Active Dog: Rat Race (1979)



Early Vancouver punk bands, Active Dog had quite the pedigree, Bill Shirt (later of Los Popularos), Buck Cherry (later of The Modernettes and Lost Durangos - see HERE) as well as Gord Nicholls and Robert Bruce (later of the Pointed Sticks) and Ross Carpenter (later of...well, see here).




Both sides of the single are pretty rockin', with "Rat Race" being a little closer to lo-budget New Wave and "Good, Filthy Fun" being the more straight-up guitar-punk tune.
