The Big Dirty
The Day The Devil Came To Town
Northampton metallers The Big Dirty have taken everything cool about 70s and 80s heavy rock music and made it their own. Having gained a huge following in their local area and beyond, thanks to amazing live shows and international radio play, The Big Dirty now release yet another high quality romp through guitar, bass, and drum. Even the BBC have aired their music, as a person whose also been aired on this network with poetry, I know how much of a big deal that is. Rock and metal bands tend to break the rules and push boundaries. The rebellious streak found in their music sometimes manifests as a real streaker on stage, that is when they're not performing in women's clothes or firing whiskey water pistols into the crowd.
With ferocious guitar licks on the pentatonic scale, the song rips open in a flurry of rock. Powerful vocals lay down melodic lines in between the dynamic riffs which roll out in perfect timing. Aggressive backing vocals add a colour of energy to the already strong delivery while pounding drums break down a steady and head capturing beat. Roaring distortion with perfect performing brings expertly laid down chords in spot on timing to reveal a core of quality difficult to achieve with ruckus music like this. Effortlessly pinning down their heavy metal style with a laid back and easy going attitude, the music tells a story of a woman who we all know is no good. Not worth your effort, unless you want to dance with the devil.
