Review of Do$ch - 3rd March 2007 © Brian Holliday

If you’d paid to see em they’d be great value for money – three sets rather than the usual two and, in the style of Wilko or the The Feelgoods, Do$ch just get stuck in! The first time we saw Do$ch we thought they looked pretentious, what with the top hat and long coats, but as soon as Ian began to play his bespoke doschcaster in front of the rock solid raw edged rhythm section of ex Prowler bassist Richard Makinson and drummer Phil Gilbert then those thoughts were banished. Andrew too– top hat and all – has a larger than life stage presence and clearly enjoys entertaining the appreciative public, even though he claims in all honesty to be "just messing about"!!

The three sets, with their own "story" songs (available on CD –Money To Burn) interspersed with a few made famous by the aforesaid Canvey Islanders and Mick Green and co, went all too quickly. This band enjoy performing and those fortunate enough to be in the audience enjoy it too. Ian Bartrum is clearly a natural guitar genius with a bigger rack of guitars than Hamster Slim, all put to good use!

We're a bit worried about the ever present Mr Do$schtray, what will become of him when the baccy ban comes in???

This website has been down to the doctors to make it feel good and alright.
