Contrary to popular belief, Cleveland doesn't really rock, but hometown zeroes Prisonshake do which helps explain why Robert Griffin and Doug Enkler moved the band to St. Louis.
As if to prove they haven't been wasting all their time over the past 13 years, they've made Dirty Moons a double disc. Not that a single CD couldn't hold all the mind-blowing material they'd stockpiled; it's more likely that the whole ludicrous idea of releasing a two-CD package at a time when the rest of the planet is digitally downloading single tracks was just too tempting to pass up. That's just the way Prisonshake roll.
Long-time fans will appreciate the fact that Enkler and Griffin have made no concessions to any of the popular trends that have come and gone since grunge died and still rock ferociously hard with sloppy style like no one else since the Replacements became the Paul Westerberg Experience. There are far too many pointless overdubs, inside jokes and random voice-mail clips on Dirty Moons for mass appeal, but it's still an entertaining antidote to precious indie rock twaddle.
