Filthy Still / Bio

Folk-punk-bluegrass with a dash of classic rock that'll leave you feeling like you've danced a jig, reveled into that good night, and been knocked in the head with a hammer--that's Filthy Still. With two albums under their belt ('All Bottled Up' & 'The Last Six Feet'), they've been touring hard and nearly non-stop since coming together in June, 2010, in Providence, Rhode Island. Filthy Still was formed in that city's historic Federal Hill neighborhood and the original band members were Jesse Roderick (vocals/guitar), Matt Olson (lead guitar/banjo), Jeremy Garland (drums), and Dylan "Sleazy D" Wolk (washboard, back-up screams), who has since left this mortal coil, and is sorely missed. In addition to Roderick, Olson and Garland, the band grew this year to include Jared McGovern on stand-up bass and Liz Sloan on the fiddle. These two major talents, who also record and tour with Jayke Orvis and the Broken Band, bring new depth to Filthy Still's sound and collective talent. As for the original three members, Roderick beats you over the head with aggression and vocals that come from deep down; Olson plays multiple instruments with precision and speed, plus has a unique, high-toned singing voice that compliments Roderick's throaty delivery; and Garland keeps’em all together with his percussion work that's nice, steady and singed with punk rock grit and grime. See them on the Filthy Still 2013 Winter Tour, underway beginning in January and lasting into March—at least. Order their albums at FarmageddonRecords.com OR FilthyStill.com. And buy’em a beer…just because.
