Band Rock Punk





THE RAUCOUS SOUND of classic punk is being kept alive in the Ottawa music scene by Machine Gun Dolly. With old school sounds mixed with scream-tinged metal, they keep the energy high on their latest offering Nuclear Generation. Reformed from the break-up of their prior band Black Sheep, Johnny Duflicker, Jesse Strokes, Christian Keye, and Mac Simpson take many influences from the history of punk to make their own unique brand. Duflicker’s throaty vocals highlight all tracks and the backing instrumentation varies with each song to keep things fresh. From Nuclear Generation, “She Don’t Care” and “Junkie” hearken back to the earlier days of punk, while “Our Generation”, “One Shot, One Kill”, and “Slaves of Society” have a more intense, metal feel. The repeating chorus of “Junkie” especially stands out, as do the driving riffs of “She Don’t Care”. Machine Gun Dolly is one of many Ottawa bands whose adrenaline-filled shows keep the spirit of punk alive in Canada. The band will be playing at Café Dekcuf on Mar. 12. - The Fulcrum

Machine Gun Dolly is a 4 piece Punk Rock'n'Roll band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Started in January 2006 after the break-up of their previous band BlackSheep, Machine Gun Dolly is fronted by guitarist and singer Johnny Duflicker with his sidekick Jesse Strokes on the Bass Guitar and Mac Simpson on Drums. Inspired by 90's punk rock, and old-school rock'n'roll, the band are doing what they can to keep punk rock alive and kickin' ass for years to come.

The band independently released 500 copies of their self-titled EP in 2007, mastered by Rene Garcia (The Brains) which is now out of print. In 2009, the band recorded and released their first full-length album, Nuclear Generation on Title Track Recordz. In 2010, looking to complete the MGD lineup, the band brought on board longtime fan and friend Chris Hawkeye to the rhythm guitar position after the breakup of his band The Zero Hours. MGD then played regular shows and small tours for the next 2 years, and are finally returning to the studio to record their follow-up album titled "Until The Grim Reaper..." to be released in the summer of 2012.
