Here’s the second (and last) of our guest blogs from acts performing at our “Before The Gold Rush: Under the Influence” special this friday, 29th Aug, at the Sebright Arms. Here Suburban Dirts tell us a bit about their influences…
“Suburban Dirts are a Hertfordshire based six piece band of musicians that has been gathering speed and momentum since early 2011. We now find ourselves making preparations to record our third album, which – we are super excited to announce – will be recorded at Reservoir studios and produced by Danny & the champions of the world’s Danny Wilson & Chris Clarke.
Our influences range from the likes of Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, The Beatles and old soul & doo wop records right up to more recent acts such as Ryan Adams, Ray Lamontagne and Justin Townes Earle but none are more present in our sound than Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Robbie Robertson, Garth Hudson and Richard Manuel; The Band.
The last waltz is more important to us than god so we thought we’d take the opportunity of a Before the gold rush / Under the influence night to play a tribute to the band and the movie.
Which is perfect because we fucking love playing those songs.”
