Dogbowl (aka Steven Tunney) isn’t ever likely to end up being affluent, and he’ll probably under no circumstances end up being famous. His biggest state to popularity was a short stint being a founding person in a music group who afterwards become one-hit miracles (after he previously still left). And since his departure, non-e of his albums possess marketed over 20,000 copies. But those that enjoy his artwork achieve this religiously, producing him relatively of the cult hero for the few souls who understand of him. His music combines a straightforward, catchy, nearly pre-Beatles pop-writing design with esoteric, off-the-wall, virtually post-modern lyrics. He began his profession in the past due ’80s as the initial lead guitarist of Ruler Missile, who had been then referred to as Ruler Missile (Pup Fly Religious beliefs). He documented two albums with Ruler Missile and, after locating the group’s erratic, relatively sarcastic musical path unsatisfying, still left to go after his very own erratic, left-wing efforts. Dogbowl’s individual initiatives have been, more often than not, more constant musically than Ruler Missile’s. Although nothing at all he has created can state to end up being as rip-roaringly amusing as his previous band’s novelty strike “Detachable Male organ,” his lyrics are regularly smart. His most noteworthy minute as a single artist was included with the 1992 discharge of Flan, an outlandish idea album. Flan information the 21-monitor adventures of the protagonist, Flan, who, along with right-hand seafood Ginger Kang Kang, treads boldly searching for his prodigal like, Helen. It’s incredibly poppy and done well, but much too cerebral and particular in its laughter to attain most pop viewers. Dogbowl’s brand-new label 62TV needs release a a greatest-hits collection in early 2001.
