Profile
Tone Dogs began in 1987 as a studio experiment between musical alchemists Fred Chalenor and Amy Denio, under the creative technological guidance of audio engineer Drew Canulette at Dog Fish Studio up in the hills above Newburg, OR. Fresh pie was served, Fred and Amy played their basses and guitars and drums and whatnot, and luminary guests (Fred Frith, Hans Reichel, Matt Cameron, and others) were invited to contribute. They recorded Ankety Low Day (orig. C/Z Records) and Early Middle Years (orig. Soleilmoon, Will Dowd on drums), and toured the US and Europe through 1991.
