Dogs Must Be Carried is a comedy music collective started by Richard Cray whose primary belief is that the fun needs to be put back into music.

Since 1998, the collective has recorded original comedy songs, pastiches of certain artists, direct parodies of songs and the occasional mutant cover version, some of which are actually quite good. Most were made using a low-fi ethic of no budget, hardly any instruments and an eight-track cassette Portastudio, although both editing and mastering are now done in the digital domain.

Initially, these recordings were made purely for the amusement of friends. However, after several of these friends started chipping in with ideas, the parodies became more cutting - whilst still remaining affectionate towards their targets - and other material started to display the occasional original hook.

After four and a half years, Richard, along with Jeremy Wray, tested DMBC's commercial potential, successfully corrupting its target demographic when their co-written track United Kingdom of Whenever (a parody of Liam Lynch's hit United States of Whatever) received airplay from Christian O'Connell, Steve Lamacq and the legendary Dr. Demento.

In the summer of 2005, DMBC became the "house band" of leading independent podcast Comedy 365.

As a result of this exposure, a self-funded debut CD, ALL OF US ARE STARS BUT SOME OF US ARE AIMING FOR THE GUTTER, was released in May 2006.

Work on new material is scheduled for 2007 and will be premiered on Comedy 365, as well as made available for download at Audio Street.
