PRESS LIST

After a string of recent successful USA dates (including an epic appearance at GONER FEST) DERV GORDON, the immortal voice of the one and only THE EQUALS is ready to storm Europe! Backed by Oakland based stomp/glam band SO WHAT.

Derv Gordon will tour Europe next month. The first confirmed show will take place at FUNTASTIC DRACULA FESTIVAL in Benidorm, Spain, on 2 November along with a special appearance at the  Dirty Water Club on the 7th at Nambucca.

The Equals were unstoppable for the best part—truly the best part!—of two decades, breaking out in 1966 with their classic “Baby Come Back” and zig-zagging through hit after cult hit until the end of the 1970s. In between, they took soul, r&b, rock, glam, proto-punk, disco and funk and transformed them into their own unequaled sound, bristling with hooks and driven by an absolutely relentless beat.

They were a step ahead in everything, from the music they played to the way they dressed to who they were—uniquely a mixed-race band and a majority-immigrant band, too—and while founding member Eddy “Electric Avenue” Grant would find solo fame in the 80s, the Equals’ reputation among musicians and music fans grows stronger each generation. Plenty of other bands covered the Clash, but the Clash covered the Equals .

Very few bands can claim to be equally revered by lovers of psych, mod, ska, punk, funk, R&B, disco, glam, and bubblegum pop, and had a racially integrated lineup in the turbulent 60s—and had hits. The Equals were such a band. Formed in a council flat in the UK in 1965, the Equals featured Grant, twin brothers Derv and Lincoln Gordon, and Caucasian musicians John Hall and Pat Lloyd. Their 1968 breakout single, “Baby Come Back,” with its pop-ska rhythm, reached number one in Germany, the Netherlands, and the UK—and an impressive #32 on the U.S. charts (it was later covered by Bonnie Raitt in 1982).

More hits followed, including the pure pop “I Get So Excited,” the blistering proto-funk “Black Skinned Blue Eyed Boys” and “Stand Up and Be Counted,” and the poppy “Michael and the Slipper Tree.” The sleek 1976 disco single “Funky Like a Train” has been reissued multiple times.

Four years ago, SF native and megafan Jason Duncan (So What) took on the task of writing a book on the Equals, and when he tracked down Derv Gordon in London for an interview, he mentioned his band So What would be honored to back him for a special one-off show. That gig happened in May of this 2017, and in 2018 So What will join Gordon for a full European tour.

If you’ve never delved into the world of Derv Gordon and The Equals, you now have a golden opportunity to witness a living legend – NOT TO BE MISSED!

LA BEAT BESPOKE AND DIRTY WATER CLUB PRESENT: DERV GORDON AND SO WHAT – WEDS 7 NOVEMBER AT NAMBUCCA  –  ADVANCE TICKETS HERE

The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club’s name is derived from The Standells’ 1966 hit ‘Dirty Water’ which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.

THE CONTROL FREAKS: Bay Area Punks Drop “Double Dose Of Hate” – New 7″ Release

Wait,  The Control Freaks are putting out another single? How about that: I am the bearer of good news! Their last single, “I Am Crime”, just came out last month. Next up is Double Dose of Hate, due out November 2. This single literally IS a double dose of hate, as both tracks are odes to…you guessed it…hate!

Who can’t get behind that?! Sherrilynn Nelson (formerly keyboardist for The Omens) loved The Control Freaks so much that she learned guitar just so she could join the band. “Time’s Up” from the last single was her CF songwriting debut. Double Dose of Hate opens with another song she penned called “I Hate Your Face”. That’s a damn fine title, and sure enough, the song lives up to it! I can never get enough of this sort of old-style catchy punk rock, and I really dig the back-and-forth exchange between Nelson and Greg Ripoff.

For a song about hate, those lyrics are surprisingly profound. And about 99 out of 100 humans will fully relate to that line “I’m still in love with you/But I hate your face”. On the flip, “Hatelist” has a nastier edge to it and brings to mind Greg Ripoff’s late, great band Zodiac Killers. This one will have you pumping your fist and shouting along in fervent dedication to everyone who’s ever wronged you or otherwise pissed you off. Those lyrics are so hilariously scathing that I feel Greg is entitled to some sort of literary prize!

When it comes to garage punk in the year 2018, The Control Freaks are showing everyone how it’s done. Double Dose of Hate is their fourth single – and in my opinion their best yet. I say this because of the impossible time I’m having trying to determine which of these two tracks is “the hit”. One song can be played at max volume while you curse the name of significant others past and present. The other will feed your abhorrence for just about everyone else. Arguments over which track is superior could very well lead to drunken fist fights and ruined friendships. Do we really want that? So let’s just call it a tie and agree that a double dose of hate is exactly what this world needs.

Mark Sultan (BBQ) Releases “Let Me Out” – Full Album Stream

Dirty Water Records – Oct 12, 2018 07:11 BST

Mark Sultan

A posted in Alt Citizen

Mark Sultan is clearly a man who likes to take his time. Sultan first got into punk music at only 12, moving on to garage rock at 16. In 1995 he formed the fairly well known Canadian band the Spaceshits and since then he has hopped from cult rock group to cult rock group, occasionally collaborating with the likes of Dan Kroha and Bradford Cox.

STREAM FULL ALBUM HERE

It’s hard to wrap your head around because while you may not necessarily know Mark Sultan by name, you are most certainly familiar with his sound. Which is all to say that by the time you listen to his full album Let Me Outout tomorrow, it will feel a little like coming home after a long trip. That feeling of, oh yes, this is what I was missing.

His album is much like his career. It takes its time. The first track on the album,“Coffin Nails” comes in like a prologue, offering you bits and bites of the garage music that Sultan his built his career on. But it’s his crowning glory of a song,“Everybody Knows” that reveals the underlying talent that we now know Sultan has earned over the course of 20 odd years.

His wailing voice flows with the crashing instrumentals that are his signature sound and from there all cards are on the table. His voice is throaty and loud, just barely carrying over the energy that is apparent on every track of the album.

It makes sense that this album is titled Let Me Out, because every track sounds like it is rushing to be released from some cage in which it has been growing over time. And now it is released, and it is stronger for it.

SUICIDE GENERATION: Fast-Rising Saboteurs of Sleaze Announce Spanish Tour

Dirty Water Records
Time: Oct 19, 2018 19:55 BST – Oct 27, 2018 19:55 BST

Suicide Generation – Spanish Tour

London scuzz-rockers Suicide Generation gear up to unleash their own menacingSpanish Inquisition, kicking off a 9 day Iberian road onslaught from Benidorm to Vigo, starting next week. These fast-rising ‘saboteurs of sleaze’ will also release their upcoming sophomore album Last Suicide which embodies classic-sounds of punk rock ‘n’ roll. But to get an idea of their sound you’re going to need to skip the lighthearted sounds of the Buzzcocks and Sex Pistols for the grimy, gritty punk bred south of the Mason-Dixon line. Think Lost Sounds/Jay Reatard or the Oblivions — snotty vocals, hyper-speed blues riffs, and over-caffeinated drumming.

Ever since Suicide Generation drew their first blood as a band 18 months ago, they have morphed into various incarnations to quickly become an eagerly devoured proposition in the capital’s hi-energy rock ‘n’ roll scene with their chaotic and explosive shows; their attack and intent as unpredictable as their sound.

Filthy lo-fi tracks action-packed with high-powered rock ‘n’ roll numbers like “Rotten Mind” and the hotter and heavier rave-up “You Gonna Burn” layered with rich dirt and grime.

SPANISH TOUR DATES

VIERNES 19, BENIDORM (Tentáculo)

SÁBADO 20, VALENCIA (16 Toneladas)

DOMINGO 21, ALBACETE (La Cachorra yeyé)+ pinchada

MARTES 23, MADRID (Wurlitzer)

MIÉCOLES 24, OVIEDO (La lata de zinc)

JUEVES 25, A CORUÑA (Mardi Gras)

VIERNES 26, PONTEVEDRA (Karma) + Post party en el pequeño Karna

SÁBADO 27, VIGO (La fábrica de chocolate).

After various line-up changes around the core songwriting partnership of lead singer Sebastian Melmoth and guitarist Vince Sooicide, the band recently have completed their latest makeover with the additions of Gema Germen on bass guitar, along with May Mansur on drums, giving the band a boosted sexual re-balance and grounding of their raw and frenetic energy.

Last Suicide by Suicide Generation

Suicide Generation will focus their efforts on the road in support of their latest release in Europe and the US over the next six months. “Last Suicide” is a collection of songs soaked in brashness and swagger turning on ears and an ever keen appetite for unpolished rock ‘n’ roll. Today’s Suicide Generation is here and openly ready to take over the real rock ‘n’ roll world next year.

FEATURE: Greek Art-Punks THE CALLAS Get ‘Under The Influence’

Dirty Water Records – Oct 08, 2018 19:51 BST

The Callas

This news item contains embedded media. Open the news item in your browser to see the content.

As posted in Echoes and Dust

The Callas hail from Athens, Greece where they are the tip of an artistic collective producing music, artworks, films, magazines, events, art shows, initiated by the brothers Lakis & Aris Ionas.

The group has worked with the legendary Lee Ranaldo on the soundtrack of their new feature film “The Great Eastern” and on their new full-length album, “Trouble and Desire” which is due for release on October, 26th 2018 on   Inner Ear and Dirty Water Records .

Much intrigued by all of this, we asked the band to pick the three pieces of music, art & literature that have influenced them most & received some fascinating selections.

 
BOOKS: Gravity’s Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon
 

 “That’s what psyche pop means. It’s like getting into a maze, vivid colors all around, flashes, cartoons, drugs and all kind of weird sex.  It’s not a book, it’s like hearing a new world, it’s an ongoing loose relationship / it’s a virus (in a Burroughsian term) camping, drinking, smoking, singing inside your brain”.

MUSIC: Leningrad Cowboys by Aki Kaurismaki


“That’s the band. That’s rock ‘n’ roll. That’s touring and how depressing and tiring and exciting it is. That’s what “hope” means to every gang dreaming of playing their music, making the girls and the boys cry, drinking till the end of the world. That’s a sign that dark humor can heal our souls.”

 

ART: Fountain by Marcel Duchamp

“That’s what art does to our brains. That’s the grandfather of the Velvets, Wire, Captain Beefheart, The Fall, Teenage Jesus and The Jerks etc. That’s a kick in the ass that makes you wanna go forward, open your mind and blow your certainties.”

Sep 24, 2018 22:22 BST

This song is a perfect example of how Lee Ranaldo and The Callas “speak the same language” (as Lee put it). It’s got elements of ’60s psych, droning but driving jams, and a speak-sung vocal delivery — all elements that you can also hear in Sonic Youth and Lee’s solo material. Check it out below.

THE SCANERS: Synth-Punk Menace Prepare (Third) European Tour Invasion – Festival and Club Dates Announced

BOOKING ENQUIRIES

HAILING from Lyon, France THE SCANERS form a sonic kaleidoscope made up of particles from The RamonesDevoThe Dickies, and The Screamers with essences of others such as Brainiac, Useless Eaters , and Acid Baby Jesus.

Disguised as a raucous band of garage punks, this group of extraterrestrials dropped their debut self-titled LP back in February and have been on the fly ever since; swooping in on every un-spoilt and un-cropped circled hectare of European soil that hasn’t yet witnessed their ultimate abduction of our senses.

You can run, but there’s nowhere to hide from this band’s infectious punk. With drums bouncing along at a breakneck pace and a lobotomized guitar line twitching under the knife, The Scaners get right to work drilling their hooks firmly in your earholes — and rumour has it, they have a new album armed and ready for release next year.

ORDER VINYL

The group will blast off next week on their third European tour this year, hitting the club and festival circuit like a guided missile from unknown corners of the cosmos; like a dance party in Area 51, their rhythmic blast hips to its own sonic infestation of devilry; with vocalist Pav Scaner hot-footing across the strands of temptation like a dervish as the keys of his organ dance as ones ears and appetite are instantly baited and trapped.

Bassist Tama Scaner and drummer BX Scaner fuel their irresistible surge along with the escalated, spatial theremin gas and raw guitar prowess of Dédé Scanergetting under our skins like an infernal but exciting itch which you want to scratch but never lose.

The fusion of sixties, seventies and current punk ‘n’ roll, The Scaners are simply irresistible; manna to the devil in us all, they leave you with the feeling we are not alone.

ORDER CD

The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club’s name is derived from The Standells’ 1966 hit ‘Dirty Water’ which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.

Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, Country Teasers, Black Lips, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers, The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The 5.6.7.8’s, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original ’60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.

Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.

THE DARTS (US): All-Grrrl-Riot-Rock Sensation Hook Up With Punk Legends THE DAMNED on US TOUR

Dirty Water Records – Oct 01, 2018 15:29 BST

The Darts (US) Photo: Kelly Sahr

For the initial new batch of promotional photos for their upcoming nationwide tour supporting The Damned, the four members of  The Darts are all dressed for the kill. The women — singer and keys player Nicole Laurenne, guitarist Meliza Jackson, bassist and singer Christina Nunez and drummer and singer Rikki Styxx — aren’t afraid of having a little fun with their image, to the extent that their chosen band description on their Facebook page reads, “Garage-psych-rock-grrls who will make your head slam and your feet shake. And then there’s the music.”

The band formed in early 2016 and have exploded all over the music scene since being picked up by Dirty Water Records (after their second ever gig!) and show no sign of stopping their takeover of the planet , having quickly become a well-seasoned touring machine with multiple US and European tours already under their belts.

If you want your adrenalin to stream faster, if you want your senses to go bananas, if you want your limbs to move in unknown directions, look no further these outspoken, quick-witted, full-female powerhouse. Their self-titled debut album was an eye-opener, as its thirteen intense songs yielded an experience that can only be described as a mind warp.

Having already built a devoted fan base around the globe, they’ve have recently released their first ever 7″ as a collaboration with Alternative Tentacles Records andDirty Water Records USA. They’ve also just reissue of their twin debut 10″ EP’s; melted in full-bloom on a spectacular slab of of 12″ pink splattered vinyl.

Once upon a time – and not that long ago actually – many within the music industry and even fans held the belief that “girls can’t rock”. The notion that a group of women could unleash explosive rock ‘n roll was unthinkable to many. It has been only a little over forty years since The Runaways changed the music landscape, and in 2018, ‘grrls’ in rock are back blasting up the music scene like never before. These four women are well acquainted with the history of women in rock, and this comes out through their music. Their years of being in different bands mean they are each able to bring something to the table for us to deliciously dine on.

The club has also seen some original ’60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.

Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.

THE CAVEMEN Blitz Nuke Trail Across Europe – Release ‘BURNING’ Hot New Single

Fuelled on a steady diet of beer, fast food and more beer  THE CAVEMEN are currently dragging what remains of their minds and bodies around continental Europe to deliver their rock ‘n’ roll sermon of debauchery to the huddled masses crammed up in every dive bar from Lisbon to Istanbul!

We’ve heard tell of their escapades in Europe: they had standoffs with Italian military over desecrated churches, altercations with Barcelona airport security over contraband tobacco, and very little sleep. We’re talking total annihilation baby. But will this whirlwind tour of the Old World also be the deathblow for the band

Word has it they’re working up a rap sheet of bad behaviour longer than the flight to New Zealand. Will Nick wind up tortured by Turkish mafia thugs over his distaste for local cuisine? Will Jake be forced into a new life as a drug mule in Spain?

Will Paul be jumped on by a pack of Dutch alt-rightwingers in Benelux? Will Jack find himself feeling lost inside the lower echelons of the Reeperbahn?

Or will the whole bunch blow their minds in a frenzy of rock n roll debauchery when they stop by the Dirty Water Club in London to play with fellow antipodeans Radio Birdman? (If they even manage to catch their flight home)

When a group of uni students and other youths form a proto-punk rock band in 1970s Sydney – unwilling to compromise in the desire to create their art – they do more than produce songs; they generate a music scene. It is the influence of that scene, as well as the band’s recordings that change the face of Australian music, even as it exacts a harsh toll at times on the group, a band truly the sum of its parts:RADIO BIRDMAN .

The future is born in 1972 in Sydney, Australia, as med student, DENIZ TEK moves into ‘the cupboard under the stairs’ in a student share-house with the drummer, RON KEELEY. When Deniz is kicked out of his rock band, TV Jones for ‘not being commercial enough’ he combines with the remnants of Keeley’s and singer ROB YOUNGER’s recent band The Rats. With keyboardist PIP HOYLE, and CARL RORKE on bass, they form RADIO BIRDMAN, forever determined to control their art.

Birdman are ‘tasteless and loud’- they are turned off, shut down and booted out of venue after venue. Their determination to do things their own way, against the industry, is unwavering, and they slowly accumulate a gang of incredibly loyal fans.

Progress comes with harsh personal decisions as illustrator WARWICK GILBERTreplaces Carl Rorke ‘for the good of the band’. Months later, 17-year-old prodigy CHRIS MASUAK joins and the ‘twin guitar attack’ rock’n’roll that redefines Australian music is crystallised. The group becomes a family as much as a team. Even if members of a family aren’t always happy with each other…

A new, precarious plateau is reached when The ‘New Race’ of disaffected Birdman fans find a sacred ground to accompany their rallying cause when Birdman solves part of the problem of securing gigs by starting their own Sydney venue, ‘The Funhouse’. Gilbert refines the band’s logo, created by Tek – a bizarre, Bat-Signal like symbol – and creates their unique propaganda-style posters. Radio Birdman’s live Blitzkrieg makes it to vinyl with the DIY release of their records through independent label Trafalgar. Devotion from fans is cult-like. They are doing what they wanted to do in spite of an industry that seems to revile them.

At this artistic peak, they are nonetheless battered by alternate waves of failure and acclaim. They are derided by rival bands for their intense attitude and fascistic imagery, but Ramones US label owner, Seymour Stein signs them on the spot. The intensity that drives Radio Birdman exacerbates the stresses in this art-before- all-else combo, driving wedges between the members, threatening success. A long tour of England accompanied by great personal enmity, squeezed into a ‘Van of Hate’ touring Kombi is a nightmare. They break up.

But they’ve created a scene that now sustains itself without them. Australian music booms; Midnight Oil, Cold Chisel, The Hoodoo Gurus and indie record labels surf the wave Radio Birdman have created.

And there is a surprise resurrection, the metaphorical patient emerges from his coma: In 1996 Birdman are asked to re-form for the Big Day Out festival, and it is an astoundingly, unexpectedly successful rebirth, a vindication of vision. Realising that the intensity still exists, the band opts to continue.

But the next two decades of this now global phenomenon are to be as challenging as the previous ones, despite recognition from the industry that spurned them, including the ARIA Australian Music Hall of Fame. Internal conflicts have not been tamed, and ‘the good of the band’ always supplants the needs of the individual members.

They go on, still far more than the sum of their parts; still RADIO BIRDMAN. As one of the pioneers of the high energy rock ‘n’ roll scene, Radio Birdman will return to Europe with 21 shows in as many days. With three of the six personnel being original members, these shows will be another unique opportunity to catch this legendary Australian underground band whose flame has influenced a multitude of current contenders under the banner of ‘garage rock’.
