Dirt River Radio (aka The Dirties) are a 6 piece band from Melbourne Australia known for heartfelt Australian rock ballads cranked with Rock-a-Billy swagger, Gypsy Romps, Celtic sea shanties and smoldering dirty Soul.
With a line-up of two guitars, bass, drums and the magnificent `Dirtettes’ on backing vocals, The Dirties have evolved from humble St Kilda beginnings into a world travelling rock n roll outfit.
Founding members and main stays Alex Raunjak (Electric Mary/Bugdust) and Heath Brady (Couchgrinder) have been reunited with bass player extraordinaire Ant Casey (Tenpenny Joke) alongside `The Dirtettes’ on backing vocals (Kelly Fernando-Bird and Sarah Fagan) and drumming duties delivered by Matt Bray (Jericco/K-Oscillate/28-Days).
Third album “Sun City White” is set for release in April 2017 with a raft of new songs exploring issues spanning personal demons to the plight of humanity.
A classic Dirt River Radio sound that delivers a swag of heartfelt tunes and at times brutal snapshots of reality.
