Kerbdog's second album On The Turn celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. Released in 1997, the album's popularity and influence has continued grow over the years, it's been namechecked by many acts such as Biffy Clyro, Razorlight, Fangclub, and others.
Recorded in the Summer of 1995 with producer Garth Richardson who’s produced Rage Against The Machine, Biffy Clyro, L7, etc), the album saw the band decamp to the legendary Sound City Studios in LA, the same studio that albums like Nevermind by Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine’s self-titled debut, and Neil Young's After the Gold Rush were recorded.
2fm's Dan Hegarty has put together a 60-minute documentary about the album recently as part of his The Story of series - listen above.
