If David Lynch makes a film with Tom Waits, Snoop Dogg and a 56 Mercury Montclair, the Raindoggs would be the soundtrack.

Biography

Brent Cagle, Raindogg & Rob Huntley became friends in 2011 while playing in a Tom Waits tribute band. Although the tribute band didn’t work out, the three would later go on to form The Raindoggs.

The Raindoggs met singer/songwriter Ali Holder through Michael Prohaska (Trumpet) who played with Ali in ‘Ali Holder and Train Robbin Whiskey’. The Raindoggs released their first album Red to Black in August 2011 and played their first show at J.Lorraine Ghost Town, Manor TX. on Halloween weekend..

The Raindoggs shot a video for “Stuck in RED” while Ali was on tour with “Ali Holder & The Broken Hearted”. Stuck in RED was recently featured in the Dodge Dart song writing competition.

With Ali Holder returning to The Broken Hearted, the Dogg’s found themselves searching for a new pack leader. Larisa Montanaro joined The Raindoggs in November of 2011, and released their first single (remake of Snoop Dogg’s My Medicine) two months later. The Raindoggs were named “Spotify Song of the Day” by soundofus.com after indie music blog xmusic.fm posted the remake.

The Raindoggs version of “My Medicine” appeared on the 2012 compilation album Zap! Azul by BandSoup.com. In July of 2012, their second album One Armed Bandits was released under “We Don’t Suck Productions”. Larisa & the Raindoggs parted ways in July of 2012.

Kassy Key joined The Raindoggs in July of 2012, and released their first video “Sleight of Hand” the following September. Kassy Key & the Raindoggs have relocated to Brooklyn, NY to work on their next album, due late 2013.

Lyrics

Don't Wanna Be Good

Written By: Rob Porta

I don’t want no good girl prize
?I don’t want to tell no lies?
I don’t want a life that pure?
I don’t want and I’m sure
I don’t want a life of ease
?I don’t want to ask you please?
I don’t want a milk safe life
?I don’t want to be your wife?
?
I don’t want to be your whore?
I don’t want no locks on doors

I don’t want to be good no more.
?I don’t want to be good no more.

I don’t want to play your games?
I don’t want to call you names
?I don’t want a life that’s full
?I don’t want a life that dull
?
What I want is what I get
?What I want I’m wanting yet?
What I want just give to me
?What I want is to be set free?
?
I don’t want your stupid laws
?I don’t want to be good no more.
What I want and I want more
?I don’t want to be good no more.

Sleight of Hand

Written By: Domanique Marquez, Kassy Key & Raindogg

They say that lovers always believe one another's
sleight of hand tricks and it's true
He thought I'd be another one of his notches...
But best believe I ain't a fool
You see a woman's got her games and she can play them well too
You may pull the wool but I told you I ain't no fool no

Put your cards on the table if you think that you got game
You make think that you're a high roller
But it's time that you felt the pain
Stop me if you think you can yeah
Wait till you see my sleight of hand

You try to be so slick
You're winkin and talkin shit
Those eyes can hypnotize
Make women believe your lies
You try to be so slick
Winkin and talkin shit
Those eyes will hypnotize
But I won't believe your lies

You see a woman's got her games
And she can play them just as well too
You may pull the wool but I ain't no fool

Put your cards on the table if you think that you got game
You make think that you're a high roller
But it's time that you felt the pain
Stop me if you think you can yeah
Wait till you see my sleight of hand
