David Migden & The Dirty Words’ new album 'Killing It' takes you on a journey through the grinding raw Beefheartien truth of the ‘Blues’, the disturbing world of the ‘Rev Jack Crow’, a killer childhood record player called the ‘Admiral’, to the dirtiest humid funk of the title track, and finally to the ethereal ‘The Line’ that takes you to where the sidewalk ends.
Join them in celebrating the sonic fruit basket of American music and vow to follow them on their musical journey.

Biography

David Migden & The Dirty Words are an exciting electric five piece, performing unique original material in a genre-busting crossover of rock, blues and twisted American roots.
David Migden was raised in Little Rock Arkansas and moved to the UK as a teenager. After playing and touring around London and Europe, initially in the Lee Sankey Group with Matt Schofield and Ian Segal, he started to write his own tunes and released his first album ‘Little Stranger’. He then teamed up with ‘The Dirty Words’ and released ‘Second Hand Tattoo’, as well as featuring on the soundtrack of the ‘Mr Nice’ film about Howard Marks, performing the aptly named ‘Don’t Bogart That Joint’ over the end credits.
Gigs across London and the Southeast followed at venues such as The Jazz Cafe, Dean Street Pizza Express, Ronnie Scott’s, the Borderline, and the American Embassy. The band have played with many other internationally renowned artists including Robert Plant, James Brown, Corinne Bailey Rae, Snowboy, Ian Shaw, Matt Berry, Hamish Stuart (Average White Band), Andy Newmark (Sly & the Family Stone, Roxy Music, John Lennon, Bowie), and have gained a reputation for putting on fantastic shows that focus on David’s incredible songs.
David Migden & The Dirty Words are now releasing their eagerly awaited second album ‘Killing It’ which promises to be their best so far, and this band’s best will be something to behold.
