Biography

The Dirty Valentines are:

Bev King - Drums

Colin McCann - Bass

Liam Murphy - Guitar & Vocals

Having formed together in 2010 through necessity with regards the blandness and pretentiousness of polished modern music today, this Dublin/Wicklow 3 piece have amassed a whirlwind of hype in their native towns and also on the Dublin gig circuit.

Created as a direct reaction towards the networking ‘clique’ element of the Irish music scene, they are destined to a fate of adversity before triumph. Their music has raw and ballsy rock, grunge, blues and funk elements, Pollocked with a dose of punk sensibility and lyrics about she-males down in New Orleans, vanilla thighs, pink cadillacs, prescription drugs, liquor, Bettie Page, smiling lions, silver tongues, indigo lips and economic bomb scares.

Their live shows have been described as juggernaut sessions without the posturing or smiling or fakery. Instead, just good, honest dirty music about the finer things in life. An ever expanding fan base and also celebrity support from the likes of Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic and Lucid Nation’s Tamra Spivey has etched the groups name into the minds of the youth of Dublin and Wicklow.

2011 currently sees the band in JMR Studios, cutting their first EP : ’21st Century Dandies’.

The future is both bright and pink for The Dirty Valentines…
