Album Notes
every once in a while a band comes along blows our mind and makes us wonder how we got along without them all this time... this is the first effort from a band who had no intention of becoming a band.. originally they came together so the students at Portland's recording Associates studio class could have a real live band to practice on.. after the first session Matt saw Mike Varney on MTV talking to JJ Jackson about his search for unsung guitar heroes... a couple of demos were sent and The tonight show written by Danny Kurth was chosen for the compilation lp meanwhile back home radio station KGON was doing their own compilation of homegrown bands and wild dogs won 2 of the call in competitions and Born to Rock was chosen for that.... ( drumming on that track and 3 other songs is Jaime St James, front man for Black n Blue i found Deen at the 11th hour when we were about to pack it in as both Pete Holmes and Jaime had moved the band to Hollywood
the songwriting was the best part for us , it was a workshop without any of the interference that came AFTER we started playing live shows.this is a group in it's natural state without any idea of what to be we just WERE. included are 7 bonus tracks our earliest recordings beginning with fugitive of the law.. which features kip doran on 2nd lead guitar... originally this was a 2 guitar lineup but... jeff is so good another my playing was getting in the way... and since we loved Van Halen and Ozzy i saw us as a trio and front man - the singer who was scheduled to be with us flake leaving me in the spot... this has been remastered by bryce van patten so you can hear the bass better..

Rock On
This is great 80's Heavy Metal. I used to have this release on vinyl and now I have it on CD but with bonus tracks! Well worth it. Great musicians and songs. Listen to the music, but please don't watch any of their videos unless you like your singers overweight and wearing assless leather chaps - aaaargh.

Wild Dogs
Excellent song writing. Short, catcy tunes, great metal sound!! Highly recommended.


Stunning peice of metal mayhem from Wild Dogs

I love this album reminds me of high school
My boyfriend found this band when we were in high school and ive been lookin for the cd for years finally! Born to Rock is our anthem. and matt mccourt is not overweight he is FATT MATT the one we all know and love and the only man who doesnt look like the rest of the femmy singers or sound like one either.
this is real rock for those who like it hot fast and hard just like the liner notes say- i will buy the dvds that i didnt know existedthanx for the tip. and matt emailed me back personally thanx cd baby! this is the coolest EK
