Single Review: Dirtblonde – The Hangmen

There’s a noise a-happening. If you don’t like your PR completely ridden with dated rock -‘n roll cliches then is most certainly NOT worth a look and anyone who calls themselves Ivan Hell is suspect in my book but the band’s self-funded release “The Hangmen” is a superb bit of paranoid art-rock fuzz that realises the potential shown in their scatty early demo’s. There’s an entire soap opera behind this release (“the [record company] boss had a car crash, lost his car and almost died and ever since he’s been all weird and pissy” Ivan.), culminating in a very unamicable record label split, followed by a tour of Brazil (like you do). This single is wonderfully produced, raw, energetic and promises hangmen at your door coming to get you. Shades of Jesus & Mary Chain, early Nirvana, Mclusky.

Dirtblonde (but my god it’s a shite name, isn’t it? There’s no getting away from that) play the Dublin Castle, Camden, June 5th.
