The Ho’ Dogs


Extremely wild Dunedin old-school rock’n’roll from a handful of underground experimental or lo-fi musicians. I managed to catch them once at the Provincial Lounge in Christchurch and was blown away by their stage antics; which included jumping on the Prov’s bar, kicking over drinks. Their live clips recorded at the Crown in Dunedin really show they were a spectacle:

The Ho’ Dogs – Yr Call (live at the Crown Hotel, Dunedin 1999)

They featured on Rockstar Records excellent ‘No Thanks to New Zealand on Air‘ and Fast Food Records ‘Rock’n’roll music is my only Salvation‘ compilations – both highlighting the rock’n’roll revivalism of New Zealand groups in the late 1990s through to early 2000s.

Guitarist Kaaterama Morehu passed away in November 2020.
