That Dog

  • That Dog

The girl-group-meets-punk-rock boom is certainly a thing that I appreciate. Best Coast, Vivian Girls, Dum Dum Girls, Wax Idols, Colleen Green—I can’t seem to get enough of that sound. I’m pretty sure it all stems from my obsession with That Dog when I was younger. The Los Angeles band, which existed from 1991 till ’97, collaborated with and ran in the same circles as some of the biggest names in alternative rock (Beck, Weezer, the Rentals), but never really broke into the mainstream like their peers. Until they announced a string of reunion dates last year, they’d apparently been all but forgotten—you can find only a couple of their songs on YouTube and pretty much nothing on download networks.
