What kind of music is Dirty Water all about? Mostly it's a sound that's directly (or sometimes less directly) influenced by sixties garage rock - stuff like the Sonics, the Thirteenth Floor Elevators, the Standells (of course), the Seeds, the Chocolate Watch Band, the Velvet Underground, Captain Beefheart. We like it best when there's a hint of the blues in amongst the punk rock. We like to call it "rock and roll". Rock is good, but not if there's no roll. And vice versa.

Of course, these days there are more kids picking up guitars and thinking that they're in a garage band than when we started out (as well as so many more venues who are receptive to and interested in the music). Often it bears little relation, on the surface, to what we would think of as a "garage band". But youthful verve and enthusiasm can all too often make up for what's lacking elsewhere. By which I mean, yes the Dirty Water Club does have a certain musical ethos - but it's not too rigid.

But to really understand what we're all about you have to be there. You might not have heard of all the bands that play each week but, I promise you this, there won't be too many you won't like. See you at the bar, mine's a Guinness!
