Beginning a bit like a swaggering teenager that has an attitude problem, ‘You’d Look Better With A Bullet In You’ is a ferocious four and a half minutes of real honest music.
This is the brand new single from Dirty Rotten Souls and it means business.
The three-piece have got it absolutely spot on with this track, both musically and lyrically, and it’s great to hear them take another step forward with their sound. It’s not a surprise though, seeing as Dirty Rotten Souls are fast becoming a local favourite.
‘You’d Look Better With A Bullet In You’ is a politically correct rock song and by politically correct, I mean it correctly sums up the shambles that is modern day politics. Loudly and proudly, not once attempting to disguise where they come from, Dirty Rotten Souls bring a torch to reignite the fire in your heart and a riff heavy enough to break the door down at No. 10 Downing Street.
It wouldn’t be a Dirty Rotten Souls track without a dirty rotten guitar solo to round everything off, and don’t worry, ‘You’d Look Better With A Bullet In You’ doesn’t disappoint. A short-build up leads into a solo that seems like it could go on and on and on.. or maybe that’s just because it’s coated with the same anger and hatred, that is so obviously present in Mark Bailey’s vocals.
“Fer gods sake Dave, pull yer trousers up” may quite possibly be the greatest lyric I’ve heard in a long time. No metaphors or beating about the bush. Dirty Rotten Souls say it like it is, and that’s why we love them.
