This month we are featuring Christopher Scum from The Dirty Works,
their new E.P. Get Wrecked and their new documentary Rebel Scum.
"Raw, gritty and brutally honest stories from a guy who sounds like he gargles with whiskey & gravel. Combine singer Christopher Scum’s lyrics with the furious drumming of B. Riot and the blazing guitar sounds of Steven Crime and you get this beautiful little mess. Get Wrecked is a must-have for anyone looking to replace today's polished music with pure true attitude. If Darby Crash was ever friends with Hank Williams, they probably would've gotten drunk together listening to this album."
The Dirty Works are a three-piece southern country punk-rock band straight out of the bible-belt. The Dirty Works’ first two efforts, locally released Frogwater Injection & Biscuits and Liquor gained them local attention. now with the release of their newest E.P., they are on top of their game.
Chris has also recently released a solo album entitled 50 Acres of Pain, this is a raw stripped-down acoustic blues approach to his tales.
In late 2005 the band was offered an unexpected & exciting opportunity by Atlanta based Worldstorm Arts Lab, who spent two years following and shooting film of The Dirty Works. The final result, a documentary titled Rebel Scum the Movie, has been gaining rave reviews. Rebel Scum is a look at The Dirty Works and the often unstable, unpredictable, bloody, dysfunctional and dangerous world they live in.
Lead singer Christopher Scum’s straightforward, sometimes crude yet insightful lyrics vividly attack a hodgepodge of subject matter such as addiction, governmental control, loss of rights and religious hypocrisy.
Celebrating five years as a band, the guys are already working on material for their upcoming summer CD, and waiting for the official release of Rebel Scum the Movie. Overall, if you want honest, basic, hard hitting, dirty-punk/rock-n-roll with a definite Southern accent, check out The Dirty Works, and if you want to see a truly captivating train-wreck of a documentary check out Rebel Scum the Movie.
