Michael Landau: dog cheese

Dog Cheese was a short lived mid 80's LA based band. The line-up was: Michael Landau - Guitar, Vinnie Colaiuta - Drums, Steve Tavaglione - Keys/Sax, and Larry Klein - Bass. Not too much is known about the band, but there are one or two live bootlegs floating around plus some studio demo material. This video is a bunch of Landau photos with a Dog Cheese track from the rare studio demo material.

Michael Landau was interviewed by Abstract Logix in 2006, and was asked about the Dog Cheese band. This is what he had to say...

Abstract Logix interviw with Michael Landau in 2006 (#95)

AL: Mike, someone was telling me about a band you had with Vinnie Colaiuta called 'Dog Cheese', what was that all about?

ML: "Dog Cheese" was put together right after Joni's '84 tour. It was Vinnie, Larry Klein, Steve Tavaglione and myself. We played original music that Larry and I wrote, and played around L.A. mostly at the "Baked Potato". There are some rough cassette's floating around of live shows, it was some pretty slammin stuff. We never did a record though... Its too bad.

AL: Whats the probability that some of the rough tapes can be gotten hold off ? What was the material for Dog Cheese, were you guys taking some of Jonis compostions at all?

ML: There just a stereo mike "walkman" recordings, too rough to put out... It was all original material by Larry, Steve & myself.

Raimund Burke: uncaged...

Raimund Burke says:
Hey there,
here's another little clip from my latest album "Into my Arena". The song is called "Caged".
I hope you enjoy it!

...Into My Arena is heavily recommended for fans of Jason Becker, Joe Satriani, Sergey Atroschenko (ZEROKARMA), Joe Stump and other guitar heroes with awesome song writing skills. On a last note its also worth to mention that acclaimed musicians like Jeff Kollmann (GLENN HUGES band, solo), Marco Sfogli (JAMES LABRIE band), Charlie Dominici (DOMINICI,ex-DREAM THEATER) and Uli Kusch (HELLOWEEN, MASTERPLAN, BEAUTIFUL SIN..) already have praised Into my Arena...

Rob Chappers: while I was away Rob Chappers has been posting

The Virgin Media cable problem means I miss a lot of videos and news... here's a Rob Chappers round up. I assume this means he's got a replacement video camera for the one he fried...

Hi, we just thought we'd show you a metal tune we are working on... this tune will feature on my forthcoming DVD "Shreducation" and will show case a super secret metal amplifier which is due out soon, I will be using the prototype of said amp in Hollywood this Jan.
