Hair Of The Dog
Hair of the dog


Hair of the Dog are a three piece stoner rock trio from Edinburgh, Scotland. They draw heavily on their mutual love of the late 60s and 70s rock scenes; whilst incorporating modern aspects of stoner rock. The trio have played together for over a decade in various forms and bands, finally settling in Edinburgh where Hair of the Dog was born. The band consists of brothers, Jonathan (Drums) and Adam Holt (Vocals & Guitar), and lifelong friend Iain Thomson (Bass Guitar). Together they have been jamming music since their school days, coming together to play the music they adored, by bands such as Zeppelin, Hendrix, Deep Purple and Sabbath; as well as more contemporary jam-style bands such as early Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Rage Against the Machine.

Fast forward over a decade of friendship, the dealings of life’s ups and downs and a bond shared only by those who truly share a musical bond; and Hair of the Dog was forged; matured like a well-aged whisky. In early 2014 the trio entered Chamber Studios, Edinburgh and laid down their debut album. In one weekend the seven track, self-titled debut record was recorded. The record has managed to capture the energy and atmosphere of the bands live performances and displays their wide variety of style and dynamic.

Those who prefer their classic rock infused with rich, dark blues are going to love this even more … will take you back to the time of Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin, with homages to classic records like Houses of the Holy (1973) and Machine Head (1972).

Psychedelic blues/classic/hard rock that brings back memories of Thin Lizzy, Deep Purple, Led Zepp and the Black Sabbath. If you dig the classic guitar sound of the 70s then you’re going to be in luck, because Hair Of The Dog has you covered on all levels.
