Dirtblonde and I Am Austin are playing Upstairs @ The Zanzibar this Friday, 13th May. It'll be ace! Doors 8PM, £5 entry.
“Dirtyfilthynastyrocknrollfuckers” The Austin Chronicle, Texas
“Dirtblonde operate in a twilight world where the canonical bands are not the Beatles or Beach Boys and their heirs but the Cramps, 60s garage punk, The Stooges, Pussy Galore, The Kills, mid 70s New York punk. An imagined place where music can offend and inspire not simply end up as incidental music in a mall or on football highlights. And for this, and their winning ways with the primitive, primeval riff and hook, I salute them. Turn up the treble and pass the amphetamine please!” Is This Music?
"Scuzzy, raw, and seemingly built upon total and utter boredom with everything. Dirtblonde are a two-sword rock’n'roll traincrash and we like them a lot.” The Stool Pigeon
“Continuing the grand tradition of sleaze-punk merchants like Richard Hell & The Voidoids and The Jesus And Mary Chain…” The Fly magazine

"Garage rock assault on the ears! A Blistering force!" Bido Lito
"I Am Austin are all hair, hormones and songs about lust" "It's a big, bruising sound that always threatens to explode violently" A new band a day . com
