I'm definitely the wrong person to be writing this up, considering all the Drama I have with one of the dooshbags in this band, but at one time, I swear, Steve O'Hara wasn't a drugged out, drunken dumb ass, and he was a member of a really good Local band called Dirty Sanchez. They had a really catchy, Pop Punk kind of sound, with grinding guitar work and intricate leads, and pounding drum lines and lots of 'whoah-whoah' type of back up vocal work. They were kind of like a mash up of Propagandhi, Ten Foot Pole, and Good Riddance, bands like that. Look, they weren't trying to re-invent the wheel with their tunes, no, they were more like a band comprised of a bunch of friends who just wanted to get together, drink some beers, and play the kind of Punk music they liked and loved. Nothing wrong with that, right? Dirty Sanchez gigged around heavy, opening for the good bands when they came to town, and yet perfectly at home sloshing through the blood and the beer and the piss at the Cooler Lounge on a Sat. night. Depending on how drunk you, or how drunk the band were on any given night, Dirty Sanchez either played a great set of tunes while having a few beers, or they stumbled and stuttered through a beer drinking session while playing a few tunes. Believe me, I know. If I wasn't playing gigs with them in one of my many bands, then I was in the audience watching them tear it up on whatever stage they were stumbling around on. I seen 'em so many times I've lost count. Recently I found some old photos I had taken of Dirty Sanchez playing at the Emergency Room back in 2007, and I was re-posting them on the website (click here to see them) when I had a brain fart of sorts, as I was not able to properly recall what the band sounded like. I didn't have anything by them on my CD rack, and I looked the band up on my iTunes, and found I had a demo by them and that was it. Hmmm. I gave it a listen, liked what I heard, and then had the brilliant idea of putting up here on the website for everyone to enjoy. My last posting on here was over 2 years ago, so I figured it was time to post something on here! LOL I remixed it a bit, made it a bit louder sounding, cleaned it up, and now present it to you, in all it's 320 kbs MP3 glory. I've put everything into a ZIP file, so if you want to add this piece of Local Las Vegas Punk Rock music history to your precious music collection, you can now do so. I never got their
Tofuyuk release, and I lost their Las Vegas, Nevada release a long ass time ago. This is all I got, and I'm giving it to you to enjoy. If you have any memories / thoughts on Dirty Sanchez, or this posting, share them in the comments section. Surely I can't be the only person who has this demo and remembers the band Dirty Sanchez?? Right? Right?? Hello???
