Dirty 30s

Dirty 30s

BandRockAmericana

successfully resurrected the soulful yet gritty sound of alt-country However, music stands out as slightly more straight-up rock than country, but an all-original sound, If you are a fan of Rev. Horton Heat, Mojo Nixon, Bob Dylan, Neil Young or just good old rock-n-roll this IS the band for you.

Biography

Dirty 30s were born when Jason Riley and Brian Heuring began writing catchy tunes on a four track. Within a few months the Rolex timing of Stu Faris and the thundering bass licks of Jeb Venable were thrown into the mix and the results are southern fried rock n roll.

Raised in Cape Girardeau, banging out there unique brand of roots/rock, the Dirty 30s are a show to watch, It is evident that this band is working on what they want to do, and they are doing it pretty well. I'd hate to slap a 'what they sound like' label on them at all because I think they have something for everyone. If you are a fan of Rev. Horton Heat, Mojo Nixon, Bob Dylan, Neil Young or just good old rock-n-roll this IS the band for you. When this band comes around be sure to catch them live for an excellent show. Then you too can see that The Dirty 30s have a style all their own.
A new album, produced and recorded in Brooklyn, NY by Eric "Roscoe" Ambel, will be released this year. Ambel is best known for his work with The Bottle Rockets, Ryan Adams, and Steve Earle.

Lyrics

Rode Hard

Written By: Dirty 30s

hot night on the 4th of june.
I pulled my diesel in to get some fuel.
thats when I saw her standing there.
Started talking and shes talking back,
said honey hop up in my cab.
Id like to waste some time with you,

said baby how much you want to spend,
ah honey that all depends,
Rode Hard and put up wet.
but all I got is twenty bucks
is that enough to get you in my truck
Rode Hard and put up wet.

It was all moving really fast,
It was close, but no romance.
she pulled off my pants and left on my shoes.
The girl was smart she knew what to do,
she took my money and then she flew.
Diesel Donna, what else can you do?

said baby how much you want to spend,
ah honey that all depends,
Rode Hard and put up wet.
but all I got is twenty bucks
is that enough to get you in my truck
Rode Hard and put up wet.

My life has all ways been,
hammer lane driving,
songs about the working poor.

said baby how much you want to spend,
ah honey that all depends,
Rode Hard and put up wet.
but all I got is twenty bucks
is that enough to get you in my truck
Rode Hard and put up wet.

Written By: Dirty 30s

The dam breaks at the rivers bend.
and takes everything and washes in.
itll knock you down on your knees.
baby wont you come and take a walk with me.

Listen to the sound of the rain.
rivers getting high like tidal wave.
sheriff dont come around here, in the swamp.
its constant fear and breaking laws.

down in the dirt and Mississippi mud,
a man got stabed and spilled his blood.
aint gonna work in the factory.
rather play music than have shoes on my feet.

I aint lying about what I say.
this here town aint a bad place.
you get a house, and get a dog,
choping up kenlin after you gig a frog.
