New Single From The Dirty Nil

New From The Dirty Nil

We’ve long championed the raucous, incendiary garage-punk of the Dirty Nil and it is good to see them back with a new single on Dine Alone Records and with plans for a debut album early next year.

Out on the 6th November, the single, No Weaknesses backed with Provisional, features the double edge sword of breakneck violent fuzz and pure anthemic catharsis; a combination of unhinged punk rock noise and stick-in-your-head pop melodies. The b-side takes a classic Fugazi cut and amplifies the blistering rage.

Listen.

Having already posted Cinnamon, the lead track from the Dirty Nil’s latest single, we now have the B side for your aural delight. Check out the equally raw and bruising Guided By Vices.

Visit their Bandcamp page here, or order the vinyl from Fat Wreck Records here.

The Dirty Nil are back with another cracking single of noisy, feral garage punk.

Cinnamon b/w Guided by Vices is out August 19th on Fat Wreck Chords. Check out two pummelling minutes of the lead track below.

New EP From The Dirty Nil

As we’re away for a few days we have scheduled a few posts to highlight some excellent stuff that has come our way, but which we haven’t had the time to do justice too in words!

The Dirty Nil’s particular brand of feral, sordid, drunken, and distorted rock’n’roll focuses on the important things in life: booze, dope, girls, and parties. Safe to say, it has endeared the Canadian three-piece greatly to MM and ensured they have featured pretty regularly on the blog.

Their latest EP Smite will be released on the 18th February, and we thoroughly recommend you check out lead track Wrestle Yü To Hüsker Dü and give yourself an adrenaline fuelled shot of pure sleaze…

The Dirty Nil - Free Covers EP

There is no band out there that writes a better covering e-mail than The Dirty Nil. Each time we’ve posted about them on MM we’ve just nicked the words they’ve sent us because, well because they are so spot on.

They now have a new Summer Mixtape out, Volume Two is all covers featuring songs by The Misfits, Iggy Pop, Guided By Voices, and Merle Haggard, which is a pretty good selection in our book. It is completely free to download too.

So not wanting to break with tradition, here is what they say about it,

The Dirty Nil deserve to die because we’re too drunk, we’re out of catchy nicknames for Kyle, nobody wants to hear our experimental prog phase, too beautiful to live, Luke wore the same shirt for two years straight, we’re basically just a wedding cover band now, we hate everybody, because we slept with your sister, the Replacements are back together so nobody needs another band of drunk assholes, blood sacrifice, and so no one ever sees Dave without his mustache.

Listen to “Summer Mix-Tape Vol. 2: Covers” at a motherfucking loud volume. Free until the summer ends. Then it goes away forever!”

Perfect. As usual, we couldn’t have put it better ourselves.

Download it from their Bandcamp here. Watch their new video for Zombie Eyed here and have a listen to a whole new take on Merle’s Mama Tried.

The Dirty Nil Are Back

The Dirty Nil are back!

This time it’s a split vinyl with their friends Northern Primitive released by Indoor Shoes.

They sent some basic participation instructions:

Listen to Zombie Eyed at a motherfucking loud volume.”

We suggest you do as they say…

It is free for one month via their Bandcamp page or better still go there and order the vinyl.
