We don’t have to tell you that the 1970s were the greatest decade in rock ‘n’ roll. Yes, the ’50s have a certain new-born puppy charm, but a lot of the music of that era was fouler than a well-used puppy pad. And the ’60s — yeah, a lot of great bands came out of that era, but far too often the music was geared toward teasing virginal teeny boppers. It wasn’t until the 1970s that rock ‘n’ roll finally put on its big-boy pants and dropped the cutesy nickname. From then on, it was simply called rock. Well, if the post-Flower Power era is your fave time for music, then Maryland’s the Dirty Names are sure to tickle your fancy. The Dirty Names’ latest offering, Double Your Pleasure, is a giddy, go-with-the-flow throwback to the glory days of arena rock, and the band wouldn’t have it any other way. “Shit is rough enough on people as it is, and if you’re going to go out to a show, you should be having a good time,” says Dirty Names’ bassist Sam Wetterau. When asked about his band’s decision to avoid the self-indulgent, navel-gazing morass that so many modern rock bands fall into, Wetterau says, “We are more of tit and ass gazers. We are wizards and we have long shafts.” Let there be cock rock. —Chris Haire
