The Filth Hounds have been show regulars right back to show 2 and I always like play 'em when I get the chance. This album, Release The Hounds is worth buying just on the strength of the track The Trilogy alone; it's an album full of classic sounding British Rock and it's fair to say I'm 'Hooked On' The Filth Hounds!
