Listened to this 3 times today and it was like a relentless barage of awesomeness. 

2024 has finally begun 😉

One spin through, and it sounds pretty good. Why have I not heard of these guys?

I went looking for the album and they have already released about 4 others... never heard of them before either.

Well, it's even more annoying for me, considering they're from the next province over. Canadian radio is a sack of dicks. These guys would never get played, or even promoted on radio.

They released this excellent song in 2022 and it didn't make the new album for some unknown reason.

Edit: 'Strange Love' is a bonus track on the CD version of the new album.

I just heard the breakdown/solo section in ‘Blood Magic’ and my balls splattered all over the car. Like Glen said, album is just huge and it’s as if they’re saying “I dare you not to dig this.” Only a few songs in, but sounds massive in every way.

This is the place to get it, especially if you live in North America...

I take it back. Just ordered the CD and shipping was only $9 to Australia. That is very decent. Hope it arrives soon so I can rock out!

So I guess they started moving in a more melodic direction with 2018's Play to Win? Prior to that, everything I'd heard from them was speed/straight metal (and not really that good IMO), so I stopped paying attention to them. 🤷 New stuff is pretty good.

Nope. No confirmation. Just an email confirming the order.

Mine arrived today in the post. Not bad for postage time to Australia! How cool is the bonus silver embossed cover art card? I put it in the front of the CD and it looks absolutely sweet. Gonna play this LOUD now.

Picked up “Ultrapower”, “Play to Win”, and the self titled discs directly from the band’s website, and have been listening to them on and off over the last week or so. LOVE “Ultrapower”, and “Play to Win”, but haven’t really warmed up to the self titled. Got “Stand in the Fire” on its way too. Overall, really enjoying their recent output. :headbanger:

    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
