The Dirty Nil - Master Volume LP
This record was shipped to the Get-Punk Record Club in January 2021. It's the featured record of the month for February 2021. What does that mean? Nothing except I highly recommend it. Some people don't want to join the record club and receive a record blind. Well, now you know what it is and I grabbed some extras for everyone.
If you've walked within 5 feet of me since 2018 then you've had to listen to me talk about this band. Forget the press sheet, I'll write it myself.
The Dirty Nil are a 3 piece rock band from Canada. I'm a child of Guns N' Roses and Nirvana. If The Dirty Nil existed in 1991 they would be as famous as those bands. Don't believe me? Hear them.
They released a collection of singles on Fat Wreck but otherwise The Dirty Nil are released by a Canadian label. It's really hard to find their albums in the US at affordable prices and I finally figured out why: US distributors pay Canadian dollars for these records and then charge us as if they were US dollars. Seriously. That's what kept their album Master Volume away from the Record Club for 2 and a half years. But got bless Dine Alone Records; they're selling to me directly now so we can all enjoy the Nil at reasonable prices in the US.
Master Volume is one of my favorite albums. You're not gonna find a record that comes out of the gate harder and hooks you faster. Before you know it, side 1 is over. You'll probably want to hear that again before flipping it over. This band is incredible.
