New Music: Slaine (Boston hip-hop) featuring Street Dogs’ Mike McColgan – “Sam Song”

Interesting new music for your Friday. It’s a little outside the scope of Dying Scene’s traditional comfort zone, and for good reason. It’s a new track called “Sam Song,” and it comes to us by way of Boston-based hip-hop artist Slaine, whom our non-rap fans might recognize from his appearances in movies like The Town and Gone Baby Gone. Anyway, the track features an appearance from none other than Street Dogs Mike McColgan. Also, yours truly is pretty sure that McColgan’s fellow Street Dog Lenny Lashley, whom you may remember from this, laid down the guitar on the track, but perhaps don’t quote me on that. Anyway, check it out below.

“Sam Song” appears on Slaine’s recent “House of Slaine” mixtape, which finds him teaming up with DJ Frank White, DJ Lethal and Danny Boy from the legendary House of Pain. Listen to, or download, the whole thing right here.



UPDATE: Street Dogs’ Mike McColgan issues statement on last night’s neo-Nazi fracas

As you’re no doubt aware (because the story damn near broke the punk rock internet earlier this evening), there was an incident at last night’s Street Dogs show at Anaheim’s House Of Blues. Long story short, a few neo-Nazi showgoers decided to disrupt the evening’s events. As you’d imagine, they were met with fierce resistance from not only the crowd but the band itself, as guitarist Lenny Lashley jumped boot-first into the crowd to help clear out the aforementioned idiots, and took a chair to the eyebrow in the process.

While messages from the band have circulated on their individual social media pages over the course of the day, the band’s frontman, Mike McColgan, issued a statement through the Street Dogs’ Facebook page to discuss the incident. Here it is in its entirety:

At this time I would like to officially address what happened in Anaheim. Last night at our show in Anaheim at the House Of Blues while we were playing our song Final Transmission for a dear departed fan and friend of ours USMC Jordan Stanton when we noticed a group of Neo nazis rough housing and intimidating our fans and throwing up sieg heil salutes in the air. Their very presence, their hateful,bigoted and ignorant ideology is odious to us and completely unacceptable. We with fans, friends and the assistance of security removed them from the crowd and in the process of mitigating them out some of us sustained superficial injuries. We can attribute those injuries only being superficial in nature to the House Of Blues and their exceptional staff, our fans and our friends. After they were removed we continued with our show and finished the show without incident. In closing we submit this no neo nazis are allowed at our shows. We have always believed in equality and that all people are created equal. We will not suffer or tolerate bigotry in any manifestation. PERIOD!!!!

Respectfully Submitted,

Mike McColgan
Street Dogs

The story we posted earlier had a video from the crowd, though it was pretty dark and you can’t see much ’til the aftermath. A second video shot and uploaded by Michael Coughlin is available below, though it seems to be shot from just a hair too far away. We can confirm that Lenny was bloodied (and finished the set in Gwar-esque fashion), but has been stitched up and is otherwise no worse for the wear. It’s been said before, but it no doubt warrants repeating; good on ya, fellas!



Street Dogs fight neo-Nazis at St. Patrick’s Day show

According to OC Weekly, fighting broke out at Boston punk band Street Dogs‘ St. Patrick’s Day show at the House of Blues in Anaheim, California, when a group of neo-Nazis “tried to instigate fights and roughhouse people of color in the pit.” Frontman Mike McColgan took notice and told the audience that anyone who discriminates against people based on the color of their skin should “get the fuck out because it’s not 1939 anymore.”

The band continued with their set, but while they were playing “Final Transmission,” things took a turn for the worse. The neo-Nazis started to march in the pit, with one of the “men” even going as far as mocking the band with the Nazi salute.

As the video below shows (from around the 4:40 mark on), Street Dogs members then hopped off the stage and began fighting the neo-Nazis, and the rest of the pit was quick to join in. Guitarist Lenny Lashley was hit in the head with a chair that was thrown from an upstairs balcony, but he luckily wasn’t hurt too badly.

And in spite of everything that happened, after the racist assholes had been removed from the venue by security, the band got back up on stage and finished the show.

Street Dogs frontman Mike McColgan and guitarists Lenny Lashley and Matt Pruitt recently sat down with Adam-12 from RadioBDC (that’s Radio Boston-dot-com for those of you who ahnt frum aroun’ heah). The trio were promoting their upcoming appearance at a local fundraiser benefiting a local high school music program on behalf of a “DCT and Okie,” few area kids who passed away all too soon a decade ago. In addition to chatting for a while, they performed acoustic renditions of classic Street Dogs songs “Free” and “Yesterday,” as well as their cover of the Steve Earle track, “Johnny Come Lately.” Check out the video below.

DS Photo Gallery: Pirates Press 10th Anniversary ‘Rock The Ship’ with Cock Sparrer, Bouncing Souls, Street Dogs, Bum City Saints, and more

If you build it, they will come. Such was the overwhelming mantra as I approached 17th and Wisconsin on an (relatively) early Saturday morning for Pirates Press’ 10th Anniversary ‘Rock The Ship’ party. The day had finally arrived, and I was about to see Cock Sparrer, Bouncing Souls, Street Dogs (and Lenny Lashley’s Gang of One!), Bum City Saints, Suede Razors, Bishops Green, and more sharing the same stage in the city I love and live. Leaving the venue the night before, it was difficult yet anxious to imagine what the block would be transformed into in less than six hours. As I walked to the grounds still feeling a bit haggard from a little Argy Bargy from the night, I heard Cock Sparrer’s sound check to “Riot Squad” and I thought to myself that there could hardly be a better start to a day.

At this point I could go into an in-depth show review of each of the eight bands (minus Smalltown which I missed and will forever hate myself for it), or I could just briefly talk about the day overall, and let the photos tell the story. As I turned the corner onto 16th St where the main entrance was, I was greeted by at least 100 people waiting in line to begin their Saturday in the sun. You really couldn’t ask for better weather and walking in, the block definitely had the air of a proper festival. I grabbed my breakfast beer as I took in the relative calm, anticipating the amazing day ahead.

Lenny Lashley for opener was a brilliant call, as he had just the right amount of grit and energy to enliven the wakening crowd. It’s always great to see the Boston-native belting out heartfelt lyrics as he does best. Often times when I’m behind the camera, the rest of the world is shut out which makes some of my show reviews shite, so I shall let the photos do the talking.

You can check out all photos from the day’s event below (except Cock Sparrer as they will be getting their own gallery).
