DIRTY REVOLUTION play a fierce brand of roots rock that goes beyond the standard “ska/punk” definitions. The Cardiff based 5 piece have been bringing their own unique sound-clash to UK venues tirelessly since 2007 and have a firm grip on the burgeoning underground punk/ska/reggae mash up scene.
After releasing E.P "It's gonna get Dirty" on Do The Dog records they recorded their debut album "Before The Fire" with Peter Miles (King Blues, SB6, Random hand, The Skints) which was released as a limited edition by Rebel Alliance Recordings. The full edition is out now and available to buy on the bands own label,Dirty World Records.“
Dirty Revolution have produced an album which shines brightly amongst the current top quality uk ska/reggae/punk scene…Reb’s vocals are a force to be reckoned with, and when backed by a fierce rhythm section, skanking guitar waves and a crystal clear production, its a combination which is electrifying from the perfectly pitched anti-racist story of I Love Reggae through to the hilarious and astute comment on gangsta rappers 50p. Fuelled by a vivid, heartfelt passion, Before the Fire is an angry album somehow full of love
