Bird Dog ‎(Cass, Album, RE). Homestead Records. From the gorgeous cover art to Downe's literate lyrics, this album is teeming with the rough yet lovingly crafted brilliance that characterized the Dunedin sound. Careful, though, the final chorus of the "Bird Dog" track (concerning imported German beer) is so infectious that it will invade your thoughts whenever you reach for a tankard.
