Biography

The Lives of the Monster Dogs is a rock band with a southern drawl.

The Lives of the Monster Dogs took their name from a book, a modern-day Frankenstein tale written by author, Kirsten Bakis. Much like the stitching together of many different parts to make "the monster", this band's creation is rock music. Drawing from the deep well of blues and country music tradition of the south, The Lives of the Monster Dogs bring something raw and essential to life

The Lives of the Monster Dogs have worked with producer Don McCollister, owner and operator of Nickel and Dime Studios, who has been awarded multiple gold records for his talent, and with Dede Vogt, a musician/producer who has been a fixture in the music scene for more than 20 years and has done a bit of everything, from performing as a musician in the musical "Jesus Christ Superstar" to recording and producing the Indigo Girls. In 2010, The Lives of the Monster Dogs competed in a nation-wide contest sponsored by OurStage and placed in the top five, out of thousands of other bands and solo performers. The Lives of the Monster Dogs are part of regular rotation on internet radio stations, "Women of Substance Radio", "Acoustic Roundtable" on WITRR, and WomensRadio.com.

Lyrics

Full Moon

Written By: melinda kingsley

i'll hang around a while i guess
it's best to keep me at a distance
the signs on all the fences say "beware of dog", "no trespassing", "keep out"
i keep your picture in my head
no one can take it from me
or question any thoughts i had and examine any memories
when i'm dead

i'm changing
i'm changing now
i am howling
you don't come around here no more
you don't come around here

i've always been myself and something else
it's dangerous
something different in the eyes
the things that i am hiding
pacing, pawing at the doors,
listening, waiting, watching
you can't be sure of it at all
don't feed the animal

i'm changing
i'm changing now
i am howling
you don't come around here no more
you don't come around here

i can't see in front of me
don't remember anything

i'm changing
i'm changing now
i am howling
you don't come around here no more
you don't come around here...
