Editors’ Notes

The Dirty Streets have listened to their Grand Funk Railroad albums. Or perhaps it's Humble Pie. Terry Reid? Bobby Whitlock? Whatever The Dirty Streets heard while living in Mississippi and on their way to Memphis has clearly informed the way the trio decided to make records. For Blades of Grass, The Dirty Streets went to work at the legendary Ardent Studios with a subtlety that's often deliberately missing in the works of bands (like Wolfmother) that emulate Black Sabbath. The Dirty Streets are unashamed to boogie or to play down their roots-rock angle. If songs such as "No Need to Rest," "Try Harder," and the title track recall Black Oak Arkansas in some way, that's just fine by them. Justin Toland sings as if bare-chested rock 'n' rollers are back in style, with a bluesy, soulful yawp. Perhaps fans of late-'60s and early-'70s hard rock will find The Dirty Streets; this power trio could make a serious impression in 2013, when so many other groups have wandered off with synthesizers and sound loops. There's room for everyone.

Customer Reviews

Dirty Streets Rock!

I saw this band open for Radio Moscow last year and I was very impressed. I had never heard of Dirty Streets before and had no expectations. They only played about a four song, maybe 20 minute set, but they blew me away and left me wanting more! I downloaded their album Movements and dug their sound a lot, very raw, but you could feel the passion and energy in what they were doing. This new album is pretty much more of the same, but with tighter instrumentation and way fuller sounding production. All three guys in this band seem to be getting better and better. Me being a huge fan of 70's rock, this band is right up my alley. I love seeing some of these young bands helping to keep rock alive! Keep doing what you're doing, Dirty Streets, there are too few bands like you out there these days!

Rock Perfection

My ears are having a sexual experience right now.


These guys are great. Great debut album. Definitely keep an eye on these guys.


Formed: 2006 in Memphis, TN

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Hailing from Memphis, TN, the Dirty Streets are a throwback to the good old days of soulful blues/boogie rock. Formed in 2006, Justin Toland (guitar/vocals), Thomas Storz (bass), and Andrew Denham (drums) found themselves brought together by a shared love of classic acts like Led Zeppelin, Humble Pie, and Cream. Together, the trio makes a kind of revivalist rock that feels retro without seeming fake, adding enough of their own sweat and soul into their smoky blues to make the music seem genuine....
