"Too much is always better than not enough"

Not to be confused with the Danish band of the same name, Diamond Dogs hail from Sweden and 'Too Much Is Always Better' is their 2nd full length album of Stones/Faces influenced good time rock 'n' roll. This follows the debut long-player 'As Your Greens Turn Brown' and their two fantastic mini-albums 'Among The Non-Believers' & 'Shortplayer'. Extensive European touring has garnered them an ever growing following. With a classic timeless, pure rock 'n' roll sound, their style of music will never go out of fashion as they attract fans from many different genres, all meeting at the musical equivalent of the base-line!

The eight -piece line up comprises :
Anders Lindstrom (aka Bobba Fett) : Guitars (also in Hellacopters)
Stefan Bjork : Bass (ex Wilmer X)
Stevie Klasson : Guitars (Johnny Thunders, Glen Matlock, Patti Palladin and so on)
Darell Bath : Guitars (ex Dogs Damour, UK Subs, Ian Hunter and so on....)
Sulo : Vocals
Jesper Karlsson : Drums
Henrik Widen (aka Honk) : Piano, Organ
Matthias Hellberg : Absent guitar, Harp (ex Hellacopters also in Hederos/Hellberg)

Produced by Tomas Skogsberg at Sunlight Studios in Stockholm, the album is a full-on blast of quintessential rock music, 12 tracks of good time, good feeling old school r 'n' b , which makes you wanna laugh, cry and dance at the same time. the up-tempo beginnings of 'Charity Song' to the stoner anthem 'All Strung Out' and on to the albums killer climax, I Shall Not Be Moved' this album sees the Diamond Dogs masterplan come to fruition.
Here is what vocalist Sulo has to say about his band:
"What is rock & roll basically about? A question asked more than a million times and without any given answer. There are probably as many opinions about this subject as there are dedicated rockers. Despite this am I pretty sure about that nobody can deny that Diamond Dogs with 'Too Much Is Always Better' has succeeded to summarize the highlights of Rock & Roll. I am totally aware of that there are similarities to bands like Rolling Stones, Mott The Hoople
and perhaps most of all The Faces. Despite this I am certain that the band most of all sound like Diamond Dogs. 'Too Much Is Always Better' contains a number genres. The listener is able to find party rock & roll, tasteful ballads, heartbreaking countryrock and messy boogie stuff. In other words this is the kinda album that will make you wanna dance, get drunk, fall in love over and over again. And perhaps it will make Rod Stewart call Ron Wood to bring the Faces back
together again."
