Hot chicks and big riffs

the dirty denimsReady Steady Go - The Dirty Denims (Ghost Highway Recordings)

Hello Barflies! Well folks, The Farmhouse windows have been getting a battering from some great fucking rock 'n' roll from The Netherlands. The Dirty Denims have released their third album (with a couple of EPs before that) and what a dead-set heavy hitter it is.

"Ready Steady Go" is, from the opening self titled track to the very last song, a killer. Miriam Sieben (vocals and piano), Jeroen Teunis (guitars), Suzanne Driessen (drums and sexiness) and Marc Eijkhout (bass) have definitely let all their influences come into the studio with them. Think early AC/DC meets The Runaways with a dash of Ramones and Nashville Pussy.

So this album ain't for anyone looking for ballads or love songs - unless the tune "Thunder From Down Under" counts, because it is a love song for Bon and the Boys.

"Last Call for Alcohol" has one version thats all electric guitars and one that's accoustic. Which to pick? It's a killer sing along romp, other way. "Turn Off The Radio" and "Roll The Dice" just kick arse."Messin Around" is the stand-out track, in my humble opinion. The drumming and vocals are just pure class in a classic sort of way. "Band Not Brand" is a brilliant, inspired Ramones track.

Barflies, The Dirty Denims have not invented the wheel by any means but their bespoke rock and roll version is well worth listening to. Turn this album up loud and you will not be disappointed. Hot chicks and big riffs. What's not to like?

fiveone and a shot please, Barman
