The Dirty Denims release video for track “Band Not A Brand”
Dutch rockers The Dirty Denims consisting of lead vocalist / guitarist Mirjam Sieben, guitarist Jeroen Teunis, bassist Marc Eijkhout and drummer Suzanne Driessen have released a video for their track “Band Not A Brand” from their latest album Ready Steady Go!.
In an interview with Sleaze Roxx back in mid-August 2020, Teunis and Sieben were asked what was the idea behind the song “Band Not A Brand” to which Teunis replied: “Should I say it? Well, I don’t know what it’s like on that side of the ocean but over here, you have stores like H&M that sell band shirts for 10 Euros, 10 dollars. The Ramones, I think that every store sells Ramones here. Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, Metallica… So there are a lot of young girls running around in shirts of bands that they don’t even know. They think maybe, ‘Oh Ramones! That’s a cool brand.’” Sieben added: “At first, we thought, ‘Oh! Young girls have some great taste.’”
Teunis followed: “But also, I went back to my parents’ place and my sister was also wearing. So I asked her, ‘What’s your favorite record’? [The sister replied] ‘Errr. I don’t know. I don’t know.’ So it’s a shirt from a band that you’ve never heard. So then, a band is not a brand. That’s the back story. Maybe there are some girls or boys that will think that will say, ‘Let’s listen to that music’ and they will like it. I hope so.”
