Produced by Grammy Award-winning Sylvia Massy (the Black Crowes, R.E.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, Slayer and Tool), the 10-tracks comprising Dirt in the Skirt are a feast of “outback blues and outlaw attitude”. Since their inception in 2007, BugGiRL have covered a distance of over 186,000 miles, playing over 280 shows to more than 200,000 fans across the globe, including California’s Ink N’ Iron Festival, Berlin’s Wacken PopKomm Showcase and have toured alongside the Damned, The Germs, The Bones, Valient Thorr, Mad Sin, The Bronx, Stiff Little Fingers, X, Danko Jones, Nick Oliveri, and Girlschool, among others. Dirt in the Skirt follows 2007’s Rock ‘n Roll Hell and 2009’s Blood, Sweat and Beers, and a slew of glowing reviews across the U.K., Europe, and Australia.
"For an amalgam of a rock woman, minimalism, mangy and dirty garage punk blues, look no further than the Down Under duo BugGiRL. With a significant Rock factor, even the cover fits like a fist to the eye." - Triggerfish.de, Germany
"Their blend of The Cult, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Rose Tattoo is infectious, energetic and almost gravity defying. BugGirl might just be a duo, but they make enough racket for a whole orchestra."
- Classic Rock Magazine, UK
"It’s the sound of Nick Oliveri pounding Jon Spencer's head against a bass drum ... makes Brody Dalle look like Tinkerbell."-
"Loud, fast, sleazy, it sounds BugGiRL. With titles referring to speed, motor oil, sweat, blood and beer and lots of fun. It's got everything that rock is made of..." - MedazzaRock, Switzerland
"A smashing female on guitar and vocals and a four-handed man on drums!" – Rock Aces, Greece
