thE diRTy ruGs facts and figures

thE diRTy ruGs play completely improvised, all-instrumental music. They have never played the same song twice, nor have they ever tried to work out a song before they perform it. Drawing from friendships with each other that have continued over half their lives, and experience playing in a wide variety of bands for nearly as long, the band's method of composing is simply to listen while playing. Unencumbered by predetermined song structures, the band pulls from its collective musical unconscious to create mesmerizing sound-scapes of pop, punk, psychedelic soul and thoroughly uptight cringe rock reminiscent of the new wave movement of the late 1970's and early 1980's.
