“You can have your money back if you hear a better guitar song than that all day” Chris Hawkins BBC Radio 6 Music

Manchester’s Critically-acclaimed,  3 piece Garage Rock Band Hey Bulldog have been playlisted by Amazing Radio, featured by Steve Lamacq ,Chris Hawkins BBC 6 Music, John Kennedy Radio X, BBC Introducing, KEXP,  and  Mojo Magazine’s Phil Alexander.

For fans of The Kills, Thee oh Sees, BRMC, Mogwai.

Their latest single ‘Al Lupo’ has been described as “a garage-psych whirlwind of a song, Al Lupo has everything – driving yet interesting rhythms, fabulous vocals and their trademark stupefyingly-good guitars” Louder Than War

The band have also earned rave live reviews,

 “Guitarist Rob Manton is blessed with enough musical talent to actually justify his level of showmanship as he howls his way through the band’s material- the centrepiece being “No Future, Part II“, a hazy Krautrock odyssey utilising motorik beats courtesy of drummer Ben Howarth-Lees and hypnotic synthetic drones, which gradually build in intensity to a great wave of release. 

New single “Al Lupo“, by contrast, is back to basics with it’s Sabbath-esque riffs, heavy with distortion and flanging, perfect for a blistering desert freeway- a temperature that the room was earnestly trying to match at this point.  

Hey Bulldog are an outfit to watch out for” Sounds From Nowhere
