Barbaric Yawp: Debut Album

image copyright Fred First

Tsuga has suggested that he would like for this image to become part of the cover graphics for his first solo album, Barbaric Yawp. By the way, he has already been practicing for his debut appearance in song, and so far, I'd have to say he has a bit of a Bob Wills Texas Swing flavor, with all the yodels and yipps and his characteristic signature wild warbling yawp. On the other hand, there is an edginess in much of Tsuga's early work, a heavy-metal angst he prefers to call "Rawhide", bringing a certain dental penetration to his hard hitting riffs. This, by the way, will be the only album cover of "The T" as he prefers to be called, without decorative hardware in his nose and at least one ear. Tatoos, however, are made almost impossible by his premature hirsuitism, but Raspberry Punk Hair Dye will certainly set him apart from the common type of country dog. Just wait until the LitterMate Reunion in about a month. They won't know what hit'em.

I'll let you know when the studio cuts become available and may allow Fragments readers to preview them in MP3 format. Stay tuned.

I am just in awe of your picture-taking ability - that is truly one beautiful picture!

What? He doesn't prefer MISTER T?

Wonder how he figured out the unfortunate connotation.

my current dog won't sing... my old dog would sing if you just looked at it sideways...

Tsuga is beautiful. Those eyes would melt even the most determined puppy trainer's heart.

The Su was out of town today and Harley spent the day at home instead of riding shotgun. I'm knackered and the living room is thrashed.

Whaddya gonna do? They're only pups for a short time.
