Dirty Power cover; the band
Dirty Power are a down and dirty hard rock/metal
band who come from a punk rock background . These bearded former
punk rockers (including Patrick Goodwin of Pansy Division) have
a sound which is undeniably influenced by the best of seventies
hard rock bands such as AC/DC, Thin Lizzy and Kiss, while it may
remind some of late Eighties LA "strip bands" like Guns
and Roses and L.A. Guns. It also fits in well along side "stoner"
bands like Kyuss, Fu Manchu, and Queens of the Stone Age.
The lines between categories such as "classic
rock", "garage punk" and "eighties metal"
have become blurred, and fans of everything from arena rock to
blues based hard rock will have no problem relating to the sound
of Dirty Power. Dirty Power plays their style of rock so purely
and so unconsciously, that they don't care what genre they may
get lumped into or which people do or don't get their music.
The album is produced by Jack Endino, whose
credits include a whos who of the Seattle Grunge scene (Mudhoney,
Soundgarden, Screaming Trees, etc.). Jack has always been able
to capture the energy and excitement of a band at their highest
intensity of live performance on clean, near perfect studio recordings.
This is his best work in years.
One listen to the opening track , "LSD"
will be all you need to get the full impact of the greatness of
this album. It is, quite simply, the best hard rock track Ive
heard in years. Good things certainly lie ahead for Dirty Power.
