Urban Dogs

Formed: London, England, UK

On their days off in the early '80s, Charlie Harper and Knox paid tribute to each other in the super group, They were aided and abetted by Alvin Gibbs (also UK Subs, ex-Cyanide) and drummer Turkey. Urban Dogs is a great LP, but No Pedigree, sadly, is a disaster, full of plodding songs and dreary performances.



Subsequent studio albums: Wipeout Beach (1998), Bonefield (2012), Attack (2016).
