Second offering from Bostonian’s DIRT MALL ‘’Pacifuego’’ is a coming together of THE RAMONES fighting it out with KARMA TO BURN, KYUSS and AC/DC. Featuring short, sharp, raucous bursts of Grungy Garage Rock that; let’s face it, American’s do very well.


A great band for the fraternity house party or just letting loose with a few beers DIRT MALL are nothing less than enthusiastic and certainly not in for fame and glory, a good time party band. Nothing more nothing less.


I don’t reckon there’s much longevity with this band, forever placed to be treading the boards of an alcohol and piss soaked stage, battling against conformity and uniformity. Nonetheless they seem content enough and the track ‘’Rats’’ is a real gem.


If the Fonz ever got balls to front a band DIRT MALL might that band, Al’s diner their permanent residency and folk would just have a ball listening to them.
