I’m back again with another new TEEN BEAT for all you beaters out there. This time we’re meeting up with one of our favorite new local bands from around town - DIRTY DREAMS. If you’ve yet to catch the guys or hear any of their tunes, we really think you should make a special effort to seek them out. Shouldn’t be too hard since they’ve got a lot of shows coming up – including one this Saturday night at Little Hamilton for the Sex Cult 7″ release show and the recently announced FREAKIN’ WEEKEND. Their music really spans across a few different genres from shoegaze-y to psych-y surf to dream pop to post-punk fuzz — but it all rips. Anyway, click on through to check out another one of our always-awesome, always-insightful, always-entertaining interviews and get to know the Dirty Dreamers for yourself…
Television Addict: What are your names, and what do you play in the band?
Marshall: Bass yo face and vocals.
Mac: I play a guitar. Reid also plays a guitar and Sludgefist plays the drums/keyboard.
TA: How long have you been a band and how did it get started?
Mac: We formed in July because Casey made us play a show and billed us as Stairway to Hell.
TA: What was the last show you played and what’s the next one?
Marshall: We just played a house show in the Boro with Mom & Dad, which is always a good time. We are opening for the one and only $£X <v/+ [SEX CULT] this weekend. So stoked!
TA: Three songs you’re really into right now…
Marshall: The Murmaids: “Popsicles and Icicles”
Dark Sister: “Haunt U”
Kraftwerk: “Ananas Symphonie” (Pineapple Symphony)
Mac: Jean-Paul Sartre Experience- I Like Rain
Enjoy- New Sun
Red Krayola- Hurricane Fighter Plane
Also, every song on the Mind Spiders and Total Control LPs from last year.
TA: What are your plans in the next 6 months?
Marshall: Skate, Skate, Skate and band stuff.
Mac: To be four months away from the end of the world.
TA: What are your plans in the next 25 years?
Marshall: Probably living in California, wishing I still played in a band called Dirty Dreams
Mac: If all goes well, the human race will not be enslaved by an evil robot army, I’ll have a job that I like, and music will still be interesting.
TA: When can the people expect a physical release from you guys?
Mac: Everything is kind of up in the air right now, but May seems like as good of a time as any to have a release…
TA: In as accurate detail as you can, please tell us thoroughly about the last actual “dirty dream” you had…
Marshall: Last night about yo mama. —— [Editor's Note: OH SHIT HE GOT YOU!]
Mac: It’s like 60 Minutes on acid… I’ll tell you later.
TA: We have a sort of hard time classifying your music as one sort of genre, could you now please make up something for us to refer to you as? Thanks in advance…
Marshall: Bitch Please
Mac: Bitch, please.
Like we’ve mentioned a few times in this post, the guys are playing a show this Saturday night at Little Hamilton — go and check out what you’ve been missing. We’ve heard word on the street that they’ll have a debut 7″ dropping sometime this Spring and may have a split-cassette coming even sooner. One can only hope! As always – if you’d like to be featured in TEEN BEAT — shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell him all about yourself.
