Jerry Lehane of The Dogmatics solo debut!! It was 30 years ago today. Well, maybe 29 but close enough for rock ‘n’ roll and there’s that old Sgt. Pepper line we like to trot out and adapt to modern times.

Right around then, Jerry Lehane and some musician pals went in to a Boston studio on three consecutive late nights and banged out five songs, the very five you’ll be hearing on this here EP.

Listen to ‘em and tell me this, though: Don’t they sound like they could be freshly minted, straight outta today’s garage? Or, if you want to acknowledge the pedigree, maybe you could call ‘em vintage fresh.

“They were all done over three days in 1991,” says Lehane. He was, as they say, between bands. The Dogmatics, formed in 1981, had come to an abrupt end in 1986, when bassist Paul O’Halloran was killed in a motorcycle crash. (They have since re-grouped off and on over the years and play a handful of gigs, mostly charity outings, every year.) Post-Dogmatics, Lehane played guitar and wrote songs with the Matweeds from 1987 to 1989. His band Hotbox was in the future.

You’ll hear some rowdiness on the record, but it was not a wild free-for-all session with copious amounts of booze flowing. “We did it pretty quickly,” Lehane recalls. “Recording sessions are pretty boring. It’s work. You pull up the car, you go in at midnight, you shut the door and the outside world goes away.

Lehane’s sound and inspiration have remained the same over the years. “It’s the garage rock sound that has resonated with me - early Kinks and Stones, Chuck Berry, Them, ? and the Mysterians. Not every note is in the right place. It’s rough, but warm.”
