The Dirty Shames

The Dirty Shames

 New York City, New York, USA

We have been described as a cross between The Ramones and early Rolling Stones. Our influences include the raw and primitive sounds of bands like The Stooges, The Sonics, DMZ, The Ramones, The Heartbreakers, The Zeros, and The Real Kids.


Since performing their first show in Dec. 2008 The Dirty Shames have managed to stir up quite a buzz in and around New York City. Their frequent live appearances have helped build a following that transcends boundaries and brings people from varying scenes together for the love of rock n' roll.
Ably supported by Matt Marando on bass guitar and Seanzie on drums founding members Nathan LaChance (guitar) and Lisa Lush (vocals) bring together a sound that is deeply rooted in rock and roll yet uniquely their own.
The Dirty Shames were recently featured on Genya Raven’s Sirius Radio show, Goldie's Garage, as well as being interviewed and performing live in studio on the B-sides Radio show (91.5 FM) New York. Their self titled CD is currently up for review for airplay on Little Steven's Underground Garage.
