Dogkuff The Jigsaw Friday, March 9, and Saturday afternoon, March 10, at Peabody's
Every track on Dogkuff's debut is bigger, nastier, and uglier than the last one -- and gloriously so. Song titles like "Dead Baby Blues" only begin to hint at how gutter-gritty the disc is.

Guitarist Farrell grinds out one stoner riff after another, while the metal-plated biker rock occasionally slows down into melodic classic rock and then speeds up to thrash velocity. Crough lays down ambient bass lines that take the edge off the bleak -- and hopefully fictitious -- exploits of the bloody, broke, and belligerent losers, addicts, and peeping Toms that inhabit Dogkuff's songs. Mixed by studio ace Brandon Youngs (Johnny Mohawk, Mob Scene), this EP is a good start, but the band needs to record a full album right now -- if only to keep 'em off the streets.
