Album Notes
The Dirty Birds are not your typical 4-piece rock band. Creative and technical songwriting, ultra high energy performances, and a firm grip on what has made rock music so great in the past are just a few of the attributes that put these cats above and beyond the rest. How about some Billy Gibbons inspired swamp stomp guitar? Ya like that? Don't get too used to it, cos' it'll turn on you in half a second and bite your ass with punk ferocity. Go ahead and add in lead "yakitty" sax, mud-slicked slide guitar, and the occasional delta-blues harp and you're starting to get the idea. But wait, there's more! Bass guitar mastery. Period. Think Entwistle. Think heavy. Think all fingers, all the time. Drums? Yeah, we got 'em. And ya know what? They'll kick your eardrums inside out. LOUD!! Played with jazz's attention to detail, and the power and intensity of the greats - Bonham, Watts, Moon. Dig it? Layer it all up with some gravel and gasoline raw thoat vocals, and ya'll got THE DIRTY BIRDS. Now give it a listen, and buy one. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

Birds of a different feather
Who says a saxophone doesn’t belong in a punk band? Don’t say that to Olympia, Washington’s Dirty Birds.
Their debut CD Rust and Resurrection is the coolest mixture of 70’s stoner rock riffs ie. Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Foghat etc. with New York Dolls attitude and deadly saxophone solos. You wouldn’t think such a mix would work, but it does, just because these birds can play and rip your face off in the process.
Asphalt Farmer is the sleazy cousin to Deep Purple’s Highway Star. House of Mirrors hits immediately with a driving harmonica powered riff. The Dirty Birds dare to be different.

First of all, Richard Amery, this is hardly the Dirty Birds debut CD. The Dirty Birds have been ripping peoples faces off since 1997 when they released their self-titled disc, which is a must have for any new fan of this assemblage of musical mercenaries. As with any other band, they get better with age,as they proved with the release of 1999's 'Plum Crazy'. And as with any other great and unmatched act, these guys should really be seen live in order to appreciate the incindiary, volatile performance of Jimmi Davies, the mad but masterful precision of Mike Trobman on drums and Scott Swayze's straight from hell guitar licks. Walk into the dingey Eastside Club in Olympia, Washington and you'll see proof of years of performing in this favorite watering hole with walls covered in show flyers from years past, and if you're really daring, you can smell the sweat and attitude mingled with years of nicotine stains plastered to the forty year old wood-panelled walls. And finally, they keep it coming as only they can with the latest installment, Rust and Resurrection. The best yet from the boys. Their 60's and 70's rock/stomp influences really shine in this album and the production is flawless. Just a taste of what Olympia has been putting out for years. Unique and unlike anything you've put in your ears in years. Buy a copy...buy one for a friend.
