DIAMOND DOGS: As Your Green Turns Brown LP (red vinyl)
Diamond Dogs, Swedish rock group, formed in 1991 in Katrineholm, Södermanland. From the very beginning hugely influenced by British Early 1970s R&B rock like Rod Stewart and The Faces, Frankie Miller, Dr Feelgood etc. After making highly acclaimed demo tapes with producer Max Martin the band took its time carefully considering various offers of contracts, and ultimately a record deal was signed with Avance Records. All members moved to Stockholm upon finding fame in 1992 and debut album Honked was recorded in Sunlight Studio with inimitable producer Tomas Skogsberg.
Through constant touring, Diamond Dogs soon built a large reputation for their energetic live shows, with the charismatic and dynamic stage antics singer Sulo, as well as its innovative use of the piano as a lead rock instrument, The Duke of Honk is a pioneer in sound and style for gritty rock’n’roll keyboards. Sören ‘Sulo’ Karlsson is also the main songwriter, and Henrik ‘The Duke of Honk’ Widen serves as the group’s principal producer.
