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.
