Lead by founding members Frank Meyer (vocals, guitar), Dino Everett (bass), Mike Sessa (drums) and nu-Cheetah guitarist Bruce Duff (ADZ, 45 Grave, Jeff Dahl), The Streetwalkin' Cheetahs will be touring for the first time since their 2002 breakup, playing songs off their heralded albums Live on KXLU, Waiting For the Death of My Generation, Maximum Overdrive, Red Tape Diaries, Gainesville and more.
THE DOGS grew up in the Lansing/Detroit/Ann Arbor late 60’s music scene. THE DOGS rocked hard, fast and precise (energy-maniacs onstage they may have been, their proficiency as teens cast them practically as rock prodigies) with their own original songs from the get-go. They opened for the likes of MC5, Stooges, Amboy Dukes with Ted Nugent, SRC etc. etc. etc. throughout the late '60s/early '70s.

By late 1973 THE DOGS moved to NYC opening for Kiss, The Stilettos (proto-Blondie,) Television and all manner of punks watchful of THE DOGS' pared-down but hardcore Detroit rock performed in their own torn jeans and leather jackets ("Our normal street clothes because," laughs bassist MARY KAY, "we couldn't afford stage clothes.") Relocation to Hollywood mid-decade would find them opening for AC/DC, The Ramones, Van Halen, The Motels, Y+T, New Order.

1978 saw THE DOGS move to the UK to live and tour in support of the now legendary "Slash Your Face" EP on their own distributed Detroit Records. After great reviews and packed shows the band ended up squatting in vacant houses living on the streets of London because of the bands financial backing pulled out. When the band returned to LA the scene had changed and the band broke up. The rock and roll dreams of not being signed to major label took their toll on the band.

From the time they stopped performing as "The Dogs", their early singles started to be sold in the underground scenes of Europe and Japan for several hundreds of dollars each due to a base of fans made up of mid 70's to late 70's Detroit type punk fans. Due to this activity, a new generation discovered The Dogs.

The classic Detroit sound was vindicated though thousands of rock fans and bands, continuing to this very second. And THE DOGS' reputation via the emerging internet had accelerated their doggy tale into its present, deserved status of bona fide, singular, committed, hardest rock/power trio/punk rock legends.

In 2000 Lee Joseph from Dionysus Records released the compilation LP called "Fed Up" of the 70's singles and tracks were recorded live in San Francisco for the "Slash Your Face" 1978 EP. 2001 saw the band playing shows in the LA area. The "Suburban Nightmare” LP on Dionysus came out in 2003.

In the Far East of the globe, an aggregate of 29 assorted Japanese alt-punk bands styled an entire tribute cd to THE DOGS entitled "Doggy Style," by Detroit Jack's Future Now Records. Then came THE DOGS' tour of Japan in 2007 to capacity-filled venues of rabid Dogs' fans.

2009 saw the band play the SXSW Festival in Austin & the NXNE festival in Toronto. In 2013 they were asked back to play the SXSW Festival and a return trip to Tokyo for 5 shows.

In Jan 2016 the band’s newest release will be a new 4 song 7” vinyl release of titled “Ain’t Going Nowhere on Elvis Cortez’s label Smelvis Records.

Blank TV World Premier Link: “Ain’t Going Nowhere”

For THE DOGS-Mary Kay, Loren Molinare & Tony Matteucci, their enduring credo was Do It Anyway, come hell, high water or against the foremost enemy of rock and roll, the passage of time. Just... Do It Anyway.

Angelo Moore - Dr. Maddvibe & the Missin' Links
Vocalist – Musician – Composer – Poet – Satirist – Performance Artist

Angelo Moore began his career in the early l980s as lead singer, saxophonist, and creative force behind the legendary band, Fishbone. Fishbone’s ability to blend social commentary and humor with a blazing fusion of rock, punk, funk, jazz, ska, reggae, gospel and R&B led to their recognition as one of the most notable acts in American music. After over 25 years in the biz, Moore continues his role as frontman of Fishbone. The band has released l0 full-length albums. They have created the music for movies such as “Last Action Hero” (Arnold Schwarzennager), “The Mask” (Jim Carrey) and been featured with roles in movies such as “Idlewild” (Outkast) and “I’m Gonna Get You Sucka” (Keenan Wayan). Angelo has additionally collaborated with the likes of Little Richard, Curtis Mayfield, George Clinton, Rick James and Spike Lee to name but a few.

A versatile artist, Angelo performs under the guise of his wildly energetic alter ego, Dr. Madd Vibe. Linking poetry, performance and music, this visceral artist’s solo performances range from pure spoken word and movement to playing the Theremin and various saxophones as well as reciting poetry accompanied by the Dr. Madd Vibe Aukestra. Stemming from his experiences growing up as a “fly in the buttermilk” in the predominantly white suburbs of Los Angeles, Angelo Moore addresses “Real Racism,” “Social Corrosion,” “Spiritual Overtones,” “Family Affairs,” “Personal Satisfactions and Suffocations” and the human condition in a world gone mad. Dr. Madd Vibe brings a spiritual and cathartic dimension to his performances in the tradition of innovators such as George Clinton, Sun Ra and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Between l997 and 2010, his solo efforts have spawned literary books and comic books that come equipped with soundtracks and the full-length album entitled “Dr. Maddvibe’s Medicine Cabinet” in which he wrote and played all of the music and instruments. Angelo has also created a Dr. Maddvibe orchestra with whom he has directed and performed in venues in the United States and in Europe.

Angelo Moore has taken his spoken word and sound power to the stage throughout the world and has appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show, The Magic Johnson Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and Roseanne show. Angelo has performed as a poet at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Black Rock Coalition benefits and was featured speaker of the Spitfire Tour. Most recently, he has published “Dr. Madd Vibe’s Ivy League Invasion,” a book of poetry published in conjunction with his artist residency at Yale University (2007).
