The Dirty Americans

One of Michigan's top live acts, the Dirty Americans are dedicated to the heavy stoner riffs and workman-like raw vibe you can only find in one place...Detroit!.  Drawing inspiration from and playing with such legendary Michigan  rockers as the MC5, Iggy and the Stooges, Alice  Cooper, Ted Nugent ,  and Kid Rock (opening both massive northern michigan shows on Boyne Mountain)....the Dirty Americans cary a heavy torch!
Roadrunner Record's promotion of the first album Strange Generation produced by Paul Ebersold (Saliva/3 Doors Down) in 2004 generated a top 10 video in Japan and the UK, music on prime time TV (Alias) and songs in such playstation games as Wayne Gretzky Hockey, ATV3, American Chopper, and GT4.  
Their success overseas led to major festival appearances around the world including  Japan's summer sonic festivals, Turino's Freefest with the Stooges, a Co-head liner with Jet at Festimad/Spain,  as well as Download Festival/Donnington,UK, Rock Am Ring & Rock Im Park/Germany...all the while maintaining their do it yourself Motor City rebelious stance.
The new album "BLACK FEATHER is a self produced (JEFF PIPER/JEREMIAH PILBEAM) full length effort that was mixed by Tim Patalan (Sponge, Taproot) and features a cover of the Bob Seger System's "Lucifer" on which keyboardist Jimmie Bones (Kid Rock) appears.  More able to experiment since their break from Roadrunner Records, this is a darker and considerably more psychedelic dig out the headphones, turn it up, and tune out!
