King’s X – Dogman

07 Feb, 2015

Album: Dogman (1994), Atlantic

One of those bands, whose name excites appreciating head nodding of many, however, only a few have actually heard their album. So I gave it a try myself. “Dogman” stunned me with terrific riffs, soul soaked vocals, a rock solid rhythm section and a really heavy sound. If you would like to verify the praising rumours one day around King’s X, start right here.

Give me a dollar or give me 50 cents
Let me take it back if that ain’t what I meant

Give me a coat or give me a bite
Give me a light bulb and make sure it’s bright
Give me the moon or give me everywhere
Give me some powder to spray up in the air, up in the air

Let me take my thoughts away
To think about another day
Remembering the times I pray
To help me deal with me to be the dogman

Give me some attention, lend me your ear
Give me what to do and get me out of here
Give me a book, give me something to read
Give me a horse race and give me who’s the lead, who’s the lead

Let me take my thoughts away
To think about another day
Remembering the times I pray
To help me deal with me to be the dogman

To be the dogman
To be the dogman
To be the dogman
To be the dogman, dogman

All the sleeping never waking
All the leaves in need of raking
All the business undertaking
All my bones and muscles aching

Thoughts and mind are surely flaking
Over luncheons hands are shaking
Surety of no mistaking
Cars and horns and glass is breaking

Give me a color, make it black or white
Give me a newspaper, tell me if it’s right, tell me
Give me a nail or give me a bat
Give me a skinny or give me a fat, give me

Remembering the times I pray
To let me take my thoughts away
To think about another day
To help me deal with me
To help me deal with me to be the dogman

To be the dogman, dogman
To be the dogman
To be the dogman
