Bio

Dirty York have earned a solid reputation in recent years as a hardworking, creative and charismatic old school rock n’ roll band. Hailing from Melbourne Australia, this seasoned six-piece blues/rock ensemble has inspired fans across the globe with their dynamic live performances, TV appearances and studio albums. In 2009 Dirty York released their debut album entitled Waiting On St George. Working out of a friend’s studio in rural Victoria (‘Turk’s’ Dairy Shed Studio), the group were given a window of opportunity to explore the sounds and aesthetics of what would become a relentless and exciting journey. This was an important period of the group’s development, solidifying direction and the overall attitude encompassed by the individuals involved. The album was well received by rock, blues, southern rock and indie enthusiasts alike. The year 2011 saw the release of the ambitious Say Goodbye To Diamonds, a big old fashioned rock ‘n’ roll album with an underlying modern edge. Dirty York’s sound, referred to by the local media as “Neo Classic” led the group to a plethora of praise and recognition both at home and abroad. This LP was a huge achievement for an independent Australian band and showed great defiance in the face of adversity, an attitude that is now regarded as synonymous with Dirty York. After years of touring the speckled landscape of Australia’s east coast and many shows in their hometown of Melbourne, Dirty York were invited to perform at Spain’s Azkena Rock Festival. An opportunity to play in front of a brand new audience wasn’t wasted and European interest in the band was realised with great enthusiasm. Dirty York returned to Europe in May 2012, where they performed a live-to-air broadcast on the world acclaimed WDR program Rockpalast in Bonn, Germany before undertaking a 2 month tour of Europe spanning 34 dates in 8 countries. Dirty York released their third album Feed the Fiction in early 2013. The group embarked on another European tour in May 2013 to coincide with their new release. A fourth album is due in early 2015. Lovers of rock 'n' roll stay tuned...

Sounds a lot like Black Crowes to me, but there's a lot of skill evident in this song. Plus, I love the title. Do the girls look like Jesus too?
