This feature was first posted right after Christmas in 2002. I actually began working on it nearly a year earlier when I first contacted Dominique Laboubée about the idea of doing an e-mail interview. We crawled along with it through the summer, and then in the fall there came the sudden news that he had died. So the interview was never properly finished, but I’ve tried to round out the story the best I could with help from several French friends. Special thanks to Luc Lemaire and Christian Houllemare, and also to Dominque’s sister Catherine, to the Dogs most recent guitarist Laurent Ciron, and to Roger Donahue.
