AMERICAN DOG ‘Red,White,Black & Blue’ (Outlaw Records 2002)

The band feature former Salty Dog/Dangerous Toys vocalist Michael Hannon (who also handles bass duties) along with guitarist Steve Theado and drummer Keith Pickens. `Sh**kicker' starts the album off with a real dirty blues stomp riff! Prime time Blackfoot riffing and Hannon lets rip with his throaty roar! `Train' has some nice guitar and this song wouldn't be out of place on a Buckcherry album. `Glad It's Over' is a Skynyrd style ballad and again guitarist Steve Theado plays some great solos. The other slow burner on the album is `Can't Stop the Rain', which you know is going to be a ballad just from it's title!

`Blame It On The Booze' has some neat slide-guitar and is a rollicking rock `n' roller! Some neat drumming on this as well - very clear production throughout the CD. Title of the album goes to `I Keep Drinkin' (You're Still Ugly)' another barroom style stomp, with guitars to the fore. Album closer is an acoustic knockabout `Bullsh**' - okay on first listen but a track that may tire after a few plays.

For fans of Hannon's old band Salty Dog and anyone who likes Guns 'N' Roses, Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot, Skynyrd, Zakk Wylde's Pride & Glory et al. If you love dirty barroom rock 'n' roll, this is a must! I prefer the rockier tracks, as Hannon's vocals really suit this style of song. He is similar to David Glenn Eisley on the Dirty White Boy album. More please!
