Never miss another 'The Dirty Three' show
The Dirty Three + Zun Zun Egui
The legendary instrumental trio Dirty Three boldly break cover in 2012 with a remarkable new album, "Toward The Low Sun", on Bella Union records, plus an intensive live schedule of headline shows and festival appearances.
"Toward the Low Sun" is a cacophonyic explosion of influences and attitude that has the energy and urgency of a first release. There is an energy and a raw excitement evident from the first electrifying opening moments through to the album's finale.
This event takes place at The Sage Gateshead, which has achieved Gold Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Atmospheric, haunting melodies from this Australian group. Hailed as the finest Antipodean three-piece since The Dead C and having toured globally with acts as diverse as Nick Cave, the Beastie Boys, John Cale, Pavement and Henry Rollins, the Dirty Three are viewed as 'exceptional in many respects. An instrumental, violin-led trio who are lauded by the music intelligentsia but who embody the primitive appeal of rock'n'roll unlike any other' BELLAUNION.com
The Dirty Three tour dates
Four-piece from Bristol via Mauritius and Japan. A weird product of Fela Kuti-inspired eternal groove, straight-edge underground rock precision and dynamics, East African guitar practice, Mauritian Rum, Zappa-like big band subversions and a host of other 21st century culture hybrid-jamming.
