Here is a little story about the lads

DOGTOOTH

Dogtooth are made up of John Hewitson– lead guitar and vocals, Craig Morrison – Bass Guitar and Robert Lang – Drums and backing vocals.  John and Craig met in August 2013 at the Millport Scooter Rally, with Robert completing the trio on drums eight months later.  Taking influences from the likes of The Jam, The Who, Oasis, The Stone Roses, The Clash, The Stranglers, Catfish and The Bottlemen and The Libertines to name a few, they play not only their favourite covers but have now also released some of their own materiel,

Dogtooth are honoured to have supported bands such as Heaven 17, Secret Affair, The Spitfires, Bruce Foxton’s The Jam, Skaface and The Selecter, they are now looking forward to their support slots with The Vapors in June. 

Celebrating  100 live gigs in March 2016 saw the release of a vinyl single, the A side if which  “Get in Get out” which was included in Well Suspect Records‘ compilation album entitled  “Generation Mod“  released on 29th April.  The rerelease of their latest single REBEL in December has given them airplay on Mr Jim Gellatly’s Amazing Radio and Mr Billy Sloan’s BBC Radio Scotland show.
Having had the opportunity to twice headline the Next Generation concert in the famous Glasgow Barrrowlands they have also had the privilege to perform in the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool and after such a good reception have been invited back to play again this year. 

They were honoured to have been given the opportunity to perform  within the Cunard Buildings in Liverpool as part of the “About The Young Idea“The Jam Exhibition.
Dogtooth took part in LNP Promotions‘  production “I Was There“ (the story of the Glasgow Appollo) in the SECC Armadillo which was a huge success. 
As teenagers they are proud to be involved with March Of The Mods, opening and closing the Glasgow event, performing in Aberdeen and this year looking forward to their first performance at both Chester and London helping to raise thousands of pounds for The Teenage Cancer Trust.
Approaching now what will be almost 200 live gigs,  the boys are currently working on and recording their own material and plan to release an EP on the 19th of May this year  with a performance in the HMV store in Glasgow and with their future goal to be to release an album of their own.
