Charlie Ashcroft, Amazing Radio

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

‘Some of The Best Garage Rock on the planet’
The Revue

"Hey Bulldog, another trio, hit the stage and immediately fire into an incendiary set. The Manchester three-piece are closer in spirit to stoner rock trendsetters Kyuss and Sleep, thick, heavy rock riffs underlaid with grooving, driving rhythm.

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, their stock is only going to rise in 2018"
Gig Review by Liam Moody, Sounds From Nowhere

The Bands’ last four singles all mixed by EMI producers Boe Weaver (Archie Bronson Outfit, Pete Molinari, Whyte Horses, Wolf People), have all been featured by BBC 6 Music and exclusively revealed on Radio X as John Kennedy’s Xposure Hot One’s.

‘Stranger’ made it’s way onto Seattle’s KEXP too

‘Skyscrapers of guitar, the relentless scurry of the bass all captured. Each controlled detonation; each crack of the whip is here. ‘Divide And Conquer' is a perfect exhibition for Hey Bulldog's vision.’ https://soundcloud.com/heybulldog/divide-and-conquer

Before that came the critically acclaimed Amazing Radio playlisted single 'Under My Spell' https://soundcloud.com/heybulldog/undermyspell which was a synapse-burning ride through rock ‘n’ roll’s past, present and future.

They've been played by Steve Lamacq , Chris Hawkins BBC 6 Music, Radio X, Planet Rocks/Mojo Magazine’s Phil Alexander, BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio.

They've been reviewed by Little Indie Blogs, Vapour Trail, Killing Moon and Backseat Mafia.
