ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bulldog Shadow is the battered, overstuffed chair in a friend’s basement we sink into, with no thoughts of trying to get up anytime soon. Threadbare in places, angular and unyielding in others, 24-Hour-Drunk, his first EP, sits listeners down for a series of stories we wish we were the ones telling. Bulldog Shadow who was the a co-founder of Sloppy 2nds, the band that would go on to become Sublime, bends folk and blues into a new punk framework and spits out rage stored somewhere below the spleen with an audible smirk that suggests he knew he would get around to putting this all to music at some point. It might be the same smirk he wore walking into a gathering of those opposed to America's diversity, looking to talk politics, bee pollen, gardening and changed hearts. With a storied career in organizing alongside people simply trying live, love and work free from fear, Bulldog Shadow’s forgoes the overtly political for the envelopingly intimate, proving the adage that the most personal stories are at once the most universal. Punctuated with years of collecting musical influence of all manner from his birthplace in Los Angeles to growing up on the streets of Long Beach, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, and the South of France, Bulldog Shadow returns to his musical legacy which includes the quagmire of Southern California pop-ska, the existence for which he has previously borne some responsibility, into unapologetic dirty folk of his childhood. His first EP is punctuated with years of collecting musical influence of all manner from his birthplace in Los Angeles to growing up on the streets of Long Beach, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, and the South of France, The ‘Ay Güey Bandits’ -- Mario, George, Porter, and Jorge -- crossed paths with Ward in a Portland alleyway late at night, and a fair amount of whiskey, cigar smoke, and profanity landed them on Bulldog Shadow’s first EP. 24-Hour Drunk brings to the light of day six tracks only previously found in live performances for crowds ranging from five to one hundred and fifty, in several saloons, a grocery, and a candy shop, sharing the stage with artists of absolutely no consequence to anyone. Aside from doubling his whiskey collection and eventually releasing a follow-up EP.
