You may recall that Boston punk icons Street Dogs played a rather noteworthy St. Patrick’s Day show at the House of Blues in Anaheim a couple weeks back. A couple noodle-brains who fancied themselves neo-Nazis tried disrupting the show and were met with equal amounts of willpower and resolve by the band, the security and fellow concertgoers. Guitar player (and solo artist and until now former Darkbuster frontman) Lenny Lashley took a chair in the eyebrow in the process.
Earlier that very day, Dying Scene editor emeritus Tommy Landaverde had the privilege of catching up with Lashley to record a couple acoustic tracks. First up is “Live Like Lions,” a new Lashley solo number that served as the title track to a recent 7-inch released through Contra Records to mark his recent European tour.
The second is a brand-spanking-new Darkbuster track. You read that right, boys and girls…it’s called “Believe In Packer,” and it marks the first brand new Darkbuster tune to see the light of day since the band’s 2005 album A Weakness for Spirits! The band called it quits not long thereafter, and have only resurfaced in various formats a few times in the years since, most recently for an appearance at the Mighty Mighty Bosstones‘ Hometown Throwdown in 2009. Check out both tracks below…and stay tuned for a gigantic Darkbuster announcement next week!
