I didn’t think I’d ever get a chance to see this lot, at least not in Newcastle. The Dirtbombs were the first band I ever saw at the Cluny donkey’s years ago and pre-gentrification of the Ouseburn back when it had the lovely scummy charm.
I think my ears are still ruined from that evening. Utterly worth it to see Mick Collins and co in action. Here he returns with his other band, they paved the way for a lot of the acts in the Detroit scene, so it’s a privilege to have them in our hometown!
