For one night only, The Dixon’s return to play Whelan’s main venue.
In 1988 or thereabouts, The Dixons drifted together to make a noise which bore little relation to anything else that was knocking around at the time. It was fun but serious, light but heavy, accomplished but amateurish and ramshackle but right.
Eschewing the over-gated minimalism and snake-hipped, leather-trousered posturing so prominent in pop/rock at the time, and without really realising it, the four young musicians crafted something altogether special, with a garagy lo-fi sound that now seems to have pre-cursed some of the mannered beardy Americana you hear now.
