The Dirty Three have just released their remarkable new album, Toward the Low Sun, their first since Cinder in 2005. Originating in Melbourne back in 1993, first playing as a pub act with Warren Ellis strapping on a guitar pickup to his violin for a distorted feedback-drenched tone. From that point on they grew in stature within the Melbourne music scene until the release of their demo Sad and Dangerous. The album, along with subsequent tours with Sonic Youth, John Cale, and again Pavement, led to a record deal with Chicago’s Touch and Go. The Dirty Three then toured the US and throughout Europe and the UK, releasing their seventh major album Cinder back in 2005. This was the first album to feature vocals. Dirty Three’s last tour of Australia was in 2009 when they performed their album Ocean Songs in its entirety as part of the Don’t Look Back classic albums series – a run of shows that sold out across the country. Dirty Three play Lismore’s Star Court Theatre on Friday.
