Noisy, wild and ballsy rock and roll from renowned saxophonist and band leader Chuck Higgins. Mostly remembered for his Mexican themed hit ‘Pachuko Hop’, this lesser known side was an attempt by Chuck to cash in on the craze for all things canine in the wake of Mama Thornton’s ‘Hound Dog’. And there is definitely an unhinged feel to proceedings, as if all the members of the band are competing to be the loudest with the piano player in particular has long since abandoned any polite notions of subtlety and restraint!
