About

Its 40 years ago since Manchester Punk Legends Slaughter and the Dogs formed and began to gig. History,  TV Documentaries and  numerous books have told the story of how important this band really were on many bands that were to follow, The Smiths, The Stone Roses, Oasis to name but a few. The line up of Barrett/Rossi/Bates/Grantham despite releasing the classic album Do It Dog Style and many singles starting with the Iconic Cranked Up Really High on Rabid Records (which was to become the for runner for Factory Records and everything that came from that stable) actually played their last gig as a foursome in 1979. 2015 brings you the promise from all four band members to reform and play a One Off 40th Anniversary Gig in their home town of Manchester in October of 2015. There are many costs involved in putting this event together with band members living in the USA and France, hotels and time in rehearsals, venue hire etc and so we need the budget set out on Kickstarter pledged from you the fans before the show can go on. Its so easy to pledge and you will receive a reward for your money in the form of a ticket for the gig, a Live DVD of the gig, a Ltd edition Gig T-shirt etc. You will not be charged a single penny if the figure needed is not reached by the set date. This is one off opportunity and please do not underestimate the chance we the Fans of Slaughter and the Dogs have to bring back and finally find out "WHERE HAVE ALL THE BOOT BOYS GONE"    

Risks and challenges

PLEASE NOTE: The figure needed to get this project successfully off the ground is to cover the extensive costs involved. A brief description of what the monies will pay for = Flight from Los Angeles, Fight from Lyon France, Hotel accommodation for band members, Venue Hire, Back line, Tickets, Wristbands, Advertising, After Show Party and Guest DJ, Film Production Company to film the Gig for DVD release, DVD Production inc printing and packaging, Limited Edition T-Shirts to commemorate the event, Rehearsal Room for one week, 10% of all money raised on Kickstarter is taken in Fees plus VAT. Postage and Packaging for all the rewards on Kickstarter and if there's anything left the band members might actually get a drink or two from proceeds! Unfortunately I do not have big money backers/Promoters waiting to pour money into this venture and as I said at the very beginning of this campaign this is being done by a Fan for the Fans!!!! No one will be charged any money for tickets/dvds etc until the minimum target figure has been reached.
