Artist discography


Riverdogs! What a great band,Rob Lamothe, Vivian Campbell, Nick Brophy and Marc Denzeisen reunited in 2003 to record a new album that never was completed and for a few shows. However, thanks to Andrew McNeice, the band finished the songs and recorded 2 new songs for a release in September this year. The album also includes a cover of Badfinger´s "No matter what", still we only get 7 new Riverdogs tracks which is better than nothing I guess but I wanted a full album. I truly love their 2 first albums from 1990 and 1993, I was also lucky to see the band live in my hometown back in 1994 performing in front of a small audience of only 10-15 people. But Lamothe didn´t care, they played for 2 hours and I remember we requested song after song that night, a memory to last forever. The new songs are great, this is what classic rock is all about! A little bluesy, riffy, rootsy and very melodic with Lamothe´s splendid voice over it. The title track "World gone mad" belong on a Best of collection no doubt, just as much as the amazing "Best day of my life". Those harmonies aren´t to play with, lovely.

Did you know that?

311 is the police code for indecent exposure in Omaha, Nebraska. The name was erroneously thought to be an allusion to the Ku Klux Klan, and band members have given various other explanations in the past.
