Bird Dog / Bio

Bird Dog

Bird Doggers Rory and Ryan ply a devilishly stylish and stylishly devilsome take on hip, hep an' bloozy alt.country fare. With a nod to The Black Keys and a wink to Kings of Leon, they kick up a glorious mess of bad ass trickster boogie. Lowdown chooglin' Americana with an edge and a bite. Easy, greazy, powerful and moving stuff. Texas Quixotica, if you will.
Dem boys know how to party!

Ross Fortune

Owner, Phoenix Saloon

There's a long stretch of steel guitar

Hanging over the southland

Long crimson cries

Short bursts of harmonica

Cymbal crash like that Jesus rain

The sound of the time -- the place-- the feel

It's getting cold

And it comes across in swift punch love

Like love letters gripping to the walls

Romance falling out of the fourth story

My brothers in long red hair

Jam, ride, hang, slide

It gets calm for a cold second

And then the rift roar rock

Comes down on the clergy

Like an avalanche followed by that

Heartwarming heartache ROLL RUSH RAH

And the children file in the dancehall for more

Theres no expression left on there faces

They can't handle the honesty

Like good art makes a common kid do

Theres life being lived

Beat red bouncing off the black and white

Chizzling out personality like strong drink

And I start thinking--

This could be that wooden door step gospel

The philosophy of those painted downtown talks

The harvest of long white nights and hard mornings

The comming of the dawn

For a new age of song

It's a poetry machine alamode

It's the scent in the nose

It's the sound in the ear

Of that ole howling Bird Dog

By The Mouth of the South
