Powered by Audioscrobbler™Tymon Dogg is a violinist, guitarist, and keyboardist, from England who was once singed to Pye records, Threshold records, and also on the verge of singing with Apple records. He recorded several songs with Paul McCartney and James Taylor, yet they were unfortunately never released due to a number of problems at the time.

In the late 60's and early 70's, he released a pair of singles for both Pye and Threshold, one of which "The Bitter Thoughts of Little Jane" has recently appeared on the Nuggets II compilation.

In the early 70's he teamed up with a young Joe Strummer and together they busked in and around England and Europe. Tymon was an early influence on Joe Strummer, teaching him to play chords on a guitar, among other things.

After a solo album in 1976, Tymon formed the band Tymon Dogg & The Fools with drummer Richard Dudanski (101'ers, PiL), though no recordings were released. In 1980, Tymon played on The Clash's Sandinista! LP, singing his song "Lose This Skin". In 1982 he released a 2nd solo album called Battle Of Wills, and also that year played on various tracks of the Clash's final album with their original line-up, "Combat Rock". In 1987 he formed the duo Frugivores, releasing the album "New Age Songs". A third solo LP "Relentless" would follow in 1989.

In 2000 he joined Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros, co-writing most of the groups 2nd album "Global A Go-Go" as well as providing violin, Spanish guitar, acoustic and electric guitar, and mandolin. The Mescaleros with Tymon played near a hundred gigs across the globe. Tymon has also recorded with Ian Hunter, Ellen Foley, The Poison Girls, Largatija Nick, and El Doghouse.

In August/September 2006 and March 2007, Tymon released a new single/EP with new band The Quikening. The single is called "Guantanamo" and can be heard along with two other tracks at:
