“Everything on the surface of A Giant Dog’s record “Pile” screams beware. From the violent lyrics to the grotesque cover art to the very name of the band, the message is clear.” – Pitchfork
A Giant Dog is raucous ear candy culled from the hook-driven melodies of Slade, the glammy swagger of Marc Bolan, the morbid fantasy of Killer-era Alice Cooper, and the unpredictable wit of Sparks. The lyrics -being equal parts brutally honest, clever, and debased- have a knack for taking their idiosyncratic depravities and making them feel universal.
These songs are by, for, and about the losers, freaks, and outcasts. The lonely. The terminally horny. Boozehounds and party animals. No band better speaks to the hearts of slackers, burnouts, rockers, sluts, and creeps everywhere than A Giant Dog.
