Slaughter and The Dogs - It's Alright


On this date in 1979, Slaughter & The Dogs released their first EP (after several singles). The four track 12-inch record contained "It's Alright", "Twist & Turn","Edgar Allan Poe" and "UFO". None of these songs would appear on a studio album by the band but all would be included on their compilation, Cranked Up Really High. The four tracks were actually demos recorded in 1976. The Manchester, England punk band disbanded in 1978 but re-formed in 1979. They hung it up again in 1981. They are currently together and performing live which seems to be an on again, off again thing.
