Black Dog Productions

Black Dog Productions

The Black Dog was founded by Ken Downie along with Ed Handley and Andy Turner. In 1989, they were unable to find a label to back their releases and had to start their own, Black Dog Productions. Their first full-length album, Bytes, was released on 15 March 1993. Their music was often produced under a number of different names, such as Close Up Over, Xeper, Atypic, I.A.O., Balil and the Discordian Popes.

In 1995, Ed and Andy left to focus on Plaid [] , but Ken continued working as The Black Dog on his own for a while, releasing the solo album "Music for Adverts". With new management, and an increased vigour, Downie then teamed up with Steve 'Hotdog' Ash and Ross Knight. Though they completed over a dozen critically acclaimed remixes during this period, only one album was ever released "Unsavoury Products", which featured the talents of parisian beat poet 'Black Sifichi' on vocals. In 2001, Downie teamed up with Richard and Martin Dust, owners of the label "Dust Science Recordings". Since then, they have released eight EPs and two full-length albums, "Silenced", on Dust Science [] , and have started to play live again. They released a single called "Riphead" on Soma, which will also be re-issuing the "Parallel" and the three Black Dog Productions EPs as 'Book of Dogma', to be released on March 26, 2007. The band are currently in the studio recording a new album for Soma Records entitled Radio Scarecrow. []
