MISSISSIPPI LIVE & THE DIRTY DIRTY - Going Down
Just when you're ready to give up on mankind in terms of straight forward, no BS rock, along comes Mississippi Live & The Dirty Dirty. Mississippi-born Connely Farr moved to Vancouver in the '90s and hooked up with guitarist and producer Jon Wood. As Mississippi Live, they released a self-titled album in 2009. They put together a touring band rounded out by Jay B Johnson on bass and drummer Ben Yeardley - and The Dirty Dirty was born.
Released in 2015 and full of angst and might, GOING DOWN is their third album, and takes full advantage of slick production, strong writing, and clever licks. They know the value of a good riff, and they're not afraid to drill it into your brain.
