My initial exposure to Dirty Fences was by stumbling across their infectiously catchy song “Judy (Don’t Go)” on YouTube. Dressed in drag, the music video is styled like a 1960’s Shangri Las-like set. Think of the Shangri Las’ version of “Shout” meets the Ramones, but more amped up on the raw energy of 1970’s New York-styled punk rock. Intrigued, I soon found out that they were coming through Salt Lake City, Utah on 14 September 2015 with Nashville natives’ Faux Ferocious. During Dirty Fences set, I was blown away by their stunning performance. They displayed an intense energy that is essential to a solid rock ‘n’ roll show. I also found that this energy is perfectly translated onto their new album, Full Tramp—released on Slovenly Recordings. Needlessly to say, it’s been a part of a constant rotation on my record player. After I heard that they were about to hit Europe for a Fall tour, I decided to get the word on what happens behind the scenes by discussing the track “Judy (Don’t Go)”, their U.S tour, Riot Fest in Chicago and their plans for returning to Europe. To do this, I sat down with Jack Daves and got the scoop.
