'SHE CRIES BLUES' (SINGLE)
MEXICAN DOGS return with latest single: “She Cries Blues”, a retro romp out now via Fretsore Records.
Cavorting their way through a thunderous blend of retro riffs, jovial drum beats and rip-roaring, live-ready vocals, “She Cries Blues” is a fuzzy glam-rock romp that touches on the past whilst barrelling hell for leather toward the future.

Speaking about the band’s big intentions for “You & I”, frontman Gaz Wilcox says:
“We had the idea of this song with a vision of it connecting with a big audience at shows, bringing people together. While a lot of our tracks have a faster/heavier approach, this one holds back on the pace that we think creates a groove that should transcend through all ages and music lovers.”

With an earth-splitting live sound and uncompromising attitude resonant in early tracks like ‘Run Run Run’, Fretsore were suitably impressed to sign the young trio of the trio of Gaz Wilcox (ex-Bribes), Carl Rooney and Sonny Winder-Rodgers over the summer of 2021. A band who tap into the seminal sounds of T-Rex or Led Zep and re-route them via the high octane thrills of modern day titans like The Black Keys or Royal Blood, Mexican Dogs balance rock classic and contemporary on an exhilarating knife-edge.
Fronted by ex-Bribes man Gaz Wilcox, the Dogs’ vocalist and axeman has been playing guitar of a fine pedigree since the age of 9. Cutting his teeth at live shows only a year later (including a Beatles charity show at the Empire Theatre), the singer has honed his talent at all of the finest live haunts in his native Liverpool and beyond, performing in a string of bands including Eutopia, The Verdict (who won the UK Battle of the Bands, played a gig in The Houses of Parliament and also played in New York with The Enemy and Reverend and the Makers), and later Bribes.
Earning a formidable live rep with major gigs at the Liverpool O2 in support of Electric Six and at Sound City, the band earned multiple plays on BBC Introducing before going their separate ways due to creative differences. Rekindling his passion for music following a year away, Wilcox formed Mexican Dogs upon meeting drummer Carl Rooney (who has toured with greats like Echo & The Bunnymen, Iggy Pop, The Hives, and also performed at Glastonbury) and young bassist Sonny Winder-Rodgers (who’s dad is the guitar tech for one Noel Gallagher).
