James McCann’s Dirty Skirt Band- Bound For The Blues LP. Based in Melbourne, the Dirty Skirt Band is lead by, James McCann, one of the founding members of the australian well-known exports: the Drones. James McCann whips music like the dog it is, forces it to submit, and makes it do his bidding. With songs wrapped around his little finger and trapped under his thumb he manages to both scream bloody murder and break hearts in the same song. “Bound For The Blues” is the fourth James McCann’s album and it’s his rawest and loudest album yet. The nine tracks are simply pure golden pearls of perfect songwriting that sometimes remind me of The Drones, The Scientists and The Stooges. The songs are all intense and even the coolest ballads explode into the most sonic and wildest fuzzy wha-wha swamp rock you’ve ever heard. This is a true masterpiece.
