Xylitol - Get Your Woofin' Dog Off Me
It's not long since uncompromising Olympia 4 piece Xylitol graced this blog (http://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.co.uk/2017/07/xylitol-i-dont-wanna-be-punished.html) so I don't need a big intro today. I'd just like to point you in the direction of a fabulous (barking mad???) cover they've recently released of a song that also appeared on this blog many moons ago (http://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/jerks-get-your-woofing-dog-off-me.html).
The original was by 5 Yorkshire teenagers called The Jerks and was from 1977, this updated version came out last month and is taken from a split tour tape that Xylitol released with Icelandic band Dauðyflin : https://xylitolband.bandcamp.com/album/xylitol-dau-yflin-tour-tape
I played the song on the latest Just Some Punk Songs show and it went down a storm with several of the chatroom folk whilst a few others were left scratching their heads! If you want to listen to the show it's saved here : https://www.mixcloud.com/mick-fletcher/just-some-punk-songs-010817/
This Is Get Your Woofin' Dog Off Me.....
