The Dirtbombs, who will always be cooler than any band you have formed, or might form, have announced a tour in support of their most recent album on In The Red, Party Store — a concept album where they cover classic Detroit techno music and attempt to make it cool, which is hard to do, as you can see in our review.
The new album, which does have its flaws, is still made by a band (with one of the best frontmen ever in Mick Collins) that is totally way cooler and much more entertaining that any band you are a part of. Yes, I know about your new violin and synthesizer project and I know that you’re trying to get a band that sounds “like Joy Division but poppier” together, but just trust me, The Dirtbombs are cooler than anything you will ever do, band-wise, and they’re cooler than most things you listen to, so just start listening to them more. Please?
