Born in the Northern California burb of Sunnyvale, The Radio Dogs – lead singer/songwriter/guitarist Rob Dobbins, Rob’s brother, bassist Joey Dobbins, guitarist Timmy Cupps and drummer Mike Atlee – started playing in high school auditoriums and house parties. It didn’t take long before the band’s exciting, gut-punch performances had audiences going wild in clubs all over the San Francisco Bay Area. By summer 1981 The Radio Dogs were ready to give it the big-time “go” and hit the road for Hollywood.
This double live album, recorded at two separate house concerts in October of 1981 – just months after they arrived in Southern California - showcases one of the most fiercely original, no-nonsense, emotionally riveting bands at the absolute top of their game. If there was ever a testament to the fickle nature of the music business and “who gets to be famous,” this raw burst of electricity from a truly great band that somehow got lost in the smog is proof positive.
