Introducing - Dirty Saint
The antipodean Mancunians Dirty Saint impress us with their classic rock sounds!
Every week a new band pops up and often the word new isn’t really applicable. This is certainly the case with Dirty Saint who have been around for a while with an antipodean past and a Mancunian future.
They are rock’n’roll! A classic rock sound with a dash of indie for good measure. Listening to their album, Professional Beggar, songs like NYC Queen and the gritty rock’n’roll boogie of Time Of Your Life to the straight ahead heavy rock of Devil. They balance things out with Northern Soul which although slower has a big sound, a sound that has been clearly influenced by their worldwide journey.
The band were started in New Zealand by Manchester born singer Dave Gale and New Zealander Tom Garcia on guitar subsequently adding Ste Pearce on bass and Pete Toner on drums. They have now settled on Manchester as their home, not unreasonably!
Here at MR we are intrigued by their history of international Police arrests and nervous breakdowns so we will be aiming to interview them at some point in the future.
With a mature sound like theirs, the future is bright for Dirty Saint.
