Dogs get special support

Mod legend joins the band

Dogs were joined by a very special guest for their show at London ULU last night – Paul Weller (December 15).

Introduced by The Mighty Boosh‘s Noel Fielding as “a legend”, the Modfather took to the stage for a five-song solo set, following scheduled support act Humanzi.

Fielding added: “This man made love to me when I was 12 years



Rumours of Weller‘s appearance had obviously been circulating on Dogs‘ messageboard earlier in the day, as before he took the stage the room was filled with chants of “Weller! Weller!”.

Having just finished a tour with the London band as his support act, the former Jam singer returned the favour with a set that included ‘Hung Up’, ‘Come On/Let’s Go’ and ‘Clues’, before wowing the crowd with rousing versions ‘That’s Entertainment’ and ‘A Town Called Malice’.

In addition, following a storming, Christmas-themed set from Dogs, Weller also joined the band for an encore, tearing through a version of The Jam‘s ”A’ Bomb In Wardour Street’.
