happy 2015 from dog like status

Happy New Year Folks! Another solar orbit has begun. We had a blast in 2014 and we’re intent on making 2015 even more fun! Last Year During 2014 we managed to get ourselves a website up and running (so you can read shit like this), we played a few gigs around town with some pretty decent bands (The Fifty-Four Plates spring to mind as being pretty cool) and released… Read More »

radio dial

Why is it so hard to get music played on major radio stations? For any unsigned band or DIY musician getting your song played on the radio amounts to gold dust. It is still the best form of advertising for a band or artist’s work. And its the type of advertising that brings in sales. With the advent of the internet and the expansion of radio in to the… Read More »

Lenny and Ash, dog like status, at band practice

For all those interested we thought we’d keep you up to date with our glacial progress towards rock messiahs. (right, remove tongue firmly away from cheek, and proceed….) Band Blurb Having been evicted from his last house, Ash, commendably got his arse in gear and sorted himself a new flat.

Ash and Tim sporting their new look barnets as the band take five at Brickhouse Studios.

After a long and wet three month break, the Dogs finally got back together in the rehearsal rooms and resumed playing. The reason for the three month abstinence was because Tim decided to go all Ravi Shankar and buggered off to India for Christmas and New Year and, well, most of winter. Upon his return it was clear that Tim had a rather enlightening vacation. This was part induced… Read More »

Here's Lenny and Tim trying to fix our stage banner to the curtain backdrop. Ash is tearing gaffer tape.

As any band will tell you, being noticed is crucial. Even within the confines of a local music scene there can be hundreds of bands playing the circuit. This is especially true of Brighton & Hove with its larger than average diverse artistic crowd, music colleges and universities. So how does a band stand out? Well the obvious way is to make some pretty damn mind blowing music and… Read More »

Johnimal, one time drummer for Dog Like Status, Brighton

Drummers are mad. Fact. Johnimal is a drummer. Therefore Johnimal is mad. Fact. Without doubt Johnimal had the capacity to make the  late Keith Moon look like the UN ambassador for Sanity. John, or Johnimal, or Jack, or Jack Mercer, or John O Paddy the Pirate or whatever name he chose to call himself at the time was our drummer between 2011  and  early 2013. He was the second… Read More »
