Dirty, Dirty

Jim Keays really requires no introduction. His band Masters Apprentices were one of this countries most successful rock acts in the 70's with such hits as 'Turn Up Your Radio' & 'Because I Love You'. There’s no precedent in this country for someone of Jim Keays’ vintage (65) to be making a ‘garage’ record, a raw, intense rock and roll album while many other artists are busy making their acoustic / jazz / blues / country / blah blah / introspective / retrospective / whatever albums and turning their backs on what made them unique, vital and popular in the first place. Not that there’s anything wrong with any of that (hell, Jim has even made an acoustic album for goodness’ sake!), but it is a little surprising that an album like Dirty, Dirty has not been made before. Teaming up with Davey Lane on guitar (You Am I/Pictures) with his good friend Brett Wolfenden (The Pictures, Rushcutter) for drumming duties and the producer of this album Ted Lethborg on bass, Jim has made the album he's always wanted to make. A line-up of obscure Garage Punk, Freakbeat and Psycho Pop songs. All sorts of one-hit – wonders, lost classics and weird concoctions of early garage sounds and a few slightly more known ones. Ted sifted through these compilations and chose ones that he thought would suit and then set about learning them at rehearsals. They were then recorded in the time-honoured way of playing them in the studio as a live band, hardly any multiple takes, most of it going down in one or two. Just basic, raw un-effected music. It was a joyous experience. The atmosphere comes across. It’s not about sex, drugs and/or money; it’s about the love of doing it. Always has been. A resurrection to rank alongside Whispering Jack and Jimmy Little’s Messenger.... a talent that’s never dimmed. A great rock ‘n’ roll record. Jim Keays is a national treasure. And his time has come again. Four and half stars. Jeff Jenkins, Stack Magazine
