Sometimes I’m led to a band because of the band name, something about the name Them Dirtbags made me want to give them a listen. Reminded me of The Cramps and that’s about enough to get me started. There are quite a few of us here at 50thirdand3rd that like it primitive and raw. So here comes some cool garage punk for all you fans of GaragePunk Hideout.

Gun Club, The Cramps, Beefheart, The Sonics, The Stooges, MC5, NewYorkDolls, The Heartbreakers, The Ramones, Televison, The Jesus and Marychain, The Clash, Bo Diddley, Bad Seeds, The Gories, The Flamin Grooves,

Our name is…..

Them Dirtbags

We are…..

Uncle STEvil Dirtbag (vocals,harmonica,fuzz guitar) Dan Mosquito Dirtbag(Guitar wizard, backing vocals) Kenyon Dog Dirtbag(Bassman) JohnDrummer Dirtbag(drum smasher)

Our sound would be best described as…..

Raw, Primative garage Rock&Roll, Punk Blues

We are originally from…..

The Southcoast of England

The first time we meet was….

Around 2002

We knew we were going to be a band when…..

Dan&Stevil began writing music and lyrics together in a small box room. After a heavy night of drinking we realised with Bass and Drums this could become something very cool. Things began to fall into place and Them Dirtbags were created.

Before starting the band we were……

Toy maker, bar worker, council worker, unemployed alcoholic

The first song we wrote was…..

Her Name (cocaine Jane)

It’s about…..

It’s a dark song about narcotic addiction and self loathing.
