"That the band is a full-time band. That whatever Street Dogs is doing, whether recording or playing live, we're gonna give 110%. Always. But the thing I'd like to convey most through bio or anything is that this music has an honesty and earnestness to it. The lyrics are from legitimate life experiences The lyrics are from legitimate life experiences from the band members."

The End.

You know, Mike McColgan could leave it at that. Few bands can sum themselves up so succinctly and accurately and truthfully in a paragraph. They have to resort to hyperbole and clichés and any other public relations gimmick to make themselves interesting. With Street Dogs, you get truth -- real feelings, uncontrived sentiments -- and music that is as gritty and unwashed as their name.

Street Dogs is McColgan's first project post-The Dropkick Murphys, which he co-founded, singing on the EP Boys on the Docks and LP Do or Die, two of punk rock's modern classics. He left the band in 1998 to fulfill his lifelong dream as a member of the Boston Fire Department. "I have no misgivings, no regrets…and there are no bad feelings," he says proudly. "I still talk to those guys.

Street Dogs formed in 2002 when they recorded the acclaimed Savin Hill album on Crosscheck Records. The band has been touring constantly since and building a following on rapid word of mouth. They've recently finished a successful jaunt with Flogging Molly in the US and the UK.
