Dirty Loveguns = AC/DC + Motley Crue + Warrant
You could play this record for someone and they’d wonder what classic 80s hard rock band it is until you told them that the members of this band were probably just small kiddos in the 80s. The band isn’t out to re-invent the notion of what hard rock is, I could cite influences until the cows come home, but that doesn’t really matter. I will note that there is a big AC/DC vibe mainly in the guitar licks minus the bluesy stuff. If you’re looking for a simple, fun, rocking record, Dirty Loveguns aren’t apt to disappoint. Their songwriting is tight enough to stand on its own and there is even some “hit song” quality, especially with album opener “Top Down.” Go get rid of your Black Tide and Airbourne albums and pick this up.
