Album Notes
CD REVIEW: Dirty Hurricane - Rude, Crude & Unattractive

by: Cyrus Rhodes
"Dirty Hurricane rocks the house'"

Canadian based (Ontario) band “Dirty Hurricane” just released their debut CD entitled Rude, Crude, and Unattractive in 2013. Band members include Buzzsaw Bob Brown, (vocals), Smokin’ Joe Leskovar (Lead Guitar), Terry Riffgrinder Robertson (Rhythm Guitar, Vocals), and Pretty Boy Zimmerman (Bass) and Andrew Jebediah (Drums). One quote from them I like “We’re not trying to re-invent the rock n’ roll wheel, we’re trying to keep it rolling.”

The CD kicks things off into high gear with intro piece “Feelin’ Gary Payne” a grinding guitar driven groove meshed against driving rock rhythm, emotionally charged vocal delivery from Brown against impressive solo guitar. Track 2 “Lill Further Down the Road” serves up a rock steady groove against well placed Saloon-style Piano, solid low end rhythm section, impressive solo guitar and well placed vocal harmonies from Brown and company that takes no prisoners. Track 3 ‘Sally Friday” my personal favorite keeps pushing hard with its slithering guitar intro eventually lending itself into a pulsating rock groove with an infectious rock melody that flows and ebbs its way through to emotional fruition. As the CD unfolds I can hear many musical influences reminiscent of AC/DC, Airborne, Black Crows, Motorhead, and even Motey Crue. Right from the start you will notice these 5 lads feel quite comfortable just letting it all hang out musically, not holding anything back. The overall musical vibe has a nice, raw hard rock feel to it reminiscent of music popular back in the late nineties yet with a modern day twist and feel. The guitar playing hits you right between the eyes and dishes out impressive heavy R&B type guitar licks all built upon a solid low end rhythm foundation. The vocal timber from Brown is full of passion and recklessness abandon. The musicianship from all the other members in the band has everything you would expect from a no holds barred standard ho hold barred rock band. Besides the four piece standard I can also hear well placed Organ, lush vocal harmonies, impressive solo guitar, all built upon a thick as a brick rhythm section. The songs themselves are consistent musical experiences, each one possessing unique personality, flair and signature groove. From rocking “I’m Gone” to rock steady “Long Way to Go” to good time “Are You Ready” to melodic “Show me Your Charms” to hard hitting “C’mon C’mon” to melodic California Widow” this CD has something for just about everyone. The CD ends with Track 10 “King Stryder” the prefect finale statement for a CD of this caliber.

All songs over 3.5 minutes tend to drag you to the finish line. At the end of the day this 10 track catalogue is guilty of being a bit repetitive overall.

In close Rude, Crude, and Unattractive by Dirty Hurricane rocks the house and proves where there is smoke there is fire. From start to finish this CD is an action packed production from start to finish. It’s strong suit – its raw feel almost as if you were watching a band play in a live setting. If these guys have a slam dunk live presentation then that would be a deadly combination indeeed. The songs are extremely heavy, melodic, passionate and powerful. This band will no doubt get your adrenalin pumping. Yep – it looks like Rock n Roll wheel is still rolling along just fine.

Review: Their latest CD entitled Rude, Crude and Unattractive was released in 2013. I have to say I was extremely impressed with the opening 3 tracks “Feelin’ Gary Payne”, “Lil Further Down the Road” and “Sally Friday”. They made quite the first impression and each one possessed my full unadulterated attention. To be honest: I expected cheesy Indy Hard Rock that was extremely predictable and shallow in nature – very compatible for a mass audience. What I discovered was actually quite the opposite. The whole CD is wonderfully conservative yet full of what I would call explosive full-tilt energy with music that appeals to so many different senses on so many different levels. It reminds me of classic Led Zeppelin, Foghat and even AC/DC. On the other side of the sonic spectrum I can hear Velvet Revolver, Guns and Roses and even Marc Ford. I can also hear the slight Alternative Rock, Hard Rock, Classic Rock influence in there as well. What I really like about Dirty Hurricane is no attempt to sugar coat the truth or deliver what I call over the top alt rock. Cheezy music with an over the top front man via top flight sampling, cookie cutter songwriting via a mix that sounds more like a commercial than a piece of music. None of the above here! Rude, Crude and Unattractive will also appeal to both advanced and novice listeners alike – but make no bones about it this is Rock n’ Roll. Whatever kind of listening level you’re on – some will identify with things while others will not. Like a three layered cake Dirty Hurricane is one band that has a lot of depth and has so much to offer. Weather it’s musically, lyrically, inspirationally, emotionally, spiritually – if you feel like music is taking us in the wrong direction than rest assured Hey Sugar is taking us back in the right direction with this release.

Bottom Line: Dirty Hurricane will affirm your faith in good Rock n Roll again. They are a unique, hard working rock band that knows their way around a stage as they are currently on the Warp Tour. At the end of the day Rude, Crude and Unattractive is one hell of a wild ride and delivers 10 solid tracks. Dirty Hurricane delivers action packed musicianship, entertaining songwriting and music that covers all the bases: Alternative Rock, Hard Rock, Classic Rock.

Dirty Hurricane, Rude, Crude & Unattractive
July 11, 2013
By Skope


So what is Avant-Garde? Avant-garde quite simply represents a pushing of the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or status quo primarily in popular culture. The notion of the existence of the avant-garde is considered by some to be a hallmark of modernism. I like to think of it as uncharted water. So enter Dirty Hurricane a 5 piece Rock n’ Roll band based out of Ontario, Canada. I get the impression these 5 wanted to smash through the modern mold of traditional rock and go back in time a bit with their more retro 70’s sound. In this aspect they are kind of Avant-Garde right? Their latest10 Track CD entitled Rude, Crude & Unattractive is a rocked out, good time, exciting album full of music that can be listened to in any situation. The songs on the album are a mixture of music that will encourage you to tap your foot, get rowdy but also offers a wide variety of emotions and subject matter. All 10 tracks provide a intensely exhilarating experience that can tingle the senses into submission. In this aspect I think I get Dirty Hurricane 100%. Indeed over the years music is best enjoyed loud for many different reasons. Some feel music is a way to buzz the senses during any activity – concerts, clubs, dancing, exercising, getting drunk, all of the above and more – you get it. Some want to go deeper and darker. Music reminds me of The Smithereens, Rolling Stones and Grand Funk. From one of their more rocked out tracks “Sally Friday” and “C’mon C’mon” to more straight forward “I’m Gone, “Feelin’ Gary Payne”, and L’il Further Down the Road” this album covers a lot of territory. Rude, Crude & Unattractive offers an ample listening environment with a rock steady sound that sets an intensely creative/subjective mood. This will encourage the listener to delve in life’s good times, no matter what the circumstances. These 5 Cannucks deserve a lot of credit for bringing all this together. As a result Rude, Crude & Unattractive is an interesting avant-garde musical project worth checking out. Their energetic, stimulating sound can be appreciated by anyone that enjoys music, even those who typically may not enjoy one particular genre. I enjoyed this album sitting on my couch on full blast, with eyes closed eager to see where the musical journey took me. I must also admit I was shall I say impaired at the time, and the experience was that much more exhilarating and stimulating. This sounds so simple but it’s in this setting Dirty Hurricane will work its magic to the fullest potential.

The Review

Who doesn’t like rock music from Canada? However I’d bet not all hands go up in the air. I mean, while rock music from Canada might not be your first and foremost musical choice, most people can get into a good Canadian rock groove and really enjoy well written and performed music within in that genre from time to time. You know bands like: Rush, Saga, Aldo Nova, Bryan Adama, Triumph, Bare Naked Ladies the list goes on and on. Well, keeping this in mind this new release by Dirty Hurricane entitled interestingly enough Rude, Crude and Unattractive is an exceptional CD that’s a very multi-dimensional to say the least. Oh and did I mention they are from Toronto Canada? It also however possesses a old school rock core accessible by all music fans. Does all of this sound a bit over the top to you? Just listen to marquee tracks like “L’ll Further Down the Road”, King Stryder”, “C’mon C’mon and you’ll see my perspective. I got hooked on DH right away after reading their bio: Dirty Hurricane is a Toronto band consisting of 5 working class guys that came together in August of 2008 to create a kick ass hard driving rock band. No white belts, weird hairdo's and wimpy songs here.... They write and play foot stomping, beer drinking rock music for people that are starving for some good ol' rock 'n roll with some heavy R&B and Americana served hot on the side. They write songs about people they have known, places they have been and things they have done. Since their inception they have released a 5 song EP that is currently being played on 105.5 CHRY, featured on Y108 107.9 fm Get Hammered program and have played some of the city's finer venues. Kudos goes out to the amazing guitar-vocal tandems by Buzzkill Brown and Smokin’ Joe Leskovar. This 2 pronged delivery is really a big part of their sound. It adds a sort of a classic rock stigma to the disc, I hate to pigeonhole but if you like The Wildflowers, Robbie Williams, Counting Crows, Hootie and the Blowfish on steroids you will like the music of Dirty Hurricane. While the main focus of this genre of music is generally the instrumental work, that doesn’t mean that the vocals fall behind here. They never feel like an afterthought. Hence the vocal work from Fonda brings it all together. These guys manage to move between the mellower sounds and the more rocking ones all the while being undeniably progressive based.

The Bottom Line All in all it’s a powerful combination that puts a band like Dirty Hurricane on the map for 2013. They should go a long way towards proving that real music is still alive and well. Rude Crude & Unattractive is an album that I just can’t recommend enough.
