Dukes Of Bordello - Lowdown ’N’ Dirty album review

The best Sleaze you can get this month

Cover art for Dukes Of Bordello - Lowdown ’N’ Dirty album

With their thumping stand-up bass, swashbuckling guitar riffs and affection for Wildhearts-y, caffeine-bomb hooks, these noble Dukes deliver a tight array of greasy, knuckle-tattooed, all-hands-on-deck rock’n’roll that feels warm, familiar and intoxicating, like a half-empty bottle of wine you find under your bed after a lost weekend.

Came from the sky like a 747. Classic Rock’s least-reputable byline-grabber since 2003. Several decades deep into the music industry. Got fired from an early incarnation of Anal C**t after one show. 30 years later, got fired from the New York Times after one week. Likes rock and hates everything else. Still believes in Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction, against all better judgment.
