Artist Spotlight 2015 - Dogs & Vultures Distro

Raw noisy distorted madness. That's the most apt description I could find for our next spotlight - Dogs & Vultures Distro.
Dogs & Vultures is a Dublin based DIY punk distro and label. They've been in operation for a little over a year, and already their back catalogue is looking impressive.

Earlier this year they released the self-titled album by Burnchurch that has been labelled as an album of the year contender. Burnchurch are a hardcore punk band featuring members of Easpa Masa, Rats Blood and Silence. Heartfelt, raucous and heavy is how I would describe Burnchurch, definitely worth a listen.

The band Gaze are another gem in the Dogs & Vultures catalogue. This quartet play d-beat infused hardcore, and feature members of Twisted Mass and Fag Enablerz. They're great!

No only will Dogs & Vultures bring stock from all the deadly acts they have released over the past year., they are also bring lots of 2nd hand LPs, 7 inches, cds. So their whole stock will be there on the day, along with a cheap box of 12"/7"/CDs/zines/patches/whatever they can find lying around. You can't really ask for much more than that, sounds savage!

Dogs & Vultures have recently celebrated their first birthday. Congratulations to all, we need more distros like this in Ireland.
