Biography

Keepin' the rock 'n' roll fires burnin' is thirsty work, so in these times
of great drought where even a drop of musical sewerage is fought over and
lapped up as if it is the very nectar of life itself, it is from the heavens
that we have been sent a life giving monsoon. And that, brothers and sisters
is Dresden. Raining down on us like carpet-bombs, blowing away the stagnant present with a six string razored attack and panzer division drums, they wash the tuneless mud from our feet down the gutter of banality. Breast fed by the Stooges, nurtured by Sonic Youth and finally educated in the ways of this wicked but beautiful world by their fathers the MC5, Dresden don't look for answers, they look for questions. The first of these questions was delivered in early February 2006 with the release of debut single “Save my Soul” on cd and 10” vinyl.

The band have made two appearances at Alan McGee’s Death Disco club night in London. The former has also championed Dresden on his radio 1 slot and the band recently performed a 6 song live session on Billy Sloan’s Clyde 1 show (Jan 29th). Vic Galloway (radio 1/radio Scotland) and Jim Gellatly (XFM Scotland) have also contributed in abundance to the assault on the airwaves.

In the last 18 months Dresden have supported the likes of Wolfmother, The View, Mando Diao and The Fratellis.

Lyrics

Save my soul

Written By: Robert Mcgovern

Got a hot wire running straight to my brain. I'm a time bomb ticking pavement hurricane. A car crash baby won't you cut me free. A train wreck no one puts the brakes on me.

I got to breath in just to breath out.

A blow torch in bondage spitting gasoline. A flick knife honey with a hunger obscene. I steal what I want and I lust with a pain. So if you give me your love I'll drive you insain.

I need someone to save my soul. Won't you please come and save my soul. I need someone to save my soul, save my soul, save my soul.

I'm pistol whip crazy and I'm low life mean. Dark flowers grow from my bitter seeds. I burn like the sun I'm the sun of a gun. I hurt who I want and I hate everyone.

I'm bursting my veins when I scream and shout.
