Here's some info about the Recyver Dogs
given by Mad Max, one of the guys behind
the Recyver Dogs.
We are playing live-sets since 4 years in many european clubs without recording records. The good thing is that we get bookings without records and if the crowd likes it (mostly) we get rebooked to the same club, which happens now a lot of times.
We also play on our self produced software, which is not available in any shops, only we use our own software. Thats a very special point in our live show.
Now we will release records, because we dream about playing also big festivals with 2-3 musicans with real instruments like drums, trumpet and singers later on.
Our first 12inch will be released in march 2004 on the dutch label FINGERS LTD.02, it is called RECYVER DOGS - JACK PART 1 (incl. Remixes by Dave Tarrida,Scan 7 and Hansz). In the moment we prepare a DVD with our live performance in the tresor bunker january!
