Right, that’s enough with the fucking pleasantries. This song is awesome.
The Dirty Nil are a three piece band from Dundas, Ontario that make aggressive, loud and fast-paced punk rock. “Wrestle Yu To Husker Du” is a track taken from their debut LP, Higher Power, which was recently released on Dine Alone Records.
Right, that’s enough with the fucking pleasantries. This song is awesome. Lyrically, musically, stylistically, this is everything I’m looking for in a rock song and the video compliments it like a goddamn dream. “I don’t care about your man, no I don’t care about him.” That refrain is repeated frequently and it’s a powerful message. And you know what, I genuinely believe he doesn’t give a shit about him.
The video depicts the dark, sweaty live shows of a rock band in a small venue quite beautifully. Shot at seemingly two different locations, the band are smashing the track out in front of adoring fans. The effect of the camera work makes it seem like it was shot for VHS in the early 90s, which enhances the vibe and style they want to get across; that they don’t give a fuck!
This is the perfect introduction to a band that have the potential to make some serious waves in the skater punk world. There’s nowhere near enough dirty, filthy, gnarly rock’n’roll in music at the moment, so stop whatever boring shit you’re doing, watch this video and turn up the volume.
