Of the forthcoming album Dan from Snakerattlers said “This album is a culmination of two years of very hard work. We’ve literally put every ounce of energy we have into this record. We’ve heard the test pressings, and I genuinely think we’ve produced the best album in mine and Naomi’s “career” as a songwriting team.”
The album will be reviewed here at Louder THan War, having heard it I can say that its fantastic, and is a clear progression from the 2017 debut ‘This Is Rattlerock’ (LTW Review), and should see the band reach a far wider audience.
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 188.8.131.52'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.
