Ass-Shaking Soul

Posted on February 12, 2008

We’ve told you how great the new Dirty Americans record ‘Strange Generation’ is. More than once. And come Monday you can find out for yourself, as the record is officially released. Meanwhile, don’t just take our word for it… here is an awesome KKKK review from this week’s Kerrang! magazine… Kerrang! KKKK “Time may have made them little more than a footnote in rock history, but The Workhorse Movement were a pretty good band that promised to become great. So the emergence of Dirty Americans – effectively the same band, minus one rapper and with an exceptional new drummer – should have plenty of people slavering in anticipation. They won’t be disappointed. It’s obvious from the pendulous bounce of ‘No Rest’ onwards that this is music built to be blasted from the stereo of a convertible as you hurtle down the freeway on a hot summer’s day. Dirty Americans go straight for the jugular with straightforward riffs, melodies and honest, sunny stoner vibes rock music at its uplifting, unpretentious best, in love with itself and devoted to easing the rest of us into the same groove with breezy, psychedelic harmonies, feelgood choruses and lashings of ass-shaking soul. From the Hendrix strut of ‘Car Crash’ to the shimmering ‘We Were Young’, this is the work of a supremely confident band who have nailed their sound first time out. ‘Strange Generation’ sounds like one of 2004’s essential purchases.” The Dirty Americans stunning debut album ‘Strange Generation’ is released on March 15th and is available for around 퉌£11.99 from HMV, Virgin (look out for the 퉌£2 off voucher in Kerrang, issue 13/3), MVC, Music Zone plus your local official ‘Roadrage’ store.
