Boston's international ambassadors of garage punk rock'n'roll never rest!
Muck and the Mires, Rum Bar Records, and Dirty Water Records have a VD surprise for you; hey, you may even want to pass it on to your Valentine on the grounds that "Cupid's Not A Friend Of Mine"!
This is a taste from Muck and the Mires' latest full length release "Greetings From Muckingham Palace" released this spring on Dirty Water Records:
Muck and the Mires, Rum Bar Records and Dirty Water Records have a lot of history together. A label stalwart of Dirty Water since we met over a Las Vegas roulette table (true!), the Mucks have also released some dynamite releases on Rum Bar including the Double White Line 7" (from the Kim Fowley sessions) and the Muckus Maximus 10" / CD EP.
We at Dirty Water are pleased and proud to remain part of the Muck and the Mires story along with the legendary Malibu Lou and his Rum Bar Records rock'n'roll machine.
If you're in Boston, catch Muck and the Mires with the return of The Dogmatics and Tom Baker for the Rum Bar Records Anniversary Party on February 22nd @ The Square Root, Roslindale MA. Plus:
- February 29th @ Desmond’s Tavern, New York City
- March 20th @ Cafe 9, New Haven CT w/The Fleshtones!!
- April 3rd @ Winter’s Tavern, Pacifica, CA
Their music is so good, we are so proud to bring it to you, and we can not stop our dancing shoes. So get em' on, get it up, and get it off with Cupid and Muck and the Mires today!
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 22.214.171.124'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.
