It’s a warm welcome back to Tony Mitchell, fondly remembered by this scribe for fronting the 1990s Lancastrian minnows Kiss Of The Gypsy. Mitchell went on to pursue a tougher direction, but on Down And Dirty, he returns to his roots with Dirty White Boyz, a band that boast a cracking line-up and who have delivered an impressive set of memorable and hummable hard rock tunes.

Dave Ling was a co-founder of Classic Rock magazine. His words have appeared in a variety of music publications, including RAW, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Prog, Rock Candy, Fireworks and Sounds. Dave’s life was shaped in 1974 through the purchase of a copy of Sweet’s album ‘Sweet Fanny Adams’, along with early gig experiences from Status Quo, Rush, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Yes and Queen. As a lifelong season ticket holder of Crystal Palace FC, he is completely incapable of uttering the word ‘Br***ton’.
