Bobb Trimble’s third album, The Crippled Dog Band, is now available for the first time as CD/LP/digital download/cassette from Yoga Records. Recorded in 1983 with a Worcester, MA group of teenage boys and named after a local three-legged dog, the album has been lost for nearly three decades since Bobb dumped the 500-count LP pressing into an office park dumpster.
All of this would be nothing more than a typically weird footnote to the Bobb Trimble legend, except for the fact that The Crippled Dog Band is very different from, but every bit as remarkable and brilliant as Iron Curtain Innocence and Harvest Of Dreams. Having proved himself, if only to himself, this is where Bobb stops chasing glass menagerie fantasies of perfection, tempers the dread of his first two records, and reconnects with his DIY roots. This unique collaboration between “the greatest psychedelic musician of the 80s” and his scrappy acolytes yields pure rock and roll and the result is raw, crazy, and infectiously exciting.
