkrieg, to trippy psychedelia, with the odd Oil’s classic thrown in for good measure. We’ve done several warmup shows at Coalcliff Surf Club’s ‘Bombie Bar’ so we’re ready to, well, bark.

Below is the spiel which includes the ‘Summer Of The Dog’ tour dates and tickets are on sale via the links below. Head over to FB for more morsels re the individual events, great supports (being worked out now) and the like.

Looking forward to seeing you out there somewhere.

Love Jim

Back in 2006 Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil) founded The Family Dog to promote his first solo album ‘Alas Folkloric’. They went on to perform and tour together. In November and December 2018, The Family Dog is hitting the road after a long hiatus and showcasing songs and tunes from the new album ‘Bark Overtures’ , recorded live at Oceanic Studios. It will be released on November 5 by Sony Music Australia on CD and vinyl and Orchard digitally in worldwide.

Are you with me? Hope so. I’ve written a love letter to these guys, and I stand by every word.
