Doggy Style


Doggy Style's Live at Sun City is a one-sided 12" put out by Flipside in 1986. It appears to be a picture disc but it's actually a silkscreen on the b-side of transparent green vinyl. One of the many dancers is holding a Flipside deck. Doggy Style put out a skate punk album in 1985 which was quickly followed up by this live 12". By this time they were already traveling down a dangerous path of mixing punk, rap and Red Hot Chili Peppers inspired party funk (as evidenced by the Beastie Boys "She's on It" cover on this 12"). The band split into 2 factions following this release, both of whom refused to give up such a terrible name. Both sides released albums in 1986, both of which are not good. One side followed it up with an even worse album that had Duane Peters on the cover. Thanks to Matt of Smash! for setting me straight on the post-split history.
