Dirty Water Records & Heatwave Magazine: Announce Strategic Promotional Partnership - Issue 2 Launch Parties!

Press Release   •   Feb 12, 2016 15:15 GMT


London’s leading rock'n'roll record label Dirty Water Records is pleased to announce a strategic promotional partnership with London’s newest rock'n'roll magazine, Heatwave.

Heatwave Magazine has its finger on the pulse of the International and London music scene and last year was our co-promoter for the super, sold out Gories show at the Jazz Café, one of the top events in the London garage-punk and rock’n’roll calendar.


Heatwave aims to cover the coolest bands around, live and on record, plus some of the best sounds from the past. The publication is both in print and online format, and the first issue touched on everything from Northern Irish punk rock in the ’70s to the newest sounds of London town, plus articles on vintage soul music plus candid interview with Danny Kroha of the Gories.

Neus Ruiz, Founder and Managing Director of Heatwave Magazine says, "We are a collective of friends, music lovers and artists that have come together to bring you the latest on bands from all over the world. We are primarily based in London, with staff writers from different places world-wide. If you’d like to contribute, please get in contact with our editorial team here!" 

The print version of Heatwave Magazine will be available at all Dirty Water Club events and at these retailers near you.


The official launch nights of Heatwave # 2 are:

20 February at the MOTH Club in London featuring THE ANOMOLYS (NL) and HUMAN RACE (IT) 

Dirty Water Records will have a record stall at the London Heatwave launch with special deals on all Dirty Water Releases.

26 March in Amsterdam featuring our own JOHNNY THROTTLE (UK).


The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club's name is derived from The Standells' 1966 hit 'Dirty Water' which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.

Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers (from the Cramps), The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The's, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original '60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.

Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
