...Year of the Dog absolutely kicks with frenetic fiddling, sparkling piano, passionate vocals, invigorating pipes, flutes and whistles. This is the perfect mix of energized traditional music underlaid by grungy, driving bass, electric guitar and drums. Original band members Duncan Chisholm, Stuart and Struan Eaglesham, and Ivan Drever are joined by Wayne MacKenzie on bass and Mop Youngson on drums. On this release the group relies on a love and respect for the traditional music of Scotland and combines it with their own generation's hard-driving rock.
