I’ve been meaning to write something suitably effusive on grubby Ontario trio The Dirty Nil for quite some while now and even though they don’t quite make my top three for dirty somethings (that’ll be the ‘Projectors, the ‘Three, and the ‘Beaches in that very particular order) their latest, Zombie Eyed, is well worth a listen in on. Well, I say that, even though it’s one to keep a safe distance from at all times as all squalid distortions and rambunctious drums, it sounds akin to Pinkerton regurgitated – gristle ‘n’ all – by a nauseous Boss MD-2. A giddy thriller that’s as ruinous as it is revitalising, get down and dirty posthaste.
