I’m featuring one of MY picks this week…The Dirty Nil of Dundas, Ontario! I caught these Canadian punx a few months back at Shea Stadium and let me tell you, your boy was blown away. They play a certain brand of Canadian punk rock and roll that I feel really couldn’t be emulated here in the States, though informed by American punk rock of yore such as Fugazi and Nirvana. They last released the 5-song EP SMITE so I’m featuring those songs as well as two songs from their earlier 2011 release Fuckin’ Up Young. I spoke to singer Luke Bentham and we discussed best practices in crossing the Canadian border, what being a “rock band” means now, and David Cronenberg. Let’s get nuts!
