Filthy Tricks are a hard hitting 5 piece indie rock and roll band from the beating industrial heart of Warrington. Originally formed back in 2016, they returned in 2018 with some new faces, sounding bigger, better and bolder and oozing rock ‘n’ roll soul that the genre desperately longs for. The band’s influences range from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, to Sly & the Family Stone and The Violent Femmes.
The band recorded their debut EP ‘Run The River’ at Red City Recordings in Manchester. Their first single Black Diamond Eyes was released on Saturday 13th April at the launch of Warrington venue LiveBar, and were joined by Sky Valley Mistress who described the night as “rock n roll done right.”
Their debut EP ‘Run The River’ was released on 29th June 2019, with the EP showing the band’s range of influences and sounds across its four tracks. Talking of the opening track ‘Sixty Two’, vocalist Liam Rimmer says, “Sixty Two for me was one of those songs that seemed to effortlessly fit right. I remember the moment it came together, practising in our old practice rooms where Filthy Tricks initially grew. The guitar intro which Gerard came up with seemed to instantly hit me and I, after a few bars, came into spitting lyrics over the riff. The ones that still stand in the song today. From that point onwards and if you’ve ever been involved in music you just know you’re onto something special when a song comes together effortlessly.”
Filthy Tricks have been gigging for less than 12 months but have already gained a lot of attention for their energetic performances. As well as headlining shows close to home at LiveBar, Fat Cat Ballroom and The Lounge in Warrington, they’ve also headlined Night & Day Cafe in Manchester and Liverpool’s Zanzibar. After their set at Warrington Music Festival, Mike Bee (guitarist of Winachi Tribe) described the lads as "A powerhouse of a band!”
