"Why's a Dog" was released on DJ Dog Dick's The Life Stains LP on HOSS Records almost a year ago. The accompanying video, directed and edited by Joe Skinner and premiering here, is a bizarrely mesmerizing complement to the cacophony of synth and vocal effects, guitar, bass, drums and other sounds crawling through this song. It is catchy and disorienting all at once, and like much of this Baltimore-born, Rockaways-living half-Jewish, noise emcee's material, it is hard not to feel a little bit confused when it's done. Max Eisenberg, the man behind DJ Dog Dick, sheds some light on the track and video below.
