DoGs Band, Richard Duguay and DNile Assist
By DONNA BALANCIA
Mike Spent has teamed with Loren Molinare, Tony Mateucci, Richard Duguay and DNile on a new video for the single “Sun Goes Gray.”
The video for “Sun Goes Gray” portrays a gritty cross-border scenario in which the world takes on a dark meaning. It’s an intimite portrayal of loss of love and the will to go on, a feeling most have experienced at one time or another. The song is catchy and the video is a creative piece if not a little dark and could be considered *not suitable for watching in a work environment.*
Spent, who has more than 30 years of songwriting, recording and live performance experience, is known for his band the Spent Idols.
Mike Spent as SoCal Local
San Diego-born Spent started his first band, Spent Idol, in 1978. By the 1990s he had secured a place in the independent music scene.
In 2016, Spent hooked up with Molinare, the guitar player for the DoGs of Detroit; Michael DeBarres of Little Caesar; Richard Duguay, best known for his band Personality Crisis; Tony Matteucci of the DoGs on drums and back up vocals; and DNile, former Spent Idols and Dead Blonde Girlfriend bass player.
Together they wrote and recorded the two-song CD single, Mike Spent Black Belt, featuring two songs, “I Am A Lion” and “Sun Goes Gray.”
“I Am A Lion” is a sing-along anthem written by Duguay, Spent, DNile and Jay Kipling that reflects on the 1970s London early punk scene.
Teamwork on ‘Sun Goes Gray’
“Sun Goes Gray” was based on a guitar riff that Molinare came up with over 35 years ago and entrusted to Spent to develop as a song together. “Sun Goes Gray” was released on SpentCity Unlimited Records.
