Four-Legged Friends: 900 Dogs

The Carnivaleros: 900 Dogs


Chances are, most of you haven’t heard 900 Dogs. The song comes from The Carnivaleros’ album Happy Homestead, which I reviewed on my blog, Oliver di Place, back in September. You can read my full review here.

Gary Mackender is the songwriter of the group. Here he takes the idea behind the expression “dog eat dog”, and turns it into an extended metaphor. The song has a desert rock vibe, topped by a wailing sax, that only helps to make the point.
