********** NEW RAWK DAWG Reviews **********

Demo Critiques - Executive committee

Thumbing it''s snout at studio trickery, this Dawg''s concept is to have it''s members plug in and - with no prior rehearsal - rip into some from-the-gut blues rock music until an "unpolished gem of rock" emerges. On the band''s second full-legther, the results are right up any classic rock fan''s alley. Robin Trower, Bad Company, Steve Marriot and Grand Funk are all avidly channeled by these seasoned, hard-hitting musicians. "Are You Still My Lover" stands out.

The second CD from California''s RAWK DAWG features more blistering rock and roll with
whiskey blues fueled vocals slightly reminiscent of Phil Lynot. Growling guitars and gritty
rhythms take their cues from Kings X, KISS and the Black Crowes. This band is one that has
that uncanny knack of taking a fairly simple approach to rock and squeezing every microcosm of
power out of every aspect they can. This makes for powerfully enjoyable music.

"WE ONLY CAME TO ROCK", RAWK DAWG''s new CD, is raw, hard edged, in your-face
rock with a classic rock appeal. Their music stems from the gut, drawing from their separate
backgrounds in commercial music. The band info says they don''t write and rehearse songs and
go into the studio to record them - their technique is to bring scattered words and improv raw
rock music until the song emerges on it''s own. "Whatever. It works!"

RAWK DAWG: We Only Came To Rock: It''s time to ROCK OUT! (Or is it?)
Among their musical influences, Redondo Beach''s Rawk Dawg counts Van Halen, The Rolling Stones, Deep Purple and Bad Company. When the first track on their second album, "We Only Came to Rock" kicks in, these influences are clearly heard. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then this improvisation-focused group wears their loyalty to the history of hard rock on their sleeves. But that''s not to say that there is nothing of value or interest in their music. I can''t profess any inordinate love for any of the bands listed as Rawk Dawg''s favorites, but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed their music. The production on the disc is completely without frills, and unlike a lot of music, you can easily pick out the two different guitars, the bass, the drums and the vocals. There''s no "atmosphere" on this album, just the hard pumping of the music like a bawdy https://www.tradebit.com the better tracks on the CD, such "Are You Still My Lover" and "Did I Get Lucky," Rawk Dawg makes you feel like you''re sitting in the garage of some friend,
listening to the latest songs that his weekend band has come up with. If you let your mind wander, you could even mistake these songs for covers of existing rock songs. This isn''t a bad thing. In fact, it''s the thing that appeals most about this album. The lyrics aren''t poetry: "When
you feel an earthquake shaking your bed/well don''t call CalTech, cause it''s all in your head/It''s just me/making love to you." But these guys are classically trained in the style of music where the only "movements" are those in your feet, in your fists and in your hips. Rawk Dawg will not
be changing the world with their music, and they might not be doing anything new, but they deliver what they promise: straightforward, no nonsense rock music.

"Rawk Dawg", The West coast guitar driven rock monster, has just released their 2nd disk called "We Only Came To Rock" and it quickly dispels the notion that second efforts frequently lose steam. In a thousand years, when they open the great time capsule of rock n'' roll music from the second Millennium, they will find these guys still
steaming. People keep saying that rock n'' roll will go the way of Ragtime and 20''s American Jazz and Big Band dancing music and Late 40''s swing and so on and so on but all I can tell you is that my 15 year old son took my copy of this disk and he won''t give it back. Nuff said, Dudes! These guys pay homage to the very beginnings of what makes us all bob our heads to this music - like the days of Savoy Brown and The Vagrants and drumming like Corky Laing (of Mountain) and Ginger Baker (of Cream) -- Rawk Dawg isn''t touring right now and we wonder why? At least they should be putting out DVD''s of them jamming at home so the younger folks can play them on their 42" plasma screens...."

RAWK DAWG - WE ONLY CAME TO ROCK: & they ain''t lyin'', people! Edgy stuff here that''ll keep yer'' earz'' on their toes! I only had to listen to the 9 tracks once to know this is a cracker-jack top-rawker! Thrum-hard drums crackle like thunder under (& sometimes in front of) guitars that bring to mind Robin Trower on steroids... on "Hook Up" (my favorite track), there are pea-gravel vocals that grate against your "nice" tendencies & reveal your inner emotions for what they (really) are - raw & sore! Another great cut is track 5, "Did I Get Lucky"... about th'' early onset of Parkinson''s, perhaps? Heh! Heh! Pretty rough when you can''t
even remember what yer'' GOT last night, but I remember LOTS of nites when I couldn''t remember (in th'' BAD ol'' daze, o'' course). I still think these guys ought to put some CREDITS
on th'' jacket somewhere, but maybe they''re on th'' run from George W. Bush, or somethin''. This second CD (we reviewed their first one over HERE), earns them a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
for all greased-lightning rock fans... GREAT album, folks... keep ''em coming!
