“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?
"Continuing the grand tradition of sleaze-punk merchants like Richard Hell & The Voidoids and The Jesus And Mary Chain…” The Fly
“Far more abrasive intent than any NYC wannabe… you don’t have a Jack and Meg, you have more of Sid & Nancy meets natural born killers Mickey and Mallory. Lovely” ManchesterMusic Website
