Presenting...Dirty Summer



Right...on with the new music!

Dirty Summer are Brodie A L Wishart (bass/vocals), Fergus Christie Jack (keys/vocals), and The Banister (drums/cleaning). They make fantastically raucous pop music that sounds like they are taking the mick out of everyone and everything. Given that I never never met John Peel, this might sound presumptuous, but I think I can safely say he would have loved Dirty Summer.

They say they sound like 'Car Crash Pop' -and they do. In the best possible way. They hail from Dunfermline, Fife and remind me of those other scots nippers that have bothered proggers and boring grown-ups over the years, Bis and The Prats. Give these a listen...

Dirty Summer -'War Is Bad Bono Is Great.' mp3

Dirty Summer -'Knees.' m4a

...and if you like them, pop along to their MySpace and make friends. Only cold nast people are unfriendly.

How happy I am to find his blog and get teenage kicks like this. Ever since Peel left us I knew I was being starved of such off-the-radar treats, but this has reminded of just to what extent. I am quite moved to realise it.

And I love that you mention the Prats - who my friend from Moy always spoke fondly of and I since got to hear. I will be alerting him to DIrty Summer for sure.

Happy Lunar new year from out here.
