Dirty Water Records USA
Dirty Water Records USA
Dirty Water Records USA is the shameless American little sister of Dirty Water Records (London) and your turntable's hot new girlfriend. DWR USA is an independent arm of Dirty Water Records (London), a London-based record label (and club, the Dirty Water Club) specializing in contemporary bands playing original r&b, beat, '60s garage, trash and punk music.
The Darts
The Darts
THE DARTS (US) are an all-grrrrl garage-psych-rock supergroup featuring Nicole Laurenne (The Love Me Nots, Motobunny, Zero Zero), Rikki Styxx (The Two Tens, The Dollyrots, Thee Outta Sites), Christina Nunez (The Love Me Nots, Casual Encounters, The Madcaps), and Michelle Balderrama (Brainspoon).

The band formed in early 2016 when, after watching each other’s bands from the sidelines for years, Nicole and Michelle realized there was no good reason why they shouldn’t just start writing songs together already. With six songs ready, Rikki and Michelle recorded their tracks in Los Angeles and then Nicole and Christina tracked their parts in Phoenix. Arizona producer Bob Hoag (The Format, Dear And The Headlights, The Ataris) then masterfully stirred the mess together over a piping hot console. The result is two smoking 10” vinyl EPs full of garage riffs, girl-group harmonies, fuzz bass, farfisa organ, badass drum fills, and all-around lo-fi-turned-hi-fi goodness. Soon after their October 2016 debut EP release, the singles “Running Through Your Lies” and “Revolution” enjoyed instant radio airplay, “Take What I Need” was selected by Sirius/XM’s Underground Garage channel as “The Coolest Song In The World” and author Stephen King even tweeted about the band. By the end of 2016, The Darts had played their first shows around the Western US and had signed with London’s Dirty Water Records (Dirty Fences, MFC Chicken, King Salami, Archie and The Bunkers, Muck and The Mires, The Morlocks). In 2017, the band toured the Southern US, were featured on CBS (Dallas), performed on PBS Houston, signed deals with licensing companies Media Horse (US) and Wipe Out Music (UK), toured with Weird Omen (FR), toured Europe, including an appearance at the Cosmic Trip Festival, arranged US tours with The Jackets (CH) and Escobar (FR), and got numerous offers for European events and festivals in 2018.

Me.Ow., the band’s upcoming full-length record, will be released in September 2017 on pink vinyl by Dirty Water Records, along with a vinyl re-release of the first two EPs as one full-length album. The band has produced two DIY music videos to date and plans to release three more by Fall 2017.
Bee Bee Sea
Bee Bee Sea
Bee Bee Sea is a three piece band from an industrial town in Northern Italy, with garage-psych songs and a punk attitude. In 2015, they released their self-titled debut album (first pressing is now sold out) via Glory Records, the band’s own label. During that year, they started working with Rome-based booking agency Asap Arts and toured Italy, Switzerland, France and Germany, supporting Thee Oh Sees, Black Lips, The Night Beats and King Khan & the Shrines.

In 2016, Bee Bee Sea released an EP, 3 Songs and Jacques Dutronc (Glory Records), on digital and cassette. Tracks were soon featured in major commercial campaigns including ads by Fiat, DC Skateboarding, New Balance and DMAX. In April 2017, the band recorded their most recent full-length, Sonic Boomerang, live at Tup Studio in Brescia (IT) with producers Bruno Barcella and Alessio Lonati. The record will be released on Nov. 17, 2017, by Dirty Water Records USA (cassette, digital) and Wild Honey Records (vinyl).
The Atom Age
The Atom Age
The Atom Age find their inspiration from the dust covered collections of unhinged 60’s Punk and R&B, whose crazed energy was once misconceived as a better fit for your trashcan than for your turntable. While taking many of their cues from these primitive pilgrims of punk, The Atom Age still strive to lay down their own modernized sound.

Coming together in 2009 in Oakland, CA The Atom Age immediately hit the road. Touring heavily enabled the band to develop their powerful live show and unique style. After making some noise in the Bay Area’s scene Asian Man Records offered to release the band's second full length in 2012. During a break from touring early in 2014, the members felt it was time to radically refine and hone their sound in preparation for their third full length. A year of writing and recording commenced with the inclusion of a sixth member on 60’s Combo Organ.

The new full length “Hot Shame” blends the Rock ‘N’ Roll swagger of Link Wray with the angular punk of Fugazi and Hot Snakes. A haunting tenor saxophone and transistor organ combo provide an added layer of tone ranging from The Stooges' Funhouse at their darkest, to The Famous Flames at their most energetic. Co Producer Blag Dahlia from legendary garage punkers The Dwarves lent his greasy ears and formidable Rock ‘N’ Roll knowledge to the band while they tracked the record themselves at their studio; District Recording.
Mean Motor Scooter
Mean Motor Scooter
Mean Motor Scooter is a four-piece Garage Rock band from Fort Worth, Texas. Their self-titled debut EP came out in August 2015. In March 2016 the band released two singles "Naked Brunch" and "Such a Seducer." They were awarded "Best Rock Band" at the 2016 Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards. In 2017 the group was awarded "EP of the Year", "Band of the Year" and "Artist of the Year" by the Fort Worth Weekly. Their first full length record, Hindu Flying Machine was released in October 2017 by Dirty Water Records USA.
Green Slime DJ's
Green Slime DJ's
Green Slime are a DJ duo consisting of long time L.A. record collectors Rick Barzell and Roger Mars. Since 2014, Slime has become L.A.'s biggest 60's dance craze.

Green Slime features only the finest guest DJ's and live bands.

It takes place every 1st Saturday at The Short Stop in Echo Park in sunny Southern California. Expect to hear everything from rhythm & blues to garage punk dancers on the 45rpm vinyl format, all carefully hand selected. Please be advised however, of the danger of it growing and spreading beyond the warped imagination of the greatest human intellect and exploding in unspeakable horror. The Green Slime are coming for you.
