Trashtown, the album's title, is an impressive work of art […] The two-man band is one that is rarely
successful. Only a select few have pulled off, but they have done so exceptionally well […] Dirty Trainload
can be counted among them, of course, with a sound that is marked by strong rhythms, plenty of
distortion, bluesy six-string work, jingly tambourine stomps, lung-emptying harmonica bits, and slightly
high-pitched, dirty and naturally resonant female vocals. […] So call 'em what you like -- alternative blues, nu blooz, dissident blues, or any of the other terms associated with their sound. You will get Dirty
Trainload either way.
