On The Turn
Most recently dispatched: 24 January
Vinyl reissue of the classic 1997 album from Kerbdog.
"On The Turn" – which was recorded with Garth Richardson at the legendary Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California – was a near perfect album, one that front-man Cormac Battle most recently described as "the right album, at the wrong time". Their 1994 self-titled debut was recorded with Jack Endino, the producer of Nirvana's "Bleach", at Rockfield Studios, with Sepultura recording Chaos A.D. at the same time next door. Cormac says of their raw debut record: "I think some of what they were doing seeped into what we were doing. It made the record heavier and more chunky than we intended, but we were happy with the results."
Kerbdog are one of the most underrated bands ever. Their debut album and "On The Turn" should be part of everyone’s rock education. They opened my eyes to what was possible with riffs and melody and they’re the reason we worked with Garth Richardson on our last three records. It’s a crime that Kerbdog are not held aloft by every band in the country as heroes.” - Simon Neil, Biffy Clyro
“Kerbdog were one of my gateway bands. I got into them through Kerrang! cover-mount CDs and they were just unlike anything I’d ever head at the time – so powerful, heavy and yet melodic. They totally opened my eyes to a new genre, and remain one of my favourite bands.” - Frank Turner
