2006 is The Year of the Dog, dog…

Dog Fashion Disco? Just where the hell has dog fashion gone? Chihuahuas in Burberry are now a common sight on the streets of West Los Angeles, if that counts for anything. Disco I will hold dear forever. I make no apologies my declaration of independence or lunacy. I think it was more fun grooving on the floor to a good Gap Band song back then than it is now, getting in the pit at a Madball show, having the fuck kicked out of you. I thought that the Village People’s music really sucked ass, however, and since the members of the band were allegedly all practicing butt ranchers … well … it might have been easy for the guys to endorse their own shit. Rim shot, please!

CD review?

Dog Fashion Disco has just released their fifth studio album, Adultery, and this may be the best offering of DFD’s brand of “Movie Metal” to date. A concept record that takes its listener on a thrilling musical journey while going into the mind of a seemingly normal man on the verge of going mad, Adultery tells a story like a good concept record does.

If you have ever thought of doing drugs, having sex with prostitutes, going into the dark, forbidden chasms of your restless mind and killing in a blind rage then give this record a spin. If you’re already in your prison cell from caving in to those impulses then Adultery is for you, too. The banjo-laden song, “Desert Grave”, is oddly amazing (it’s so Dog Fashion Disco), and seems to have been divinely placed in the track sequence to set a cool, western mood -- without the twang.

Dog Fashion Disco mixed the right formula of jazz, lounge and metal music on this - while throwing in some Rod Serling meets Andrew Lloyd Webber, who met Sergio Leone, while dropping acid at Studio 54 - type-thing here and there, to give it a lusty, mystery novel tone. Adultery is a cornucopia of aural treasures and guilty pleasures that paint sexy, murderous and often humorous pictures. Its multifaceted four-dimensional instrumentals and thoughtfully penned lyrics are brilliant and sickly seductive.
