The Dog Faced Hermans

This is a Peel session from 1987 and has a kind of post-punk sound. The Dog Faced Hermans were from Scotland and became based in Amsterdam for a while before they finished in 1995. The first of these tracks is like a traditional Mexican/ punk piece, which has to be pretty unique! Anyway, give them a listen, they rock(ed).

DFHs - El Dogo Speaks
Malcolm Plays Housy Housy
Sure Up the Enemy

These songs were from their Peel session so not an album. Try doing a search. The info on Wikipedia doesn't give tracklists for their albums.

Andy here from DFH ....

the peel session was

El Doggo Speaks ( also on the 1st LP Humans Fly)
Malcolm plays Housie Housie ( alternative title to original which was Malcolm Rifkinds Privy ..but we couldnt use this as it was broadcast during the election

Shore Up the Enemy ( also alternative title to Shat on By Angels..which we could use because the BBC doesnt like swear words)

Balloon Girl ( also appears on 1st LP Humans Fly and in another version on a 7inch single with the song "Now Eat This "
