Biografie

Slaughter & The Dogs is an English punk rock band that formed in the late 1970s in Manchester, England. They were one of the first UK punk bands to sign for a major label, Decca Records.
Career

Formed in Wythenshawe, Manchester, Slaughter & The Dogs were one of the first punk rock bands in North West England. They supported The Sex Pistols at their now-legendary gig at Manchester Lesser Free Trade Hall on 20 July 1976. This concert, more than any other single event, spawned Manchester’s punk scene. That scene was concentrated around the Electric Circus club and gave encouragement to several bands, including Alberto y Lost Trios Paranoias, Buzzcocks, John Cooper Clarke, The Distractions, John Dowie, The Drones, The Durutti Column, The Fall, The Freshies, Joy Division, Magazine, Ed Banger and The Nosebleeds, The Passage, as well as Slaughter & The Dogs. As one cultural commentator observed, „London had The Roxy, Manchester had the Electric Circus“. The band befriended Rob Gretton, later to manage Joy Division, and with his financial help became the first band to release a single on Manchester’s independent record label Rabid Records. In 2001, this debut single, „Cranked Up Really High“ (originally released in June 1977), was included in Mojo magazine’s list of the top 100 punk rock singles of all time.
