Dirty Three

All posts tagged Dirty Three


Dirty Three’s self titled debut, released in 1994, is another record that makes me want to kick myself for not listening to it earlier…twenty years earlier. There are many opinions on what constitutes Post-Rock music (my opinion is that it is free-form instrumental rock), but sometimes it is characterized as Classical music performed with Rock instruments. In the case of Dirty Three we are treated to Classical instruments being used to create sounds much like present day guitars. This 1994 release remains as fresh as if it were released today. It’s an interesting LP and full of surprises. ((Illustration by Rob Fred Parker)) ((YouTube video presented by garagancolos))
