Token Rose video now on YouTube

We’ve put Token Rose, from our Token Rose EP (available on Spotify, iTunes and bandcamp) now on YouTube. It’s not a “new” video proper, just assembling live footage from other videos… all very lo-fi! We don’t have a budget nor friends who can do cool videos for us haha.

We just wanted to put the song out there… you know… we’re still here, still trying to do something better and with more personality than the boring indie music most bands seem to do these days, in Liverpool as much as elsewhere. If you know any other band who’d do a song like Token Rose, with its alternate guitar tuning no-one else has ever used, rhythm track created with circuit-bent kids’ keyboard, moody vocals and which is heavy and rock’n’roll, do let us know! We’re not trying to sound like anything or anyone else – we’re just us and it’s fuckin’ good enough!

You get the picture.

Enjoy the darkness, anyway! And play it LOUD, mofos!

New Gig! Dirtblonde Live Return with Wry at Jacaranda, Liverpool

Dirtblonde live at Jacaranda

Dirtblonde live at Jacaranda in June!

The world was getting bored so we couldn’t help it and had to sort ourselves out for another live comeback. Dirtblonde plays at Jacaranda on Slater St. Liverpool, on 3rd June. We’re pleased to announce that our Brazilian friends from Wry will also be playing! A great band with shoegaze and britpop influences. Support comes from a new Liverpool band, Food, who are definitely worth watching!

Everyone is too safe, clean and content in Liverpool right now… safe in their belief that the music scene is oh so great here but, sorry to say, we disagree.

No, we don’t belong and we’re happy with that. After all, we are still one of the only bands in Liverpool (the only, maybe!) truly influenced by Sonic Youth, Jesus & Mary Chain, Velvet Underground, Patti Smith… if that makes us outsiders then ok!

What’s wrong with people, here! Frankly, we don’t care. So don’t be boring and join us. Enjoy the noise. A luta continua…

click image to watch ‘Brooklyn’ on YouTube and leave your comments!

The song Brooklyn will be available for download on 19th April 2010, alongside White Horses, from www.dirtblonde.co.uk

Inspired by the band´s mini-tour around New York, Brooklyn tells a story of alienation and paranoia in an unfamiliar city…

The video was filmed at Dirtblonde’s local area, at the Liver Laundrette on Aighburth Rd, near Lark Lane, in Liverpool. (Thanks to Beryl – featured wearing a white hair net – for not chucking us out.)

Enjoy, post your comments and don’t forget to visit www.dirtblonde.co.uk again from 19th April, to download the single + bonus tracks!
