The Outlaw Orchestra - ‘Dirty Diesel’

Words by Anselm Anderson 
The Outlaw Orchestra is a four piece from the Deep South….of the UK.  Their music has been described as a melting pot of styles, which is evident on their debut record Dirty Diesel; a heady mixture of rowdy bar songs and fun- loving lyrics, encompassing bluegrass, country, southern-rock and rockabilly that’s sure to raise more than a little hell.
Opener Too Much Willie Nelson is a rambunctious track full of country swagger, fused with high tempo harmonica that responds to the cries of “I ain’t Johnny Cash” in the chorus.
The album gains momentum after each track with the addition of some ferocious finger picking and gravelly vocals that suit the record’s southern roots .Chicken bones is a standout track that’s steeped in old-time rockabilly and humour-filled lyrics. Their vibe is reflected through their adaptability, especially defined on the slow moving ballad Send Some Whiskey Home and the upbeat It Ain’t Right; a 70’s rock and Americana combustion.  
Dirty Diesel is an action packed and fun record that supplement’s the bands’ ability to endear any listener. They have previously sold out the Portsmouth Guildhall, plus enjoyed an appearance at Bristol’s Grillstock Festival alongside Hayseed Dixie and The Darkness, so there’s been no shortage of success. This year also saw them gain endorsements from Cloven Hoof rum and Swedish brewers Pistonhead for their ‘bands to watch out for’. That, they certainly are.

Catch The Outlaw Orchestra live at Planet Rock’s Winter’s End festival 2018.
