Hard Dubs for Troubled Times by the Talking Dog.

April 21, 2018

The second re-release from The Talking Dog this week…This one was also a limited edition CDR, originally released at Greenbelt Festival in 2004. The Iraq war was still a contentious issue. The sleeve notes said this:
These tracks are the solo works of The Talking Dog (aka Peter Sharpe) 
They reflect some of my feelings about the war in Iraq and the dissonant experience of living in a Babylonian system whilst finding my true identity in Christ as a citizen of the Kingdom of Yahweh. 
The nations lie, cheat and murder. Truth and righteousness are far from us. It seems that many Christians are happy to commit idolatry in their allegiances with Caesar and Mammon. 
Have we forgotten the requirements of the Gospel of Peace? 
Did we ever really know them?

The Beautiful Names of God Volume 1

April 20, 2018

Militant and Triumphant by The Talking Dog

April 19, 2018

We’ve just released a reissue of a great album, Militant and Triumphant, by The Talking Dog. It was originally released in 2005 on CDR.

It’s a great collection of UK roots and dub, all with a gospel flavour.

The Talking Dog is also a member of the Secret Archives of the Vatican live band under his alias, Peter Sharpe.

Green Destiny (Ethnostep Mix) – video

April 9, 2018

We recently released an epic tune, Green Destiny, and blogged about it HERE.

We were asked to contribute a tune to the compilation Ethnostep 8, due for release on Netlabel Day 2018, 14 July. We have contributed to some previous Ethnostep releases so were very happy to be asked.

We edited the track to make it shorter, made a few changes and remixed it. Until it is released, you can check out our new version in this video.
