15.5 THE LONDON DIRTHOLE COMPANY @ Monarch

Monarch
Skalitzer Strasse 134 (Eingang Stahltür gegenüber Döner-Laden), Am Kotti, 10999 Berlin

The music made by THE LONDON DIRTHOLE COMPANY is a rollercoaster ride into the world of the modern outsider art as a musical phenomenom. As out of time and place and unreservedly important as The Fall, The Stingrays, Pussy Galore, The Monks and The Velvet Underground. THE LONDON DIRTHOLE COMPANY forge an uptempo, thundering garage pop hybrid that is inexplicably brutal yet sensitive.

The drama is played out by a forever changing line-up onstage and in the studio, keeping everything vibrant and upbeat. THE LONDON DIRTHOLE COMPANY is an utterly engrossing group of individual personalities that perform with up to 4 drummers, 4 guitarists, bass and occasional sax backing the vocals. A trimmed down line-up will be the more regular touring set-up for obvious practical reasons.

Their magical weaving of classic tunes with this radically fresh approach has earned them respect from peers and punters alike in their London stomping grounds, with a dynamic live show offering relentless entertainment as they switch singers like an old music hall act. Their outsider credentials are further scorched in their ongoing collaborations with Sexton Ming, members of Thee Head- coatees and Armitage Shanks.
