Album Notes
Playing in a band kicks ass. Writing songs for a band is pretty sweet too, but sometimes you write a song that just doesn't work out in a full-blown band. So when most of their band mates in BluesMotel were on vacation, Kevin de Harde and Micha Sprenger, responsible for writing almost every song for the band, decided to write some songs for something new. That's how The Damned and Dirty was born.

After a couple of weeks of writing they were ready. On August 1st they joined engineers Erwin Palper and Frank de Jong at 20Twelve Audio to start recording. Frank van TIjn, BluesMotel's drummer joined them for a couple of songs. Two days of studio time later they had recorded 13 songs. On of these was written for them by their good friend Eddy Gartry (of Blues State 'UK' fame).

The 13 tracks are all acoustic, only some of them having a touch of drums and/or bass. Gritty delta blues with screaming slide guitar, beautiful ballads, uptempo fun, The Damned and Dirty have tried to incorporate multiple styles into this album.
