Sound Description

Some call Knoxville's Dirty Guv'nahs a Southern rock band, but they probably don't sound a lot like most of the outfits you've heard the term applied to. They're a damn sight more primal, for one thing, plying nasty, raw-boned rhythms and searing guitar sounds pilfered from early Rolling Stones—Brits who, by virtue of their abundance of stateside influences, were Southern rockers by proxy.
And they bear little or no trace of the bands most often associated with the genre—Skynyrd and the Outlaws, et al.—bands whose Southern experience was filtered through layers of bombast that had scarce else to do with Dixie. (Mike Gibson)
