Dirtblonde are Ivan Hell (guitar) and Lula Blue (vocals, bass). Debut EP 'White Noise, Rubber Heart' was released on CD in May ’07 on the Filthy Little Angels record label, and is now available on iTunes.
Dirtblonde have been played on XFM, BBC Radio One and BBC Radio 6. Alan McGee of Creation Records fame, also played ‘The Hangmen’ on his BBC radio show, and compared the band to The Jesus And Mary Chain.
The song was also called “one of the loudest records of the year so far” by John Kennedy (XFM). Other legendary DJs who also played the single include Steve Lamacq and Nic Harcourt of KCRW in California.
The band toured as fas afield as Brazil and New York (when they were booked to play Death Disco by BP Fallon) and played at the Leeds Festival – the biggest in Britain.
In 2009, Dirtblonde played at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. The local press named Dirtblonde one of the Top 8 “must-see” bands at SXSW, listing Dirtblonde alongside names such as Primal Scream…not bad, eh?
In 2010 the band released the limited-edition 'Brooklyn / White Horses' single on cassette tape.
