EUR 10,00EUR 12,00

Ace debut album from this brand new and bloody young Mod-Punk band from Brighton in the classical 3 piece line-up!

The name speaks for itself: Catchy British three-chord-punk, call and response between lead singer and a gang chorus featuring classic “Oh oh oh”, speedy drumming and simple but melodically appropriate guitar parts. Rough harmonies give real power to the almost football-chant choruses that are instantly sing-a-long-able. Dirt Royal are anything but only young and well-dressed puppets, this youngsters know exactly what they do and they have something to say. Their opinions and observations of modern life get the impression that the life hasn´t really moved on since the Thatcher years. This 10 songs so clearly fit in with that sound that is still held in true adoration by fans of bands such as early The Jam/ The Clash, The Undertones and the much more powerfull live sound of The Chords.

Mastered by Smail Shock to give the sound its special piquancy.
