Album Review

Dirty Filthy Mugs' second full-length is a fun, rousing punk explosion. Hints of Rancid, Dropkick Murphys, and Motörhead pepper Up in the Downs. Like so many punk bands, the subject matter veers to crazy relationships, con men, and being "Blocked Up and Smashed." Guitars are distorted and raging but with an ear to catchy hooks. Conk! absolutely destroys his drums. The playing is tight and the musicianship smart. The flamenco and accordion solo flourishes on "Outcast" change things up and paint a picture of the group's eclectic influences. Matt Wedgley hoarsely shouts about society's ills, fake plastic cities, and just getting by in life. Up in the Downs is street punk done right, with heart, passion, and a throbbing pulse.

Customer Reviews


This is the band that re-ignited my love for Punk music! I was hooked on Dirty Filthy Mugs when I happened to see them at a small club in Long Beach a couple of years ago. This is the Mugs' second album and in my opinion, it is their best by far (and that's quite an achievement considering I thought the first one was the best album I'd heard in many, many years!). The songs on 'Up in the Downs' are eclectic, dynamic and more powerful than ANY Punk band has managed in recent memory. This is a 'must have' for any fan of honest, heavy, melodic music of any genre!
