DIAMOND DOGS – Weekend Monster (2020)

Wild Kingdom Recordes is reissuing one Sweden’s best kept rock ‘n’ roll secrets, DIAMOND DOGS‘ two long out of print EPs into one CD titled “Weekend Monster“, which of course, being prime retro-glam rock influenced by Mott The Hoople, Roy Wood-era ELO, The New York Dolls, and The Faces, is also available on vinyl LP.
‘Weekend Monster‘ brings together their two classic, long out of print EPs ‘Among The Non Believers’ and ‘Shortplayer’ on one sexy slab of colored vinyl, with a new running order and cool as you like new artwork.
Legendary producer Tomas Skogsberg takes the helm as usual to capture the 70’s vibes to the max; rough, smoky vocals brilliantly mixed with honky tonk piano and laid back guitars. The warm atmosphere brings the air of 1973 and the energy of the songs and performance give a promise of rock music for the new generation.
