Wild Evel and The Trashbones


Wild Evel and The Trashbones, featuring members of The Staggers and Roadrunners, unleash their hot blast of 60s-inspired beat garage rock ‘n’ roll on to an unsuspecting North American audience this June! 

On their new album, ( released Nov 2017) Digging My Grave, Wild Evel And The Trashbones have distilled the trash beat sound that flowed from the garages of teens across the world in the 60s and dropped it all into a vat of fuzzed out, organ wielding, guttural joy.

The band will bring together all their freakbeat garage influences and lay them out bloodied and battered at the cemetery gates for all to feast on.

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'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.
