Iconic British alternative/electro outfit Sheep on Drugs arrive at Bogiez this September. Known for their Grand Guignol style stage shows and a musical mixture of sleazy rock and hard electronic/industrial sound, SoD play Cardiff for the first time in a very long time.
Formed in response to the so-called “Second Summer Of Love” by Duncan X and Lee Fraser, the splendidly named Sheep On Drugs set out to simultaneously mock and revel in the excesses of pop culture. Blending a mixture of sleazy rock, hard techno and punk nihilism into their own peculiar cabaret act of a rock’n’roll band, they set out on tour with buckets of blood, syringes and a pulpit from which Duncan could rant at Punter (as they termed the audience), who lapped it up with a knowing postmodern acceptance of their own commodification.
SOD (as they are appropriately referred to) released their first single, “Catch 22/Drug Music”, in 1991. Two sides of sardonic observation of the world of work and the rave scene respectively established them as favourites on the electronic body music/industrial scene.
