Supporting the mighty, noisy & exciting Help She Can't Swin @ High-Voltage this Thursday 16th March, another mighty, noisy & exciting new band - Dirtblonde (http://www.dirtblonde.co.uk)
A good reason to come early! Dirtblonde have been establishing themselves as the best, coolest and most rocknroll new band in Liverpool, a far cry from the nice nicey retro loveliness of The Coral/ The Zutons and all those bands from Liverpool who gave it a retro reputation. Dirtblonde reaches for the dark, sexy and nosiy realms of J&MC f**k you noise attitude. Chaotic messy gigs, broken glass, broken guitars, sweat and lipstick.
Dirtblonde already found support from the most diverse sources, including Alan McGee, who has arranged a few gigs for them in London, and likes the band so much he's agreed to come to Liverpool just to be Guest DJ at their club night F*CK, which happens at the coolest new venue in Liverpool, KOROVA.
Of Dirtblonde, the POPTONES website has said:
"Dirtblonde are the evillest, scuzziest motherf**kers aroundâ€”donâ€™t let their too-cool-for-school code names of Lula Blue and Ivan Hell put you off ... Poptones.co.uk have never listened to such unabashed bile of pure rockâ€™nâ€™roll scuzz since weâ€™ve last put on Jesus and Mary Chainâ€™s Psychocandy â€˜Never Understandâ€™. Dirtblonde roll around in drugged-up punk rock f**k you noise like they are the last rockâ€™nâ€™roll gang in town. "
They are hardly the only ones to share this excitement.
REVIEW OF RECENT GIG:
"Dirtblonde hail from Liverpool and are a 2-piece. Their first song is a song you canâ€™t argue with! Thrashy beats and rampant rockâ€™n'roll. They seem so much at home that they don lipstick and stand on the speakers. This is theatre in all itâ€™s dirty musical loveliness. Their guitars play and synchronise with each other in electric ecstasy. They rock themselves into the floor and even try to get beneath it and this is music to get lost in. This is music to dance yourself to death. Even the microphone stands become playthings in their hands. This duo have cut out any foreplay and gone straight in for the kill, to the hardcore stuff, no messing around; taken us straight to where we want to be and they keep us there, song after song. In true Rockâ€™n'Roll fashion, they finish with an explosion of guitar chords and fairy lights; Classic!"
