From the beaches of Normandy to the wilds of Brazil THE CAVEMEN have already proven their road-warrior tour spirit on both sides of the Atlantic this year. Yet clearly for these hedonistic hominids too much is never enough!
Like a bat outta some kinda post-apocalyptic hell New Zealand’s premier troglodytic bunch are hitting Europe for 6 weeks in September/October, decimating towns everywhere from Portugal to The Balkans.
After annihilating The Americas (as well as a few key European festival targets) over spring/summer 2018 the lads have steadily built quite a reputation for their unapologetic rock ‘n’ roll debauchery both on and off-stage. Clearly if you put a guitar and beer in these guys hands you better prepare yourself for one hell of a party cause these guys ain’t for the fainthearted!
Yet despite all their seemingly ceaseless schedule of boozing and bad behaviour, these degenerates haven’t been resting on their laurels. They’re also racing out of the turnstyles with a brand new 7″!! Will these new tracks perhaps present the new, ‘Soft Side of The Cavemen?’ Hell NO! They’re a couple balls-to-the-wall, high octane rock n roll crunchers recorded and released in Brazil on Mandinga Records and Dirty Water Records in London.
Indeed THE CAVEMEN are truly dancing on a razor’s edge of what is humanely possible in rock ‘n’ roll touring. With 36 shows in almost as many days you better catch ’em in the flesh before the reaper does!

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 184.108.40.206’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.
