Dirti Speshuls release huge debut CD “Long Time Coming”

E-mail Print

 Lethbridge rock band the Dirti Speshuls have released their huge new debut CD,“ Long Time Coming.”

It is huge sounding in every way from the first chord of the first song “Gotta Go.”

They sound like ’90s rockers Treble Charger jamming with Queens of the Stone Age in an ’80s studio run by Bob Rock. They sound like they stepped right out of the late ’90s while sidestepping the whole grunge craze.Click Here to hear the Dirtis Speshuls

Everything about it is  big— it has a a huge sound, big guitars, big choruses, big everything except the length as it is only eight songs long.

 They are all good though. ‘Gotta Go” Crazy Rocky” and “Come on Kid” all stand out.
they slow down slightly in the middle of the CD but pick up the tempo again onOut on your own, which has more of a modern rock feel.

The three guitarists Rob Cooper, John Brooks and Jon Vornbrock each have their own distinct sounds yet still provide a  big wall of sound. Drummer Dean Wilson and bassist Rick Beres play in the pocket in an unstoppable rhythm and Todd Carter, a veteran of the Lethbridge music scene, has a distinctive voice. The other band members  also harmonize nicely.
 They end on  a high note “Never the Same,” which shows off the guitars and the vocal harmonies.
“Long Time Coming” is a rock solid listen for those who want to move, groove and maybe even dance.
