The Dogmatics “Drop That Needle” now on streaming services

The full five song EP “Drop That Needle” by the Dogmatics is now available on all popular streaming services.

Rum Bar Records is also selling a CD and sticker bundles alongside a limited edition Flexi disc for the track “Automat Kalashnikov” paired with the classic tune “You Say”.

Check out this thoughtful review of the EP from Lord Rutledge on their blog “Faster and Louder”:

Not content to be remembered for their old classics, The Dogmatics are well on their way to authoring a whole slew of new ones. This band honors the past but is not stuck in it. And as the garage/punk/rock and roll scene continues to flourish at the grass roots level, it’s a joy to see more and more people becoming hip to an eternal truth: The Dogmatics rule!

Art Direction for The Dogmatics Single Automat Kalashnikov

Art Direction for The Dogmatics Single Automat Kalashnikov

I collaborated with the band The Dogmatics on the creative direction and design for a single release titled Automat Kalashnikov. The creative direction focused on repurposing classic B&W concert poster art created by Barry Hall for the band in the ’80s.

It’s a brand new single from the band’s upcoming 2022 full-length release that will be released on Rum Bar Records.
