Doggy Style began in late 1983 and featured Brad X on vocals, Ed Caudill aka Shaggy on guitar, Ray Jimenez aka La Pulga on bass and Lou Guyez aka Lou Dog on drums. During this period, Doggy Style released three punk classics: "Work as One," "Side by Side," and "Live at Sun City."
In 1987, Brad and Lou abruptly departed to start a new Rap band with Brian Baker (Minor Threat) and Doug Carion (Descendants) called, "Doggy Rock" (Later changed to Doggy Style). Doggy Rock released, "The Last Laugh," and disbanded soon afterwards.
The other two members of Doggy Style, Ed and Ray, rebuilt Doggy Style as a Collective, introducing talented local musicians. Their first release was "Doggy Style II" 1987 FlipSide Records. After DS II, Ed took a break from music and stepped down as Producer and Lead Guitarist for DS. The Collective next released "Dont Hit Me Up,"1988 FlipSide Records. By 1989, DS had reformed with Ed as Producer and Lead Guitarist, Tim Fyke (Vocals), Eric Vedder aka Spider Pig (Bass), Danny Staggs (Rhythm Guitar) and Rob Chocek (Drums). During the recording of the new record the studio where Doggy Style recorded had been broken into and everything was stolen, including the Master Reels. The band decided to take some time off to recover from the tragedy. Unfortunately, the project never resumed. Interestingly, a few years ago, the missing reels mysteriously re appeared. These recordings have become known as, "The Lost Recordings," and have never been available to the public. For the first time, a few of these unfinished tracks have been uploaded here. Today, Doggy Style has re grouped to finish and release, "The Lost Recordings," and possibly follow it with some live shows.
