about

The SlashDogs Johannesburg, South Africa

“The SlashDogs do things differently from other South African bands… they don’t give a F**K about conforming to the current `standard` rock feel that their competition is putting out. They went back to the roots of real `Rock And Roll`, learnt from it and began to play real rock and roll.” – rockpulse.co.uk ... more

Track Name: Parting Shot
Through with givin’, always on the take and I ain’t got anymore.
A little livin’ on the other side of heaven can I ever be forgiven?
Day out day in, workflow sinking, will you make it will you make it?
Up all night thinking, screaming out loud, little beat up, never breaking.

Don’t you know, We were made for
Don’t you know we were made for
We were made for more

You got your medicine, you got a mortgage and a dog, you got a prison.
Collars up, shoes shining like a mirror with your back against a pillar
Day out day in, workflow sinking, will you make it will you make it?
Up all night thinking, screaming out loud, little beat up, never breaking.

Don’t you know, We were made for
Don’t you know we were made for
We were made for more
Track Name: Ride On
Chasing down the sun, little sister let your hair down
Burning up the atmosphere, tearing up the underground
Shotgun at the dancehall, everybody on the ground
Staking our claim, taking hits until we head into another town

By the time day breaks, in the morning we’ll be gone
And the burden on our backs lifted with the sun

Open like a register, feet up on the dashboard
Closer than we’ve ever been, further from wanting more
Carry out our enterprise, fire like inhibition
Hand on the switch, throwing knives in the night without direction

By the time day breaks, in the morning we’ll be gone
And the burden on our backs lifted with the sun
By the time day breaks, in the morning we are gone
If you’re riding down our way, ride on

Whenever we come, wherever we go, whatever we done, nobody undo
Till you and I die and die and die and die again, till death do us part.
Track Name: Some Kind Of Heaven (feat. Hog Hoggidy Hog)
Well the drums were going wild at the Nile Crocodile
Mikey held up the bar with that hair and a smile
We were running in circles We were runnin' for miles
And George and the boys would sing
Oh and George and the boys would sing

Kids are down at the lot hanging out by the cars
As the Hogs started rumbling down to the bar
The floor's getting sticky, the air's a cigar
And George and the boys would sing
Oh and George and the boys would sing

It's a pantomime, every act it's allotted time
Charging till the bell is rung until the music's done
Charging till we reach the sun

Break the circle and run
Break the circle and run
Break the circle and run
Break the circle and run

Miguel look kinda nervous when it get outta hand
George holding up the roof introducing the band
Round back somebody looking for a one night stand
While George and the boys would sing
Oh and George and the boys would sing

It's a pantomime, every act it's allotted time
Charging till the bell is rung until the music's done
Charging till we reach the sun

Break the circle and run
Break the circle and run
Break the circle and run
Break the circle and run

And the years roll past and the boundaries move,
'cause the more you live, the less you can prove
Well you lived your time and you lived it true
Now what's left of the boys can sing
Now it's up to the boys to sing
Track Name: In Liverpool
In Liverpool
On Sunday
No traffic
On the avenue
The light is pale and thin
Like you
No sound, down
In this part of town
Except for the boy in the belfry
He's crazy, he's throwing himself
Down from the top of the tower
Like a hunchback in heaven
He's ringing the bells in the church
For the last half an hour
He sounds like he's missing something
Or someone that he knows he can't
Have now and if he isn't
I certainly am

Homesick for a clock
That told the same time
sometimes you made no sense to me
if you lie on the ground
in somebody's arms
you'll probably swallow some of their history

And the boy in the belfry
He's crazy, he's throwing himself
Down from the top of the tower
Like a hunchback in heaven
He's ringing the bells in the church
For the last half an hour
He sounds like he's missing something
Or someone that he knows he can't
Have now and if he isn't
I certainly am

I'll be the girl who sings for my supper
You'll be the monk whose forehead is high
He'll be the man who's already working
Spreading a memory all through the sky

In Liverpool
On Sunday
No reason to even remember you now

Except for the boy in the belfry
He's crazy, he's throwing himself
Down from the top of the tower
Like a hunchback in heaven
He's ringing the bells in the church
For the last half an hour
He sounds like he's missing something
Or someone that he knows he can't
Have now and if he isn't
I certainly am
Track Name: Too Close To See
In a smoked out room, is where I met you
You were clad in black and grey
And you heard the notes from the devil's lyre
That tore your heart away
And you went off into the darkest night
That forgotten hill
But you returned, right next to me
You were to close to see

This town’s light, the city night is smoldering
Blistered asphalt, tempered by these hearts of desire

No matter how tight the grip or how you hold on
If the moment is seized, it's already gone
Like the crack of a Bullwhip with it's temporary sting
It was all over, 'fore we noticed anything.

When we're battered from side to side
Will we stay by my side?
And all is lost to the rising tide
Will you be standing by (my side)

Wandering through the valleys, old rivers of shale
Shoulder to shoulder, hammer tooth n' nail
We have all been wounded by that treacherous cross
By this boon I'm sober albeit a cost

25 years of progress measured one step at time
For a moment , lift my gaze and see your engines burning
I vow that if we lose our way, this contract signed in blood
I will not be deafened, made callous or blinded to your light

When we're battered from side to side
Will you stay by my side
Succumbing to the rising of the tide
Will you be standing by
When we're battered from side to side
Will we stay by my side?
And all is lost to the rising tide
Will you be standing by (my side)
