It’s Easter weekend and what better time is there to premiere a new track by those divine messengers of rock and roll – The Cavemen.
‘My Baby Knows‘ is from the new Dirty Water comp titled – ahem – ‘The New Testament‘ and it’s a delectable serving of trashy pub rock and roll that’ll leave your ears ringing.
The New Zealanders are also hitting the road and it all starts tonight this weekend in France.
‘The New Testament‘ is out May 31, and it’s an International affair featuring tracks from France’s Les Lullies; The Scaners; Spain’s Nave Nodriza; Japan’s The Fadeaways; as well as Black Mambas from the USA!

The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club’s name is derived from The Standells’ 1966 hit ‘Dirty Water’ which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.
Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, Country Teasers, Black Lips, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers, The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The 126.96.36.199’s, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original ’60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.
Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
