Advance Tickets for Dirty Water Club - Saturday 1 Sept 

After laying waste to the European garage rock club and festival circuit, kiwi cretins The Cavemen  return to nuke London at the Dirty Water Club . Yep. Those glue sniffing, guitar slinging creeps are gonna hit their favourite watering-hole like a sack of plague infected blankets.

We’ve heard tell of their escapades in Europe: they had stand offs with Italian military over desecrated churches, altercations with Barcelona airport security over contraband tobacco, and very little sleep.


The Cavemen formed in high school over a shared love of glue and wild rock ‘n’ roll. Having spent several years drinking and loitering around the various basements, graveyards and parking lots of Auckland, The Cavemen honed their rock ‘n’ roll chops, emerging from their troglodytic existence in around 2012 to deliver NZ back to the Stone Age.


Punk Rock genius Charlie Murphy ( Red Cords, The Hip Shakes, Freak Genes, Murph & The Gazorpos ) of Nerve Centre Records unveils his latest ultra-secret brilliant offering M.RUTT along with London's other Kiwi punk transplants Night Shades.

Nerve Centre Records will have their catalogue available before and after the gig so come pick up a few records!

Dirty Water DJs will keep the party going until 02:00.

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, Country Teasers, Black Lips, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers, The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The 5.6.7.8'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.
