The Dirt Daubers announce UK/European tour…

We recently reviewed Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers, in fact they were so darn good we reviewed them twice as they raised hell in Liverpool and Brighton.

So when we heard that Shack Shakers front-man Col JD Wilkes had a second band we were excited, but when we heard that they are set to tour the UK we hollered halleluiah and in true JD style spat in our own faces!!

The Dirt Daubers are a three piece who sing loud-and-proud; an eclectic mix of Appalachian, ragtime, scorching hot jazz standards and original music. From cowboy songs to bluegrass, Harlem jazz to honky tonk, the Daubers tackle it all with vim, verve and vigour.

Back in 2009 their eponymous album was given a limited release in the US; however this was given a full European release in February 2012 when the band inked a deal with Proper Records. To promote the album they have now released a single ”ËœWake Up, Sinners’ and announced a full UK/European tour.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
