The Standells - Dirty Water

Look Back In Anger: Cali based Rock-n-Rollers, The Standells, were early pioneers of transitioning modern Pop from the Doo Wop sound to a more Beatles/Stones-esque guitar based tone. Dirty Water was a major hit that encapsulates The Standells defining, laid back, form of Garage Rock. Sounding a bit like a love-in between Brian Jones and The Black Lips, this song really kicks!

Having recently completed a month-long national USA tour and headlined at Festival Beat in Parma Italy, the Standells are still kicking ass today.
