Volume 2 of the Age of Terror trilogy.
Released on Brah Records in 2006.
Dirty Faces – GET RIGHT WITH GOD – Brah! Records (Release date –11/21/06).
The Dirty Faces play bang-up rock‘n roll. Pushers of that punkass sound. Rickety Rock, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the home of Rock & Roll. The band has suffered from and been propelled and inspired by every stupid rock cliché ever to have propelled, inspired and destroyed the health and sanity (not to mention careers) of its members, and yet somehow, the Dirty Faces just keep on getting better. Drugs, relationship problems and sheer laziness are some of the reasons band members leave the Dirty Faces. Sometimes they come back for the same reasons. Drummers come and go, the notion of excellent musicianship is alternately embraced and discarded, and yet the Dirty Faces continue to set higher and higher standards of what a good rock’n roll record can and indeed should sound like in 2006. “The Dirty Faces sound pretty much as advertised. They play rock and roll like the Stillers play football -- hard, angry, muddy, with a chip on their shoulder, and a playbook that has all the unnecessary pages ripped out. It's heavy, but not really punk, not really metal, and not garage rock in the color-coordinated matching-suits sense. It's rusty, dirty Pittsburgh rock with bad attitude to burn…” Mike Machosky, Greensburg/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Get Right with God, out on Brah Records in November of 2006, is the second of a trilogy that started with 2005’s SUPERAMERICAN (Brah Records, 2005). The Dirty Faces managed to keep the same line-up together over the course of the past year, although they’ve discarded the two-drummer assault they used when touring SUPERAMERICAN. The band is T. Glitter on vocals, Tricky Powers on bass, Tweekit and Leadfoot Powers on guitars, Sweet Willie Powers on the drums and Bloody H. Powers on keyboards. As on SUPERAMERICAN, one track features founding member Dickie Powers and former drummer God-of-Fortune Powers. The Dirty Faces believe in acknowledging their own history, while moving on. Get Right with God is more focussed, musically-- harder and heavier—than SUPERAMERICAN.
