Metal Anarchy’s New Music Showcase: Q&A With Lost Dogs Of Ultimo

Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to artists that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have a Q&A with Lost Dogs Of Ultimo.

METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:

LOST DOGS OF ULTIMO: Lost Dogs Of Ultimo was conceived in 2020 during Lockdowns in Melbourne Australia and was a project I started when I was walking the laneways of Melbourne taking Photographs and Videos of all the great Street Art we have here and then creating some soundtracks in My studio to add some texture to what I’d captured. Then it just transformed into a music based project focusing on themes around life experiences like Death and Mental Health and some of the street culture I’m into like Skate and Surf

METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?

LOST DOGS OF ULTIMO: I was originally drawn to the MC5, The Saints, Henry Rollins, and any other hard fast angry music of Punk and then got exposed to some Reggae sounds through The Clash. Now I like how some of these styles merge their collective styles

METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?

LOST DOGS OF ULTIMO: I’ve just released a version of ‘Police and Thieves,’ a song written by Junior Murvin and Lee Scratch Perry, but was made Popular by The Clash. Its a little different with some changes to the structure and sound using some samples and Loops but still quite heavy with a lot of Bass tracks in there.

METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?

LOST DOGS OF ULTIMO: I’m trying to put together an interactive show using Street Artists and Live Music feeding off each others energy with input from the audience. It should be quite an experience

METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?

LOST DOGS OF ULTIMO: I’m hoping to continue to develop the Project and evolve with some collaborations that should see the music take on some more creative direction and hope to get a few tracks slotted into a soundtrack or gaming program integrating the Art and Music still as the digital world starts to grow I want to be at the front of the pack to take the music to a larger audience
