Hi!… we’re Dirty Power… a hard-rock trio, inspired by life (and stuff 👍), formed by Brendan (Guitar & Vocals) in London (UK) sometime around 2013… Now based in Dublin (IRL).
Influenced by gloriously timeless ‘legacy acts’ seen at big festivals across Europe (we do like a good mosh pit), as well as the independent, artistically punk, D.I.Y. approach of many of these bands’ origins, the first step was to bring together some of the best rocking buddies / musicians in the London scene (now coming together from all over Europe). The next step was to make the music that we wanted to hear more of in the world, and to play it “not badly”… That took a while… We’re still working on it… If anyone else likes it, that’s kind of a bonus. Those early days saw immediate responses from audiences, venues and established acts, who all leant a hand in getting Dirty Power on its feet… so… cool! Fanx y’all. x
The band’s more obvious musical influences include alternative, punk, metal and hard rock. Much of the Dirty Power sound is built on Rage Against The Machine foundations, layered with Nirvana arrangements, and topped with progressive instrumental sections… There’s more to it than that… (like the iambic pentameter rhythmic derivatives, the psycho-mythological treble-entendre lyrics and the ritualistic, simple-pleasures, beer-tent foot-stomping colloquial heartbeat, contrasting with the cosmic profundity of the whole affair)… but you get the picture… ‘Fist-pumping, cathartic, mosh-pit-rock for the mind’, might be one way to describe it… ‘Heavy rock riffs, big grooves, with tricky solos and sing-along choruses’ might be another… In any case, we dig it and hope you do too. The latest releases can always be found at www.dirty-power.com/media.
Dirty Power is driven by an independent D.I.Y. punk ethic, in everything from the writing and recording process, to the approach in performing and touring. That basically means we stick to doing what we really want to do most, doing them our way. Sinatra would be proud. (Click here if you’re confused… Then click here if you’d like to be confused again). Dirty Power is also an evolving collective of musicians, so the lineup of of the band changes from time to time, depending on the way we wanna do things.
Tours, videos and recordings are happening. Many have already happened, with more to come. To follow the story, join the mailing list for free (bottom of that page), because we prefer to do things without middlemen as much as possible. This way you get our stuff directly, sent to your inbox.
