RECENT LIVE REVIEW OF DIRTBLONDE:
"... Ivan Hell and Lula Blue wow tonight with their drum machine backed-distrorted guitar noise rock, thrilling the crowd with their rock 'n' roll antics, leaving nothing but a trail of shattered ear drums, a beaten to shards pint glass and disgruntled bar staff.
Lula effectively seduces the crowd with her sultry purr and melted-lipstick smearing while Ivan entertains and frightens with his between song banter, in his oxymoronic sweet Brazilian accent, of "We are not a proper band" and "Does anyone like Maximo Park? Does anyone like Arctic Monkeys?" Both bands met with a general despondence from the punters, before Ivan replies "We like Sonic Youth" before ripping into another feedback-ridden noisy number.
The night ends with a fallen make setting off "unwanted" feedback while Ivan and Lula writhe around on the floor, Ivan clutching onto whatever falls into his path to set off bizarre guitar noises before it ends in an absolute show of disdain for his already battered guitar, using a pint glass as a slide before demolishing it. Noisy rock 'n' roll with rope lighting that makes it seem to applaud. Now where did my hearing go?..."
