Bio: The Dirty Streets are a young band from Memphis who have no fear of bathing in their proto-punk and soul roots. Their album Portrait of a Man is an obvious product of digging on the likes of the MC5, Rolling Stones, James Brown, Cactus, Humble Pie and the Faces.
“Memphis’ The Dirty Streets unearth a lost nugget from the heyday of straight-up rock…their own. Their full-length Movements, both a love letter to and from the days of swagger and bluster blues rock, replenishes some shelves that often get left bare. If you’re hankering for that warm bravado and thump of strides left by cats like The Faces or Humble Pie channeled through modern speakers, this might be your ticket.”
