AllMusic Review by

Recorded for K Records' long-running International Pop Underground singles series, "Shouldn't Happen to a Dog" is quintessential Headcoats, a stomping, slashing garage blues rave-up complete with hamfisted guitar solo and feral Billy Childish vocal. The Link Wray-inspired flip side, "Mask of the Squaxin," is yet another in a long line of Native American-themed Childish tunes, this one honoring the Squaxin Island Tribe native to K's home state of Washington.
