Classic Line-Up Of The Dogs D’amour Return With “Flameboy” Video
February 10, 2013
The classic line-up of The Dogs D’amour is back with a brand new video for their recent single “Flameboy”. The iconic line-up of Tyla (vocals and guitar), Bam (drums), Jo Dog (guitar) and Steve James (bass) have reunited for a string of tour dates beginning on February 22nd at London’s Borderline.
In the late ’80s The Dogs D’amour were regarded as one of the coolest underground rock bands with their bluesy, heartfelt sing-along anthems and ramshackle style. With something exceptional to the norm they did not go unnoticed and appeared on Top of The Pops and MTV, graced the covers of Kerrang, RAW, and Sounds, toured successfully worldwide several times, created a cult like following in UK, Japan and Europe, and released such timeless albums as ‘In The Dynamite Jet Saloon’, ‘A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles’, ‘Errol Flynn’, and ‘Straight??!!. .
After the band went their separate ways in the early nineties they briefly got together in 2000 to record ‘Happy Ever After’ then in 2002 opened for Alice Cooper all over Europe and UK. Since then all members have kept their music alive through their own various guises.
Frontman Tyla has continued to record many solo albums and tour as a solo artist. He is also a published writer and painter, and has developed a dedicated following. Bassist Steve James formed Slyder, a funk blues band and is now a sought after luthier and has opened a successful guitar shop. Guitarist Jo Dog is a frequently hired session musician, painter and sculptor. Drummer Bam toured USA, UK and Japan with his band Bubble and has recently launched his hand forged silver jewelry collection.
Over the years fans have campaigned tirelessly for a reunion of sorts and many had given up all hope of ever seeing them back together. However news that a dear friend of the band was in need of urgent medical treatment has inspired these four kind hearts to reunite and raise funds through their music.
So now for the first time the ultimate classic line-up of Tyla, Steve, Jo and Bam are back! They will be performing classics such as “How Come It Never Rains”, “Satellite Kid” and “I Don’t Want You To Go” as well treating fans to some exquisite new material.
