Liverpool Duo Dirtblonde Bringing The Noise to SXSW

Yeah, well so it’s a repost? I don’t want to challenge the Big G.. but I have to post this one out for the benefit of mr. kite.. :) or the SXSW followers.

SO, the article title goes “Liverpool Duo Dirtblonde Bringing The Noise to SXSW”… Yeah, that’s from Liverpool! The “Holy Land”

South by Southwest news is usually pretty hard to come by until the festival draws closer, but this year some tasty tidbits are leaking out early. Such as the announcement that Liverpool noise punks Dirtblonde have been selected to showcase at SXSW 2009.

The two piece plays a raucous brand of lo-fi punk and  spankwire that has been called less Jack and Meg and more Sid and Nancy. Gibson recently ran a feature on Dirtblonde, who appear to be causing quite the stir in their hometown. “This boy and girl duo makes an uncompromising noise and plays chaotic gigs which often end with broken guitars, bruises, and blood,” according to Gibson.

The video for Dirtblonde’s The Hangmen is below for your viewing pleasure. Official SXSW showcase times and locations have yet to be announced, but stay tuned to Austin Sound Check for all the latest on SXSW.

This SXSW even will surely be a big deal!
